Andrew & Caroline’s Vintage Postcard Invite

The brief

From the get go Andrew and caroline had a firm idea of what they were after for their wedding invitation. They liked the look and feel of vintage postcards, with their ornate typography and the aged worn feel they evoke. They already had a great photo to use for the front of the invitation so it was just a matter of finding the right treatment for that and settling on the right fonts for the back.

I was able to find a scan of the “postcard” heading from an original 1920’s postcard and we tried three different type treatments before settling on the one you can see here. Andrew is from South Africa and Caroline is a Kiwi and we used an old stamp from each of their countries to finish off the design.

love it, share it!
