Featured Work :: Laser-Cut Booklet Invitation

The inspiration for this wedding invitation suite primarily came from the venue, The Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel, which is an iconic mountain castle in Banff, Alberta, Canada. The bride wanted to hint at the medieval characteristics of the hotel complimented by rich floral textures, which were to be included in the wedding décor. A medieval-style display font was used for the names and titles, while the rest of the typography was a classic serif and script. To incorporate the idea of medieval armor, as suggested by the bride, I created a distressed pattern from a photograph of a solid iron gate. It was very important for the piece to have substance and weight, so the invitation was sized to fit an A9 envelope. The bride wanted the invitation to feel luxurious, so combinations of unique metallic coloured papers were used with laser-cutting. To add a level of personalization to this suite, we not only created custom postage stamps, but also a wax seal. The wax seal was a deer head, which spoke to the outdoor nature of the Banff wedding location, as well as the groom's love of hunting.
