This is one of the prettiest, most-unique, one-color, wedding sets I’ve completed in the past few weeks and there are several more to come! A lovely Canadian bride, Laura, contacted me back in January about some Twin Ravens Press designs she had seen on Wedding Bee and a design that she really liked that she had seen on this blog. The design she really really liked was a design we had printed for another couple, Lindsay and Jordan, back in November of last year. You can read about that design here.
I hope everyone’s tax day went smoothly. So once again things are quite busy here and I don’t have any totally awesome photos of new work ready to show off to you at this moment, however, my mom sent me this awesome video today of one of my younger cousins skydiving in Arizona, and I must say, I don’t know that I would ever have the guts to do this, but it’s pretty kick ass, nonetheless. Check it out:
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.
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!
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! Check them out above and below:
I work with a lot of people all over the world who are getting married. These people want to share their life with another person completely. They want to start families. They want to be there for each other and support each other through good times and bad. In my opinion, it is beyond all reason that two individuals who want to be wed and have families should be prevented from doing so. I think that it’s pretty powerful and very lucky if you believe you’ve found that one person in your life that you want to share everything with and can’t imagine being without.
I don’t know why, but I saw this this morning and I must admit that it made me giggle, just a little bit…
