In our opinion, wedding invitations and Save the Dates are one of the most fun things to check off your list when you start to plan your big day…because they set the tone for everything! If you’ve already got a theme or mood in mind, they can begin to convey those light and airy vibe or an elegant and modern feeling, you know? Today, we’re THRILLED to introduce you to August and Osceola: a boutique wedding invitation suite designer based in the US!
Shanleigh, the owner + designer, creates all suites by hand in her Massachusetts studio. Trained as a graphic designer, Shanleigh now does it all: digital flat printing, foil stamping, and letterpress! Add-ons are also available, such as envelope address printing, custom illustrations, deckle edges, and invitation suite assembly. Essentially, A+O will make everything GORGEOUS, while checking off your To-Do list for you. Below you’ll find some of her latest designs (that we’re seriously crushing on…the lettering, the clean illustrations!). If by chance you have a different vision in your head—August and Osceola can create a custom suite just for you!
P.S. You’ll find details for one SWEET suite giveaway as you scroll (plus a discount code)! One lucky winner will receive flat printed wedding invitations and RSVPs from one of the collections (over a $500.00 value!).
Not sure what some of the lingo is we used earlier? Here’s the inside scoop:
Flat printing (digital) is the most budget-friendly printing option—your design will be digitally printed onto the paper, leaving a smooth and flat image.
Letterpress printing is a type of relief printing—a custom plate of your design is inked up and pressed into the paper, leaving a beautiful impression of your design that you can feel.
Foil stamping is similar to letterpress printing—but instead of ink, foil is used to print your design, leaving a sort of metallic and luxe finish.
Dig minimalist designs? Roam, with its clean and classic typography, may be for you!
For those looking to make a statement, do it with Oath’s striking and bold typography.
And then there was the Estate Collection and all its darling details. We picture this one fitting with a couple who adores fine art and really wants to let the beauty of the venue shine.
