LOL Letterpress

More letterpress love. Today the love is going to LOL Letterpress because I found these invitations by Cindy Taylor on the Etsy. Cindy is a woman after my own heart. We both love paper, design, party planning, Amy Atlas, Bakerella and she does letterpress! She got her 1894 restored 8×12 Chandler & Price platen press {aka The Beast} from her husband on their first {paper} anniversary. How sweet is that?!

Please note that The Beast is the letterpress machine and not her husband.

Cindy has lots of lovely original invitation designs on her blog and has mixed the letterpress with fabric, textures and folds which is brilliant. This is the one that especially caught me.

Designed to mimic a Circus stage curtain, the invitation suite is draped in red velvet. Untie the gold tasselled cording to unveil their announcement printed with flame red and black on fluorescent white cotton paper. Stage left and tucked in a velvet pocket, guests will find an invitation to the couple’s rehearsal dinner.

I’m delighted to have met Cindy and you should head on over to have a lookie to see what she can come up with for you too!


Live, Love, Laugh and Dream!
