Something Different: Red, Gold and Shiny Foil Invitations


Laser-Cut Red for a Double Wedding

We may be known for more organic, wabi-sabi sorts of wedding invitations, but once and a while we get to create custom invitations that are very different from our “signature style” (whatever that is…but anyway).

At the other end of the spectrum from natural tones and materials is bright, shiny invitations like the ones here, which we did for a few different clients. These invitations are bold and glittery and they tell the recipient this wedding is going to be all-out fancy. Which they were… In fact, the one in red was for a Jewish-Hindu double wedding lasting five days! Two sets of wedding invitations, two sets of day of paper (programs, escort cards, menus, etc.) in two different but matching styles: red with laser cut monogram and gold foil for the Hindu wedding, and white with gold foil for the Jewish wedding. Both invitations also have gold twine tie. We are really proud of these wedding invitations, they were a lot of work but came out great.


We put together this gold foiled wedding invitation for a client (and now good friend). There are multiple pieces here, including a gold foil map and itinerary booklet with gold twine tie. Not for everyone, perhaps, but for her it was perfect.

Mariska Hartigay’s Walk of Fame Star Party Invitation

Mariska has given us permission to blog about a special invitation we did for her back in November, so here we go (Actually she gave us permission a long time ago, but we’ve taken a looong time to get around to blogging).

On November 8, 2013, Mariska Hartigay, star of Law & Order: SVU, received her star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame, right next to her late mother, Jane Mansfield.

Mariska, a long-time client of Tiny Pine Press who we know through our work with the Joyful Heart Foundation, asked us to create an invitation for the after-party. We came up with a design that is, like Mariska, just a little girly and definitely a show-stopper. The design obviously evokes the Walk of Fame stars… Because Mariska loves rhinestones we also made sure to include one of those, too. Plus some pink edge painting and a lovely pink-lined envelope.
