earthquakes, hurricanes and tornadoes...oh my! with this incredible weather on the east coast we thought it was the perfect week to post amy + justin's farmer's almanac-inspired save the date and wedding invitation package. amy asked for a design that resembled the look of an old almanac. she loved the idea of using a mix of fonts and etched embellishments.
they chose a 4x6 self-mailing postcard for the save the date. it was a four-color piece and just gave a hint of what was to come for the invitation package.
the invitation and reply card were letterpressed with a deep navy ink on cranes lettra ultra thick ecru stock. the 19th century etched artwork is obviously perfect for the letterpress process! amy tied in the lavender from the save the dates with a simple raffia bow and custom address stamp.
we wish them the best as they wed on 9.10.11 at the york harbor reading room in maine.
