Checkerboard Invitations, place cards and programs by Hyegraph: An example of Maria Thomas Hand Lettering

Recently we helped design a custom invitation suite for a Napa Wedding using Maria Thomas Folio Design Invitations. Maria M. Thomas partners with Checkerboard to create beautiful Hand Lettering printed on High Quality Papers.  Maria M. Thomas custom designs the Monograms and motifs and Checkerboard creates a plate then uses offset printing to print the design on heavy weight stock created using two thick sheets laminated together resulting in a creamy luster and beautiful Stationery.  The results are below:  Fine Hand Lettered look for a beautiful event.

    Wow! It’s so beautiful. I admire the Hand Lettered Monogram in Die Cut Window and that gives it an elegant look for the invitation.
