melkis + tomas / a cherry blossom wedding

It's always a pleasure to print for Paper & Type.

Not only does Victoria create beautifully designed paper goods, but her thoughtful approach to creating a special keepsake for a special day ensures that every detail goes unnoticed. Piece by piece, it's been an honor to see this wedding suite come together.

I had the opportunity to letterpress print the announcement and the RSVP, a beautiful pair in itself with hand-drawn cherry blossoms complementing her signature type design. Usually once you get the main invitation done that's it, right? Not in this case.

The mix of papers, the cherry blossom postage stamp, the custom pattern on the envelope liner, the custom return address stamp and her calligraphy were all reflective touches that highlighted the delicate beauty in the wedding suite.

There'll be one more Paper & Type wedding in the next few days with more hand-drawn florals in the pipeline.

brackish cards + tags

Imagine a brass tags on a machine.
Imagine trying to emulate that with a letterpress printed business card on kraft paper.

This is what Brackish, a Seattle-based furniture company, wanted. Andy knew exactly what he wanted for his first Unique LA show. Laura Horon created the business card design and it did the pressing, cutting and gole cutting for his cards and tags. They'll be a perfect fit for his amazing furniture pieces. We'll be keeping in touch for future pieces for the "haus."
