Classic Book Cover Wedding Invites – Its been a busy year so I havent had much time to post much on here, but here is a few photos of some recent classic book cover themed wedding invitations. Still a very popular choice for soon to be married couples I have designed book cover themed wedding invites for couple all over the world and shipped them to Australia, USA, Europe, Hong Kong and many more far off places.
The Penguin Books Wedding Invitations I have been producing over the past year or so are still as popular as ever. People go for all sorts of colours and finishes for their wedding invitations but the classic orange penguin books still is the most popular. This one below titled ‘All you need is Love’ is a perfect example of the bookish look that be achieved by the penguin books wedding invites. This one has been finished with some vintage staining to give it the aged and worn look that an old retro book may have after sitting about for 50 years.
These invites look great and are really brighten up where ever they are placed when on display. All these invites can be totally customised to suit your wedding, titles and themes.. if you are interested in these vintage orange penguin books wedding invitationsplease get in touch….
I have designed alot of wedding invitations based on book cover themes and especially penguin books classics covers, this next design follows that same format but the couple wanted the wedding invite to look and feel even more like an actual book. The only way to do this is obviously add some pages to the book and thats what I did. I took the information that on other invitation packs may appear as separate cards and put it all on to one book design.
So the first page is the front cover as normal, once you open the book invitation there then is an inlay page, on the left is a poem and then again on the first right hand page is the cover title again, much like you would see in an actual book. Once this next page is opened you are presented with the actual wedding invitation information. Flick on to the next page and there is more information about the wedding including maps and directions etc.
This book invitation looks really cool, the inside pages were all printed to look like an old aged book and have that vintage feel to it.Although it only has a couple of inside pages it really gives of the look and feel of a real book! Like the look of it? want it? contact me…
For the past year I have provided many couples with penguin books inspired book cover wedding invitations so I thought it was time to freshen things up and move forward 20 or 30 years and look at the designs of book covers from the 60s, 70s and beyond and try and use some of those retro themes to create some new book cover inspired wedding invitations which moves away from the classic 3 band covers. This one below for Denise and Robert is a perfect example to represent how any wedding invitation can be made look like a retro themed or vintage book cover.
This is a series of wedding invitations I designed which were based on book covers of old penguin books, some with a vintage feel to make them feel more old and worn. I have done these invitations in all sorts of colours and they look fantastic, nearly like a book in your hand…..
Penguin Books Wedding Stationery – Penguin books wedding invitations are very popular and most couples like to stick with the traditional colour of orange for their penguin books wedding invites but every now and again a couple will request a different colour, usually to tie in with their wedding theme colour. This is the case for Brian & Georgy. For their Penguin Books Wedding Stationery they wanted to have an aqua blue theme in their penguin books wedding invitations and these turned out amazing. They also ordered RSVP cards and directions cards which I tied into the whole theme and this resulted in a really nice wedding stationery set which you can see in the photos below…
Still proving very popular is the Penguin Books themed Wedding Invitations I have been doing for couples recently. This latest one takes on the title ‘A Country Wedding’ which becomes the title of the book cover / wedding invitation and reflects the bride and grooms garden and outdoors wedding day. The great thing about these book cover wedding invitations is they can lend themselves to nearly any wedding theme, or represent any special bond between a bride and groom by simply applying the theme to the books title. These are the perfect wedding invitations for any book lovers out there.
Last June a Lady contacted me saying she was a book lover and could I design her wedding invitations based on the concept of Penguin Book Covers. Little did I know that 8 months later she would only be the first of many and that there is so many book lovers out there who want to incorporate the idea of classic penguin books into their wedding invitations, wedding stationary and wedding days. In the past few months I have designed quite a lot of penguin books wedding invitations for bride and grooms and I can see the appeal. The latest one I have worked on here is for a Bride & Groom in England. They wanted an invitation that could be opened unlike the postcard style which I have done up until now. I was quite pleased to hear this as I think it further adds to the bookish feel of the invitation. The inside details of the wedding invitation I designed up like the first few pages you would see when you open a paper back book (I even had a paper back book effect in the background) and on the inner left side there is also a quote from Homer (not Homer Simpson!) who had many books published by penguin books. The invitations turned out fantastic as you can see in the photos below…
When I was contacted not even a year ago to design a couple some penguin books inspired wedding invitations I didn’t think 8 months later I would be still be providing book loving couples with similar styled invitations. But it seems the Penguin Books and Penguin Classics style of Wedding Invitation are hugely popular with book lovers and I have been providing them to couples all over the world. This is the latest one I have designed up for a couple in Texas, USA. This one is completed with a grungy finish to give it the impression of being an old book or vintage feel, it also uses one of the other colours found in penguin book covers instead of the traditional orange.

Sometimes as designer you get asked to work on some ‘different’ stuff so recently a couple approached me to design their wedding invitation in the style of the classic Penguin Books cover designs. I thought this was a bit alternative and quirky but it turns out that it is quite a popular thing to do so i tried to add a new twist to my design with the penguin bride and groom.
