joyce and jon are set to wed this summer in beautiful sonoma valley, california. this fun-loving couple has arranged an eventful wedding weekend for family and friends complete with barbeques, pool time, clay shooting and dinner at a hunting club to celebrate! while their big day sounds jam-packed, these two wanted something non-traditional and unfussy for their save the dates. with inspiration stemming from wes anderson’s the grand budapest hotel, this couple’s personalized coaster invitations were created! an illustrator provided this fantastic bear and badger duo to represent them which we letterpressed in black ink and gold metallic foil upon kraft chipboard. a pair of coasters were then placed inside a glassine envelope, sealed with a vintage style airmail sticker and perfectly bundled with patriotic twine. finally, their save the dates were shipped out in light gray, square envelopes with airmail style guest addressing. we are excited to work with this creative couple on their day of pieces!

kara and joel are set to wed this summer at the botanical themed terrain at styers in glen mills, pennsylvania. the couple, who desired save the dates that complimented the natural beauty of their venue, chose a simplistic design for their postcards. we achieved this with a mix of casual fonts and earthy tones digitally printed upon kraft stock. we added twinkling market string lights and trees to capture the feel of the upcoming reception. we look forward to working on kara and joel’s invitations next!

work wednesday: rachel + ben.


rachel and ben’s modern save the dates are the perfect lead up to their october 22nd nuptials. the couple loved the idea of combining hand-drawn graphic and natural patterns. we used a simple palette of black, white, and grey with fun pops of green for their desired fresh feel. their #10 square flap envelopes were digitally addressed to family and friends in black ink. we really enjoyed working with these patterns and can’t wait to continue working with this couple on their shower and wedding invitations!

on 4.30.16, brooke bednoff will become a bat mitzvah amongst a hundred of her closest family and friends. her party, which is set to take place at the sheraton valley forge, will feature an elaborate theme inspired by a few of her favorite things. this fashionista loves all things urban outfitters and brandy melville, so she wanted to incorporate their aesthetic, along with a black and white palette, into her save the date cards. her square shaped save the dates feature a bold, typographic font with pops of turquoise that will be sent out in sleek black envelopes, alluding to the glamorous intricacy of her actual invitations. our favorite feature though, is the scratch off piece that make her save the dates youthful and engaging! mazel tov brooke!

bride and groom to be, alex and noah, are set to wed this may at the enchanting fairmount park horticulture center in philadelphia. their venue, a modern exhibition hall and greenhouse, has proven to be the perfect backdrop for their desired botanical-themed ceremony. following their inspiration, they hoped to translate the loveliness of their theme onto save the date cards while still maintaining a clean design. it was with this that the perfect mixture of font styles printed on soft cotton paper in navy ink was created. guests’ addresses were also printed upon a light gray envelope to tie everything together. we are pleased with the creation of alex and noah’s save the date cards, and wish them a magical wedding day full of love and happiness!

work wednesday: lyndsay + vincent save the date.

lyndsay and vincent will walk down the aisle this june at the rodin museum in philadelphia, pennsylvania. lyndsay was looking for a couture piece to announce her wedding to friends and family. we entrusted artist mandy holt, from myrtle and lloyd, to create a watercolor rendition of the rodin museum and reflection pond. the artwork was printed in full color and the modern, airy black fonts were letterpress. these save the dates were sent out in a matching white cranes envelope with letterpress return address.

work wednesday: ashley + rudy.


ashley and rudy will be saying their i do’s in april at the cathedral basilica of saints peter and paul, followed by a reception at the former steak house, union trust in philadelphia. for their save the date, the couple requested a custom map of philadelphia to get their guests excited about their nuptials in their beloved city. we designed a map of center city which included locations for the wedding ceremony, reception, hotels and other attractions in the area. we softened the graphic feel with muted tones and a watercolor wash background. we are super excited to work with them on their invitations!

work wednesday: kasia + jack.

kasia and jack will say their i do’s in august of 2016 during an intimate ceremony at rock creek cattle company in deer lodge, montana. kasia requested a save the date in the form of a folded card that included a simple line drawn map that illustrated where they both came from (seattle and poland), where they met (philadelphia) and where they would celebrate their wedding (montana). we created two different versions of this vintage map inspired save the date — one in english and the other in polish. these were printed on a soft cotton ivory stock in black ink with a touch of sage green. our favorite part was the finishing touch  — an outline drawing of their bull dog on the back cover! we can’t wait to get started on their wedding invitation suite!
