Tone-on-Tone: Bold and Subtle All In One?

We just can’t seem to get enough of our tone-on-tone letterpress effect. What we especially love about this printing technique is that you can really be bold and use intricate graphics, but since it is monochromatic, it is still very subtle and clean. Here are some samples from our designs

Above: We customized our Signature Collection Vintage Lace invitation with tone on tone printing, also referred to as a ‘blind impression.’

Hot off the press: Beautiful Olivia’s birth annoucement

We were thrilled to hear from our former wedding stationery client, Kendall and Nick Vitale, who just had a baby girl on the fourth of July. Of course, we incorporated red, white and blue and a whimsical, vintage take on the overall design of Olivia’s announcement. We incorporated a photograph of Olivia within the illustrative design on the front of the announcement and printed a photograph of her on the back as well. How can you not, when she is wearing such a cute headband! We had too much fun working on this…Congrats Kendall and Nick!
