When it came to the invitation suite, James and Zhenya went for a fresh color palette of blue, green and a hint of gold. The couple wanted a suite that would encompass all of the events in addition to their big day. To share all of this information, we designed and screen printed an accordion gate fold piece. This provides a way to encase the invitation, reply card and reply envelope. Within the gate fold, illustrations of the event locations are laid out in a storyline configuration. The storyline is flanked by a layered floral design that becomes a mirrored image of itself when the accordion is folded closed. The invitation itself was letterpressed along with the reply card to add a touch of glamor to the suite. As a finishing touch, the entire suite was tied with twine and we calligraphed the envelopes in a navy ink.
For the day of pieces, we screen printed and calligraphed seed packets for their escort cards. Custom stationery rounds out the suite with a focus on their monogram and the wee little goat that they fell in love with on the accordion.
