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!

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!

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!

We created the above postcard earlier this summer for the newlyweds to use as a thank you card after their wedding!  Their wedding photo was digitally printed on linen paper and then was custom duplexed to a 100% cotton backing sheet that we then letterpress printed with a postcard design!  This is a wonderful, classy way to incorporate a digitally printed photo into a letterpress printed piece!

Last, but not least, don’t forget baby announcements!  Twin Ravens Press had the joy of printing the announcements below for one of my best friends, shortly after the birth of her first son!  The letterpress printing was done in two inks and one foil color and then a real, black & white photo of Miles was tipped on to the left of the text!  Adorable.
