work wednesday: conklin family holiday card.

this year, alison conklin and her family traveled to italy and while overseas the song rather be by clean bandit became their family anthem. alison felt the words of the song were so special and they truly encompassed how she felt about 2014. after a little collaboration with mandy from myrtle + lloyd, the song lyrics came to life and were printed in gold foil next to the cozy photograph of alison and geoff’s boys, jonas and moses. her olive green envelopes were letterpressed and lined with a swedish knit pattern and whimsically addressed by mandy in navy blue ink.

alison conklin found yet another beautiful quote about love that she wanted to share with her clients. it is from johnny cash describing his meaning of paradise. with a little collaboration with our new friend victoria from moira ink, we turned her beautiful calligraphy into shiny gold foil artwork. we hope alison’s clients love them as much as we do!

this week: ashley + michael.

ashley + michael will be wed this september at the reeds at shelter haven in stone harbor, new jersey. as much as they loved their vintage postcard save the date, they were looking for something a bit more formal for their invitation package. we had plenty of fabulous inspiration for their wedding style thanks to their event planner, sara from confetti & co. each piece of their stacked package was layered with classic black and white nautical stripes. their invitation was a combination of letterpress and gold foil (yes, gold foil!) as was their mad-libs rsvp postcard. we also designed a corresponding welcome dinner invite and folded details card with a custom map that showed various points between stone harbor and avalon. everything was held together with a blush pink belly band and finished with black and white bakers twine and a tag. the stacked package was placed into a kraft glitter-lined envelope and hand addressed by mandy from myrtle and lloyd. we loved everything about this package! we cannot wait to see what sara and the soon-to-be mr. and mrs. have dreamed up for their big day!

who doesn’t love a beautiful saying about love + romance? alison conklin wanted to send a little note of love to all of her clients with their photography files. she asked us to create three different cards using some of her favorite quotes from good will hunting, sleepless in seattle and the wonder years. she hoped it to be something special that her clients would save and display in their homes. these 4 inch square cards were all pressed with gold foil onto pastel aqua, celadon and salmon colored paper stocks. we hope her clients admire these as much as we do!
