how timeless is this lettering by our talented new friend mary ellen?! we met over coffee and can’t wait to collaborate!
feeling all the beachy vibes on this balmy november day in philly! this weather has us thinking about our coral pink wedding suite we created for sascha and john’s destination wedding in hawaii. we teamed up with e. danae calligraphy to illustrate this drool-worthy map of maui in watercolor. she also wrote the couple’s names in calligraphy which were shown off in rose gold foil. we love how this color works with the burgundy letterpress wording. we added the soft pink pineapple to the front of the folded details card for some extra tropical flair and tied the package up with natural burgundy twine. we are thrilled with this suite and only wish we could have joined them under the palms in maui!

adding some finishing touches to my daughter’s headpiece for her halloween costume. in case you’re wondering, she has combined all things girly and has decided to be a unicorn-bride. i think this wedding industry stuff might be rubbing off on her!
introducing loveleigh’s latest creation . . . mr. declan grey! swooooooon! he arrived very very early yesterday morning. mom and baby are doing super. we are all pretty excited over here!!
once upon a time a bride named sarah and a groom named rob planned a dream wedding at a castle. this late 19th century castle is more commonly known as le chateau frontenac in quebec, canada. we hired mandy of myrtle and lloyd to illustrate the luxury resort with it’s green peeks and millions of windows. we love how she captured it’s splendor with those details. the illustration was printed flat on 2 ply cranes lettra and then the save the date information was printed as letterpress. we love this balance of modern clean type with a classic watercolor painting!
after a little diy session last night, i am now obsessed with making my own pom poms! here is a sneak peek of a mobile i am making for our baby boy’s black + white nursery. can’t wait to share the room with you all, it’s just about ready for our little man!
heading in to the last few hours of this hectic week like woah! you totally got this…it’s almost the weekend! this pretty little package is headed to one of our fave new clients, ashli stockton, of sunday forever. if you are in need of nice things for your besties, you should totally check out her shop!
we look forward to designing + printing alison conklin’s family holiday card each year. as we are getting into the holiday card rush for this fast approaching season, we realized we never shared this one from last year! alison’s beautiful photos of her sons were digitally printed on the front and back double ply cranes lettra. the front also featured blind deboss, blue letterpress and aqua foil stamping on top of the photo. the card was mailed out in a mustard yellow envelope with bright address label. the wallpaper of words printed on the envelope liner and blind deboss section of the card were all of the experiences their family was grateful for that year. this included her cover feature on martha stewart weddings ahhh, along with her son’s appearance on chopped junior! sounds like a pretty good year to us!
