With the end of school here, letterpress stationery is a must have for graduates. A cute monogram or a fun illustration is a great way to say thanks with a bit of style. We're loving these yellow sunglasses notecards because they're bright and cheerful, and have us looking forward to some fun in the sun. Nothing cooler than some shades to say thanks!
Here's a sneak peek of a wedding suite we worked on this winter. We're in love with the bright yellow painted edges on the invitation cards! It's such an unique wedding color, that catches your eye right away. Stay tuned for more shots of this Park City letterpress suite...
We've got bees on the brain! We printed these lovely little bees in black on mini manila tags. They were wrapped up with black and white baker's twine around gifts of honey. A nice extra touch to an already thoughtful gift.
These bee coasters are part of our Butterflies & Bug coaster sets, available on our site. They're such a bright sunny color, you can't help but smile when you see them. The Bee Thank You card is part of our Gray Gardens Card Set, also available online. It comes with 7 other nature inspired letterpress cards, all printed in neon colors.
This custom bee stationery is very sweet, and no image could be more fitting for the name! The little bee looks great printed in red ink.
We offer a range of finishing techniques, including corner rounding, edge painting and envelope lining. These are great ways to further customize your printed items. And if you're going to go for edge painting, why not choose a really bright, uplifting color? Like sunshine yellow!
This invitation layout is so pretty and understated. It features blind embossing for the heart illustrations and cool gray for the text. The yellow just adds an extra pop of goodness to the design!
The thank you cards continue the color palette of pale tinted illustration with cool gray text. We think the french "Merci Beaucoup" is a very sweet addition too!
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.
It's been a while since we posted any Save the Date cards. Over the past months we have printed lots of these. Many of our couples really like the banner design. It is simple and light-hearted and perfect for a summer wedding. We especially love how this card came out:
The yellow and gray inks perfectly complement each other and the pop of yellow on the edges adds another dimension to the design.
Here's a close-up to show the quality and depth of the printed impression:
When it comes to the RSVP for your wedding stationery, there are plenty of options. We are going to address these through a series of posts. First of all, the most simple option is to use a blank card which just requests that your guests respond by a certain date. This is a lovely way to encourage people to write you a personal message.
We love the color choice on the invitation above and the way in which the text is a little slanted and seems to run off the card slightly.
However, this style relies on the idea that your event is completely self-explanatory and all you need to know is who is coming. If you are having a few different events, or if you need to know menu choices in advance, you'll probably need a more in-depth RSVP.
