Art Deco New York Wedding Invitation

Melissa & Joey

For a distinctly Art Deco wedding at the iconic Edison Ballroom in New York City, we created this luxurious letterpress invitation suite which took inspiration from classic 1930s deco motifs and architecture including the Empire State Building and Chrysler Building. Every individual piece is designed to look different and unique while still tying together as a suite.

Since we are a studio specializing in custom work, we put together custom pricing for each project. For your convenience, below is a brief summary of the starting prices for both our collection and custom suites:

• $2,000 is the starting price for pre-existing designs for a 4-piece suite in 1-letterpress color. Suites with additional embellishments such as foil stamping, laser cut sleeves, pocket folders, etc. start at a higher price point of $3,000 and up.

• Custom invitations start at $2,750 for a 4-piece suite in 1-letterpress color.

• For budgets in the $1,000 range, many of our designs can be adapted to a economical price point using flat printing.


Note: A 4-piece suite includes Invitation, Reply Card, Outer Envelope and Reply Envelope. However a suite can be customized to your needs. Most pre-existing designs you see, whether it be from our custom page or collection page, can be made into a ready to order set

Sketches

We began the process with a few different design directions all centered around the style of the 1920s and Art Deco geometry. We designed a few alternate front and back designs which featured deco typography and unique geometric prints.

Monograms

No design is ever complete without a unique monogram which is the centerpiece of the invitation suite. We explored different variations of a modern monogram with a deco border.

Design Refinement

Once the look and feel were defined, we embarked on the process of extending the design to all the pieces in the invitation suite. We wanted to the suite to feel coordinated as a whole without being too “matchy matchy” so each item, from reply card to envelopes has different design elements that work harmoniously with the overall design aesthetic.

Pattern Design

We designed a custom geometric pattern to lock up perfectly with the unique Art Deco monogram we designed. The pattern was eventually usedon the back of the invitation. as well as throughout the suite.

Details, details, details….

Every element and detail in the suite is carefully considered. We continued the geometric pattern and applied it in different ways throughout the suite from the reply envelopes to the enclosure cards.

Illustration

Since the couple was getting married in New York City, we gave a special nod to the city by illustrating the NYC skyline in a vintage, 1920s travel poster style, which we then applied to the invitation envelope. A perfect first impression!
