Cool Things Wednesdays 76 - Unique Wedding Ideas & Decor

I only have one product for this week’s edition of Cool Things Wednesdays…..but it can stand alone.  The first of its kind Do-It-Yourself Letterpress Machine.  I ordered one and will post projects on the blog in case you are interested. 

Unique Wedding Invitations

 

I love these unique wedding invitations.  So clever.

Oslo Press

I know many blogs have featured Oslo Press. I couldn’t help ordering a sample set. Now had I seen these before they would have been one of my top contenders for wedding invites. The wood is lightweight and very beautiful. They even send you a sample of the wood color choices. I loved the combination of wood and letterpress. They looked great on my coffee table.

The Art of Letterpress

Letterpress printing is a type of printing in which the raised surface of the type is inked and then pressed against a smooth substance to obtain an image in reverse.

Letterpress is also very costly. Why? First, it is challenging to print multi-colors as most equipment prints only one color at a time. Second, this printing process is less precise than offset printing and takes a skilled printer to overcome printing issues.
Enough talk….Here are some of my favorite Letterpress:

The above two are from Sarah Drake in Chicago. I used her and her beautiful grass design for my wedding invites.

Hello Lucky also has beautiful invites. They even sell their letterpess at Costco for 25% off!

Good on Paper is another one of my favorites.
