Weddings | Lauren & Brian

A couple of weeks ago, over President’s Day weekend, three wonderful couples that we worked with were married.  The first of the three were Lauren & Brian, who’s wedding stationery you can see above.  I’ve been working with Lauren and Brian, and Lauren’s awesome mom, Judy, for several months now, and I’m so excited to be finally showing off their stationery!  Their invitation suite, which you can see above featured a fun and modern A9 size invite printed in two ink colors: orange and black.  The invite was paired with a matching A9 envelope that was lined with a really fun orange Lokta paper.  We also designed and printed coordinating reply cards and envelopes to match.  

Inspiration for a design can come from a variety of places, and for Lauren and Brian’s stationery, the inspiration was the fun, orange, screenprinted Lokta paper that we ended up using for Lauren & Brian’s envelope liners that her mom, Judy, found.  I love the fresh orange-on-white pattern of this paper, and we found it to be the perfect motif to work with for Lauren and Brian’s stationery.  Towards the top of the invite you can see a tiny section of the pattern printed above the typography in orange.  Love it!

Several months prior to printing their wedding stationery, Lauren had hired us to print her Save-the-Dates.  Their save-the-dates were 4″ square coasters, letterpress printed with black ink and paired with little black envelopes.  If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you may recognize the design.  It was originally created for a couple named Vi & Lalo a year earlier.

Lauren loved the modern typography from the Save-the-Date design, so when I went to design their invitations, I made sure to incorporate some of the same fonts for consistency from the first piece of their stationery onward.  However, for the main invitations, we also incorporated a second ink color (orange) and some pretty, modern script for their names.

Isn’t this a lovely invitation?!?  These invites were printed on 100% cotton rag Holyoke Paper for a lovely impression that you can both see and feel.

Below is an image of the invite envelope so you can see the awesome liner better!  The photo in the top right shows the flap, which was printed with Lauren’s mom’s return address in black ink.  In the lower right image you can see their coordinating rsvp card and envelope.  The rsvp envelope was printed with Judy’s address in orange ink, and the reply card featured the same script we used for Lauren and Brian’s names for the word “Please”, and the other font from the invitation for the rest of the text in black ink.

Gotta love that deep, luxurious letterpress impression!

For the day of the wedding, Judy also had us design a set of matching wedding menus for the reception.  These were also printed on Holyoke paper in the same orange ink that we used for the invitations.

I just love how all of this stationery turned out!  Judy told me that they were able to incorporate the orange patterned lokta paper into other decorative elements for the wedding, like decorative votive wrappers, etc.  I’m sure everything looked amazing!

Wanna see the awesome couple that this pretty stationery was created for?  Here you go (all photos courtesy of Jacob Mariano Photography):

Don’t they look like a fun-loving, awesome couple?!?  Lauren, Brian and Judy – Thank you so much for working with me on your wedding stationery!  It was so much fun to work with you.  If anyone would like to check out more images from Lauren and Brian’s engagement photo session, you can on Jacob Mariano’s blog.

Thanks so much again Lauren, Brian & Judy!  You guys are awesome!

Weddings | Lindsay & Shawn

A couple of weeks ago I finished a very beautiful and elaborate set of wedding invitations for California couple Lindsay and Shawn’s upcoming wedding in La Quinta at the end of February.  We’ve been working with Lindsay and Shawn for a while now.  I posted about their awesome, letterpress + photo save-the-dates back in September here.  Lindsay and Shawn have an awesome sense of style and we were able to create several gorgeous pieces using the same colors and design elements that we had previously used for their save-the-dates.  Their wedding invitation suite included an A7 size wedding invitation with coordinating inner/outer envelope sets, a 4bar size reply card with coordinating envelope, an A2 size reception card, and an A6 size map/directions card.  The entire suite was printed in one ink color, black, on 100% cotton Holyoke paper in Antique White.  We created a gorgeous invitation wrap out of light pink, lacy, Japanese Uzumaki paper and tied the package shut with a custom letterpress printed monogram medallion belly band.  We also printed letterpress wedding menus and place cards for Lindsay and Shawn, which you will see farther down in this post.

