The Greenburgh Wedding Suite

Holidays are always a busy time for the studio but we're still working on new designs getting ready for the 2016 Wedding Season.

This suite, the Greenburgh, has a kiss of rose gold foil on the invite, can you spot it?

The monogram is shown in an engraved font which always letterpress prints beautifully.

The invite is complimented by the liner - shown here with a diagonal stripe that was flat printed in black.

#BackToBusiness: Alberto Alvarez

Its Monday and time to get #BackToBusiness. Today we take a look at business cards we recently designed for Alberto Alvarez of Fine Edge Flyers.

Fine Edge Flyers is a private transportation company that offers flight training and flight services in NY.

Their primary logo color is blue but we couldn't resist putting some shiny silver on the card to glitz it up.

#PaperNerd – Colorplan Paper

It's no secret, we loooove paper. For us, printing is as much about the paper as it is the design. 

White paper is cool, but who can resist a collection of nearly 50 colors - its the paper equivalent of a double rainbow. This is the first post in a new series we've dubbed #PaperNerd.

We've been big fans of Colorplan paper for over 10 years and its why we stock all of the colors. 

The paper has a great texture which is something that compliments letterpress and foil stamping perfectly.

Read more about the stock options, envelopes, printing options, and some recent projects we've done with the paper in the full post.

Harry’s First Birthday Party

Harry's 1st birthday party was a blast! We posted his invitations a few weeks back (Harry's First Birthday Invitations) but haven't had a chance until now to get all the photos together from the party.

We printed some fun things for his party - including a custom photo sleeve to hold polaroids and a foil sticker for the favors (animal shortbreads - YUM!).

But a party isn't about the favors, its about family and friends coming together to celebrate Harrison's 1st Birthday! 

There were a lot of fun details including the flowers, a piñata, games, polaroids, animal cookies, and more.

Custom Foil Ornament Cards

Continuing with our Holiday posts, this custom ornament card we printed is a gorgeous mix of foil and flat printing.

The ornament design uses the same die shape from our standard holiday ornaments but adds a custom foil backing in a bright red cover stock.

Each ornament was tied with a metallic gold ribbon (1/4") that you can use to hang it on a christmas tree, shelf, or fridge.

The holiday ornaments can be customized with a family photo and a special message on the back.

The Elmsford Wedding Suite

Numéro quatre in our Classic Collection!

This suite is printed entirely in gold foil, giving it such a regal look.

Say 'I' if you like monograms! The wedding monogram mixes the bride and groom's initials in a hand drawn script. Calligraphy is such a special touch to include in your invitation.

Just like the Yorktown wedding suite, this invitation uses our large polka dot foil liner to match with the oversized design. 

To find out more about foil stamping options and custom monograms, see the full post for details!

Candy Land Mitzvah Suite

When we set out to work on this Mitzvah invitation for a D.C. family, we had no clue it would turn into such a big project.

The celebration was planned with a Candy Land theme, so bright colors were a must and we ended up layering a lot of different colors + textures to bring the concept to life.

The invitation set included a custom pocket folder, a tiered invite, several inserts (party / stay / rsvp / join), and coordinating envelopes (outer + reply) with liners.

Each pocket also had a three color letterpress seal that continued the candy theme and color motif.

A Patchogue Print Shop

Last week a friend tipped us off to a print shop that was closing around the corner so we dropped by to take a look. 

No matter how many of these 'picks' we go on, it always surprises me to find them in our backyard.

The equipment was last used 5 years ago but everything was in pristine condition.

Among the presses available - a Kelly B, an ATF Little Giant, vintage Baumfolder, Galley Proof Press, and a Linotype. 

The full post has more details about the shop and equipment for sale.

We recently printed these custom notebooks for the Illume Retreat and next week is the big launch day.

These notebooks have a copper foil cover and were saddle stitched with 40 blank pages - perfect to fill with notes and doodles from the retreat.

#ColorInspiration Instagram Series

A while back we started an Instagram hashtag series - #ColorInspiration - and after 3 months, its the perfect time to share some of those with you.

What are we doing? We're mixing our obsession with ink with memorable / inspirational quotes because they're two things we love.

We talk a lot about mixing ink. From our favorite colors, to tips and tricks of the trade.

If you didn't know by now, all of our ink is mixed by hand. It gives us the flexibility to adjust colors to get a perfect match.
