This is How We Do It

OK, so it's not how we do all of it. But here's a sneak peek into the production of a letterpress wedding invitation. Letterpress projects tend to be fairly straight-forward in the shop. Pick the paper, pick the colors, order the supplies and print.When we add more unconventional materials or exotic processes, everything gets a little more complicated - more on that in an upcoming film.But for now, enjoy this little behind the scenes. Watch...

There’s No Such Thing as Thinking Too Big

Last week, one of my favorite stationers called me out of the blue. It was a wonderful surprise.I'd like to tell you that I'm always chatting it up with my friends in the industry. The truth is, aside from a couple close friends (and facebook group discussions), I don't take enough opportunities to talk shop with colleagues.This incredibly talented friend called about a concept she wanted to propose to a client and she knew that...

Moments to pause and reflect.The technology that was to free up our time to do the truly important things has led to more mindless consumption.It's why I think the big rituals are...

A Note About Thank You Notes

Much has been written about the power of thank you notes. And, with some thanks to Jimmy Fallon, the art of gratitude (however tongue-in-cheek it may be) is at least in the peripheral conscious of the world today.However, there's a fairly nefarious trend in "written" correspondence - one that has no place in genuine gratitude. Just say no to "digitally handwritten" cards. [bctt tweet="Nothing says 'I'm lazy' more than printed 'handwriting' in a notecard." username="afinepress"]The way I see...

Show Me Your Bedroom

Want to know the key to having a truly personal wedding? Show me your house. Whether it's a personal tour or simply a few snapshots, showing me your bedroom, living room and kitchen will do more to illuminate your personal style than a thousand pins on your "my style" board.There's so much to glean from your wallpaper (or paint - the difference tells me a lot!)...

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 when people genuinely reflect the culture and heritage they know. The idea of a rustic wedding may have been a trend for some - disingenuous at best - but it's a true...
