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

Real Wedding – Maria and Kavi

Last year, we had the opportunity to work with Maria and Kavi- an amazing, open to fresh ideas and oh-so-creative couple. Their wedding was the perfect fusion of their Lebanese and Indian cultures and traditions. I worked with the talented Laura Weatherly, from Engaging Affairs and Maria and Kavi in designing their wedding invitations and accessories. The motifs that were introduced in their wedding stationery were beautifully incorporated into their wedding decor. The image below shows how their ornate, rich motif that we designed for their wedding invite is an integral part of their decor.

Get inspired!

Last spring we had the wonderful opportunity to work with Sophia and Matt Ko, on their modern-asian wedding in the Mandarin Oriental, DC. Not only did we have a extraordinary color palette to be inspired by, but we were thrilled to work with such a creative couple. We designed their save-the-dates, invitation suite, escort cards, table cards and programs! The best part was that Sophia and Matt worked closely with all their vendors to incorporate their custom stationery graphics into their event decor. This is what makes what we do so special for us and our brides and grooms! Have a look!

Real Wedding – Amanda and Peter

Amanda and Peter were married in Harbour Island, Bahamas. Their wedding theme was inspired by beautiful batik and paisley prints. The save the dates and invitations captured the feel of the beach, with the sand-textured papers and light and dark blue inks on luxurious, 100% cotton letterpress papers. We loved that this breezy, relaxed, beach-like essence was captured without showing the obvious – palm trees, shells etc.
