Wedding Stationery from Lucky Penny Paperie

Today, we have a special vendor feature that creates letterpress invitations!

If you are unfamiliar with the process, letterpress is an antique printing method that uses images and text on a raised surface that is dipped in ink and pressed against the paper. It produces a matte ink design or lettering that is sharply impressed rather than raised. You can be sure that this is a longer process than the digital printing, but the results are classy. They leave a lovely print on textured paper that is often simple and elegant designs with a distinct style.

Lucky Penny Paperie specializes in creating dreamy, romantic and eclectic Wedding Correspondence for the Non-traditional bride.  Jessica’s charming and original letterpress work is done through the use of a vintage Vandercook SP 15 letterpress! Amazing! We hope you enjoy. 

How did you get started on wedding invitations?

I worked in television/motion graphics for 6 years out of college, and really started to miss print design. I've always loved gorgeous paper and printmaking, so I decided to go back to my roots and decided wedding invitations were right up my alley. I love working with brides and couples, because they are always so happy and excited!

What are your favorite materials?

I love the look and feel of the letterpress printing method, and I just recently started incorporating watercolor patterns into my designs.

What’s the craziest invitation you’ve been asked to design?

I've designed quite a few wedding invitations for international couples. Not that they are that crazy-I just find it very interesting how etiquette and traditions are different in every country. 

Ampersand or And?

Ampersand!

What do you love most about your work?

This is a hard question. I love everything about it. But if I had to pick one thing, it would be when all of the production is completed and I have the final product in my hands. That feeling of success and completion- and knowing that they will make an engaged couple very happy.

What do you recommend to a bride looking for wedding invitations?

Look for invitations that express your life as a couple and mirror the feel of your wedding. Your invitations are the first thing that will introduce your guests to what your wedding (and you as a couple) is like, so they are very important!
