Classic 50th Anniversary Invitation Cards from Checkerboard Unveiled in Gold & Ivory by Hyegraph San Francisco
Our client came in very excited to throw a 50th Wedding Anniversary Party for her parents. She looked all over the internet and felt most comfortable coming in to see us so we could design these special cards together. Here is the design we came up with together: A classic gold and ivory or ecru invitation with the couple’s photo inserted. The top of the card has the couple’s marriage dates printed in black ink as well as the body of the invitation text also in black. The design elements as well as the card backing are in gold. All the papers and design tools are from on one of our favorite invitation companies: Checkerboard.
The result is a sophisticated, graceful, classic, custom design with combination wording. This cheerful couple are sure to have been joyous on their celebration day enjoying their milestone with those closest to them.
Please let us know how we can help you create your next custom invitation design. Please, call, email or stop by at Hyegraph Embarcadero San Francisco.

Bella Wedding Invitation by Arabella Design from K Paper at Hyegraph
Our bridal couple, Corinne & Douglas, chose this luxurious Bella gold and ivory invitation for their upcoming August Wedding in Berkeley, California. The Bella line is Arabella’s more affordable luxury line from K Paper. Our couple chose the Moroccan pattern for the invitation design as well as for the back of the card wallpaper. The edge of the invite is scalloped for an added sense of chickness. The invitation itself is matte ivory with metallic gold printing.
Our couple’s reception and ceremony are in the same place, therefore, they did not need to have an additional reception card, instead they added the phrase, “…Reception immediately following ceremony…” to the bottom of the main invitation. Corrine & Douglas also added their wedding website to the main invite, thereby referring guests for hotel, dining and other wedding related details.
The invitation envelope is in matching ivory and metallic gold moroccon pattern printed on the envelope edge and design added to the return address on the flap. The envelope lining is in a burnt orange paper lining. The couple’s return address is printed on the envelope flap in gold metallic ink.
Jacques also addressed the wedding envelopes with Hyegraph Digital Calligraphy in the couple’s favorite font style.
This invitation is an example of luxury, high quality and sophistication meeting to create a unique fresh wedding invite! Congratulations Corinne & Douglas!

San Francisco Spinsters “Marrakech” Annual Ball Invitations in Ikat Damask Design by Hyegraph
Marrakech is one of the three major cities “…in the northwest African nation of Morocco.” (Wikipedia) It lies in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains, a few hours from the Sahara Dessert. “Marrakech” in Amazigh means “Land of God”. In this city that’s named after God, it’s streets are covered in colorful “spice markets”, traditional hand-woven “carpets”, ancient mosaic tiles, walls of textiles and history. The “Ikat Damask” design is inspired by Moroccan culture and art and adorns the champagne colored shimmer stationery of our Carlson-Craft Exclusive Collection for our client, San Francisco Spinsters “Marrakech” inspired Ball Invitation.
The above inspirations for a Moroccan theme come from the streets of Morocco, the colorful carpets in the bottom left hand corner, the Moroccan blue bead curtain in the upper left hand corner, the gold & purple luxe Moroccan fabric in the upper right hand corner, Hillary Clinton & Princess Lalla Meryem of Morocco wearing the Moroccan Caftan in gold and ivory. In the center is our Ikat Damask Invitation by Carlson Craft Exclusive Collection in champagne shimmer, latte, mocha and navy inks with the Spinsters’ logo imprinted on the top of the invite.
Jacques also worked on the SF Spinsters’ Envelope Addressing for their upcoming Annual Ball taking place at The Fairmont San Francisco.