A beautiful set of invitations often begins with a beautiful set of envelopes, so let’s start there.  Lindsay and Shawn chose to go the traditional route with their envelopes and had us print an inner/outer set.  Both envelopes have pointed flaps and are 100% cotton envelopes from Crane & Co.  The outer invitation envelope is simply printed with their return address in black ink.  The inner invitation envelope features no printing, but a lovely custom lining made from screen printed, floral, lokta paper in black and white that Lindsay picked out.  I really love the pattern she picked and I think it compliments the rest of her suite beautifully!  In the image on the top right above, you can see what the inner envelope looks like, opened with the invitation package inside.  It’s just gorgeous!

Here is what the invitation suite looks like when you pull it out of the envelope.  Lindsay and Shawn’s invitation, reply card and envelope, reception card and directions card are all stacked in order of size and wrapped in a custom-made, light pink, spiral, Japanese Uzumaki paper.  This paper is tissue thin, yet fairly strong and totally beautiful!  When we talked about what their guests would see when opening the invitations, I thought it would be lovely if the pieces were held together in some sort of package, and this is the solution we came up with!  I just love how functional, yet delicate, and beautiful this invitation wrap is!  The wrap is tied closed with a 2″ round monogram medallion that was printed and die-cut from Holyoke paper, and has a 1/4″ wide, black satin ribbon threaded through it.  All of the materials and textures of this suite and just gorgeous together!

Lindsay and Shawn’s wedding invitation is an A7 size and is the largest and most prominent piece in the package you see above.  For the invitation design, we used Lindsay’s damask pattern from her Save-the-Dates to decorate the bottom of the invitation and her monogram at the top.  The text is laid out in a traditional arrangement with the couple’s names in a lovely script font and the other information in a classic serif face!  I just love the impression that letterpress printing this design created in the Holyoke Paper.  It’s just as beautiful to touch as it is to look at!

Lindsay and Shawn’s directions and reception cards were designed to match the invitation and were also printed in black ink on Holyoke paper.  For these two cards we used the damask pattern on the side, rather than the bottom, and continued to utilize the same script and serif typefaces from the invitation.  For the directions card, I created a small map of La Quinta and Indian Wells with Lindsay and Shawn’s church, rehearsal dinner location, and reception location on it.  This card should be a handy little reference for guests who are trying to get from one venue to the next.

Lindsay and Shawn’s reply card and envelope, which were also designed to match, are a 4bar size and were printed in black ink.  Like the invitation, we used the damask pattern to decorate the bottom, and Lindsay used my adorable animal and vegetable icons for her reception entrée choices for guests to indicate.  You may have remembered that we used light pink envelopes for Lindsay and Shawn’s Save-the-Dates.  We used the same color of pink envelopes her her reply card envelopes to tie the suite together even more!

Lindsay has a couple of bridesmaids who are taking calligraphy classes, and they offered to do calligraphy for her invitation envelopes and for her place cards.  So that they would have plenty of time to do the place cards, as Lindsay and Shawn get their reply cards back, we designed and printed their place cards at the same time as the invitation suite.  These beauties are traditional, simple, and match the invitations perfectly.  They were printed on Holyoke Paper as well, and feature Lindsay and Shawn’s damask pattern on the fold of each tented card.  The pattern wraps from back to front, as you can see in the photo below, making both sides pretty and perfect for writing guest’s names.  You can also see another image of the belly band and the Japanese Uzumaki paper we used for the invite wrap in the photo below – just ’cause I thought it was pretty!

For the wedding reception, we also designed and letterpress printed a set of lovely wedding menus to go at each place setting.  Lindsay and Shawn’s menus are a #10 size and feature their monogram at the top and damask pattern on the bottom.  We used their script font for the headers of each course and the traditional serif face we’ve been using all along for the descriptions of each dish.  Aren’t these gorgeous as well?!?

Last, but certainly not least, Lindsay and Shawn wanted a nice little rehearsal dinner invitation that would coordinate with their wedding invitations, but not necessarily match them.  For these A2 size invites, we lost the damask pattern and monogram, but kept the same fonts as the other pieces in the suite.  Lindsay wanted to use a small motif that would speak to their southern California location, so we chose a small, vintage-looking palm tree image to decorate the top.  These cards also came with light pink envelopes in the same shade as the envelopes we used for their reply cards and Save-the-Dates.

I’ve absolutely loved working with Lindsay and Shawn so far on all of the paper goods for their wedding!  Lindsay and I are currently working on designing some thank you cards and wedding programs to go with this suite, so I’ll be posting photos of those as well, when they’re done.  Thanks so much Lindsay & Shawn!  Talk to you soon!

