A Very Fairy Sweet Sixteen!!! February 23 2015

No matter what the celebration is, the invitation will be an introduction to the imagination of the host. When we sat down with Jessica, we were shocked at how specific and creative her vision was. Every element of design was exactly how she imagined it - fairy inspired magical garden with flowers and vines. This fairy tale event did not leave anything out. The unique liner, 3 diamonds and 2 layer response card came together to become one of our most creative invitations.

This detail of the invitation shows the 3 diamonds that were placed on the invite. In this image you can see that the invitation was laid out with 3 layer metallic layers and many colors that were all the same tone. Using magenta to highlight the event and the birthday girl's name. The event information was colored purple to blend in with its surroundings. Below is another detail image.

Each diamond is individually hand glued. This entire event used over 200 diamonds.

Above is the 2 layer response card with a pink envelope. Mimicking the invitation with the ornate gate frame. Digho provides the addressing service which means all envelopes are addressed to the guest and response envelopes have the receiver address. This allows all the fronts to be the same, creating a unified look.

To keep the design consistent, the thank you card has some of the art elements.

A Hint of Pink Peeking Out of Our Custom Invitation Sleeve.... February 02 2015

This couple was a pleasure to work with... They gave use their vision and loved everything we could do for them. The idea of a custom sleeve that would have the invitation peek through was a favorite for both the bride and groom the minute we sat down. The love of pink and gray allowed us to capture both individuals with a beautiful elegance. The design ideas started with a modern monogram and then the addition of ornate designs gave the invitation an element to highlight the information. Above you can see the invitation outside and inside the sleeve. Behind the sleeve is the envelope. Along with the invitation, the sleeve held the hotel information, direction card and the response card.

The simple elegant design was then used to create a complete package as the pieces created their entire wedding brand.  Above you can see the seating card design, stickers for champagne bottle and cookie box favors,  a thank you poster that was on display throughout the venue and the front and inside of the ceremony program. 

It is always an exciting journey with a bride and groom when they come to us for advice and creative ideas.  Together we shape a look and then create an array of printed pieces that speak to them as well as their vision of their big day.  The result is always so satisfying for us and gives the couple a sense of pride of all the components presented.

Let’s have a wedding splash! September 25 2014

In the middle of the summer heat, there is nothing like a wedding celebration on the beach!! Hearing the waves crash while they say, “I do.” Then watching the sunset during cocktail hour and dancing the night away!!

This invitation was for a fishing captain and his “beach lover” bride. They wanted lots of sea art and fun colors (dark blue, aqua blue, light blue, purple and silver.)
When we walked away from our first meeting with them, we had no idea how all this was going to work together. But once we started designing, we “became” them and saw their vision as they wanted it to be. Having a multicolor design can be refreshing for an invitation. Like the sea, many things are happing but they are all part of one family. This wedding invitation came together in just that way. We added color in just the right elements, giving it a hint of excitement.
The invitation was a horizontal, rectangular two fold pocket. On the front is a double-layer tag with a ribbon that wraps around the entire pocket and finishes inside. Once opened the invitation sits on a light purple layer to highlight the event.
A direction card, reception card, and response card all held the invitation style, while the envelopes were a beautiful aqua blue. 
Maybe a little loud for some but just right for them!
Here are a couple other beach invitations from our portfolio.
