Lauren’s Modern Black and White Moving Announcements

Designer Lauren Chism and her husband moved into a new home over the summer – and today she’s sharing her moving announcements with us! I share Lauren’s tendency to take a maximalist approach to personal stationery projects, so I’m loving the modern, pared down approach to her moving announcements. Just beautiful calligraphy, a couple of arrow motifs, and a modern graphic backing pattern – all in simple black and white. Perfect!

From LaurenMy husband and I moved into a new home this summer and amongst all the excitement of furniture purchases and decorating, I didn’t forget that I had a fun excuse to send out some paper: moving announcements! When it comes to designing my own stationery, I tend to want to try new printing techniques and papers, which results in me going completely over the top. This time, I thought I’d keep it simple and – most importantly – affordable with some small, flat printed cards. Gotta save the big bucks for all that new furniture!

The design started with the calligraphy talents of Lauren Essl of Blue Eye Brown Eye, who penned our new address for us to use. I love the idea of calligraphy for moving announcements. I was able to use the calligraphy on the cards and make a return address stamp with it, which made sending everything out even easier. Add in a fun arrow motif and kraft envelopes and they turned out to be just fun way to share our new address with family and friends.

Not one to leave off any details in my stationery, I finished the kraft envelopes off with fun washi tape and Johnny Cash stamps, which might have been my favorite part of all!