Beautiful Wedding Photos from Italy

Remember those gorgeous blue and silver wedding invitations we designed and printed earlier this summer for Julie & Joe’s wedding in Italy that were posted here at the beginning of this month?  Well, Julie was kind enough to send over some photos from her and Joe’s gorgeous wedding, as well as some photos of her programs, place cards, menus and itineraries on-location!  Check them out below!

Isn’t that one of the most romantic photos you’ve ever seen?!?  Julie, Joe and Santa Margherita, Italy all look just beautiful!  Below you can see a few different images of both Julie & Joe’s wedding itinerary and their ceremony programs.  I love the silver ribbon Julie used to tie the programs together!

Below is maybe one of the most beautifully set tables I’ve ever seen.  I love Julie’s flowers!  You can also see the letterpress menus and place cards we created for her and Joe in several of these photos.  All of the place card calligraphy was done by the fabulous Fran Heider of Little Flower Calligraphy.

And, one more of their lovely menus and placecards as well as the beautiful bride and handsome groom!  Thanks so much for sharing these with us Julie!  Your wedding was absolutely gorgeous!

Weddings | Julie & Joe

Happy October everyone!  I can’t believe 2010 is flying by so fast.  It’s amazing.  At any rate, Twin Ravens Press has a very big congratulations for San Francisco couple, Julie & Joe, today.  Julie and Joe ordered their wedding invitations and other paper goods from Twin Ravens and are getting married today in Italy (actually they are already married and having their reception, since Italy is so far ahead time-zone wise, but you get where I’m going with this).  We worked with Julie and Joe on several different stationery pieces for their wedding, from invitations to pieces for the actual ceremony and reception (happening now!!).  You can see their whole invitation suite at the top of this post which included an A7 size invitation printed in two ink colors: deep navy blue and silver, a 4bar reply card, matching envelopes for both and a custom letterpress printed belly band.

All of Julie and Joe’s stationery was printed on Crane Lettra 100% cotton Pearl White Paper in one or two ink colors: deep navy blue and/or metallic silver.  Their envelopes were also from Crane’s Lettra line and were pearl white with square flaps.  When you first opened Julie & Joe’s wedding invitation, this is what you would see:

Isn’t that a gorgeous package?!?  Julie and Joe’s envelopes were printed with silver ink and all of the pieces in their invitation suite were held together with a custom printed, paper belly band that had the word “Amore” (“Love” in Italian) in script in the center of it.

Above you can see their invitation by itself.  Julie wanted to invoke a sense of old-world style and romance for her Italian wedding with her invitation.  The invitation we designed is a traditional A7 size and featured a delicate, formal, romantic border, printed in blue ink all the way around.  Inside the border, we used three different fonts for the text of the invitation.  Julie and Joe’s names as well as the name of the church where they are being married in Italy were done in the fanciest script of the suite, with lots of delicate flourishes.  We used a simpler, but still very decorative, script face for the wedding date and Julie’s parent’s names, and then we used a still formal, but less decorative, classic serif typeface for the rest of the text.  It’s sometimes difficult to incorporate a lot of fonts into a design without making the design too busy, but I think the way we did it for Julie & Joe’s stationery turned out really really elegant.

We also created a 4bar size response card to accompany their invitation.  The response card was printed in blue and the envelope for it was printed in silver ink.  We still managed to incorporate all three fonts in to the actual card and we used a very decorative circular motif, printed large for the decoration on the card.  The reply envelopes featured Julie’s parent’s address on the front and a small flourish on the back flap, both in silver ink.  In the group of photos below you can see detail photos of the reply card, both envelopes and the belly band.

After their invitations were mailed out, Julie and Joe hired Twin Ravens Press again to create some additional stationery pieces for their actual ceremony and reception.  Here is their wedding program:

The program is also an A7 size with a fold in the center to create a little booklet.  We helped Julie design the interior pages for this piece as well.  In order to save some money on printing, Julie opted to have the cover of her programs letterpress printed and the interior pages digitally printed.  This is a great way to save money on programs and other pieces that may have multiple pages, while still maintaining the look and style of letterpress printing.  For this design I created a couple of new flourish-y border elements with birds, and we utilized the same fonts and same dark blue ink color that we had used on the invitations.  Julie also had me print a short, sweet little message on the back of each program, which you can see in the bottom right photo of the above grouping.

