work wednesday: colleen + daniel.




colleen and daniel celebrated their nuptials back in june at saint rita of cascia church with an elegant reception at the bellevue in center city, philadelphia. colleen requested a formal design that coordinated with the look of her invitation suite. we achieved this by printing the menu and escort cards printed on a white metallic stock to give them a little shimmer. the guest names were beautifully hand-written in a deep plum ink on the silver escort card envelopes by joe giampaolo. their programs were large, double-sided, letterpress printed on double-thick cover stock. we hope colleen and daniel’s wedding was everything they wanted it to be and more!

work wednesday: vanessa + alexander.

vanessa and alexander were married in june at glen foerd on the delaware, a waterfront estate in philadelphia. this couple loved their classic style and asked that we create an invitation package that was traditional but allowed their personalities to shine through. vanessa loved polka dots, so of course we found a way to include those! their stacked suite included a letterpress invitation with a fabulous poppy red and subtle dot pattern. their rsvp card was a postcard style complete with a vintage photo of the riverfront. we also had fun designing a large custom map for their details card. the package was wrapped with a gorgeous silk teal ribbon and finished with a custom die cut tag with their wedding date. these special deliveries arrived to guests in ivory envelopes hand addressed in crisp black ink by danica from the butler’s pantry. we wish these newlyweds a lifetime of happiness!

 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!

work wednesday: chuck + steve.

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.
