Private wedding for family and friends.
We envisioned an invitation incorporating Art Deco patterns while blending letterpress and laser-cut techniques. This invitation piece would help set the tone and style of the decoration that would be revealed at the event.
By using a gate-fold style wrap around the invitation we maximized the amount of surface area to showcase the laser-cut. The outside of the invitation is all white to increase the drama upon opening and revealing the invitation. The mounted emblem on the cover helps draw the viewers attention to the doors. Inside, the invitation is mounted over an ornate and detailed Art Deco pattern. The soft blush paper helps provide a pop of color without being too intense, and the die-cut mounted invitation remains simple in style, not to compete with the details of the laser-cut pattern.
PRODUCTION LESSONSThis piece faced a few production obstacles. Our biggest feat was learning how to combine the two separate sheets of laser-cut artwork together in an elegant and durable manner. To ensure that the wrap would close properly, we coordinated the different paper weights to allow for enough clearance around the mounted invitation after scoring.
My selection was based on the perfect marriage of duplexed paper and exquisite tip-on which was finely letterpressed and surrounded with some of the most impressive, intricate, and delicate laser-cutting effects. All nicely sealed with an exquisite copper foiled seal. Quite simply a great execution of multiple craftsmanships. — Jeff Hernandez
By far the most elaborate laser-cutting I have ever seen. I shudder to think of someone tearing the intricate pattern as they remove the sticker. — Louise Fili
