About Sarah @ Parrott Design Studio

Hello! I hope you had a nice weekend. The weather was just lovely here & continues to be. I recently had the opportunity to once again work with artist & illustrator Jen of Swallowfield. I was quite honored to be asked because these save the dates are for her brother, Sam and his fiance, Laura!

Laura and Sam are getting married under a beautiful live oak tree next Spring, so Jen drew a live oak. Using her illustration to frame the design, I set the text using two simple and elegant typefaces.

The save the dates were gocco screenprinted on 100% cotton paper in pearl white using a springy green, peach, and warm gray inks paired with coordinating gray envelopes. The live oak printed beautifully! Large, solid areas on soft, textured paper do not always work to the gocco printers advantage, but with experience, a few tricks of the trade, and a lot of patience, the desired result can be reached!
