Design brief

Brief Overview

We are a letterpress printing company looking to expand our offerings.

Brand Name

Alpha Press

Target Audience

Brides-to-be tend to be the decision maker in this process. As such, we're looking for some designs that are both feminine and trendy.


We're looking for a letterpress wedding invitation and response card design that is hip, trendy, and feminine. If it comes out of a clip art book, it's not for us. We own all of the Dover books and several other royalty-free books, and we are branching out to a more modern (yet still conservative) look.

Please use the sample text below:

Mr. and Mrs. John Smith

at the marriage of their daughter
Sarah Ann to Mr. Robert Adams
at six o'clock in the evening
Saturday, the thirteenth of May, Two Thousand and Nine

The Garden Club
Los Angeles, California

Dinner and Dancing to Follow
