Letterpress

Who doesn't love some good letterpress? Planning my wedding left me knee-deep in paper lust, particularly the yummy goodness of thick paper pressed with beautiful inks. And when I say lust, I mean that there was no way we could have afforded it, unless of course I decided to forgo getting a wedding dress. And only invited 5 people. I might have been able to afford 5 letterpress invitations for the price of my wedding dress. Or I might be exaggerating.

But now you'll understand why I'm BOUNCING OFF THE WALLS excited about this contest I discovered from Claremont Road (Weddingbee love!). Bespoke Press is based in Australia, and their.stuff.is.beautiful. Not only do they have an amazing letterpress studio to create those coveted invitations, they started a project to feature up-and-coming illustrators. As such, they now have a line of 10 beautiful letterpress prints available in their shop. Swoon! Supporting fledgling artists and creating pretty things. I think I'm in love!


I'd love to give some of these prints as gifts...if even to myself! What are you waiting on? Go visit Bespoke! (and enter the contest to get all 10 Illustrator prints for FREE!)
