January Card Club

I had a few new subscribers join the club in December, so the January bundle was really fun to put together! I chose bright tones to cheer up a winter’s day, with some exclusive designs (like the relax cards) and limited quantities (shop the last of the polka dots here—they won’t be reprinted!).

Save the Date Season

It’s that time of year, you guys. The days are getting shorter, there’s a chill in the air, and couples getting married next year are hustling to get their save the dates in the mail before holiday cards start rolling in!

Save the date coasters are as popular as ever this year, and here are two of my favorites! I love that both Melissa and Anna had a clear idea of their design direction and kept it clean with minimal text. melissa_std_8433

I also designed some new watercolor save the dates featuring a photo of the happy couple! I’ll wait to reveal the design they chose until their friends and family have received them in the mail, but these two alternate designs are both available in the shop!

Well friends, we’re at the end of my month of weddings and I’ve saved the best for last!

burgundy_floral_7216Remember Krista and Chris’ gorgeous letterpress wedding invitations from earlier this year? After the big day, I reached out to their photographer, Sara Smile about sharing a few of the gorgeous photos (which she did, so stay tuned!).

She also mentioned a romantic Brothers Grimm-themed fairy tale styled wedding photo shoot she was working on. After checking out her inspiration board, I offered to design stationery for the shoot—and my new favorite invitations were born!

I started by breaking out the watercolors to paint deep burgundy peonies, mauve anemones and snapdragons, and the palest blush poppies, along with sticks and leaves to fill out the arrangements. They might be my favorite illustrations I’ve created so far!

I’ve been wanting to create a looser typography design and I thought this would be the perfect opportunity! I love this new calligraphic typeface, it’s almost as beautiful as Kelsey Malie’s beautiful envelope calligraphy!

Speaking of envelopes, did you spot these custom-lined envelopes? This is the first time I’ve ordered them and they are AMAZING! They’ll be another a la carte option in my shop, but in the mean time feel free to get in touch for custom envelopes!

Order these invites in my etsy shop and stay tuned for the stunning photos from Sara’s shoot!

New & Improved Print Shop

closed

I’m getting packed up for a few weeks of travel so I thought I’d make it official: 622 press will be semi-closed for most of September!

I say semi-closed because while no cards, hoops or flowers will ship until I return on the 26, some custom pieces, wedding invites (more on that to come!) and of course digital artwork will still be available.

Great timing—as I’ve just given the Digital Prints section of the shop a refresh! You may remember my post about offering archival, museum quality prints from a few months ago. I was happy to check adding those prints off my list before heading out on vacation, but when I revisited them recently, I decided it wasn’t the best way to offer them.

So now that they’re easier to order, I’ve also added new designs—available as both a digital download and art prints! These are some of my favorite thus far—go check them out by clicking on the photo! And stay watch this space while I’m away—I have tons of fun reveals planned for September!
