romantic wedding invitations and
calligraphy for the fine art couple
WELCOME TO INK & PRESS CO.
In our digital age, with immediate access to everything, there is an ever-present need for us to slow down, connect, and create.
Slow strokes of calligraphy against the rough grain of handmade paper, soft drips of wax pressed into an elegant crest seal, the permanence of a letterpress-debossed indent... all of these old-world processes push us to slow down, reflect, and appreciate the beauty of fine art creation.
Using only the finest and most luxurious materials, we pride ourselves in our process and the products we use. This is why we use antique letterpress machines, paper sourced from Italian mills that have been owned by the same family for generations, and silk ribbons hand-dyed and hand-torn. These small details allow us to curate invitations that evoke an old-world sense of beauty that is unparalleled.
Throughout this intentional, deeply curated process, we are able to design a paper suite your guests are excited to receive. Tucked between the Anthropologie catalogs and bills, there is a carefully addressed calligraphy envelope containing a handmade invitation suite. This gift of paper will set the tone for your event and allow your guests to slow down and embrace the beauty of the tangible.
A piece as beautiful and intentionally curated as this becomes an heirloom. We aren't creating just another piece of mail destined for the wastebasket - we have designed a piece of art that documents your most important day.
why we do what we do
From handmade paper, letterpress, to gold foiling, Ink and Press Co. offers custom invitation suites for the fine art bride. Each custom invitation suite is unique to the bride, taking into consideration the overall aesthetic of the couple's wedding.
Shop the collection of nine semi-custom suites, each inspired by one of Mikyla's favorite artists. Semi-custom suites are designed for couples who desire an artisan touch at a more affordable investment than a completely custom design.
Small details can have a big impact, which is why Mikyla offers additional day-of detail designs. From menu cards, ceremony programs to name cards, Mikyla can create any day of detail paper goods to add that finishing touch to your wedding.
We’ve teamed up with Shasta of Shasta Bell Calligraphy for a multi-part series on how to consistently style and shoot beautiful flatlays. As both wedding stationers and film photographers, we’ve seen (and tried) it all. We’re here to help you cultivate your own styling skills by walking you through how we transformed our own lackluster, blown-out, upsetting flatlays into publication worthy pieces. Coming soon in 2020.
