Unique bespoke letterpress wedding invitations by Paper Elephant #letterpress #wedding #invitations


Custom grey and yellow inks on 100% cotton pearl white Crane Lettra stock


Five separate layers included an introductory front layer, the invitation layer, an information layer, RSVP layer and a backing layer. Each layer was hand glued together to create the final piece. Letterpress return addresses for both invitation and RSVP envelopes were also included.

We nicknamed this invitation the ‘Babushka’ and similar to the famous Russian doll, each layer peels away to reveal another smaller piece underneath. This was a wonderful collaboration between ourselves and our designer/friend/bride Rosa, to create something that was one of a kind and amazing, just like the couple it represented.  See more of their beautiful wedding day here.
