Summer Sage Wedding at Blue Hill at Stone Barns

We are so excited to see one of our favorite couple's wedding featured on Carats and Cake site this week! Claire and Tom were a dream to collaborate with! Their save the date announcements featured a cow letterpress printed in a pale tint of soft blue, a nod to the wedding venue, Blue Hill at Stone Barns. They chose a soft sage colored floral design for their invitations to match the gorgeous flowers that would surround them on their wedding day. We worked closely with them for a year and it is great to see the pictures of this special couple on their wedding day!

Smashing the Glass - Wedding Blog

Karen from Smashing the Glass featured the gorgeous wedding of Natalie & Alex recently. We worked with them on their wedding invitations and just loved the whole suite! Its so nice to get a glimpse of the wedding, after working with a couple and we were so excited to see some of their beautiful photos. It was such a romantic wedding, and the bride and groom looked so wonderfully happy!

2014 Calendar Season

Just when it feels like we've emerged from the holiday rush, we have another nice little burst of busy-ness in early January! All of a sudden, it's time to start thinking of the year ahead and - more specifically - a pretty new calendar! Our 2014 calendar has been flying off the shelves and we are delighted! Our customers love the small scale of it, the bright colors and the pretty, seasonal illustrations.

We've had quite a few online mentions from some of our favorite blogs and we would love to share some of our favorites with you:

Sesame Letterpress in the New York Times!

Sorry we've been off the radar a little lately. We've had some exciting press in the New York Times and it's brought in lots of lovely orders in time for the holidays. The New York Times featured our spectacle notecards in their gift guide: you can read all about it here.

And in case you want a peek at the notecards in question, here's they are, complete with a gorgeous coral-red envelope liner.

A little bit of celebrity!

Sometimes we are asked to do some printing for clients who have quite a high profile. We never get too star-struck but at the same time, it's lovely to see our designs and printing featured online and in print. We recently bought ourselves a copy of Martha Stewart Weddings so we could take a look through their coverage of the wedding of Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds. We printed the letterpress borders which surrounded their silhouettes on the opening page of the article.

We also printed cards for guests to fill in with messages for the happy couple!

We Heart Stationery

Sesame Letterpress have been featured in Charlotte Rivers' new book, "I Heart Stationery". We're thrilled to be included alongside lots of other artists and designers who we really adore. We rushed out to buy a copy of the book hot off the presses (so to speak) and we wanted to share a few photos:

We love the pattern printed on the front and end papers of the book...isn't it pretty?
