Gold Foil + Letterpress: Adam and Kendall's Colony Club Wedding
Gold foil. Letterpress. A blind emboss. And four layers of cardstock. Adam and Kendall were married at Saints Peter and Paul Jesuit Church, the oldest in all of Detroit, with a reception following at the iconic Colony Club. Kendall wanted to capture the glamour of the Colony Club in an invitation suite that would really bring a wow factor for her guests. To accomplish it we used a traditional, timeless design and elevated it with a combination of premium printing processes (3 on the invitation alone!) on cotton letterpress stock, using soft pink, chocolate brown, and pale gold cardstocks as stacked backing layers. Each corresponding card featured the same cotton stock printed with letterpress and gold foil, and the pale gold envelopes were perfectly offset with gold knot envelope liners. The whole package was tied up with personalized vellum tags and metallic raffia.
