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!

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

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!

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!

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!
