It’s really fun to open your mail and receive something other than bills and junk, and I wanted to let you all know, I got something totally awesome in the mail today! Last spring I worked with a couple in New York, who were married in June, on an awesome set of wedding invitation booklets that were letterpress printed on wildflower seeded paper and hand-bound by us. These invitations were featured on our blog here, back in May and they were one of the most complex (and beautiful) suites I’ve ever designed and produced, that utilized the talents of not only myself, but a couple of my other favorite artists/calligraphers/designers, Crystal Kluge and Fran Heider. You may recognize her invitations from another well-known wedding site, WeddingBee, if you had seen them before, but not from us. Erica is Mrs. Hermit Crab. Erica and her husband, Noah, were two of my favorite clients last year, and so it was awesome to receive some mail from them several months after their wedding had passed. They sent me the cute postcard that you see above with a photo of them on their wedding day, and the lovely blue canvas bag that you see below.
Erica’s postcard explained that she and Noah had had these bags printed for their out-of-town guests who were attending the wedding. The bags featured the same hand-drawn map by Crystal Kluge that they had commissioned for their invitation suite. I thought this was a cute idea, plus, I’m super-excited to have a bag of my own! If you wanted to see just a glimpse of what their invitations were like, you can below. The image on the left is of the actual invitation page in their booklet and the image on the right is of their map in the booklet.
