Save the Date | Hillary & Peter are Getting Married!

HillaryHenthorn1Check out these fun, festive, letterpress save-the-date cards we created for local, Eugene couple, Hillary & Peter for their upcoming wedding at Sweet Cheeks Winery in July!  When Hillary met with me at the beginning of this year to discuss her design options, she really fell in love with our new Confetti Thank You Cards, which you can see below, and wanted to do some sort of similar motif for her save-the-dates.

IMG_6869I loved the idea of incorporating the two-color confetti pattern into more stationery, so we changed up the colors just a little bit and came up with these:

HillaryHenthorn2Hillary and Peter’s save-the-dates are a double-sided postcard featuring black letterpress ink and gold foil stamping on the front side, and their return address and space for writing their recipients’ addresses in black ink on the reverse side.  Hillary chose a fun combination of fonts that to me, look vaguely reminiscent of the elvish writing from Lord of the Rings.  These save-the-dates were printed on 100% cotton paper.  Check out how shiny the gold foil is below!

HillaryHenthorn3I just love how these turned out and can’t wait to continue working with Hillary and Peter on their main invitations!

If you’re interested in working with us on fancy letterpress printing and/or foil stamping for your upcoming wedding (or anything else), get in touch!  We’d love to work with you!

Weddings | Catherine & Ross

Catherine&Ross3

Last year we had the privilege of working on a really beautiful set of custom wedding invitations with local graphic designer, Brianne Beigh, and Seattle, Washington couple, Catherine & Ross, for their late July wedding.  I love the combination of handwriting and modern san-serif fonts that Brianne used in this design, and I adore how she kept the colors and style of all the pieces coordinating from the save-the-dates (which were printed much earlier in the year) to the invitation suite!

Catherine&Ross4

Striking combinations of metallic gold, matte gold, and a deep slate grey on crisp white paper really made for a stunning, and formal combination of color!  I love how we were able to find a really fun gold on cream patterned envelope liner paper for each of the invitation envelopes that coordinated so well with the design and ink colors used on the wedding invitation!

Catherine&Ross5Catherine&Ross6

The reply card and envelope was also designed to match and featured one ink color (slate grey) on the same, crisp, white, 100% cotton paper.  The rsvp envelopes were unlined and had the couple’s address letterpress printed in matte white foil on a dark grey envelope.

The save-the-dates, which were designed and printed much earlier in the year, also matched the invitation suite!

I just love how everything in this suite turned out!

Catherine and Ross worked with Seattle photographer, Barbie Hull, for their wedding photography, and Barbie was kind enough to share the image below of the invitations which she took on their wedding day!

So beautiful!

Thank you so much again, Brianne, Catherine, and Ross, for working with me!  If you ever need anything else, please don’t hesitate to let me know!

Save-the-Date | Sara & Jay are Getting Married!

IMG_6880

Happy Friday, everyone!  Check out the awesome, playful, wedding save-the-date postcards that we just finished earlier this afternoon!  These cards are roughly an A2-size, but were laser-cut into an Oregon shape, since the couple is getting married in Oregon this summer.  I loved the idea of doing a postcard in a unique shape and totally jumped at the chance to work with Sara and Jay on making these a reality!

IMG_6881

Sara sent us the adorable photo of her and jay that you see above, and we had them printed on linen paper.  That linen paper with the photo was then duplexed onto a custom 100% cotton letterpress paper, and laser-cut into the Oregon shape that you see above.  After the laser-cutting was complete, each save-the-date was letterpress printed on an antique, 1912 Chandler & Price Letterpress in our shop in one ink color (a medium forrest green) on the reverse side!

Sara3

These were designed to be mailed as postcards, so the information we printed is on the left, and Sara and Jay will put their guest’s addresses and stamps on the right side.

Aren’t they just too cool?!?  Thanks so much for working with us on these Sara & Jay!

Save-the-Date | Matthew & Lea Are Getting Married!

MatthewLea2Earlier this year I had the pleasure of working with a lovely couple who I know through the dance community who are getting married in Portland, Oregon next summer.  Matthew and Lea wanted a simple, but elegant, letterpress save-the-date card to announce their upcoming nuptials incorporating some kind of rose motif and art deco styling.  I think we nailed it.

The save-the-dates you see below are 4″x6″ and were printed on an Antique White 100% cotton paper with chocolate brown ink.  They are double-sided and feature the save-the-date information and rose motif on the front, and a simple backside for the recipient’s address on the reverse.  We were able to incorporate a vintage, art deco border design and 1920s-style fonts into the design to make it really look as though it were right out of that era!  They really turned out beautifully!

Send It As A Postcard!

DestinyThankYou1Check out these awesome, letterpress, post card, thank you cards that we just finished for recent newly-weds Destiny & Daniel of Eugene, Oregon!  These postcard thank you’s feature a digitally printed photograph from their wedding on a linen paper that we then custom duplexed onto our 100% cotton letterpress paper and then printed their postcard design on the back!  Doing this is a fantastic and seamless way to incorporate a photograph into your letterpress printed piece!

DestinyThankYou4  DestinyThankYou3These post cards are 6″x4″ and are a perfect way to send a quick wedding thank you without having to order envelopes or use full-priced envelope stamps!  I think this would be a lovely idea for a save-the-date, shower invitation, or holiday card as well!  We can even foil stamp extra wording on the front along with the photograph, if you’d like!

Check out this close-up of the awesome letterpress impression we were able to create on the back:

DestinyThankYou2Whether your celebration and style are vintage or modern, sending a post card is sure to be a hit!  Thanks so much for working with us on these Destiny!!

Save the Date | Meghan & Terence are Getting Married!

It’s hard to believe it, but fall is just around the corner, folks!  Check out these gorgeous fall-themed Save-the-Date coasters that we printed for Meghan and Terrance this past spring!  They were designed by the father-of-the-bride, and printed by us in two ink colors: orange and chocolate brown on premium, duplex Holyoke 100% cotton rag paper.  I love the fancy leaf border on these!  They’re so classy!  Each save-the-date coaster was paired with a matching cream-colored envelope.

If you’re getting married this fall, and haven’t ordered your invitations yet, you had best get a move on it!  If you’re getting married next fall, it’s never too early to start thinking about your save-the-dates!

Save the Date | Tiffany & Mike are Getting Married!

I’ve shown this design once before, but it’s one of my favorites for a save-the-date!  We created this set of Save-the-Dates for California couple, Tiffany & Mike, who are getting married at the end of September.  These were printed in one ink color: chocolate brown, on 100% cotton paper and were paired with a kraft string + button envelope!  Aren’t they sweet?!?

*As you may have noticed over the past few days, the content of my blog posts has been getting shorter.  The reason for this is that trying to write long, detailed posts, and then getting busy with orders, was often leading to me not posting at all.  Because I love sharing photos of the new, cool things we’re working on with you, I’d rather have many posts that are light on text and heavy on pictures, than no posts at all for multiple months.  With that said, if there’s ever images of a set of stationery here that aren’t accompanied by a detailed post, please feel free to contact me about it, and I’d be more than happy to answer any specific questions you may have.  🙂
