Local Designer Mary Rosamond Kunnath Wins Letterpress Award for Her Wedding Invitation
And for good reason, this invite has to be one of the most spectacular wedding invitations we've ever seen. There's no way in hell we'd entrust the delivery of these little inviting works of art to the USPS. Equal parts Galileo & Gatsby combined with impressively detailed typography and implemented thru beautiful letterpress & embossing techniques (by All Along Press) — it'd make more sense to frame this invitation than to throw it up on fridge under the Cardinals calendar magnet.
From the Toky blog, Mary had this to say:
"For the invitation, I designed a star map with the accurate location of the stars seen from our latitude and longitude on the night of the wedding. Then I created a custom fold so that when the invite was folded, you would see a single circle of stars, but when opened, you would see that two circles had come together to make one. Although the stars are positioned accurately, I created my own constellations to emphasize the making of new connections. I then used typography to give the piece a romantic, old-worldly feel. All Along Press printed the stars as a blind emboss — creating a beautiful texture and allowing the information to come to the forefront."
Congratulations Mary on winning the FPO Award while getting hitched at the same time.
Be sure to check out their wedding website which draws from the stylings of the invitation. Crazy.
Thanks for the submission!
