Letterpress Printing

It's no secret...I'm in love with letterpress printing, where ink is pressed into the paper to create a beautiful and luxurious look. Cotton papers look the best, in my opinion. Here are some of my favorite invitations that I've designed. Enjoy!

Fonts, Fonts and Fonts...oh my!

So I'm one of those people who notices fonts...on storefronts, name it. I even buy bottles of wine that I think have a "pretty" label. I have at least 900 fonts on my computer. You get the picture...I'm a big nerd when it comes to fonts. I'm excited to announce three new fonts that I just purchased. I can't wait to use them!

Holly's "Hill Country" Staggered Invitation

I designed this invitation for Holly who is getting married at her parent's ranch in the Hill Country. She wanted her invitation to have nature elements incorporated since that embodies where she is getting married. To keep all of the stair-step cards (monogram, invitation, RSVP and directions) together, I attached them with a decorative brad. The RSVP postcard is set up to be torn off and put in the mail by the guest.
