it’s been a fantastic + very busy holiday season for us over here! just wanted to share a few we designed + hand lettered for petite lemon for shutterfly. they are still available for purchase and even better. . . they are 50% off!
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!

kim and blake wed last may at the exotic olowalu plantation house in lahaina, hawaii. kim, creator of eat/sleep/wear (a fashion blog), and her fiancé desired a modern, clean design that resembled their beautiful ceremony space. with a dark green color scheme, and appropriated pops of hawaiian yellow, their invitations were stacked and include subtle touches of palm and pineapples. together the cards were tied off with natural white jute twine and a kraft tag featuring a gold foil pineapple. delivered in crisp white envelopes, their guests received hand addressed gold metallic ink by mandy from myrtle & lloyd. we couldn’t be happier with the completion of this project, and are pleased to find our work, along with snippets of their ceremony, featured in the most recent issue of brides magazine! check out the article here!
in addition to their wedding stationery, we also designed a corresponding holiday card for the newlyweds. these cards, of 5×7 size, featured a stunning black and white photo overlaid by the prettiest hawaiian christmas greeting. along with a clean, thin, gold foil font, their holiday cards were mailed in gold envelopes with coordinating wrap mailing labels.
this project has been one of our favorites thus far, and we are thrilled that kim and one of our dearest photographer friends, alison conklin, are teaming up with brides to offer an AMAZING giveaway. enter for a chance to win a free engagement session with alison here!
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.