Many of Julie & Joe’s guests were planning to spend time in Italy before and after the wedding as well.  Since Julie and Joe wanted to spend as much time with their guests as possible and also give them ideas and tips on other things to do in and around Santa Margherita, they had me also design and print a wedding itinerary booklet for each guest.  Like the program, the cover of these itineraries was letterpress printed and the interior pages were digitally printed.  Julie’s guide included tips on things to see, places to eat, maps and other things to do.  It seems like a really fantastic guide, especially for guests who had never travelled to Italy before.

The left and top right image in the above grouping are of the Itinerary cover.  The image in the bottom right is of their place cards for the reception.  These place cards are tented and feature a little bit of the motif from their belly band and reply card in the bottom left corner, and a brand new border printed in blue ink.  Julie hired the fabulous Fran Heider of Little Flower Calligraphy to calligraph both her invitation envelopes and her place cards.  If you are in need of a calligrapher for you upcoming event, I can’t say enough good things about Fran and her work.  She’s just fabulous!

Last, but certainly not least, Julie and Joe also hired us to design and print a set of wedding menus for their reception dinner.  Julie and Joe planned to have a traditional, Italian, multi-course dinner for their wedding reception.  I lived in Italy for a short time in college and, let me tell you, one of the best things about Italy is the food and the way the Italians take their time and enjoy it.  As you can see from the above menu, their wedding dinner involved five amazing-sounding courses.  We printed these menus in both English and Italian in blue ink on a #10 size, long and skinny piece of paper.  The border we used for the design is the same border I created for them for their invitation.  Aren’t those gorgeous, and doesn’t their dinner just sound amazing!?!

Julie and Joe were so much fun to work with and I’m sure that their wedding in Italy today has been amazing.  Julie promised to share pictures from the day once they are back in the States, and I can’t wait to see them!  Congratulations Julie & Joe!  Have a wonderful rest of your trip, and we’ll talk to you soon!

Beautiful Bilingual Korean & English Wedding Menus & Thank You Cards


Back in March I created a really beautiful green and chocolate brown wedding suite for a couple in New York City who were getting married in June named Linda & James.  If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you may remember seeing their invitations quite a while ago.  If you’re new to the blog, or don’t remember this particular couple, you can check out their wedding invitations here.  Linda and I had such a great time working together and she loved the way her invites turned out so much that she ended up hiring me to design and print her wedding menus and thank you cards at a later date.  Linda & James’ thank you cards and menus turned out so great that even though it’s past their wedding at this point, I needed to show them to you anyway!  

Because Linda’s family is Korean and her husband James’ family is American, they decided it would be best to do a bilingual menu for their wedding.  I’ve done a handful of bilingual invitations and other stationery pieces before, but before this one, hadn’t ever done one in an Asian language.  It was exciting!  You can see the three pieces (menu, thank you card and thank you card envelope) together at the top of this post.  Here is an image of just the menu by itself (click on the image if you want to see it bigger): 
Linda’s menu was a custom size.  It’s long and skinny measuring 3.75″x11″.  We used the same scroll pattern from Linda’s invitation and reply card at the top and bottom of the menu and carried the same fonts over from the original suite.  Now, I must confess that I can’t read, write, or speak Korean, even in the smallest amount, but Linda was great with sending over not only all of the text typed out, but telling me where it needed to be broken up and what characters went with what segments of the english text.  Even if you can’t actually read it like me, check it out, the letterpress printed Korean is beautiful!  
I love it!  If you’re a prospective client and would like to do any or all of your stationery in multiple languages, have no fear!  I love this sort of challenge!  As long as you’re willing to correct my faulty grammar, spelling and/or (as Linda did) write out the exact wording as you want it to appear in your second language, I’d be more than happy to letterpress print it for you.  
Linda also ordered a set of matching thank you notes and envelopes to use after her wedding at the same time that she ordered her gorgeous menus.  
The thank you notes were a 4bar size, folded, printed in one ink color on Crane Lettra Pearl White Paper and came with a corresponding green 4bar envelope from Green Paper Company.  We used the same bird and scroll motifs from the rest of the stationery for these cards as well as the same fonts we had been using all along.  Aren’t they cute?  
Congratulations and thanks again, Linda & James!

Just off the Press: Round Wedding Menus!


I just finished printing a set of gorgeous wedding menus for a couple who are getting married in Spain next Saturday.  I’ve been working with the bride and groom that these are for for several months now and this is the final piece they are having me print for their wedding.  The couple I’m speaking of are Isabel and Luis, who I printed a gorgeous set of wedding invitations for back in January.  I wrote about working with Isabel and about her wedding invitations in a couple of other blog posts, which you can find here and here.  

