Come away with us to Palm Springs!

Palm Springs has been a popular vacationing spot for celebrities and presidents. Our source of inspiration for this save the date was old Hollywood Glam. The design was made to resemble a film negative with an image of Palm Springs in the background. We silkscreened on a clear plexiglass material and paired it with a gold metallic pochette envelope. Topped it off with a mailing label and vintage stamps of Marilyn Monroe & Frank Sinatra!

Timeline Save the Date

Here's a recent Save the Date highlighting special occasions throughout the couple's relationship. A great way for guests to learn about the couple! The backside was translated in Spanish for the groom's family & friends in Argentina.

Wild, Wild West!

This was so much fun to work on! A truly one of a kind invite for a surprise 70th birthday event down in Texas. We incorporated some of the many things that the guest of honor is very passionate about (i.e. Texas history, pheasant hunting, etc.). The family even came up with a very clever poem which we incorporated on the belly band. Love it!

Traveled across the country part III

Here is a photo of the menu & programs for this couple. The menus were printed as letterpress on the same lavender paper as the invites and the programs were printed as offset on a textured soft white paper. Looking forward to seeing photos of how everything turned out!

Black and White Affair

Here is an invitation suite using the ever so classic, chic black & white color scheme with a touch of Tiffany blue. This was printed as letterpress on smooth, heavy white paper. The bride & groom is getting married in Puerto Rico (how I wish I was a guest!) but instead of going with a tropical feel, they wanted to go with something classic with a touch of Old New York (their hometown). We went with a wrap around mailing label & vintage postage stamps of Puerto Rico on the outer envelope. A map was added to pin point locations of all the recommended accommodations along with the church & hotel where the reception will take place.
For that extra "umph", we colored the edges in the same blue used throughout the invitation suite.

Traveled across the country Part II

Here is the invitation set for this couple. Their save the dates were a huge hit and I'm sure their guests will be just as pleased with the invites! We obviously went with a much more formal look this time around. The inspiration was based off of a vintage bracelet that the couple came across. This particular set was a very complex job incorporating silver foil stamping, duplexing, letterpress and Swarovski crystals.
