This post brought you to by the number three

Perfect for your favorite three-year-old, a third anniversary or if it’s your lucky number, these cards exhibit my favorite numeral design from my wedding table numbers. Get ’em here while the gettin’s good…this first printing was limited to—you guessed it—three cards.

Fireworks wedding invitations

I just finished up these gorgeous invitations for a couple who are renewing their vows on July 3rd. While they wanted to aknowledge the proximity of the holiday, they didn’t want their invitations to be kitchy or overly patriotic. I came up with a design that was abstract yet recognizable while being fun, modern and elegant. Printed with a deep impression and silver ink on a rich red textured paper, they are absolutely stunning!

New Year, New Collection

At long last, I’m happy to show you what I’ve been totally absorbed with the last couple of weeks: my first stationery collection of 2009! Below are just a few of the new designs (check out my etsy shop for the rest — and everything is available in any color!) and the press release I sent out with it.

Hot on the tails of its popular holiday line, 622 press has just released its first stationery collection of 2009. Showcasing the signature luxury for which 622 press is known, the collection includes influences from contemporary designer fashion, 17th- century culture and modern home décor, reflected in metallic inks, rich plum damask and feather motifs.

Madison, Wisconsin-based graphic designer Kristin Joiner successfully created and executed her first piece on her antique 1882 Pearl Old Style letterpress in June of 2008 and has been printing and artfully experimenting ever since. Each of the five new core designs is manifested in a variety of colorways and arrangements, and all offer the elegant handcrafted style of a small boutique press.

Hailed as “distinctive and unique . . . they are not merely paper, but also a piece of art for the mantle,” by Megan Larson of the Isthmus Daily Page, 622 press goods make the perfect addition to one’s inventory, whether for penning a personal note or for making a statement on an otherwise blasé wall.

622 press utilizes only the finest materials including hand-mixed oil-based inks, 100% recycled cotton letterpress paper and other quality art papers and creates every piece using earth-friendly processes.
