Spring wedding invitation suite

The present for my oldest niece's wedding is the wedding invitations suite, today packed and ready for express mail to Rome. I had the pleasure to design it and also print it on my new press. Quite a challenge to start printing something so precious for the first time on the table top, but I thought it will make the present more special if it was made to start to finish in one studio. And so here it is....
150 wedding invitations, letterpress printed in two colors, some of which assembled with the reception card, with cotton embroidery DMC thread. Printed on beautiful 600 gr/m Hahnemuhle paper, with round corners. Essential in the process, the corner rounder I bought used, with my press, at the Printing Museum sale, last year. A tool I always wanted to have.
And more appealing than all of this, is the villa from XVIII century, in the countryside outside Ravenna, where the wedding will take place...

They're beautiful, Angela! I love the color choices and the string and corner rounding finishes them perfectly!

Thank you!
I do feel better now about all of this work and for the invitations to be done and shipped! But I wasn't very happy about how uneven the printing was, compare to what i'm used to on the Vandercook press. I'm sure it is something I can improve and work more on for my next project. A lot still need to be done to learn this press!
