There are some notable parts of America that have taken a liking to our hybrid wedding invitations. One of them happens to be the San Francisco Bay Area. We’ve had quite a few customers from that NorCal hot spot, including Catrina and her fiancé (now husband!) Michael. For their wedding invitations they chose the ever popular handbill invitation design. A fun, roaring 20s style invitation that never fails to impress with with its sophistication and charm.

You’ve seen them letterpressed, and you’ve read who they were letterpressed for, and now we’ve brought that over indulgent primate to the Mightyvites invitation gallery! This is our first addition to the gallery in a long time simply because we’ve been crazy busy with other stuff. We’re happy to make it available though because the drunken monkey is one of our favorite invitation designs.
This 5″x7″ invitation has only ever been printed by letterpress but we are making it available for digital print. The gallery version shows the design in colors mocha and sapphire but customers can customize their version with any color on our palette. The letterpress version printed for customers Bas & Sarah was on cream paper, but the design would look great on white or pearl.

As an extra special supplement to our letterpress wedding invitations post from last week we have this video of the drunken monkeys being made. Stephanie put this video together of her two color design being printed on a Heidelberg cylinder letterpress. In this video the last of the two colors, gold, is being printed for customers Sarah and Bas’ wedding invitations. A lot of work goes into letterpress printing, and this video will give you a taste of it. Enjoy!

Weddings are fun. They are a sacred and joyful occassion followed by a big party. We all know that everyone looks forward to the reception because of the food, drinks, and dancing so why not put fun at the forefront of the wedding and include something different on your wedding invitations? Something like…a drunken monkey!! That must have been what customers Sarah and Bas were thinking when they contacted us about Steph’s drunken monkey coaster design and said they wanted that on their letterpress wedding invitations.

Ah, the sea. It’s expansive, somewhat uncharted, and full of the unknown. Yet at the same time it’s constant and has a dependable ebb and flow. In that sense the sea is a lot like marriage, so it makes perfect sense to put an image of the ocean on wedding invitations. Perhaps that is what Los Angeles, California customers Stephen and Tamie were thinking when they invited guests to their wedding day with Mightyvites in the rolling waves design.
