Lion Crest Wedding Invitation

Maria & Stavros

This couple was interested in creating an opulent luxury invitation suite that was personalized and had meaning meaningful details and symbolisms that were unique to them. We created a custom crest with two lions, each of which reflected the hobbies and backgrounds of the bride and groom. The center shield houses their initials which are written in the Greek alphabet and bordered with a Greek meandros border as a subtle nod to their culture and heritage.

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

We began the process with a few different variants on an invitation card and sleeve inspired by our signature Château design. We explored some different die cut shapes as well as color options within a purple, ivory and gold color palette.

The couple loved the look of a crest that incorporated their personal interests, culture and backgrounds. We investigated some different animals and settled on two matching lions flanking a regal shield.
