Happy Monday everyone! We’re starting the last week before the Christmas holiday with a fun and totally cute save the date from Tara at Ephemera Press! Alix and Brandon chose to incorporate faux-photo booth strips into their save the date, paired with a gray letterpress card with Tara’s illustrations and calligraphy. So pretty!
From Tara: Alix and Brandon had engagement photos taken by Wisconsin-based photographer Anna Page. They had this fun idea to fake some old-fashioned photo booth strips, and crop things to that Alix was walking into the frame with Brandon. I thought it was so clever! We adhered the photos with washi tape, which was a perfect choice since Alix is half Japanese, and adores the Japanese aesthetic.
Alix asked me to design a letterpress card for these photos that was clean and organic, yet incorporated the chrysanthemums and succulents that will be at her reception next August. A tall order! We made it work by sticking with a monochromatic look, and lightening the ink so it was nice and subtle. The type floats in the lower right corner and balances out the design overall. The couple’s names are highlighted in my calligraphy. I think it looks particularly good in all lower-case like this.
Finishing touches were coordinating gray envelopes, a matching letterpress wrap-around return address label, and hand-lettered guest addresses in white ink. Alix and Brandon also got super-simple thank you cards. I can’t wait to start on the invitations!
