Collection Highlights: Josephine Suite

A modern invitation suite with beautiful letterpress details

The Josephine suite is a classic, elegant and minimal letterpress invitation design that can be styled to reflect different wedding styling. Featuring a fine line contemporary calligraphy script for the bride & groom's names, this design is a great option for couples wanting something elegant and minimal. Finished with a vintage botanical Eucalyptus illustration envelope liner, this design also looks beautiful with classic stripes or a plain coloured envelope liner.

The Design

A beautiful fine line flowing script style is the feature of this design suite. The bride & groom's names have been highlighted with a flowing and modern calligraphy style that dances on the baseline. This script style is carried through to other pieces in the suite and is used for feature text such as headings. The script is paired with a modern serif font in small capitals and italics adding variation within the design.

The flowing calligraphy style is carried through all of the pieces in the Josephine.

Colour Combinations

The Josephine suite is equally beautiful printed in soft shades as it is in dark shades - it really will work for any colour scheme. Some of our favourite ink shades for this design style include: Charcoal, Slate, Black, Navy and Forest. For a truly luxurious finish, consider adding foil for the bride & groom's names - we highly recommend this for an extra special look. Our foil shades include Gold, Silver, Champagne Gold, Rose Gold, Copper and Gunmetal.

Finishing Touches

The Josephine suite is best finished with extra details that compliment the simple design style. We've paired the sample design with a vintage botanical Eucalyptus illustration envelope liner in our Frost pale blue envelope shade. This adds colour and interest to the suite without overpowering the simple design style.

For a different look, other great envelope liner options include Classic stripes or a watercolour envelope liner depending on your colour scheme.

Other beautiful finishing options that complete this suite include name bands or paper wraps to keep the invitation pieces together. Here we recommend bringing in the small capitals font style for guest names and using a complimentary paper shade.

Printing on the envelope front and flap of guest names and addresses and return address is also recommended - the script style used for the bride & groom's names and feature text within the design has been carried through to the guest names and address on the envelope fronts.

The finishing options for the Josephine suite include name bands, envelope liners and delivery and return address printing.
