Featured! | Inside Weddings

I’m super-excited to announce that some of our work has been featured in the current, Winter 2011 issue of Inside Weddings Magazine!  This is the first time our company has been mentioned in a nation-wide print publication, so definitely worth celebrating!  We’ve had a lot of love from nationally and internationally read internet publications, like Wedding Bee, Green Wedding Shoes, Style Me Pretty, etc. over the past few years, but this is the first time we’ve been in a print publication!  I didn’t even know we were being mentioned until my lovely friend, Amanda Auer, owner of In the Now Weddings and Events in Los Angeles, sent me an e-mail saying to go down to the grocery store and pick up a copy.  Pretty exciting surprise, if I do say so myself!

The stationery that we created for the party being featured is a bridal shower invitation that was designed by Amanda’s talented staff and letterpress printed by us.  The invitation is a 5″ square that features only blind embossed text.  It’s very modern, and really takes advantage of the letterpress process.

If you’re having difficulties reading the text of the invitation in the picture above, here is what it says (I tried to take the best photo I could, but blind embossing is often difficult to capture in photographs):

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to share with us as we honor Bianca Juarez with joy before her impending marriage.  Saturday, the Seventh Day of August, Two Thousand and Ten.  Our celebration is set for 5 o’clock in the afternoon.  Please come wearing your Sunday best and donning all white in honor of diamonds.  Celebrating Bianca.

Below are some additional photos I took, including close-ups so you can check out the lovely blind embossing.

The bridal shower looks like it was a lovely affair from the pictures in the magazine, and I can’t wait to get other pictures that were taken by the photographers at Inside Weddings from Amanda when she has them.  The full spread (pages 72-73, if you pick up your own issue, is below).  Pretty, nifty!  Go us!

Sew in Love: Bridal Shower Cocktail Napkins

A couple of weeks ago, we printed a set of adorable, letterpress cocktail napkins for a bride-to-be named Ellie who is currently living in Portland.  Ellie was having a sewing-themed bridal shower in California and wanted some cute cocktail napkins for her party.  Ellie chose a light, tangerine-colored napkin and had us print the words “Sew in Love” on them in bright pink ink!  

Aren’t they just adorable?!?  Letterpress printed cocktail napkins are a really fun addition to any wedding, shower, party or other celebration!  Check out a couple of our older posts here and here to see some other napkins we’ve printed in the past.  Thanks Ellie!
