Another one for the books! This piece was designed by the groom and she really had her mind set on black foil over black stock with the varnish. I think we were all a little nervous if this was going to work out as well as we all had hoped. However, in the end, the invitation suite really exceed everyones expectations. This is a really great example of just how much a simple black can in-fact be quite a complex beast with a lot of shade variation. We're so grateful to Stephanie for having the guts to stick to her guns and see this black-on-black concept all the way to the end!
Summer is going by so quick! EEK! We have been slammed over the past few months making it difficult to keep the blog as updated as we'd like. Sonny just turned 2. We have a new intern and a new employee. We have recently finished some really amazing print projects. Took a trip to California. New Equipment and new friends. Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend. Here's a pic or two from the Parade that runs just down our street.
Thanks for visiting the letterpress blog. More to come very soon.
"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!
