Client Customization – Calligraphy with a burst of color!

Today’s client customization is a great example of how to use our custom design process to create a truly personalized stationery suite and an illustration of how small touches can have a big impact! The secret behind this customization is that it was actually customized twice! Please allow me to explain . . .

The original order came to us from our exclusive retailer Invitations and More, by Bonnie in New York. Bonnie and her client  created a beautiful, traditional design. Knowing that we can work with any supplied letterpress-friendly artwork {for no additional cost!}, Bonnie and her client sent us hand calligraphy. Working with calligraphers is something we do quite often and pairing letterpress printing and the hand of a true graphic artist is one of our favorite things to do. The letterpress printing and deep impression in our premium cotton papers has a way of really showcasing the thin and thick lines of hand lettering. Using our large royal size invitation {an oversized large square} in an off-white color, the calligraphy printed in black letterpress ink really showcases the hand calligraphy.

When our favorite industry magazine, Stationery Trends, was looking for images for their Chartreuse Color Wheel feature for their Winter 2012 issue, we thought it was the perfect opportunity to see what we could do to transform this traditional invitation suite. With just a simple edge painting embellishment we were able to create something completely different – and just as gorgeous! For the green edging, we chose a custom neon shade of green to really give it that pop we were looking for. Take a look for yourself:

We feel the story behind the two versions of this suite are a perfect marriage of what is current and what is always in style. Which version is your favorite? Are you classically traditional or do you like a splash of trendy mixed with your modern?
