Yippee Skippy - we're giving away four sets of LETTERPRESSED Save-the-Dates! We're just so excited about our new designs that we're having a contest to make four lucky brides just as giddy as we are!

Want to win?  It's simple... Just email contest (at) hautepapier (dot) com with the following information:

  • Which style you'd like to win
  • Your wedding date
  • Desired ink colors
  • One or two sentences on why you :)


Contest closes Monday, March 12th at noon.  We will announce the winners on Tuesday, March 13th.  Winners will each receive 100 letterpressed save-the-dates on our stock paper (ivory or white will be available) with letterpressed return address.  Computer calligraphy for the addressing on the envelopes will be available for a small fee if the winners so choose.  Keep reading for more detailed pictures of each design...

Black & White Beauty

We've been just bursting at the seams to share this one with you, but had to wait since it is featured in this month's Brides! It was so much fun to create this suite for Cate & Tim - they just asked for sophisticated, classic contemporary and then let us take it away!  The invites are engraved in white on the black paper for the front and the back is a reverse, with white paper and their monogram engraved in black.  We love the custom envelope liners that incorporate the starburst design from their monogram.  Stay tuned for pictures of the creative details put together for their reception by EVOKE!
