An Oversized Wedding Invitation

Local Minneapolis designers Ned Wright and Laura Belle were married a couple months back in a small backyard ceremony. Both being designers, it makes sense that they started their journey as man and wife by collaboratively designing the invitations for their big day.

Comprised of a main invitation card and an additional information card, this wedding suite combines unusual materials and several print processes. The main invitation is an oversized card (7.5″ x 10.5″) of 145 lb French Packing Board we custom duplexed to 100 lb Wausau Royal Complements Eclipse black cover stock. Studio On Fire letterpress printed the text on one side and then sent the piece off for foiling (white and black) on both sides.

The information card was also oversized (10.5″ x 15″) printed on one of our house stocks, Crane Lettra Pearl White 110C. Black ink is used on both sides, with an additional tonal ink used to create visual texture on the outside of the card. Once the card had completed printing it received several score and perforation lines, allowing the RSVP to be separated and returned.

As a special bonus, the couple had a great video made of their wedding weekend that they agreed to share.

  • awsome. long time i haven’t seen something like this. makes me like wedding invitation again :)

    thx for the sharing.

    what did you print first on the blind LN (seems to be blind printed) and the black &?


  • I have to ask.
    Is this Ned from space150? I toured their space with a group of MSUM graphic design kids this fall and noticed a countdown to the “Nedding”
    Great invites!

  • Ned 150 indeed.

    Nedding – that is funny. Kind of adds to the Space 150 obsession of day-counting. It is a remarkable part of their culture – a completely new identity every 150 days.
