‘Archiva’ design by Elum Designs

April 27, 2012

The ‘Archiva‘ wedding invitation suite from their Elum Couture Vol. 2 album celebrates lasting love with a save the date timeline and a style influenced by artifacts from a bygone era. Clean and simple typography mixed with vintage postage stamp artwork give a nod to years gone by. This classic design is ideal for the couple hosting a modern event infused with the unique character of antique touches and personal homemade accents. Letterpress printed in 3 soothing ink colors on double thick Tree Free Bamboo Ivory paper, this invitation is all about the little details, such as the delicate texture of the translucent Onion Skin enclosure that houses the invitation and emphasizes the momentous affair. Take a look below at the inspiration behind this timeless design, and check back again for more mood boards coming soon from their custom wedding invitation albums!
