When Work and Life Meet

March 28, 2008

When you work in the wedding industry, it is easy to get caught up in all of the amazing possibilities when it comes to your own wedding. I have been no exception while planning my September wedding! I am surrounded by so much amazing design and such beautiful paper all day long that I just couldn’t avoid the temptation and allure when it came to my save the dates.

Designing for a client is so different than designing for yourself; a client will help to guide you throughout the process, telling you what they like, what they don’t like, and what they’re envisioning. When you’re designing for yourself, sometimes it’s hard to figure out where exactly to begin because there is no one guiding you except, well, you!

It took some time, but I finally figured out a design that I was really happy with, and I set to work printing and assembling everything over a period of two weeks. It’s been great to hear positive feedback from our wedding guests since these have gone out in the mail!

I printed the CDs using my fabulous Print Gocco, and they came out beautifully! I’m not a Gocco master yet, but I think they’re pretty good for only my second time Gocco-ing. Besides, the result is much better than a sticker label 🙂

Next hurdle: invitations!

We’re excited and flattered to announce our placement on Style Me Pretty’s Little Black Book, the Philadelphia edition. If you’ve read our recent posts, you might have guessed that we love the chance to collaborate with our creative friends in the wedding and design business. Having been early fans of the Abby Jean wedding line (we carry her letterpress invitation album in our studio) we were thrilled when Abby launched Style Me Pretty, and we’re always delighted when our work makes an appearance.
Thanks again Abby, we’re looking forward to meeting new friends through the Little Black Book!
