sUPER excited about these. While the bride ended up going in a different design direction, they will be printed as a split-fountain on Gmund Savanna Limba paper (its pre-embossed with a fabulous wood grain). I think my favorite from this round has to be the oak with custom typographic swashes. You?

You may remember these that we showed back as a sneak peek in October. And then of course I was slow to getting around to blogging the full set of photos! Fifi is from Australia and a recent grad and contacted us in hopes that 1) we shipped internationally, and 2) We accepted designed files for press. Lucky for her, we do both and were super excited to print these cards for her. Letterpress printed on 220# Arturo as a 2/1 card, I love the softness of the blushy-pink pantone match paired with the sophisticated black ink/black edge paint. Sized at 2×3.5″ and printed as an initial set of 250 (our minimum opening order for a set of custom or client submitted files) you can get an estimate for yourself here - we are already booking the press for March and April!

I’m just slightly infatuated with pantone, if you haven’t noticed. And this year the 2012 color of the year is Tangerine Tango! I love how the yellows are being infiltrated by the oranges now. This was a wedding suite for a November wedding for Preeya. First off, she was SO fabulous to work with and had the most amazing mood board. (See at the bottom). She was right on the money regarding color trends and the design was so fun to develop with her. The suite was printed on 110# cotton paper, 2 inks, paired with gravel envelopes and dark gravel ink. Pieces included Invitation, Directions, Details and RSVP cards for the letterpress pieces, and then place cards and menu for digital pieces for the day of events. To price out an invitation suite like Preeya’s head over to the shop and …

These were another set of proofs for Jennifer and Cristina for their autumn wedding. I love the exploration of the Japanese maple leaves – they remind me of the progression of a leaf as it flutters down, falling from a tree. I also LOVE how when making a full circle, as in the proofs on the bottom, there is a lost and found element within the ring of leaves – do you see it? If so what is it? ………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Calling cards never get old for me. Seeing the calligraphy by Kathryn of Della Carta is magical every time it shows up in my inbox. These were letterpress printed on 110# luxe white paper in gravel ink with papaya edge painting.  Sold in sets of 50, this is a great way to get into a set of calling cards without the investment of meeting the press minimum of 250 cards for a custom print order. Get an estimate here, these are always a big hit for gifts for the holidays and turn around super quick!