Like her other letterpress pieces, Isa designed her wedding menus herself and sent her design to me to be letterpress printed.  Like her other pieces, the menus are bilingual, english and spanish and feature a gorgeous, ornate-looking, romantic design.  These menus are also extremely unique in that they are 5.5″ circle shapes.  In order to print these, I first printed them on a square 6″ sheet of Crane Lettra 100% cotton ecru paper in violet ink and then die-cut each one on the letterpress using a sharp, custom-made, steel 5.5″ round circle die.  As, you can see from the above photo, they turned out magnificently!  (Click on the photo if you’d like to see a bigger version).  
I really loved Isabel’s fancy designs throughout her whole suite.  Here is a close-up of some of the ornate, beautiful pattern on the top of the menu: 
The design is beautiful and really shows off the letterpress detail and impression very well!   These menus were rush shipped off to Spain this afternoon so that Isabel and Luis can enjoy them at their reception next weekend.  
Congratulations again, Isabel and Luis!  Thanks again!  

Weddings | Lisa & James are Getting Married (today!)

It’s currently early in the morning out here on the west coast, but as it’s almost one o’clock in the afternoon in Massachusetts I think that it’s safe to assume that two of my recent custom clients, Lisa & James, may be getting married right now, if they aren’t married already.  Several months ago I was asked to customize one of our standard thank you card designs for a wedding by a customer (Lisa) through the Etsy shop.  Lisa had discovered our Elegant Scroll Thank You Cards in blue and decided they would be perfect for her then-upcoming February wedding.  Then in Mid-December, Lisa contacted me again.  She loved her thank you cards so much that she wanted to know if I could create both a set of custom menus and a set of custom programs for her wedding.  I told her we absolutely could!  You can see a photo of both the program and menu at the top of this post.  
Lisa is having a somewhat more traditional wedding ceremony in a church in Massachusetts and as such, wanted a more formal, classic and elegant design for her menus and programs.  She chose to do them in one color: navy blue, to go along with the other blues she was using in her wedding.  Here is the table menu:
Lisa’s menu is an A2 size (4.25″ x 5.5″) and features a very simple design with a gorgeous little motif at the top that we carried through both pieces, and two lovely fonts.  We letterpress printed these on Crane’s 100% cotton Lettra paper in Pearl White.  I love the little graphic motif at the top of the menu.  The fine lines really captured the subtle impression of the letterpress so well, along with the typography!
The second piece I designed for Lisa was a custom program.  Often when I’m asked to do programs, the client wants me to just design and print the cover, from which they will glue, staple or sew in the actual program page(s) that they’ve had flat printed later.  Because it was so close to her wedding though, Lisa already had all of the information for the inside of her programs and asked if we could print it all letterpress.  Let me tell you: those programs are beautiful.  They are a traditional, folded A7 size (5″ x 7″) and are printed in one color (still navy blue).  I used the same graphic motif from the menus on both the front and inside of the program.  Here is an image of the front cover:  
I love the way the capital serif font we used harmonizes with the script font we chose for the names.  Isn’t it pretty?  And, here is the inside:
You’ll have to excuse my fingers at the bottom of the picture.  Since the program was printed on reasonably heavy, 110 lb. paper and had just been scored and folded right before I took the photos, they didn’t really want to stay open on their own.  We went with a very traditional format for the program with the information about the wedding party on the left side and the actual program for the ceremony on the right.  If you’re considering a more traditional format for your ceremony program you may want to click on the above photo to see it larger.  I really like how Lisa chose to list both the family/wedding party information and how she arranged the actual different elements of the ceremony for a program.  It’s informative, but to-the-point and oh so pretty!  As far as impression goes – I love how when you are printing double-sided on the Crane Lettra paper you can still feel a slight impression on both sides, but you can’t see the text from one side to the other (on a program or other item where you’re reading both sides, it would be pretty ugly to see a lot of impression from one side on the next).  
If you’d like more information about custom letterpress printed wedding programs, menus or other stationery, please contact me at: [email protected]
Congratulations Lisa & James and have a wonderful wedding day, today!  

