I am pretty sure the people I work with are magicians. They are so full of creativity and talent…I am hoping that this talent is contagious. About a month ago I mentioned to the Christy, the Boss Lady/Designer/Magician/Dear Friend that I was in need of some fresh stationery. For obvious reasons I am obsessed with letterpress printed stationery and try to write a handwritten note every chance that I get.
After some contemplation I decided I wanted something a bit different so I asked her if she could place my name somewhere at an angle. In her typical magical style Christy waved a wand and “poof” I had 9 options to choose from. She showed me different fonts that worked perfectly for the this layout and my name. Honestly I adored them all, but it was this bohemian font that stole my heart.
Waiting patiently is not my forte, but letterpress printed stationery is a process worth waiting for. So after the design was approved I waited, not patiently, but I waited.
After the polymer plates were created the project fell into the hands of Lauren, the Production Queen/Artist Extraordinaire/Press Whisperer. Lauren brought the design to life with a deep impression of silver ink. My name has never looked so pretty.
Every time I start writing on one of these cards I can’t help but smile. I use them to write notes to our brides, customers and my friends and family. They are a piece of art, but more importantly to me they were created with passion and great love. I still have hope that an ounce of Lauren & Christy’s talent will rub off on me one day, but until then I will enjoy their infectious love for letterpress.
