these business cards were printed for Hannah a few months back. She had submitted design files and specs for letterpress and we recommended based off the design. The stock we used for these cards were Gmund’s 110# cover in Pine duplexed to 110# black. The black side of the cards had a blind impression with a varnish printed in the pattern of a snake skin and then over-printed with studio info in a light tan as well.

For extra saturation we printed the information side in registration black so the pine paper didn’t show through (black tends to want to be extra transparent sometimes).

I love how these cards, paired with the edge painting, look like two almost completely different cards because of the two paper colors. Beautiful contrast, thanks Hannah for being so awesome to work with!

I love the minty teals in this image from Martha Stewart. It has officially started snowing here and so I am resigned to the fact that winter is fast approaching and it’s time to pull out the coats and hats and scarves.

Here are the final invitations for Jen and Christina. I love how the overlap of the blue and orange create a beautiful olive color on the leaves, this is one of my favorite designs to see printed in different colors because every single suite turns out so differently! This was the first RSVP where the couple requested music suggestions from guests. I thought it was brilliant, and so fitting for a wedding and RSVP. What a great way to involve guests! What you might not have noticed from photos alone is that this wedding suite was actually not a standard A7 (5×7″) wedding invitation. To save a little money (which can go a long way for a budget savvy bride) the election to go with a smaller A6 (4.5×6″) invite/announcement can help cut cost in postage and printing. It worked well also …
