Janis rules. We have done a ton of work for her this year. Letterpress Save-the-Dates, a complete invite suite, and thank you cards. What makes working with Janis and Johannes so fun? They have a really great aesthetic. Note the two bees fluttering off on the right with the great big flower on the left which grounds the whole invitation flawlessly. Their invite text is the next layer; centered, clean, and meticulously organized. Love it. Thanks for visiting the letterpress blog. More posts coming very soon!
Dick and Jane Letterpress is extremely proud to announce our recent feature in the Fall/Winter 2009 issue of Minnesota Bride Magazine. We were featured in a small article titled "Pretty Prints - Get a Little Whimsical With Your Invites, Embracing Bright Colors and Thematic Graphics". Featured was a letterpress wedding invitation including an Indonesian flower pattern combined with a script and red poppy motif. This particular order was created as a custom design for a Canadian client in the past season. Please note the photos below.

"A little birdie told me." Printed in a mint green on Lettra Fluorescent White.
Maybe it's just me but it seems like everyone is having babies these days? We at Dick and Jane Letterpress have always done a majority of letterpress wedding invitation printing but with the abundance of beautiful bouncing babies, our services were requested to design and print a birth announcement. The J's from New Mexico had been looking around a bit and wanted something soft, super cute, witty, and sweet. We had a few email and phone conversations about their project and went back and forth on a few variations based on the couples suggestions. In the end, we wound up settling on a very neat-o little design that came out of left field. How we got from giraffe's, flowers and initial caps to this design, I'll never figure out. We think the design turned out great and hope your enjoy.
Be sure to keep an eye out for "A little birdie told me" in our announcement collections later this summer!
