Bespoke Illustration

Bespoke Illustration


A truly unique experience of opening and receiving an invitation, this is a romantic, personal and entirely custom design. In this suite, we will create a bespoke illustration of the wedding venue along with a small drawing to use on the reply card. The illustration can be of any single building, structure or landmark related to the wedding. You can see several varieties in the sample photos here. And we’re happy to chat about your options and ideas before making your decision.

It’s an elegant, vertical layout and typically letterpress-printed on very fine paper, made by the historic Arturo line with a rich texture and deckled (softly torn) edges. You have a variety of options, however, for the papers and printing methods you’d like for the finished suite.

With whatever wording you provide, we will hand-write every word and place the artwork in this design layout. You’ll then have a chance to review and revise as needed.

Samples are the best way for you to get a true feel for Paperfinger custom wedding invitations before placing your order with us. Samples are complimentary and ship to you at the cost of priority shipping only!
