Our 2012 Holiday Card

I can’t believe it is almost the end of October and the holidays are just around the corner! We have been busy little elves at the shop placing orders, planning window and in-store displays and brainstorming for our holiday card. Each year we design something special to send to our families, close friends and wedding and stationery vendors as a way to say thank you for another year of support and encouragement. We are hard at work on this year’s card so I thought I’d take a minute to share what we did last year.

As a team we decided we wanted to create something that could be used (rather than just hung on the fridge) and could bring our recipients joy throughout the season and since our customers always love the paper flower wreaths we make and hang in the store, we thought this would be the perfect “gift”. So we set out to make several dozen green paper wreaths and of course letterpress printed a card to go with it. They were mailed in cardboard boxes with custom shipping labels and fun washi tape accents!

Enjoy these last few weeks of quiet before things get nutty! We hope to see you around the shop soon.

Lindsay & Evan’s Ethereal Camp Invitations

We are so excited to see Lindsay & Evan’s wedding featured on June Bug Weddings today! We had such a blast working with these guys last summer for their August nuptials. Kate Martin of Beautiful Days introduced us to the New York couple and Samantha and I immediately fell in love with the dreamy, ethereal wedding they were planning at Camp Takajo in Naples, Maine. Lindsay’s father owns the camp and Evan was a camper as a child. They didn’t know each other way back when but Lindsay’s dad introduced them as adults and from the beginning it was meant to be. It was a no brainer that they would be married under the pine trees in front of their closest friends and family at the camp they both call home.

For the invitation design, we used playful fonts and justified type to infuse playfulness and a neutral, dreamy color palette to balance it all out. Fun wording for the events and reply cards gave nod to the couple’s fun-loving personalities. All the cards were housed in a folio tied with twine and mailed in a metallic envelope lined with a gorgeous, soft-shimmer birch-tree liner. The effect was a charming bundle that evoked a sweet, ethereal vibe while still conveying the fun, casual atmosphere of summer camp.

For the wedding day, we had the pleasure of crafting some coordinating paper details that included a simple, lovely program and one of the more romantic pieces we’ve ever done. Both Lindsay & Evan wrote a list of reasons/things they love about one another along with a sincere note of thanks to their guests; the result was a love letter, of sorts, to each other and to everyone who has supported them along the way. We were all a little misty-eyed after reading this sweet piece.

It was such a blast working with such kind and considerate clients and their team of stellar vendors. Happy almost-one-year, Lindsay & Evan! Here’s to many, many more 🙂
