Printed invitation – Ashley and Drew

We received an email a few months ago from Ashley, a bride who wanted to draw her own wedding invitations and have them letterpress printed. She mentioned that she had approached several letterpress printers who turned down her project because, not being a graphic designer, she was not entirely sure of how to get her design to letterpress-ready format. We offered to help, since we convert our drawings to letterpress-ready format on a daily basis.

The other letterpress printers also recommended that Ashley to “keep the design simple”. Since one of our unofficial mottos here is “More is more and less is boring”, we recommended she draw her heart out!

Here is the lovely result. Illustrated by Ashley, printed by us on 300 gsm Crane Lettra in ecru white.

    This is fabulous! Good to know your willingness to help creative people with less graphic knowledge. I agree More is more and less is boring:)