Weddings | Lynn & Matthew

This will be the first of many posts on this blog regarding weddings and custom wedding stationary.  When I first started Twin Ravens Press I knew that I was really interested in doing custom letterpress printing and design work, one on one, for various clients.  Don’t get me wrong, I like doing the cards and other commercial printed items for etsy, arts & crafts shows, and retailers a lot, and I get really excited every time I sell something to someone somewhere where I’ve never sold anything before (so excited in fact that I’m tracking them on a map like you do in elementary school, but more on that later), but there’s just something so much more awesome about getting to create work for an individual client.   It’s even more awesome when said client is great to work with and really excited about what you’re doing.  Lynn & Matthew were this kind of client.  
I’m not entirely sure at the moment where Lynn found out about me.  It could have been through my etsy shop, or from another blogger who blogged about my work, but it was most likely from a previous client blogging about my work on her wedding bee blog.   You see, Lynn is also a blogger on wedding bee (she’s Miss Coconut), so I’m guessing that’s probably where she found me.  
When I first started working with Lynn she told me that her wedding colors were chocolate brown and yellow and that she really liked my elegant scroll pattern thank you cards from etsy and that she was also trying to incorporate a bird theme into her invitations, decorations and other stationary items.  Check out this cute reception poster she found from another etsy seller.  After trying out some different ideas based on this info, this is what we came up with:
The entire stationary suite incorporates both yellow and chocolate brown inks on Crane Lettra Pearl White 100% cotton letterpress paper.  This job was a lot of fun because we got to create so many different pieces and it’s always fun figuring out how to use a theme throughout several pieces in the design.  
The main piece of any custom wedding stationary suite, is of course the invitation.  Lynn & Matthew’s invitations are an A7 size invite and incorporate both colors and two of the three fonts we used throughout the suite.  You can see photos and close-ups of just the invitation and invitation envelope below.  (Please Note:  there will be selective blurring of certain information on the following photos to protect the client’s privacy).  
Here is the invitation with both the front and back of the envelope.  The address on the flap was letterpress printed in yellow ink and Lynn hired a calligrapher to do all of the recipient addresses on the front of the envelopes.  I don’t personally do calligraphy, nor does my shop offer it, but I think that it’s awesome when people use it for their stationary.  

To complete their invitation package Lynn and Matthew also ordered some cute RSVP cards with matching envelopes and a Directions/Accommodations card.  Both the RSVP and Directions/Accommodations cards are double-sided.  I modified a map Lynn provided for the map on their directions card so that it would fit in a little better with the whole “look” of the other pieces and elements in the suite.  I think it turned out really well.  You can see photos and details of both cards below: 

The top photo above is the RSVP card, front and back, with envelope and the second photo is detail images of the RSVP card.  Below are details of the accommodations/directions card.  
Another popular option that I like to offer my clients for their stationary is thank you cards.  I think this is a really nice thing to get, especially if the couple getting married has gift registries. Sending out matching thank you cards for your wedding presents to your guests is always a classy gesture.  Check out Lynn and Matthew’s thank yous below:

Sometimes my clients also order stationary items for their actual ceremony.  Lynn and Matthew ordered program covers, menus and place cards for theirs.  The program covers are square and were printed on chocolate brown Waste Not Paper with yellow ink.  For the place cards I printed a small scroll pattern on the bottom and Lynn’s calligrapher is going to write the individual names on each of the cards.  You can see pictures of these three pieces below.  

Last but not least, when I started designing all of the little “extras” for Lynn, one of the designs I came up with was for a custom coaster for them to use at their ceremony.  I kind of like the idea of having coasters at a ceremony for cocktails or during the dinner and I think that making them custom to your specific ceremony and design taste is really cool.  Believe it or not, I actually had never printed coasters prior to this custom job.  When looking at everything else they were getting L & M didn’t think they had room in their budget for this one extra thing, but since they were such totally awesome customers (and they had already ordered so much stuff!), and I liked the design and wanted to try out printing some coasters, I decided to print them for them anyway as an early wedding present.  The turned out pretty good, don’t you think?  

I’ll be posting about more upcoming and past custom wedding jobs in the future, but I thought that this was a great one to start with because it was so much fun and really shows off all of the different types of things that Twin Ravens Press can do for a wedding or other event.  Lynn was really excited about all aspects of the process and about her stationary.  If you’d like to read what she had to say about the stationary or about working with Twin Ravens Press you can find it on her personal blog here and here.  Or on wedding bee here, here, or here.  Another wedding website also read what she wrote and wrote about it here.  Check it out!
Congratulations Lynn & Matthew!!  Thanks for being so awesome!
