Catching My Eye

Here are a few prints from around the web that have been catching my eye lately. I especially like the old printed style of the first three postage stamp designs...

Custom Wedding Invitations

I've spent a lot of time this year working on custom wedding invitations, but it mostly goes on behind the scenes (although I occasionally share pictures on Instagram). but today I wanted to share the finished product on a few invitations I have worked on recently.

First up is Blake and Saiba's Indian-inspired invitations. They chose letterpress, and I hand-drew the border and the elephants for this wedding suite. I love the color palette of coral, navy and turquoise that they used.

For Ashley and Steven's Ontario farm wedding, I block printed a monochromatic floral design on the invitation. Their wedding was in a barn so they wanted a rustic feel that incorporated the sage color they were using throughout.

Doug and Katie got married at a vineyard and used a palette of purple and lime green. I actually created this design for them and liked it so much I debuted it at the National Stationery Show. Luckily I got to be a guest at this amazing wedding!

Karlyn and Andrew had a Minnesota summer wedding and wanted to use a light purple floral theme throughout, so I created this block printed border for them and finished it off with a light purple liner.

So that is a look at what has been going on behind the scenes here! I loved working on all of these weddings and will have more to share as they roll off the press!

2014 Calendars are Here

It's back to school time again, and that means new office supplies (even if you aren't in school anymore). So with that in mind, the 2014 letterpress calendar is here! This border is done with a hand-carved linoleum block, and the text is added using a printing plate. It's done on a thick cream card stock, and is one of my favorite new products this year! You can find them in the shop right here.
