Signature Collection ‘Cosmopolitan’

Our Signature Collection stationery can be customized with an array of ink, envelope and liner colors. Every time we change the color combination for each one of our designs, it is interesting to see how the mood and tone of the set adapts to the client’s event. Here we customized our Cosmopolitan design with Mist (grey) and Spring (green) ink colors with our Mist envelopes and Sour Apple liners. You can view our standard customization options here, but we can also further accommodate any custom color/paper requests.

Tone-on-Tone: Bold and Subtle All In One?

We just can’t seem to get enough of our tone-on-tone letterpress effect. What we especially love about this printing technique is that you can really be bold and use intricate graphics, but since it is monochromatic, it is still very subtle and clean. Here are some samples from our designs

Creative Collars

One of the best things about the changing seasons, is updating your wardrobe! I am just loving the embellished collar trend…so feminine and soft. For a causal, yet trendy look it’s great to pair these with jeans or with a pencil skirt or slacks for a work look.

Hot off the press: Beautiful Olivia’s birth annoucement

We were thrilled to hear from our former wedding stationery client, Kendall and Nick Vitale, who just had a baby girl on the fourth of July. Of course, we incorporated red, white and blue and a whimsical, vintage take on the overall design of Olivia’s announcement. We incorporated a photograph of Olivia within the illustrative design on the front of the announcement and printed a photograph of her on the back as well. How can you not, when she is wearing such a cute headband! We had too much fun working on this…Congrats Kendall and Nick!

Ruth and Bryan – It’s all in the details!

I get to work with so many lovely brides and grooms, which makes it really, really difficult to pick favorites, but this one is definitely towards the top of the list 🙂 Ruth and Bryan got married at the gorgeous Kirkland Country Club in Ohio. We had the pleasure of working with them on their save the dates, invitations, programs, menus, coasters, down to details like pen holders! We designed an organic, a little bit vintage, fresh look that complimented the relaxed, garden-feel of the country club. The modern floral patterns, coupled with an abstract basket-weave pattern created a look that is elegant, formal but still festive and young! This feel was further accented with a gorgeous hand-drawn monogram that we infused into several different items within their stationery wardrobe. Their wedding colors of Navy and Marigold yellow were just great to work with as well.

The best part of it all is how exquisitely our designs were integrated into their event decor. Ruth is an industrial designer and has a flair for putting things together beautifully, as these images clearly show! I love it when couples can use their paper graphics to enhance the feel of their wedding day, and this is how custom design truly shines! For this reason, I always encourage brides and grooms to start their paper selection early on in their engagement, as the look and feel introduced in your paper goods can be a great platform to bounce from for all other wedding planning ideas.

Here are some images of the complete paper ensemble we designed for the lovely couple and other wedding details!
