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 boards of pretty food, tattoos, black and white photography, and great architecture, but one of my favorites is my color-inspiration board. I've decided to take the inspiration a step further by creating a...

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 the combination definitely pushes higher than the average invitation. A 20"x26" sheet of Crane's luxuriously thick 220# Lettra paper costs $5.76 directly from the manufacturer (and purchased in quantity).  A similar (though smaller,...

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 have become obsessed with the written word (or correspondence, at least). The dilemma is: what to get on the other arm?  I'd like to make this a...

jess & jason | screenprinted one-piece wedding invitation

It's such a joy to work with friends.

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 brand, but the specific message they want to send to their prospect.This was my first foray in to bookbinding and I'm thrilled with the results. We had tossed around the idea of...
