Veer Umbrella Type Collection

I’m hopelessly addicted to fonts, so anytime I visit a site that sells fonts I know how it’s going to go. I initially intend on spending a few minutes checking out new and interesting fonts, and I end up looking around for hours with a list of 100 new fonts added to my wishlist. So, it’s no surprise that this is exactly what happened when I visited Veer’s Type section the other day.

I’m a complete fangirl when it comes to script, calligraphy, and handwriting fonts, and Veer’s Umbrella Type collection has me in full on drool mode. The Umbrella collection is a group of typefaces hand picked by Veer to give larger exposure to fonts created by small foundries and independent designers. I couldn’t just choose two or three to feature, so here’s a whole bunch that would be perfect for wedding and other invitations, graphic design projects, and general font collecting:

Soolip Custom Wedding Invitations

Soolip Margot Custom Wedding Invitations
Soolip India Custom Wedding Invitations
Soolip Parsons Custom Wedding Invitations
Soolip Jasmine Custom Wedding Invitations

Soolip’s custom wedding invitations are a feast for the eyes. The exotic papers, perfect presentation, exquisite detail, and lovely touches like tea staining (Parsons Wedding Invitation) are artful inspirations. Pictured above, from top to bottom, are selections from the custom wedding ensembles: Margot, India, Parsons, and Jasmine.

Though each of these designs is presented as a wedding invitation, Soolip can customize them to create invitations for any other type of event or special occasion.

Save the Date Cards at Crane & Co.

Crane & Co. Save the Date Cards

More wedding goodies at Crane & Co. This time it’s save the date cards. I love the deep, rich colored backgrounds on the Engraved Espresso (top left) and Engraved Navy Blue (top right) save the date cards. Ultra sophisticated, and the deep colored paper makes such an impact.

The little details can make a big difference. I adore the little “belly band” and tag on the Engraved Taupe save the date cards (bottom left). Great beachy or summery color scheme, too. And the modern flower and vase illustration is standout on the Floral Vase personalized save the date cards (bottom right).

Kate Spade Wedding Invitations

Kate Spade Engraved Garden Bough Wedding Invitations

Wow, I’m absolutely taken with the Engraved Bough wedding ensemble by Kate Spade. Black and yellow as a wedding color scheme — if I hadn’t have seen these I wouldn’t have realized how beautiful this could be.

Kate Spade Brush Stroke Floral Wedding Invitations

I’m also digging the more casual Brushstroke Floral wedding invites. Love the whimsical, stylized florals and the bright pink on white. Sophisticated, yet laid back at the same time.

Both ensembles, as well as other styles from Kate Spade, are available at Fine Stationery and Crane & Co.
