A+ (Adam + Amy’s invite booklet)

LOVE these wedding invite/booklet designed by Craig Duffney and letter pressed by Studio on Fire. The way both Amy and Adam had their own capital designed and used throughout (on their own and together as headers and footers) is just a really lovely touch. Also, I wish I saw this more often. I’m a story-teller … Continue reading

Ah yes, we’re talking about my continued faith in Studio On Fire… Another fine piece of press work off Studio On Fire‘s blog Beast Pieces. This piece was created for Many Folds Farm, the new food adventure of Rebecca and Ross Williams (check out their blog on passion for food and land here.) Unlike many … Continue reading

Hey guys you know how I’m always like Studio On Fire this, Studio On Fire that, by the way Studio On Fire, Studio On Fire, Studio On Fire. Well, they’ve made a 2010 calendar with some amazing contributors, and, as always, impeccable letterpress printing. If you like, you can get one right here. Contributors: Jan/Jul_ … Continue reading

I’m feeling pretty positive about 2010 lately. No reason why. More, why not? On that note: Every year a label is created by a different designer in Siquis‘ creative department as a self-promotional holiday gift. Loving this years by Greg Bennett, which was designed as a play on “is the glass half empty or half … Continue reading

this plus that.

If you haven’t figured it out yet, I’ve started thinking about the print aspect of my sister’s wedding. In order to keep costs down it’s best to print everything at once. Meaning within the next month or so we should try to have most of the printed pieces ready to go… My sister’s tastes are … Continue reading

Overprinting (which you may recall from my last post) creates additional dimension and color in the flower and vine motif. The invites colors were mixed to match existing envelopes: French Paper’s Poptone in orange fizz and … Continue reading

While over at Studio on Fire‘s blog, Beast Pieces, I also saw this Wedding invite: The design and type face were created by the groom, Emory Allen, a designer and illustrator. He said: My fiance and I aren’t traditional people and aren’t having a traditional wedding-so why have traditional invites? I created a typeface that … Continue reading


I saw this on Priya‘s site the other day, and can’t seem to get it out of my head. It’s just so lovely. I mean look at that type, with the flourishes? That’s custom lettering, people. The wood grain photography is also amazing, and the letterpress is divine (another amazing example of the work done … Continue reading


“You can not prevent the birds of sadness from passing over your head, but you can prevent their making a nest in your hair” Love this piece from Studio on Fire. The type is beautiful. The letterpress is lovely, and the design is just perfect.


It’s actually really frustrating in design when someone creates your idea before you do. I had half a mind to scan in my sketches for a poster I wanted to letterpress… but hey, I never got around to it, it’s probably not like no one in the world ever thought of this, mine had different … Continue reading
