How adorable are these illustrated programs from Joanna Goddard’s wedding? The artwork was done by the talented Anna Bond, and features a quote from one of our favorite books, The History of Love by Nicole Krauss.
Without a doubt, one of the best desk accessories I have is a custom made address embosser. I originally purchased it for stamping my return address on my wedding invitations, and ever since it has left a beautiful mark and lasting impression on any correspondence I send.
I actually have two embossers in my arsenal - one rectangular and the other is round. Since we recently moved into a new apartment, it has now come time to update my plates.
How adorable are these felt mailing envelopes by Keiko of Small Adventure? We love how you can use them as gift wrap – they even come with “to” and “from” labels that are tucked into plastic sleeves on the front. With extra labels included, it’s the gift that keeps on giving! Genius!
We recently designed a program for one of our fabulous retailers, Watermark Stationery, in Minnesota. They are always so much fun to work with and this project was no exception. Using the Flagel design from our Luxe album as the inspiration we created this folded 2 sided program. The program was flat printed on 100% cotton paper (tree free). Loving the results!
When we first started printing custom letterpress coasters, we couldn’t stop - they are just so much fun! As it turns out, they are still among our favorite things to print. There is truly no better way to add a unique personalized touch to your wedding than with lovely letterpress coasters. We love when couples incorporate a special monogram or recipes for signature cocktails, but they’re equally as fun when printed with a special motif that a couple is incorporating throughout their event. If you’re looking for that perfect way to infuse your event with personal flair, letterpress coasters are always a homerun!
Tracy from The Buttercream Studio just sent us this photo of a cute wedding cake she created based on our Chandelier wedding invitation by EIEIO. It reminded us that wedding invitations and stationery can be great source of inspiration for cakes - sometimes the design motifs on the invitation translate really well into 3-D and can help carry a consistent style through the details of wedding day.
There are quite a few Etsy exclusive items that just launched over at our etsy shoppe . Here are some of my favorites:
The wedding is going to be a formal and elegant affair with a reception in a Victorian era casino. Inspired by the casino, the bride knew exactly what she wanted - peonies with a vintage flourish. Pink and green are the wedding colors and complement the imagery so well. I must say I love the reception card. If I were a recipient, I would hang this up…right next to the invitation of course!
You probably already know that around here, printing gorgeous letterpress invitations makes us absolutely giddy. With that said, when Smock had the opportunity to print the letterpress invitations, escort cards and menus for the recent Modern Bride Trendsetters Awards Dinner, it was a sincere honor and so much fun! Printing beautiful things is what makes us excited about what we do everyday, but being able to print the invitations for such a fabulous event, honoring amazing wedding professionals we truly admire, was especially exciting.
Take a look at this amazing letter press invitation suite by Nessa Sander of Cardgirl. The bride and groom ordered their invitations, reply cards, itinerary with map on the reverse side, welcome cards for their welcome packages, escort cards and even personalized notecards for their thank yous - all in warm shades of brown and sepia. The “outdoorsy” look is exemplified through not only the custom invitation design, but also the shimmery brown envelopes and calligraphy in two different shades.
