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?

Tilted Sky is a business by couple Lindsey & Stephen who shoot some pretty awesome wedding filmography for your big day. Lindsey approached us with a seemingly challenging project in that she wanted  the look of a gradient/split-fountain in a very small print area. Easy for flat printing, challenging for letterpress printing. After working long and hard on her files and the concept she was going for, we finally decided to go with the solution to have the gradient sky printed via flat printing on our 110# paper, and then ran it through our presses for the final print run with a light silver ink for their business info. Above and below are two pre-press proofs that we pulled for Lindsey so she could compare the color of the gradient, the value of the line screen clouds (which were hard to photograph …

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 …

We are already two months into winter here so needless to say, my mind is wandering to more tropical climates. These shipped out for a destination wedding and let me tell you, I SO wish I was somewhere warm right now. We have  lose to eight feet of snow banks on our road in places. These were letterpress printed on lettra paper, 220# as a 2-color job. One thing I’m finding is that lettra – while a great paper – seems to exaggerate the “salty” look when printing large ink areas. It seems that paired with the texture and composition of the paper there is less ink absorbancy when printing a flood in comparison to other papers (Mohawk and Arturo come to mind specifically as having better absorbancy). In the end, I think it depends on what sort of look you are …

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!

On occasion we are asked to take one of our existing designs and adapt it to a new color scheme as well as size. Nicole wanted her invites similar to Sarah and Jeff’s but adapted to the 6″ Square invitation size. Her wedding will be a tropical destination wedding and she’s drawing off the bright fuchsia and green hues to convey the type of event she is going for. Below are the proofs adapted to Nicole’s specifications, I can’t wait to show you the finished piece!!

When I was a girl growing up, we used to spend a week or two in the summers up at my granparent’s cabin in the Uintah Mountains in Northern Utah. My favorite thing about that area was the abundant overgrowth of aspen trees in the forest that surrounded the valley in which we’d drive up. I remember as a little girl falling asleep at night to the rustling of the aspens in the breeze and thinking how relaxing and fun our adventures up there were. These tags shipped for a late summer wedding for Mindy & Brian, who were getting hitched in Aspen, Colorado. I never get tired of printing these tags, partly because I have a special place in my heart for aspen tress and also because their colors are so saturated in the fall. What a beautiful time of year …

Hey guys and dolls! So I’ve been working on a few things that are new and I’m almost ready to unveil. However I am totally stumped with one of the designs I’ve been working on and thought I’d put it out there for a critique from you all. Who doesn’t love the story of Tristian and Isolde? I know I do, and in a perfect legend they would have gotten hitched instead of Isolde marrying King Mark of Cornwall. Of course I love Celtic knot patterns and thought it fitting to design a wedding suite for Tristian and Isolde true to her Irish heritage. The thing I’m hung up on are colors and the bridal logo. It’s been harder for me to pull this suite together as a cohesive whole and am looking for feedback. Does the bridal logo look like a …

These were presented to a bride who was looking for a bright fall wedding suite for her event in October. Option 1: Maple Leaf wedding suite This concept plays off a beautiful photo of a wedding cake with the maple leaves that the client sent over. Seeing that she had mentioned wanting bright colors, we explored oranges and warm coral/red on this option. We were going for elegant with the calligraphy typeface however wanted to explore some unique layouts for this. The inner envelope would be lined with the maple leaves liner, and the outer envelope is the cream, matching the paper stock used for the invites. The inner envelope is in poppy and both envelopes would look beautiful addressed with chocolate ink for her guests. ……………………………………… Option 2: Heart Thumbprint wedding invitations We LOVED the thumbprint heart concept that the client …
