WNY Wedding Trends : Letterpress | Buffalo Indie Weddings

Guest blog post presented by Ilana from Sugar and Type, a design studio with a serious passion for paper!

Hello Buffalo! I’m so excited to be a member of Buffalo Indie Weddings, rep'ping your sister city, Rochester!
I started my business after getting my Bachelors of Fine Art from RIT, and it’s been an incredible journey. I’ve had the opportunity to work with some amazing clients, and it’s been so fun to share my own journey planning my own wedding!

I knew when I got engaged that I'd be calling Amy of greengirlpress to help me print my invitations. I LOVE letterpress, and even have one of my own, but it's pretty tiny, and I definitely needed Amy's expertise.

Gold and blush is incredible, but mixed with this slate, it's taken to a whole new level! Add calligraphy and letterpress to the mix, and you're bound to leave a lasting first impression on your guests. When you opt for letterpress, you get amazing tangible products, and a unique "gold" that works with so many styles.

Kraft paper is the bomb. I love how Amy mixes it with so many color combinations, and lets each couples shine through!

Adding a map to your invitation suite might be my favorite thing right now, along with unique wording. Our ceremony was inside a park, and pretty difficult to navigate - so we sent everyone invited a fun map to help them find our location. I love how Amy's couple titled this "Odds & Ends". The wording really sets the tone for your wedding, and I can tell this one came with a lot of heart. This invite actually folds up - so all of the information is together, and hopefully doesn't get lost in the ever growing pile of "incoming mail" we all pretend we don't have.

I love how this couple took their theme onto their place cards! I can tell they clearly are foodies, and if only I could be a guest to try some of those delicious menu items! If you're thinking about letterpress, be sure to reach out to Amy, and you'll definitely leave a first "impression"! (I promise, that joke will never get old to me!)
