We’re wrapping up Ashley and Jace’s stationery, but just had to share a delightful detail they’ve included on their invitation cards. By increasing the paper thickness, we were able to bring in a cost-efficient way to add their accent color of metallic gold. True metallics aren’t possible with digital printing, but by painting the edges of their card by hand, they were still able to incorporate it. Plus, who doesn’t love a little hidden detail?
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.

We’ve been noticing this spring the rumblings of an upcoming (and totally delightful) trend—pineapples! Any why not? They’re totally quirky, tropical and fun, which is everything a great summer wedding bash should be. Follow us on Pinterest and take a peek at our Pining for Pineapple board!
We have been so blessed to work with Cara and Stefan on their custom wedding invitation. Cara’s ideas were like nothing we’ve done before so stay tuned for the photos. In the meantime, you won’t want to miss this cinematic intro to their emotional wedding, set in the lush landscape of Australia. Thanks to What Pete Shot for sharing this with us! It’s always a pleasure to see our couples enjoying the culmination of months of planning!
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!
The studio is picking up momentum again as we enter the new year! I’m already working on some fresh ideas for the store and of course for custom design clients as well! Take a peek at the new Theroux return address stamp and keep checking for new items throughout the year!
Thank you to everyone who supported Anticipate this year! It’s been nothing short of amazing and we truly look forward to everything that 2015 has in store (some great things are already in the works!). We hope you enjoy this sacred time of year with those you love most and savor the brief respite from a busy year. Cheers!
As 2014 draws to a close, we start looking for new wall calendar art to adorn our studio walls. But, who says you have to go new for the new year? Did you know the following vintage calendar years will also have Thursday as January 1st? 1903, 1914, 1925, 1931, 1942, 1953, 1959, 1970, 1981, 1987, 1998, 2009. They also make a great gift!
This blog post is brought to you by my son, Westin, who loves to pop into my studio unannounced! I’m so blessed to make Anticipate a family business and thank you all for your continued support (Westin says ‘thanks’ too)!
