I just love coming home for the holidays and seeing what my mom has up her sleeve. I think if my mom were 20 now, she’d be the other Grace Bonney. Always full of amazing fashion finds, ahead of the interior design curve and still there to offer timeless decorating tips – my mom was the go to lady in my world of fashion. She is the queen of mixing and matching things and somehow making it all work together. Check out her lovely table setting of Spode and randomly collected vintage glass.

These business card design proofs were done for a photographer duo in California who have a great eye and make for an amazing husband/wife team. Emma and Alfred Salom of Alfred Salom Photography came to me with their logo wanting to obviously explore letterpress business cards and some concept of the birds taking flight on their card. They were going with minimal design, small logo and something that would really stand the test of time. After going over some blind impression options with the printing, they decided to punch the color and do a grey/citron green color combo to harmonize with their current branding and website. Check back soon for RII and the final printed piece!

These A6 cards are letterpress printed and would fit a great wallet or 3×5″ photo of kids, family or a couple.

Here are the final printed business cards for Michelle Cottrell. As stated in the design brief and proofs, Michelle wanted something classic, elegant and professional. We ended up combining two of the initial designs to create the final business card. A touch of calligraphy and a non-offensive script (who can’t resist Bickham Pro with all the fabulous ligatures), these cards were letterpress printed on 110# Lettra paper in 2 colors of ink: Latte/Brown. I’ve been noticing a lot of trending toward those colors lately. Cut as a 2.5×2.5″ Square with 1/4″ rounded corners, they turned out quite fancy I think! If you’d like some business or contact cards of your own, I generally do all orders custom and would love to work with you! Right now I’m taking about six custom business card jobs a month on top of other work, so …

to you for being patient and giving me a much needed break from blogging. It’s been killing me to not be able to post every day but when push comes to shove, I had too much work (and cute children) that needed my attention. With that said, I’ve been slowing things down a little here so as to gear up for the holidays and now that I’ve had some time to breathe I’ll be resuming more regular posting. I can’t believe how much work has gone through the studio these last few weeks so expect some fun new product and posts over the holiday season. Thanks again for being patient, you’ll be rewarded for your loyalty! These letterpress thank you tags were shipped for a bride who is having a holiday wedding. She was looking for some letterpress escort tags and favor …
