One Key to a Memorable Business Card

I'm working with a photographer. She's pretty incredible. Like a lot of creative people, she excels in several areas of focus. One area that I find particularly fascinating is in the world of travel-photo-training. She teaches people how to take better travel photos...

Wedding Inspiration: Luxury Rustic

Trends come and go. Style lasts forever. For a brief period of time, rustic weddings were all the rage. Typewriters and mason jars adorned the reception tables of a thousand suburban couples. And, just like that, it was over. I find that true beauty and style comes...

The power of paper

It's not what you expect. This guy made a table saw blade from a sheet of paper! Can you imagine the papercut from that‽ Yikes!  

The The future of Wedding Calligraphy

We've seen calligraphy change a lot over the last few years. I first encountered what you might call "modern calligraphy" through the work of Mara Zepeda of Neither Snow. It's beautiful. And it's everywhere. And, while it's beautiful and has its place, I'm interested...

How (not) to Start a Relationship With Your Letterpress Printer

Maybe I'm just hanging out with the wrong people. I hope that's all it is. It's a product of youth and inexperience, but I'm seeing it creep into more seasoned designers, too. Creatives who've forgotten the golden rule. [bctt tweet="Value the work of other creatives...

CMYK Letterpress Postcard Save the Dates

There's not much more "vintage" than a 600-year-old technology. One of my favorite things about letterpress printing is its versatility - depending on the design, it can feel very vintage or downright futuristic. The reason letterpress is still around (aside from the...

On Lemons and Lemonade

I can't say with certainty that I've ever had a panic attack. But if I have, it was a Monday morning in mid-February. I had to put the finishing touches on some stationery for a Kristen Weaver styled shoot. I made my way to the print shop (a separate space from my...

Starting Your Stationery Project Right

You know what? I can't for the life of me remember envelope sizes. Sure - A7 inserts are 5x7 and 4bar are 3.5x5 (or is it 3.5x4.875?), but the rest? I've got nothing. Having to try to remember or, worse yet, look these things up at the start of a project must be some...

How Much Do Letterpress Business Cards Cost?

That's a great question! There's plenty of letterpress eye candy out there, but not a ton of answers about how much that eye candy costs. You might even be frustrated by round-about answers from printers who want to see your art before committing to a number. Today,...

How Thick are Letterpress Invitations and Business Card Papers?

I think letterpress papers have three characteristics (aside from color): Thickness, Texture, + Heft Heft is a combination of stiffness and weight. It's an important characteristic, for sure. So is texture - some textures just play nicer with some designs. But, far...

Inside Jokes From the Outside

About a year ago, this video hit my facebook feed pretty hard. Tom Macaluso 2015 Silver Award Video Uncensored from Deeb Studios on Vimeo. Almost everyone I know in the advertising world (admittedly not as many people as I'd like) was sharing it and bumping chests...

What the Queen’s Party Planner Has to Say About Invitations

For some couples, their wedding is the most structured ritual in which they'll ever take part. For others, it might be one of many. And then there's royalty. People for whom every day is ritual. And the Queen's cousin, Lady Elizabeth Anson, is there to create...
