Hand Lettered and Letterpressed Neon Invites by Ladyfingers Letterpress

Rhode Island-based Ladyfingers Letterpress often combines the two impressive skills of letterpress and hand-lettering. For their custom wedding suite, they created a hand-lettered and drawn cornucopia of letterpress techniques and inks. Since they design lots of custom wedding invites, Arley-Rose and Morgan wanted to break away from the norm for theirs.

They blew up their invitation to a small poster size and used neon red and glow-in-the dark ink in a three-color offset and one-color letterpress. Taking inspiration from the celebration's location—Seven Arrows Herb Farm, they used whimsical arrows as accents throughout the collection. Other techniques and details include custom die cuts, edge-painted cards, hand-lettered envelopes, jelly band wrap and shiny, gold envelopes. It makes for a cheerful, friendly and special design package.
