as you probably all know by now, i am nuts for letterpress, primarily because the beauty is all in the clean lines and simplicity of the craft. but while many brides love the texture and aesthetic of letterpress, some still want something a little bit...more.
so lately i have been talking up decorative belly bands, as featured in our new frolic design. hardly a new concept (it's a classic, actually) belly bands add an extra pop of decor that is removable, enhancing an otherwise simple design. they are wildly popular right now.
we love the crisp patterns and sharp colors of this rehearsal dinner invite, which is playful even without the band. but there is something about that extra layer of formality that, along with the monogram, takes this design to another level of sophistication without making the card too busy. it's just fun.
we plan to do a larger series of these since we are now obsessed with the idea. and of course, we can add a band to any of our existing letterpress designs. we hope you like!
