On Sunday, December 9, we are participating in the SFMade Holiday Gift Fair in San Francisco. The fair will be held at Herbst Pavillion in Fort Mason from 10-6 and it's FREE! Over 75 local vandors with homemade SF goodies (think: wine, ceremics, clothing, art, chocolate and olive oil) will be there so you can get all your holiday shopping done guilt-free (by supporting local shops!) and in one day. We will have all of our Holiday Cards on sale, or you can just stop by to chat about custom orders or wedding invitations (we’ll bring physical samples for those who want to see) – anything paper! You don’t need to RSVP, but if you want to share and invite friends on Facebook, here is the event’s FB page: https://www.facebook.com/events/383638498387676/

Today’s the big day for Laura and Greg, custom clients from San Francisco who hired us to create their Rustic Redwood Wedding Stationery. Their wedding sounds like a gorgeous, chillaxing affair with a romantic ceremony under the redwood trees in Guerneville, Calforinia – just off the Russian River. We had a lot of fun designing a tree-themed suite that combined a campy feel with a tone of formality. We utilized natural materials including real tree branch buttons, hand-dyed hemp and bark-embossed recycled paper for their Weekend Event Maplet. You can see more photos of their suite in our Custom gallery or on Facebook.
Congratulations Laura and Greg – may your happiness last longer than the redwoods are tall!
Just a few words and some eye candy to share with you this happy Friday as we unveil one of our recent Custom wedding invitation suites. Mel & Matt are two Brooklyn–>San Francisco foodies who also love music, the great outdoors and having an epic time with all their friends. We hand sketeched the “produce tree” and then filled in the lines with a watercolor effect. The typography features a contemporary calligraphy font set with a clean sans serif. Everything was flat printed on 100% cotton Crane Lettra and recycled Arturot and Dutch Felt papers. The images capture highlights from their upcoming wedding weekend events, including a ceremony in the Shakespeare Garden, reception at the Landmarks Art & Garden Center and a food truck welcome party in Golden Gate Park!
In the coming months I hope to share photos from the event, as well as some Day-Of collateral, but for now, enjoy perusing their invites.
You can see more photos of this and other work in our Custom portfolio.
I love Daylight Savings time – the extra hour is something I look forward to every fall (but dread losing in the spring!) Today I used my extra time to finally photograph my wedding stationery suite. I am so excited to share all the details, but for now, here's a preview image of the invitation and some of the day-of collateral (program, escort cards, menus, favor and the likes). Rocky and I were/still are thrilled with how everything came together! And he helped a ton! I will post about the details in the coming weeks.
Anyone going to / gone to any good parties this year? Rocky and I plan to walk Gryffin around our neighborhood tonight in his skeleton t-shirt from Old Navy. There are tons of little tick-or-treaters in our neighborhood! And San Francisco costumes are so funny – last year we saw different kids dressed up as a box of granola, Gene Simmons and solar energy. This morning on my bus to work, I sat next to a commuter dressed as the Magritte painting, The Son of Man – frame and everything!
