I recently had the pleasure of visiting the studios of Wolf & Ink - a fab boutique letterpress stationery design company based in West London.
When I think of letterpress and weddings, I generally picture very traditional wedding invitations - wow, have I been wrong! What really impressed me, and what I absolutely love about Wolf & Ink and what they do, is that they combine truly modern wedding stationery design with the traditional process of letterpress.
It has to be said, the process of letterpress is an almost forgotten, yet pretty epic, one! Each and every one of your wedding invites is produced one-by-one by hand...only one colour can be printed at a time so just imagine how long it would take if you wanted a whole bunch of colours on your wedding stationery! And the colours - well, they're all hand-mixed - a real labour of love if ever there was one!
"Designed for you" where you can work with the lovely Julia to create a design unique to you for your wedding. This services takes around six weeks once you've approved the artwork.
"Ready to go" where you can choose from a selection of designs and mix and matching to your heart's desire from the different designs available. Your choices are what makes your wedding stationery unique - the designs, the pressure of the print, the type of paper, the thickness of the paper. This service takes around three weeks.
I love the idea of using this centuries old custom and making it something new and current.
