Baby Announcements | Veronica Jane

Check out these absolutely adorable baby announcements we printed a few weeks ago for a good friend, Heidi, and her fiancee Derek’s, brand-new baby girl, Veronica!  Heidi and I played soccer together several years ago, when I was in college, so I was super excited to design and print the announcements for her first child!

Veronica’s announcements are an A2 size (measuring 4.25″x5.5″) and were printed on Crane Lettra Pearl White paper in two ink colors: chocolate brown and a light, bright purple.  When we talked about what sort of design she wanted for her baby announcements, Heidi told me that she had been receiving tons and tons of baby gifts with owls on them, so owls just seemed like the right motif.  At the time that we started designing, Heidi wasn’t sure if she was having a boy or a girl, so we also figured that depending on the colors we used, an owl design could work wonderfully for either gender.  As you can see, though, Veronica ended up being a girl, so we used purple as the accent color for the owl, tree leaves and her name on the announcement.

Another thing I just love about baby announcements is the fun, whimsical fonts you can use for them!  For Veronica’s announcements we used a mix of Tart Workshop’s “Silverstein” for the main font and “Leroy Brown” for the name.  Totally cute, don’t you think?!?

Heidi and Derek are getting married this upcoming spring and we’re also designing and letterpress printing their Save-the-Date cards and wedding invitations!  Check back in down the road if you want to get a peek at those!

Thanks so much Heidi & Derek!  You guys are awesome!

Custom Business Cards | Sarah Quest

I have an awesome friend named Sarah who finished massage school last year and is starting her own massage therapy business here in Eugene!  Lucky for me, Sarah (along with being awesome and my friend) is also a fan of letterpress printing.  Not too long ago she and I got together and designed and printed her first set of business cards, which you can see above and below:
Sarah’s cards are printed on Crane Lettra 100% cotton paper in Ecru in Chocolate Brown and Metallic Copper inks.  It may be a little difficult to see from the photos, but the majority of the printing on the card is brown with her name and the little flourish above the majority of the information printed in copper.  I think the little touches of copper were a very nice and slightly subtle accent to the card, which otherwise would have probably been only one color.  
As a massage therapist, Sarah offers Swedish, Thai, and Ashiatsu Massage, as well as Hot Stone Massage and Aromatherapy treatments.  She is currently working on building up her client base, so she is offering a new client special, referral specials and student discounts.  
I couldn’t possibly say enough on this blog about how awesome Sarah is as a massage therapist (and friend).  I go to her personally for all of the bodywork I’ve had and she is fabulous!  If you live in the Eugene/Springfield area and would like to get a massage, you should contact her by phone or e-mail (listed above on her business card – see photo) or online through her website.  Clicking on the link will take you directly to her site where you can view more information about Sarah, her pricing, and services, as well as book an appointment online.  How cool is that?!?  
Thanks so much Sarah, you are awesome!
