Check out these pretty Save-the-Date cards we finished a couple of weeks ago for a lovely couple right here in Eugene! You may remember the totally cute baby announcements that we created for Heidi and Derek’s daughter, Veronica, that we posted here back in September. They are such an awesome family and I’m so excited to be working with them now on wedding-related stationery! Heidi and Derek’s save-the-dates are a monarch size (measuring 3.75″x7.25″) and were printed in three ink colors: blue, green and yellow on awesome 100% cotton rag, bone white, Holyoke paper. They were paired with some pretty yellow monarch envelopes from Green Paper Company that have the couple’s return address printed in blue ink on the back flap.
Aren’t these pretty?!? I love how they incorporate all three ink colors Heidi wanted, without being over-the-top or busy. I also love all of the playful little vines shooting out from the flowers on the right side, they were really fun to draw and print. In the photos below you can see some close-ups of the impression the letterpress printing made in the Holyoke paper. Holyoke is quickly becoming one of my favorite papers to print on because it’s so soft, yet has some weight to it, and takes the letterpress impression beautifully.
If you like this design, keep checking back in a few months, because we’re currently working with Heidi and Derek on a set of coordinating wedding invitations and reply cards. Thanks so much Heidi & Derek! I’ll be talking to you soon!
