Watercolored Summer Party Invitation, Menu, Bar card and Place cards

A little departure from all the letterpress projects... and I was able to break out my watercolors for this one!  I hand watercolored all the text and images, then scanned them, arranged them on the page and had them digitally printed on a 110# textured paper to give it that watercolor paper feel. The place cards were hand watercolored with the individual guests names after they were printed- right before everything was packaged and sent off to the client. It was a tight turnaround time, but I think it turned out pretty cute for a mid-summer champagne and lobster dinner party. Included below are a few close-ups of the actual watercolors before they were scanned and printed. So many words were painted! And I totally got hungry working on the menu... invite

Have your initials custom letterpress printed onto coasters!

I am pretty excited about this new shop offering, I was going to wait until this morning, but couldn't resist tweeting about it yesterday- but here is the official announcement! I ordered some custom 3.5" round coasters in a thinner 40pt. weight to use for another project (usually we use the larger standard 4" size, 60pt. thickness like standard bar coasters)- and since I had more than a few left over I started playing around with other ideas we could use them for - and how cute is this?!? Our Antique wood type fits perfectly on this size and I love the lighter more sophisticated weight and somewhat rustic / fun look of these. So so many reasons to order these cute coasters! Perfect for wedding receptions, cocktail parties,  birthday parties, house warming gift, an anniversary party... the list could just go on and on, right? We have a ton of this particular wood type, so as long as it's just 3 letters, we can print it for you! You can find the listing in our etsy shop here. Currently our listing is for quantities of 100, but we can do more or less- just let me know and I can get you a custom quote and listing.
