 celebrated their super fun wedding at the front + palmer this july.  we built up their guests excitement for their big day with these playful geometric invitations pressed with the brightest inks. we absolutely adore this saturated chartreuse pattern on the invitation, not to mention the humorous reply faces for guest to fill out their ‘feelings’ on coming or not! the two cards were bound with black and white twine with and orange tag listing their website. the final package was stuffed into a lighting bolt-lined kraft envelope and beautifully addressed by hello bird.

we recently designed brand new business cards for our ultra fun friend and calligrapher, mandy, of myrtle & lloyd. she wanted a letterpress card that was both chic and sophisticated, but still expressed her creative personality and talent. her beautiful, hand-drawn logo was blind de-bossed on the front and her contact information was pressed on the back in warm charcoal gray ink. the minimal design was the perfect palette for mandy to add a custom wash of watercolor to each card. we love this idea and hope her clients do too!

chuck and steve will be wed in a few short weeks at a formal affair at the atrium at the curtis center in philadelphia, pennsylvania. they requested a timeless and masculine design with classic fonts and a color palette of black, white and charcoal grey. their letterpress invitation was adhered to a metallic charcoal pocketfold which held their response card, black reply envelope and details card complete with a custom map. their suite was finished with a black satin ribbon and silver metallic custom monogrammed tag. the package was mailed to guests in a black envelope and hand addressed in metallic silver ink by one of their best friends, joe giampaolo.

work wednesday: connelly-newman realty holiday card.

we thought this year’s connelly-newman realty holiday card was perfect to share on this snowy winter day! just like their twenty thirteen card, we partnered with an illustrator to create a custom painting for the front of the card. mandy curtis from myrtle & lloyd painted a cozy stone home glowing with warmth on a cold winter’s night. they selected the poem stopping by woods on a snowy evening, by robert frost, for the interior. the cards were mailed in a vibrant rust colored envelope and sealed with a custom mailing label.

work wednesday: rachel + ron.

rachel and ron celebrated their nuptials back in november at their garden-fairytale-destination wedding in new orleans, louisiana. their ceremony was held at corpus christi-epiphany church and the good times rolled into their reception at the pavilion of two sisters. we really enjoyed creating their iconic new orleans save the date last year, however, they requested their invitation suite to have a more romantic and formal vibe. with a similar color palette of plum and olive green, we designed their stacked package which allowed us to overlap rustic magnolias with other enchanted patterns. their letterpress invitation was a combination of formal and handwritten scripts decorated with hand-drawn flourishes. they selected an rsvp postcard and a folded information card which housed the remaining details plus a custom map of the french quarter to encourage their guests to explore. we finished the package with natural and metallic gold baker’s twine and a custom monogrammed tag. their layered bundle was mailed to guests in a gold glitter lined kraft envelope and hand addressed in metallic plum ink by the fabulous mandy from myrtle & lloyd. we were also asked to create a few day of pieces including these kraft paper menus and over-sized wedding programs.

we wish the newlyweds a happily ever after and look forward to sharing the big day in a few weeks.

work wednesday: stephanie + marc.

stephanie and marc were wed on the last number sequential date of the year, 12.13.14, at the upscale crystal tea room in philadelphia. as much as they loved their playful save the dates, they requested a formal and sophisticated silver and plum invitation suite. the letterpress invitation was adhered to a metallic titanium pocket fold. the rehearsal dinner invitation, rsvp postcard and details card were printed on a metallic cover stock and neatly stacked in the side pocket. the pocket was wrapped with a beautiful two-toned satin ribbon and sealed with a tag with their fabulous date. the package was mailed to guests in silver lined black envelopes which were hand addressed in silver ink by danica from the butler’s pantry.

in addition, we also designed stephanie’s wedding shower invitations.  she had a brunch at valanni and asked that the design reflect the restaurant as well as her wedding day materials. we decided on a long, tall format adorned with geometric pattern and elegant fonts. each was mailed in a metallic silver envelope and sealed with a custom printed mailing label.

we wish these newlyweds the happiest of holidays and an amazing new year as husband and wife in their new home!
