A hand crafted and letterpress printed wedding invitation for ourselves: an American Bride and her Australian groom. We wanted to give equal emphasis to both the Australian and American receptions and invite everyone from both countries to the wedding ceremony.
A wren (the American bride’s middle name) and a wombat (the quintessential Australian counterpoint) are separate on the sleeve containing the ceremony information. Depending on where you are from, sliding out the card reveals the relevant reception information and no matter which side you choose, they both unite the wren and wombat.
The entire suite consisted of thank you cards and bunting printed with wood type, custom printed pencils, and an engagement invitation letterpress printed with metal type and rubber stamped.
