Ashley + Ben save the dates

It's a nice break for me when a client comes in with their own design. This way, I get to sit back a bit and focus on the printing. Ben is an architecture student and was planning on laser cutting their save-the-dates himself on a piece of wood. Super cool. I love mixing wood with paper...

They just needed me to letterpress the enclosure and envelopes and to consult with them on production. It was very thoughtful of them to send me a complete set, I love how it all came together. Great job!

Cavallo wedding #2

Finished these Save-the-dates for another Cavallo wedding this time in August. Vintage/Americana themed paper goodness with a folded map and custom pattern inside. Lovely calligraphy in gold by Neither Snow with an assortment of vintage stamps collected by the bride.

Envelopes were hand-made, just folded text weight navy paper, glued the seam in the middle and ran one side through a sewing machine. We closed by folding the other end and sealed with custom letterpressed address labels.

We came across this envelope addressed to the White House while assembling. Apparently if you send the president an invite you will receive an official congratulatory letter. How fun, right? The bride and groom have a great sense of humor. I love this notion :)

Will be walking these up the street to the post office tomorrow. After spending so much time designing and crafting a set like this, letting them go is always so bitter-sweet. But the idea that people will be receiving these lovelies in the mail always makes me smile. So all the hard work is always worth it.

Cavallo wedding #1

Just delivered this Japanese-inspired wedding suite for clients Rachel and Blake who are getting married at Cavallo Point this spring. When we first met a couple of months ago the gingko trees just started to shed their pretty leaves and the image resonated with me. This design is organic from it's conception to final product. Love it when things just happen naturally :)

Stitching by Mira Aster -- Anne's attention to detail is exquisite.

envelopes were individually hand stamped

These were my setups, trying to get the yellow just right. The top ones were too dark for the job but I still really love the copper color base.

belly band with their monogram double "SS" that created a heart shape. cute.

Occupy Shop!

My good friend Camille (who used to intern here and is on my speed-dial of go-to people when I'm in a bind) came in this week to print signs for Occupy Wall Street.

Protest event info can be found here. (brave the rain if you must!)

Cam's posters were inspired by: Marie Antoinette. Cake. Revolution. (she's too awesome)

And was listening to this song while printing: http://youtu.be/auzfTPp4moA (and she's also a badass)
