London-based boutique Letterpress studio Wolf & Ink has recently launched its 2018 collection of wedding invitations – and I simply had to share them with you on the blog today. I adore letterpress – the soft, textured papers have a wonderfully warm feeling to them and are always a dream to write on. Wolf & Ink are one of my favourite letterpress stationers – Julia’s designs are contemporary and unique; they’re full of character and timeless designer style. Have a look at our favourites here on the blog today (which Julia will introduce for you) – and then hop over to Wolf & Ink to see more. Don’t leave it too late to book!

The Wolf & Ink wedding invitations range is inspired by the many varied and intricate designs that can be created by a vintage one-of-a-kind letterpress machine.

For those new to the letterpress method of printing, its main advantage over modern digital (flat) printing is the range of indentations that can be created. A plate is made up with the design and text, which is then pressed down onto the cardstock, creating that distinctive style of indentation (known in the industry as a “deboss”).

Regular readers will know stationery is close to my heart! As a calligrapher I’ve worked with some of the very best from Cutture to Print for Love – and one of the loveliest things about writing the English Wedding Blog is discovering new stationery designers and online wedding invitation boutiques.

I’m also a huge supporter of independent and local businesses, so I’m delighted to bring you my top picks of wedding stationery designers to watch (and buy from!) in 2018. In no particular order….

Designs created on antique letterpress over 100 years old

Luxury letterpress studio Wolf & Ink launches its first ‘Ready To Go’ collection of wedding invitations, just in time for the 2015 wedding season. Wolf & Ink’s signature design style blends heritage-inspired imagery with contemporary prints, creating timeless, hand-crafted invitations.

As a design and print studio Wolf & Ink have used their knowledge of the intricacies of letterpress printing on an antique press to create six unique designs for the new collection. Each item is designed in-house and then lovingly hand-printed by letterpress onto thick, quality paper stock.
