Suite Spotlight – Hot Air Balloon Letterpress Baby Stationery

We are sharing a very special Suite Spotlight with you today. This sweet set of baby stationery was created for a family we have had the pleasure of working with for many years – from bridal showers, wedding invitations, personal stationery and now, baby announcements. As usual, the client worked with our design team and our Custom Wedding Portfolio II program and selected all of their favorite elements to create a perfectly custom stationery suite.

First up, we wanted to share with you an inspiration board that includes all of the elements incorporated into this darling suite. The board includes everything from shower details to color palette and sweet treats to serve guests … and you can’t miss the photo of the precious recipient of all of this gorgeous stationery!

The final suite included baby shower invitations, thank you notes and the baby announcement all featuring sketches of vintage hot air balloons. We love how the color palette varied for each piece, but still coordinated perfectly to tell the story. For the shower pieces, the color palette was chosen with mom in mind too and featured both pink and blue along with a gorgeous neutral gray. For the thank you notes and announcement, a softer palette was chosen since baby was the focus. The mix of fonts coordinated perfectly with the vintage theme and were used to highlight the most important details.

Client Customization – Festive Foil Save the Date

Nothing says “celebration” more than confetti and foil! We love the way that bride and groom Maddie and Ryan created a fresh new design using the modern feel of our Stinson wedding suite as inspiration. Working with exclusive retailer Weddings Etc. and our Custom Wedding Portfolio II, this couple created a modern foil and letterpress save the date for their summer wedding!

Get the Look – Marsala and Mixed Metallics

With Pantone’s recent announcement of Color of the Year for 2015, we thought one of our Get the Look posts would give our design team an opportunity to express their admiration for marsala! The details below explore our current favorite way to incorporate this strong color into you wedding stationery.

Rich color and elegant foil are the standout elements in this Gucci ad. Imagine your wedding invitation printed in our deep rouge ink on an ecru micah duplexed paper stock. The highlight of the suite are the mixed metallics with the gold edge painting on the thick shimmering card. Embellished with a luxurious bordeaux double-faced satin, this suite has the power to make a bold, strong statement.
