WEDDING INVITATION INSPIRATION GALLERY

Considering my small, but ever growing collection of metal and wood type, it's not surprising that one might wonder how pre-designed ornaments or borders can create endless options of design layouts and style . Below are a few sample collections of digital representations of what centuries old moveable type can offer. These are but a glimpse to the hundreds of various metal ornaments and type I have been curating since 2015.
