Real Weddings: Hayley and Jay’s Big Day

Real Weddings: Hayley and Jay’s Big Day

We had the joy of working with Hayley on all of her wedding stationery, including save the dates, wedding invitations, day-of stationery and thank you notes. It was so much fun to help bring her vision to life!

Hayley started with a lovely design from Bella Figura and we worked with her to customize every detail. Her wedding invitation glows with the combination of blush and champagne foil text. The watercolor design filling the invitation fits perfectly for their wedding, and with the foil calligraphy text, it sets the stage for the occasion. We love the foil embellishments seen throughout this set. Floral motifs and pink letterpress text, featured on the information cards, are a nice addition to the overall presentation.

Excellent photography with gold foil lettering brings to life this Save the Date. It’s a simple and elegant design that captures the moment and sets the tone for what’s to come with their invitation suite. We are so happy we had the opportunity to work with this lovely couple. Congratulations on your special day, Hayley and Jay!

Below is a photo of the original invitation that sparked the creative customization.

Edge painting is the perfect way to dress up an invitation, notecard, or business card. It has the greatest impact when used on thicker papers and in bright, bold colors. Use a color from the existing card or invitation design or utilize this opportunity to add a new accent. Come by our shop to see our current retail selection of edge painted products. Even better, customize unique, personal stationery or wedding invitations and leave a lasting impression on your viewers. Create something memorable with these special details.

Spring is in the Air

Spring is in the Air

The first day of Spring is quickly approaching, yeah! Living in Southern California the change from winter to spring isn’t as noticeably different as it is on the East Coast. I spent last Spring in Boston and loved it. What stood out most were the colors and flowers, everywhere I looked there were tulips, tulips and more tulips.

With the arrival of Spring will come new Spring windows at the shop! I’m excited to spruce things up and add some new colors to our storefront. I have been working on a pinterest board for inspiration, here are some of my picks.
