Top Stitched Wedding Booklet

Custom wedding projects are a specialty for our studio. When a marriage has multiple events and large amounts of information – a booklet structure just makes sense. We worked with stationery designer Kavita Ahuja on this letterpress printed booklet for her brothers wedding. (Also, her and her fiancee also have a very cool website selling boutique handmade perfumes called D.S. & Durga.)

The booklet is a french folded structure with a cover that wraps the spine to hide the raw page edges. The french folding allows a nice letterpress impression on each page while hiding any show through of impression on the interior since the backs are hidden. Everything is printed on Pearl White Crane Lettra 80lbT with navy and gold ink. The binding edge is stitched from the top with a navy thread. The booklet fits into an existing A7 square flap envelope. Note on that the envelope can print both the face and the flap by opening them before printing.

    • That is so stunning.
      The process is so suited to the design.
      Love the colours + lush feel.

    • what beautiful stitching! :)

    • Nice and neat stitching.
      Did you use a sewing machine to do the binding?

    • Yes, all invites were scored, then collated and clipped together and stitched on an industrial sewing machine.

    • I liked the serenity of the design and its exclusiveness. The motifs are pretty engrossing and the finished card looks very beautiful indeed. The use of navy ink was a masterstroke!

    • I really like the inner twined stylish savoriness treat this is to look at. Thank you for publishing 100% awesome content.

    • This wedding booklet has got me dusting off my old trusty sewing machine. What a beautiful book. I can only imagine how magnificent the wedding must have been.

    • I called Crane and they said they didn’t make Lettra in 80lb. Did the rep not know what they were talking about, or is that something other than Lettra?

    • This is 80lbT – the T is for Text weight. All the Lettra envelopes are made from it too. There is no cover weight at 80lbC but there should be. I do wish Crane would get on the ball and expand the Lettra product line. I’d love to see something in the 130-160C range. An 80lb sheet would be great as a DTC (Double Thick Cover) sheet. But don’t get me started about how much I love dealing with Cranes ever shifting products. :(

    • It does make one uneasy about rolling out a product line when you know stock availability can change on the whim of someone in accounting.
