Congratulations to Kristiana & Marlon for their romantic wedding in the Rose Garden at Lyndhurst Mansion. What could be more perfect than our Roses design for this outdoor wedding? Dark charcoal ink and a tinted embossing of flowers look beautiful together on warm white invitations. The Rehearsal Dinner and website cards have roses printed in a blush pink tint, that blends well behind the charcoal ink.
Congrats to Stephanie & Stefan for their wedding in Brooklyn this week! They were married at Liberty Warehouse, which has views of the iconic Statue of Liberty, which inspired their invitation design. They chose our Vintage NYC template and we created a monogram using the Statue of Liberty, to be used on the invite and thank you notes. A vintage map of Brooklyn lined the envelope for a deluxe look.
Its not often that we get to work with a couple having two weddings. Elettra and Kenneth were lucky enough to have nuptial events in New York City and at a family home in northern Italy. They highlighted each invitation with a nod to an essential landmark - the Chrysler Building for the NYC event, and a mountain range for the Italian. We created a custom map for each event as well, which was a fun project to tackle.
The exhibition “Made In New York: The Business Of Folk Art,” curated by Elizabeth V. Warren, currently on view at the American Folk Art Museum in New York dives into the rich history of folk art in New York City. With works ranging from portraiture to shop signs, this exhibition highlights the fact that folk art was not just happening in small rural areas, but that there was a flourishing community of painters, printers, potters, and other artisans working in the five boroughs of New York. Many of these artists were self-taught or learn their trade through traditional apprenticeships or family businesses. The exhibition includes works created from 1760 to 1915 including a beautiful Optician’s trade sign from the E.G. Washburne & Co., a painting of the Flushing, a paddle wheeler, by James Bard, and a variety of embroidery samplers, among many other amazing objects. Laura Beach in her review of the exhibition for Antiques and the Arts Weekly states, “its true beauty lies in its meticulous reconstruction of a place and its people.” The exhibitions runs through July 28, 2019.

Congratulations Alicia and Jonathan! We worked with them to customize our Hudson design by adding a tinted silhouette of the Statue of Liberty to the background and a sky blue border. The result is subtle and cool - a perfect reflection of their personality.
All of the suites in our collection are designed to be customized to complement each couple's wedding style. Our Hudson suite has a minimal, sophisticated style that is particularly nice for a wedding in the city. Here are examples of how two couples personalized this design for their weddings this summer.
Congratulations Christa and Brett! We loved working with this couple on a beautiful set that combined our Hudson design with some subtle cherry blossom imagery. Their save the date featured a tinted vintage map of New York, which looks classic with black text.
January can be cold and bleak outside, but this month in the studio we're thinking of spring and summer as we're in the thick of the "Save the Date" printing season.
These cards can be lighthearted and more casual than the formal invitation, printing in brighter colors or creative formats (like bookmarks or coasters) or they can match the design closely so the guests have a sense of the celebration to come.
Regardless of the design, the text for these is usually very minimal. It typically includes the names of the couple, the date, the city of the wedding and often a website address for guests to refer to for details on travel, accommodations, wedding registries etc... For more samples of Save the Date wording, please visit our website where we've added sample text for all the cards in a suite.
