Informal-beach-wedding-invite-1The brief

You can tell by the cheesy grins on their faces and the fact they are swigging their wine straight from the bottle that these two are are a couple of fun-loving characters. Also, judging from the fact that they are both wearing woolen beanies, they aren’t afraid of a little windy weather. It’s obvious, even from this single photo – these two make a great couple.

Rounded Cornors

I hope to introduce rounded corners as a print option soon. Rounded corners give invites an elegant, finished look helping to make the invite more memorable. There will be a small charge of around fifteen cents per invite for this (price yet to be finialised) but it doesn’t really add that much to the cost of the job. For example, a mid sized wedding requiring 50 invitations would only incur an additional charge of $7.50.

Ink invites has just received a makeover and the new and improved site is now up and running. Return visitors will notice that some of the less popular designs have been removed, new designs added and now each invitation is available in more than one format. Hopefully the site is easier to navigate and the pricing structure, easier to understand. In addition, many of the wedding invitations that remained have received a makeover; sometimes just a tweak of the fonts, at other times new images and new layouts have been used. Read more

Blind-emboss-wedding-invite-4The brief

It’s not very often we get a client brave enough to go with a blind emboss! A blind emboss is like a regular emboss in which a plate is made and this plate is pressed into the paper during the printing process. However in the case of a blind emboss, no ink is applied to the plate and the only effect in a dented but otherwise unprinted piece of paper. Read more

Dandelion-wedding-invitation-with-band-21The brief

Suzanne wanted to use our dandelion wedding invitation but had a few ideas of her own. Using that as a basis she wanted the grey replaced with a bright aqua/turquoise colour. I’m not sure if it is a blue or a green but whatever you call it – it looked stunning. To be honest I had my doubts when she first suggested it but voila! Its turned our great. Read more

Sarah-&-Josh-floral-wedding-invitation-2The brief

Sarah and Josh contacted me asking if I was able to design a simple invitation incorporating peonies for their wedding. They considered several options including a photograph but with pale pink as their preferred colour, this didn’t really work. Since they had relatively a lot of text and wanted to include additional information for their guest’s they needed a design that had plenty of space for the text but still evoked the garden wedding setting.
