More Than Just Paper

Our printing company, Lettered Olive, is know for beautiful and classic letterpress designs. And, on luxurious Italian paper. But, there are so many more things Lettered Olive does. And, today we are sharing it all with you.

One of our best known services is our event branding. Always custom for the client, wedding welcome bags usually include snacks, water bottles, and sometimes even embroidered items all branded for the event. For example, logos, monograms, illustrations, or even sayings can be turned into packaging.

Escort or seating cards usually get a creative touch also. An embroidered monogram runner anchors the table here, and is given to the couple afterwards to have in their new home. And, we used little garden signs handwritten with guests’ names in individual pots of herbs for seating.

Another huge hit lately, are our wardrobe tags. Often found in the wedding welcome booklets, guests can hang up their outfits and coordinate with each event.

Don’t forget all of the little extras. For late night food passed on the dance floor, at a Chicago wedding, custom printed pizza boxes wowed guests. And, everyone loves to take home matchbooks, custom of course. Finally, as an added detail for speciality drinks, or a dessert station, our wooden drink stirrers have so many uses.

Custom cocktail napkins are a must. For this wedding, favorite fun phrases from the bride’s favorite movies, books, and poems were printed. Guests loved getting a new quote every time. And, we even printed a few on the custom pillows that were used throughout the reception lounge.

Often, we work on many other weekend events, like rehearsal dinners. These tend to be great places to have fun and step outside the box from traditional invites.

We have definitely become known for our bar designs over the years. Custom printed fabric is often the design of choice. And, we think taking a pretty pattern used somewhere in the wedding papers is always a good choice to print on fabric. Of course, it can be used to also make pillows, lampshades, tray liners for food service, etc.
