Evan and Lynn’s watercolor letterpress wedding design

Evan and Lynn knew two things they wanted when it came to their wedding stationery. They loved letterpress and they wanted to include the beautiful many colors of wildflowers that would be at the wedding. Now, normally lots of colors and letterpress are not something that go hand in hand. But as you may know, we like to get creative here at The Goodness when faced with a challenge. We were able to create a design that was whimsical, fun and natural, while incorporating bright colors by creative use of materials. Watercolor Letterpress Wedding Invitations The Goodness 001The first thing we designed was the save the date. I’m excited to share this one because you get to see a little of the creation process too! We really wanted to incorporate the colorful wildflowers of the wedding with a letterpress postcard. Our design was letterpressed text and flowers with hand painted  watercolor flowers. We painted each stem and flower by hand to create something that was one of a kind for each guest.Evan Lynn STD 2We mixed our own colors to get the perfect hues.Evan Lynn STD 6aThe colors were inspired by California wildflowers.Evan Lynn STD 7On the back, we used custom rubber stamps to include the wedding information and return address on the back.

The end result was modern, natural, and not-too-formal.Watercolor Letterpress Wedding Invitations The Goodness 002We designed custom mailing labels on kraft envelopes for a natural feel.Watercolor Letterpress Wedding Invitations The Goodness 003Pretty envelope liners to match! Again, including color here was essential, and our solution was a beautiful patterned fabric belly band. Watercolor Letterpress Wedding Invitations The Goodness 008The print was rather large, which meant each invitation was unique, just like the save the dates!Watercolor Letterpress Wedding Invitations The Goodness 009aLOVE the texture of letterpress!
