Bold Brush

Letterpress and gold foil wedding invitation suite featuring oversized modern brush lettering / calligraphy in gold foil and blush ink, and gray sans serif type. Pink envelope. Arranged in a flat lay with pink sunglasses.

Bold Brush was the very first wedding invitation we decided to include in our new collection of customizeable letterpress invitations, Dependable Weddings. It’s easy see why! With its bold, brush lettered names in gold foil, and slight, minimal letterpress text, it’s a modern classic.

We call this invitation suite “Bold Brush” because the brush-lettering puts what’s important front and center: the couple. The couple’s names occupy more than half the page, and their excitement to wed is palpable. The paper is thick and soft, and accepts the impression from the letterpress beautifully.

customization options

The original version of this wedding invitation features gold foil, gray letterpress, and blush / rose letterpress on the details and thank you cards. However, for a different look the gold foil can be substituted for ink, or even for blind deboss. Using the same blush ink that appears on the Thank You and Details cards will tie the suite together, but will reduce contrast and therefore reduce a certain level of visual interest. Using blind deboss instead will create a much more subtle, but also fresh and modern look.

Bold Brush is suitable for a wide variety of weddings. While perhaps a bit too casual for a black-tie affair, it works well for a cocktail-attire urban wedding, a garden wedding, or a destination / getaway wedding. It’s a festive design that communicates joy. However, it is also clean and minimal overall, not overly playful or irreverent.
