Ladyfingers Letterpress {Wedding Invitations}

I just opened a package from the lovely ladies at Ladyfingers Letterpress and was so charmed!  The gorgeous paper, the sassy inks and the delightful design make me stop in my tracks, and I just had to share this find with you.

Not only do I love this company's work, I really love their story and their company philosophy. The company owners, Morgan and Arley, met after both graduated from design school (one from RISD and one from Parsons). They fell in love, got engaged and couldn't find any wedding invitations that spoke to them so they did what any creative, entrepreneur-types would do: they started their own invitation company to be LGBT-friendly and appeal to all couples.

I also love that the company has a program they call "Ten Percent 4 Love." Because they feel so strongly that discrimination towards people because of their sexual preference, race, religion, etc, is wrong, they donate 10% of the total cost of every order placed through Ladyfingers Letterpress to the Human Rights Campaign. The Human Rights Campaign is a non-profit organization that works for equal rights and marriage equality in America.

 Be sure to check out the gorgeous work from these talented women who are making a difference one invitation at a time! And while you're perusing, be sure to read their bios. These are two cool women. Hot air ballooning and pie-making? When can we go hang out with them?
