After the Invitation: Cara & Stefan

Posted on June 26, 2015

Finally! Although their wedding was back in February, we have finally posted Cara and Stefan’s stunning invitation in the Custom Gallery. This was our first custom wedding in Australia and Cara and Stefan were such a pleasure to work with (of course who isn’t jealous of that delightful accent?). They were great proof that distance is no match when you find the right wedding vendor! After figuring out time differences, we Skyped and set out to design their woodland-inspired invitation. Cara knew she wanted to use real wood, but the rest of the details were in... Read more

Custom rubber stamping

Posted on April 07, 2015
​A fun, alternative way to traditional printing is to have custom rubber stamps made for each of your invitations’ cards. Today, we’re busy cutting out and stamping these clever hexagon website cards for Alexis and Brian’s invitation. Each of their suite’s cards will be hand-stamped, which lends a beautiful, one-of-a-kind feel to each guest’s invitation. It’s a labor of love, but the varied results are a perfect for those couples wanting a vintage flair. As a bonus, the stamp blocks double as great wedding keepsakes. Stay tuned in the coming weeks for the entire... Read more

Tuscany sketching

Posted on February 17, 2015
It’s right about now when it’s 0 degrees outside, that working on summer weddings becomes a sweet escape. It’s the perfect time to pour a cup of coffee and start sketching for warmer times. This week I’m working on some watercolor illustrations for a summer destination wedding in Tuscany—can’t you feel that golden sunshine warming your face already? Although we have a few months to go, stay tuned for the finished piece!

Pantone and envelope color matches

Posted on February 09, 2015

I’m excited to introduce an ever-so-helpful Shop feature added this week! We’ve added Pantone® color swatch number matches to most of the envelope and envelope liner products in the Shop. Colors on screens can vary and some are even hard to produce on a screen, so this added feature will help ensure that the product you receive will meet your expectations. It’s also perfect if you’re trying to coordinate your printed ink color to an envelope or liner. Enjoy!

After the invitation: Jen & Chris

Posted on November 21, 2014
Chasing the winter blues away today with photos from Jen and Chris’ coastal Maine wedding in September! We had the privilege of working with the couple starting with their invitation all the way through their custom thank you cards. Each component of their stationery was hand-drawn and hand-painted to give it a truly personal, yet relaxed, vibe. Being a destination wedding, it was important for guests to feel well cared for so a whole weekend of events was planned, starting with a beautiful, evening sail. Their custom stationery package included:

Break time!

Green Ivy and Neutral Wedding

Posted on October 19, 2014

We love getting a peek of the actual weddings we get to design for, and Alison and Kyle’s classic wedding is no exception. Their invitation was timeless; set in traditional typefaces and then gold foiled on luxurious cotton paper. To further reflect the elegant Drumore Estate, and in particular the gardens, we incorporated some of the beautiful green ivy found on the property for their day-of stationery. This included programs, table numbers, name cards held in birch tree stumps, a weekend events card, and guest box labels. Thank you Wiebners for the gorgeous photography!
