Oslo Press http://www.oslopress.com specializes in unique wedding invitations of wood veneer or paper. Their wood invitations are laser engraved with an original design, while the coordinating elements to the invitation suite re-created using paper and letterpress.
The wood invitation sets combine the use of rich wood veneer and elegant paper, making them some of the most unique and creative wedding invitations around. Each individual invitation is made of wood veneer that has been engraved with a design. The design is enhanced by the grain of the wood and each invite will be truly unique due to the natural variations found in the wood grain. The impression created by letterpress is enhanced by using soft paper, such as their house paper made from recovered cotton fibers, and provides a tactile print with a well defined three-dimensional look. Just as each piece of wood will be unique, so too will each paper item that comes off the press – leaving you with an invitation suite that is full of character, texture, and timeless beauty.
For the truly unique invitation, here is a wedding invitation that turns into a record. Folded just so, this card turns into a manually operated paper record player that plays a song recorded by the future bride and groom. Designer Kelli Anderson at http://kellianderson.com/blog/2011/04/a-paper-record-player/ wanted to create something original for the wedding of her friends Karen Sandler and Mike Tarantino.
