We had a blast designing a wedding invitation and thank you note for a couple that have been great friends of ours for years. They are both ferry captains on a very small and charming ferry in Martha's Vineyard. They decided to have their ceremony on the docked ferry and were interested in incorporating the ferry into the overall design on the invitations.
We went with an overall nautical theme, printing in a hand mixed dark ocean blue on Cranes 110lb paper. The invitation was designed as a trifold. The long rectangle invite featured a hand engraved ferry image on the top, along with the wedding information and nautical flags below.
The bottom section of the invitation doubled as the RSVP card. It was perforated, so the guests could simply tear the bottom square off and pop it in the mail as a postcard and eliminate the need for another envelope. The backs of this RSVP section were printed with the return address and, keeping with the theme, a nautical square knot design.
