Introducing Custom Wedding Invitations!


Today I am sharing a block printed wedding invitation I worked on this winter for a summer wedding in New York. It was a custom project designed for the bride, who had an exact idea in her head of what she was looking for. I've been so excited to share this project since I worked on it in December!

This suite was designed for Catherine who wanted a William Morris-inspired invitation to match her teal-and-blue farmhouse wedding. Each invitation is block printed in two colors, and the RSVP card has a single color print.


Catherine provided me with a few pieces to give an idea of her theme, plus a William Morris print she was using as inspiration for the wedding. From there I worked on the design, carved the printing blocks, and printed each invitation by hand. I was so happy with the way they came out, and Catherine loved the finished invitations.







Since this project was such a success, I am now starting to take invitation orders! If you are interested in custom block printed invitations send me an email at hello@katharinewatson.com. I have just a few spaces open for the fall, so get in touch if you are interested in block printed invitations for your wedding! I will be doing both block printed and letterpress invitations, and each suite will be designed from scratch for the customer. All block printed invitations also come with the printing blocks which can be used again, or framed with the invitation. If you are getting married this year and are looking for unique invitations, send me an email!
