color inspiration #4

Since Pinterest is acting up today, it took a bit of digging to find the original source of this image - Mark Lawrence.  All of his work is...

the national stationery show 2011

Though I can't attend the National Stationery Show (NSS) this year, I can live vicariously through the wonderful stationers and denizens of the internet who blog and tweet and vlog (and whatever other new thing we do) the entire show.  Like last year, I'll be updating...

color inspiration #3

It can be tough to track original sources on tumblr.  Here's where I found this image.  Not sure who the photographer is. *photos in this series, unless otherwise noted, have not been taken by anyone at a fine press and can be seen in their original iteration by...

stationer’s secret | number your RSVPs

Tracking RSVPs may be one of the largest challenges of inviting a large guest-list to an event.  Whether it's dealing with guests who take it on themselves to include a +1 or those who refuse to send their response card and, instead, call or email. A particularly...

color inspiration # 2

I love autumn.  Seeing as I've lived in Florida for the last eleven years, I haven't seen it in a while. Thanks to Leslie and her sister for this gorgeous reminder of how beautiful it is. *photos in this series, unless otherwise noted, have not been taken by anyone at...

color inspiration | an introduction

Like many of you, I've recently been taken by Pinterest, a social media answer to the designer's inspiration board.  Besides the excellent social aspects of it, Pinterest is great because it lets users curate multiple boards, each with its own theme.  I've created...

the cost of laser cut acrylic invitations

Lately, I've had a couple inquiries for laser-etched acrylic invitations.  Invariably, my first email in response (with a ballpark cost estimate) is met with sticker shock. On their own, laser-etching and an acrylic substrate both add to the cost of an invitation and...

we’ve been featured | on design and the like

Yep, she's my sister and she's a wonderful budding photographer.  She's studying digital media and you can see some of her photography here.  She runs a little tumblr called on design and the like and interviewed me here. And check out some of her...

it’s ADDY time

I'm humbled to share that a recent project of mine has won a Gold ADDY in the District 4 (Florida) competition and will be considered for a national ADDY award early next month.I submitted the Barrington Hill invitation for this year's competition.  The ADDYS are the...

your advice, please

This is one of my tattoos. It's on my right forearm, just below the elbow. A fountain pen was an obvious choice for me.  It's led to some ribbing from friends, as you can imagine, but represents this point in my life pretty well.  I'm an avid fountain pen user and...

jess & jason | screenprinted one-piece wedding invitation

It's such a joy to work with friends. Jess & Jason are the wonderful couple who you, you may recall, lent their good-looking selves to our Barrington Hill photoshoot.  We gave them new names and fictitious details for our editorial invitations.  This time, it's for...

amanda k | letterpress business cards

Amanda brought us the stunning branding Jane Johnson did for her photography business, Amanda K Photo Art.  We decided to put her gorgeous look on ultra-thick Crane Lettra 220# cotton rag in fluorescent white. We're planning a full stationery package in the works. ...

bookbinding | ECON

We were approached by TM+R, one of the amazing advertising agencies in town, to produce pitch books for one of their clients. Projects like this are particularly fun because of the nuance involved to ensure that every single detail communicates not only the company's...

goings on at a fine press

A few exciting things left the shop today and will be added to the portfolio soon.  Some amazing 2/2 letterpress business cards for Amanda K Photo Art have been counted and packaged and are being shipped today. (here they are on the counting table) And friends Jason...

laser-etched acrylic invitations

We like finding new ways to do things. When asked to create a rustic invitation, we went to an untraditional form - laser-etched acrylic. Of course, there's the traditional way of using acrylic and then there's our way. We went with a faux bois faced cream acrylic...

pinterest | here we go

Right now, I'm trying to figure the logistics of placing an inspiration board in the space that doubles as my studio and our 15 month old's play space. While I'm working on that, I've been thinking about the digital equivalent. Thanks to my lovely sister, I got an...

a beautiful community

Like most of my generation, the idea of community is very important to me. I have an innate need for a sense of belonging and common focus. When I started this business, I felt pretty alone. I knew there were plenty of other stationers and printers out there and had...

Our friends are getting married in a couple months and here's a sneak peak of of their invitations, being printed by Mamas Sauce while I...

clayton’s thank you cards

Last October, had you asked me who my favorite wedding photographers were, you would have gotten some of the answers many people I know give: Amelia Lyon (and that cool West Coast vibe), Jasmine Star (probably the best business woman in wedding photography), and a few...
