Modern nautical wedding invitation with letterpress details Invitation folder with a nautical map of New York



Modern Nautical Wedding Invitation

Amanda & Nate

With a contemporary nautical concept and venue, we created an unexpected wedding invitation suite which merged the idea of the nautical tradition of navigating the stars with the romance of ‘a love written in the stars’. The invitation features hand-illustrated navigational maps printed on turquoise and luxury epi-leather embossed papers in a palette of ivory and turquoise.

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 started the process by brainstorming some different cover and interior options for the invitation folder. The theme of the suite was a modern take on nautical design so we incorporated elements like compasses, nautical navigation and maps to tell this couple’s design story.

No design is ever complete without a unique monogram which is the centerpiece of the invitation suite. We explored a variety of monograms ranging from classic to more contemporary styles.

Design Options

We created a few different options for the folder cover. We picked a beautiful material with embossed waves as a nod to the nautical and ocean inspiration.

We created a custom illustration of Manhattan with nautical navigation elements woven throughout. The map was printed on the interior of the folder in shades of teal.

Design Extension

Once the look and feel of the suite were established, we extended the design to all other pieces in the suite from envelopes and reply cards to enclosure cards and custom postage stamps.

Before going to print we make sure that all design elements and graphics are perfected to ensure a smooth and successful print run. Even the envelope liners in this suite were adorned with our custom designed map.
