Client Customization – Traditional With A Pop Of Color

As graphic designers we are often inspired by all creative avenues. We love when print design crosses paths with fashion or home decor. When our exclusive retailer Only The Best approached us with this design, we could not wait to see it in print. The overall textile-like pattern {printed in our varnish ink under charcoal letterpress} added to the accessory card of our Carneros invitation design adds even more visual interest to the overall design and really highlights the letterpress printing.

Framing the cards in a raspberry edge painting adds a delightful pop of color that we also love seeing in fashion and home decor. Do you have a favorite fashion or home decor statement you love to make? If so, tell us about it! We love the challenge of incorporating the personal style of all of our couples into their custom design.

Designer’s Desktop {Solage Letterpress Wedding Invitation}

In our Custom Wedding Portfolio II, we feature stand-out save the date cards at the start of the album. We are often asked what the corresponding invitation and response card would look like. Our Designer’s Desktop series is the perfect place to share these details with you!

One of those save the date cards is our Solage save the date, which incorporates a two-layer antique engraving frame and a space for your engagement photo. For the invitation, we use the same two-layer frame and instead of your engagement photo taking center stage, we replace it with your invitation wording. We kept the horizontal layout, which allows for the couples’ names to fall on the same line. The response card follows suit with a similar layout, but with a small shift in the frame detail to keep things interesting.

We love the way the vintage feel of the frame pairs with the traditional wedding invitation fonts and layout within it. The delicate balance not only makes a statement to your guests, but it also beautifully showcases the letterpress printing.

If you would love to see this design in print, contact us or one of our retailers and we would be more than happy to customize this design for you on your wedding day!

 

Designer’s Desktop {Monterey Baby Announcement}

We designed our Custom Wedding Portfolio II so that brides and grooms could find a ton of great inspiration for their wedding stationery and also easily bring to life the wedding invitation design they had been dreaming up. A bonus to creating a process so flexible and full of options was that the design elements could easily translate to special events beyond weddings.

Today in our Designer’s Desktop series we share a sweet baby announcement with you that was inspired by our Monterey wedding invitation suite.

The signature sunburst from the Monterey wedding invitation is placed at the top of this announcement and within it is the first initial of this sweet baby girl. Beneath the sunburst is her birth name in a graceful script. This letterpress printed design includes two playful ink colors – lemon and rose.

How would you use our Custom Wedding Portfolio for your special non-wedding events? Let us or one of our exclusive retailers walk you through the process and show you how easy it is to create a custom design for an occasion!

Designer’s Desktop {Kentfield Rehearsal Dinner Insert}

We began our Designer Desktop series to share hidden gems that will inspire you to create a unique design for your wedding invitation suite. These are designs we love, but have not had the opportunity to print quite yet.

One of these treasures is our Kentfield rehearsal dinner invitation. This petite card was designed as an accessory card to the main invitation. Without a separate mailing envelope, a rehearsal dinner invitation included with the wedding invitation can be any size you wish.

We all know how special the group who attends your rehearsal and rehearsal dinner is, so why not create an invitation for that event that feels just as special? This two color design includes the all-over floral pattern from our Kentfield invitation on this small square card with a pretty layout displaying multiple fonts that make it memorable.

Can we help you create a unique design for the people closest to you; a design for showing that close group of friends and family how much you cherish them and appreciate them standing by your side? Contact us or one of our retailers and we will help you define every detail of your wedding stationery suite.

Designer’s Desktop {Pink + Pearl Save the Date}

We’re back with another design from our Designer’s Desktop series. Since our design team is always creating new variations of the designs displayed in our wedding album, we want to share some of our favorite versions that we have created over the years. We hope that they will inspire you when designing your wedding stationery!

This square save the date design incorporates elements from our Fairfield wedding invitation suite using the sweet border detail on the front of the card. We love the combination of the festive script font in a bright fuchsia letterpress ink and the fine border stamped in a subtle pearl foil. On the back of the card. A detailed pattern is again stamped in the pearl foil adding lots of refined shimmer. A fuchsia painted edge completes the look.

Do you want to bring this design to life? Contact us or one of our retailers to personalize this look with your wedding details, color palette and favorite all-over pattern.
