These lovely letterpress invitations were designed by a client for a fall wedding. The design features a lovely, paisley pattern in the background, printed in a subtle tint. The beautiful bright green ink steals the show, and we love that sweet heart on the invitation. Its always fun to print such a unique design with bold colors.
Most of our printing is custom: our clients love having personalized items with their name/monogram or other individual details included. And for an additional bespoke element, how about choosing your own paper to line envelopes? You can go for something simple in a single color or choose a really unique fine paper with a pattern or design. We love how the ink color used on this thank you card is picked up in the verdant lining paper used for the envelopes:
We just finished printing gorgeous business cards for a mobile sunless tanning service. The designer created a pretty sunshine-yellow pattern for the back of the card and a simple layout for the front.
We like how the single yellow circle looped over the business name is then repeated in the graphic on the reverse:
This is such a charming card design: we love how the letterpress impression creates the feel of a textile in that repeating pattern.
Paper is precious to us and we hate to let anything go to waste, so when we set up a project to print, we will use scraps of paper or misprinted cards to test the color and impression. Once we get as far in the set up process as we can go using scraps, we'll use clean paper to proof before we start the print run. Sometimes the test prints can be really beautiful with strange mixes of color and type etc... Here is a photo of a coaster created by testing two of the new graphic prints, one on top of the other. I would love a dress made out of this pattern!
