Kent + Emily Invitation


Fashion is often the inspiration for all genres of design, and lace seems to be a perennial top influencer. With the playful possibilities of varied patterns and negative/positive space, it’s easy to understand why. Verb International takes lace and laser diecutting to extreme limits for this exquisite wedding invitation.

For the envelope, a honeycomb pattern reminiscent of bridal veil fabric was laser cut leaving only enough paper to glue it together. On the front of the envelope, an address rectangle bordered by a thin frame shows off the texture of the Antalis’ laid finish. The rectangle/frame, inspired from the wood paneling in the family’s main house, is repeated on the main invite via embossing. Discrete pockets with diecut slits provide room for ancillary cards.

As you open the accordion-folded, four-panel invite, laser diecutting (a combination of that honeycomb plus paisley-shaped swirls) is used again on the inner most panels. Sans-serif type is printed in a lilac shade. Contrasting this, the couple’s names are featured with a script font done with silver foil.
