Fine Foil…

September 29, 2011 in Save the Dates

Foil stamping is certainly one of our favorite printing techniques, and we LOVE when a bride chooses to incorporate it into their wedding stationery. We are thrilled about this save the date created especially for one of our favorite clients Megan.  Matte foil stamping allows you the opportunity to pair a darker colored stock and with a contrasting colored foil as seen above in White.  Drawing from Megan’s wedding colors curry and cool gray, we set the tone for her guests in bold fashion.  Megan’s save the date panel was printed on curry stock with matte white foil, and her accommodations were printed on a bright white stock with flat gray ink.  We incorporated a matching gray button and string tie envelope with a custom address label. This perfect piece hangs above my desk on our inspiration wall, and when it catches my eye, it makes me smile.  So beautiful!

We couldn’t resist blogging about this adorable birthday invitation recently created for a past bride client Marianne and her two beautiful children.  Marianne came to us a few months before the twins first birthday with grand inspiration for a fun and festive celebration in their honor.  Jewel toned balloons were the inspiration behind this cohesive color scheme. Elements from the cake, designed by a dear friend of hers, were the building blocks we used to create this eye-catching invitation set.  So fabulous!

Taking Shape…

die-cut invitation set

A dear friend of ours is getting married next weekend, and we are thrilled to be a part of the festivities! We especially loved working with her as she gave us the creative freedom, with very little specifications, to design a one-of-a-kind invitation set unlike anything we have done before.  Taking into account the bride and groom’s appreciation for understated elegance with a touch of whimsy, incorporating her love of blue and green, and acknowledging the wedding’s location on the Kiawah River, we began brainstorming on invitation ideas to set the stage for what will be a most magnificent wedding.  The end result… fabulous!  Die-cutting this simple invitation gave us the ability to marry both her love of understated elegance with that hint of whimsy she adored.  A sketch of the marsh scene was incorporated on the front panel of the invitation as well as on the reply set.  Both panels were held together by a striped blue and white bellyband which will be repeated on her day of stationery and through linen accents.  More photos to come!  To complete the set, we chose a kraft thick-e-lope to create a home for the invitation, sealed with personal address labels to each guest.  Well done!

Announcing…

September 13, 2011 in We Love Charleston

We are thrilled to debut our new website and logo! This site showcases a large collection of our save the dates and invitation sets, that offers easy viewing. We are particularly giddy about the new lookbook feature in the “day of” section.  We were able to collaborate with our favorite photographers to include event shots of our “day of” stationery and include them for your viewing pleasure.  It is exciting to see simple reception signage come to life amongst the wedding decor. There is also a “celebrations” section worth noting, as it features our baby + child, holiday and other festive occasions worthy of an invitation. We can’t wait to hear what you think of the new site!
