Button Invitations


“I do,” said Erika the bride and Todd the groom.

“I do,” says PaperSpecs Gallery Gal, “love this wedding invitation!”

But what would you expect from a graphic designer whose getting hitched to a digital color specialist? The beginning of this lifetime collaboration was created with a true love of letterpress, a tenderly touchable textured paper and a Pantone match-made-in-heaven color of the year. They gathered together the pieces of their invitation with an elegant silky ribbon and then sealed the union with a kiss of golden wax.

“I had a fellow designer do a cool wedding website for her wedding. I still wanted to feel the piece. The woodgrain texture of the folded card, the deboss of the letterpress, the weight of the paper – you can’t get that nor have it as a keepsake from a website,” avows Erika the bride.

“I do! I do so agree!”

Button Invitations was featured as a Paper Inspiration.
