The Captain’s Wedding Invitations

How are we so lucky to work with so many talented clients? Once again, these beautiful wedding invitations were designed by the client and they did an amazing job. They wanted them printed on a brown chipboard to go with the old-world feel of the design. The results—as you can see—were marvelous. Chipboard is a much denser paper than the Crane Lettra that is our standard, so the impression was not as deep as usual, although we added as much packing as we could whilst being careful to preserve the fidelity of the photopolymer plate. These invites are often favorites of people who come in looking for wedding invitations because of the unique paper, character-filled typeface (really, no pun intended), and strong imagery.

The groom, Arthur, has done everything from farming in Ireland to fixing up a hundred-year-old wooden sailboat named the Atlantis to sail the worlds’ oceans—a true modern day adventurer. We are glad that he was able to find us in his travels so we were able to print these beautiful wedding invitations! You can see more about our clients adventures and how he met his wife on his blog, the CAPTAIN’S LOG.

    You do a great job of translating Arthur & Claire’s style here! Also, it was fun to see UK stamps.
