Today is my last post with loveleigh. I am now off to my last semester of school! I had such an amazing experience creating stationery and assisting with social media. I wanted to share my latest letterpress project with you all. It’s a page from the book, To Kill a Mockingbird, that took a few hours to test and print. I am happy with the two ink colors that I chose, a dark eggplant purple contrasted with a light moss green. I am currently in the process of printing a poster for the book and one page for a calendar. Each student is in charge of designing a month and then we are going to put everyone’s pages together to create a 2018 calendar. I hope you all enjoyed seeing what I’ve been up to. Have a great weekend!
i am back…with a 2 month old! i hope everyone had a great new year, we surely did. please meet declan grey! he will be my loveleigh assistant as my maternity leave comes to an end. looking forward to a brand new year with all of our clients.
I am taking a letterpress class during my winter break. So far I have created a test print of a dog and sun that I may turn into a card and made a vintage Christmas coaster. My teacher has a room full of drawers filled with type and image letterpress pieces. Right now we are currently working on a book page with one paragraph of text. It takes many hours to sort through each letter and line each word up correctly. I have learned that you need set up each word backwards which makes it difficult. It’s a fun class, but I am thankful that printing today is a lot quicker and easier!
happy 2018!! congrats to all of the newly engaged couples out there! we look forward to connecting and creating with you!
kelly + dario’s waterworks save the date was a crowd favorite last year. there is just something extraordinarily special about having your venue hand painted for your wedding stationery. it seems to be taking the place of the monogram. mandy of myrtle and lloyd, illustrated this iconic philadelphia scene and we printed it in full color on luxe cranes lettra paper with letterpress wording beneath. keep this concept in mind for your own save the date, we are happy to turn any venue into a watercolor keepsake.

the prettiest leftovers from my daughter’s rainbow cat birthday party. we’ll promise to post the full invitation soon!
My mom upcycles old pieces of jewelry, beads and small figurines and creates one of a kind picture frames. In between mid-terms today I went back to my house and started picking through some of the trinkets to make my own. I haven’t started gluing them onto the frame yet. If it turns out anything like my moms does, it’ll be pretty! And might even become a Christmas gift!
