A.M. Inspiration {roller skating and rocking color}

I’ve mentioned before that the early morning hours are a time when inspiration usually strikes – the hours when the world, and my children, are still and quiet. The whole process comes full circle when I can use that time to create something for my children.

I wanted to take my next few AM Inspiration posts to share some of the stationery I have created for my daughters. I love seeing the world through their eyes and creating Birthday party stationery to match their enthusiasm about their special days. Each year when a Birthday party comes to a close, they are already dreaming up the theme, activity and decor for next year’s party!

AM-Inspiration.RollerSkate

What five year old doesn’t love to roller skate?! My younger daughter is a girly-girl and loved the idea of skating into her fifth Birthday. I took the opportunity to play with patterns and color on this super festive invitation. Using stripes and florals in a mix of pink, turquoiose and purple we had the perfect palette for these fun letterpress Birthday party invitations and goodie bag tags. Playing right along with the mix of patterns was a festive set of fonts ranging from all-caps to bold scripts.

Suite Spotlight – Greenwich Letterpress Wedding Invitation

Spring is the perfect time for change and new growth! We’re excited to reveal the first of four new invitations added to our Custom Wedding Portfolio II. These new wedding invitation suites include designs that range from traditional and vintage to modern and whimsical! We have also added to our custom elements {90 new motifs, 20 new monograms and 63 new patterns} to give you more to play with when you’re creating your very own wedding stationery.

Our first new wedding invitation suite, Greenwich, celebrates the best of letterpress printing by pairing elements that showcase the letterpress impression with thick and thin lines. Details like the script and headline typefaces as well as the delicate, winding frame and surrounding lush pattern, make this suite perfect for a couple set on designing every detail of their wedding day. The tonal color palette of lavender and caramel letterpress inks lends to the overall romantic feel of this sweet design.

Client Customization – Morello (Orchid)

One of the amazing features available with our custom wedding portfolio is the option to choose any of the elements from our design library, such as motifs/patterns, fonts, ink colors and embellishments, and create your own wedding stationery design. Lauren and Gregory did just that by selecting a design and fonts that fit their vision the best, and creating this elegant orchid wedding invitation suite. The varnish letterpress ink color and the placement of the design leave a delicate and subtle, yet lasting impression in our minds!

Client Customization – Chalk Hill Letterpress Wedding Rehearsal Invitation

Rustic meets romantic on our Chalk Hill wedding stationery suite, which makes it perfect for events that range from casual to formal.

The French blue and copper inks beautifully highlight the winding florals and calligraphic fonts on their custom invitation, menu and place card.
