This past Saturday I had the pleasure of attending (as a bridesmaid) the wedding of this beautiful couple:
Mary (the bride) just happens to be my cousin- and these are the invites we came up with for their special day:

This double sided rsvp postcard was printed on a coaster stock to give it a bit of extra weight for mailing:

My sister Maureen makes up half of the dynamic duo Domestic Construction, who were responsible for all of the decorations. Here’s a little peak of some of them going up (that ladder was HIGH!):
Every bit of this wedding was thought out and personalized by a family member or friend of the bride and groom. We had the chance to spend a week together getting everything ready; how rare that is in our adult lives, how perfect it made this day.
I’ll spare you my poorly lit shots (or those borrowed from Facebook); stay tuned for a family affair: part decor (and photos from the professionals)!
I just don’t know if there is anything better than this banjo playing beaver. Anything.
I believe in polymer and I clap and yell for it everyday. I am much better with a pen and paper (and Illustrator) than I am with a knife. I tend to cut myself a lot. Whatever works…
Richard came to me a couple of weeks ago with a fun project. He had recently moved into a new home (so big and beautiful that it has its own name: Woodcrest) and found these old magnesium plates in the basement. The plates included illustrations of the house itself, a lamp post, and a hand drawn map of the area surrounding the property. We were excited to test them out, so I printed a few coasters for him to take home.
The magnesium has certainly seen better days… All the plates are a bit scratched up, and show signs of warping (wood and metal). I did a few test prints which will be scanned and fixed up in Illustrator (scratches and dents and nails removed!) and then re-made into photopolymer plates to ensure the best printing possible. The images are going to be made into stationery for the Woodcrest home.
