Okay, this one isn’t letterpress, or wedding, or stationery related in the slightest, so if that’s all you’ve come for, you may want to skip it. However, I saw this photo this morning on ffffound! and thought I needed to share it with you. It seems like living in a college town you see tons of “Lost Dog” and “Lost Cat” posters up on telephone posts and bulletin boards every spring (well, and all times of the year), but I thought that this poster, even though it probably wasn’t put up in my town, was, in a word: awesome.
Around the same time that I completed this wedding suite for Linda & James in New York, I also completed a lovely set of Save-the-Dates for a bride in Boston who is getting married this summer in Hawaii! The bride-to-be, Allison, came across the design we did for Mrs. Coconut on Weddingbee and really loved the scroll pattern that we used. She wanted to somehow incorporate our scroll pattern into her Save-the-Dates and eventually her full invitation suite. She also wanted to incorporate a little bit of Hawaii into the design, since she’s having a destination wedding, and we thought that using a pretty pink hibiscus flower would be a great way to do that. You can see the completed Save-the-Date at the top of this post, with the matching envelope, and you can also see it here:
Today I thought I would share with you the first Bat Mitzvah invitation suite I ever designed and printed. This isn’t a newly completed job, but it’s less than a year in the past and I thought it was a lovely one! I’m also showing this one off because it lead us to another client who ordered invitations for her son’s Bar Mitzvah which will be held next week – those invitations turned out awesome as well, and I will share them with you soon!
You may remember a post I did back in October, prior to the most recent Presidential Election about some cards that I designed and printed in support of the Obama campaign. You don’t remember that post? Well then, you can go back and read about it here. We ended up giving away all of the cards as a result of that posting and today I received a lovely e-mail message from one of the recipients. She wrote:
I’m one of the people that you gave an Obama card to back in October and I just wanted to let you know how it ended up. I framed it and gave it to my mom for Christmas. I was a little nervous about it because it was a good bit smaller in comparison and not made by me as my sisters presents were, but she absolutely loved it. (She definitely got a little teary eyed.)Thank you so much!
to do a really deep impression and this is what you get. I don’t recommend going super-deep on pieces that are double-sided because it can make them hard to read, but for this design I think it worked out well.
I’m very excited about a rather large wedding invitation order that I’ve been working on printing this past week. The wedding colors are deep plum and white and I’ve already printed the invitations, reply cards, outer invitation envelopes and reply card envelopes. Those four pieces, as well as the unprinted inner invitation envelopes are on our house paper, Crane Lettra in Pearl White, printed with deep plum colored ink. This wedding set also includes a reception card, menus and programs. The reception card, menus and programs are being printed in a cream (almost white) colored ink on a custom made deep plum colored paper. I just finished the reception cards and boy do they look cool!
