Happy Monday everyone! Â We’re starting the last week before the Christmas holiday with a fun and totally cute save the date from Tara at Ephemera Press! Â 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. Â So pretty!
From Tara:Â Alix and Brandon had engagement photos taken by Wisconsin-based photographerÂ Anna Page.Â 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.Â I thought it was so clever!Â 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.Â A tall order!Â We made it work by sticking with a monochromatic look, and lightening the ink so it was nice and subtle.Â The type floats in the lower right corner and balances out the design overall.Â The coupleâ€™s names are highlighted in my calligraphy.Â 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.Â Alix and Brandon also got super-simpleÂ thank you cards.Â I canâ€™t wait to start on the invitations!
