You Name It

So I admit that I'm not the best at naming our invitation lines or the invitations itself. I'm glad that a lot of you still enjoy the designs and don't punish me for my lack of creativity in the naming arena. My latest "dilemma" is naming our new collection of invitations that will be coming out soon. The only thing I can think of is "full color" but they're not all full color. Hmm...I've posted some of the styles here (the ones shown here are full color but they won't all be that way). If you have any suggestions, let me know!

Is it big enough?

Thanks to those of you that alerted us regarding our website mishap. The site has decided that the font we have been using is too small and decided to upgrade itself to a VERY readable size. Unfortunately, I can't agree with the site and think that it is not aesthetically pleasing. Hope our webmaster can win the war against the site soon so we can have our old, great looking site back.

It's Back!

We had taken off our Envelopments invitation during the site and collection redesign back in August but I'm happy to announce that it's back!! Here is the newly redesigned square pocketfold (available in the handmade invitations section). Like the others in the collection, this is customizable with cardstock, ink, ribbon colors, and of course, motifs! We are also offering this in the diy section for those of you that are crafty and have the time to put them together!

Website Update!

We are always looking for ways to improve our website so that shopping will be easier. I'm thrilled to announce that we have added a new feature to our thumbnail product pages. Now, if you hover over the thumbnails of each invitation design, a magnified version will appear so that you don't have to click on each one to see the beautiful designs. A big thank you to our webmaster!

Visually Impaired

So people assume that since I am the Creative Director, that I would be a visual person. I think that it's a fair and valid assumption but the truth is, I'm not! Many times, it's actually really difficult for me to see a full design of an invitation until I see it on paper. So it's perfectly understandable to me when I have customers that email us asking to see a "proof" of the colors they selected for their save their dates before they purchase. Of course, we can't really do that but now what I've thought of is that we will upload more pictures in each product page of new color combinations that our previous customers have used to help those of you who are like me to visualize what your color combination will be like. Don't see your color combo? Just ask us and we can upload one for you. Here I'm showing a pic of a save a date a recent client chose. I love her color combinations and would not have thought of this, but love the final results. Go Shannon!

Bridal Guide March/April 2008

Happy New Year everyone! We are all back on staff and in full swing for the wedding season. We're so excited to have two of our invitations featured in the Bridal Guide issue that is out on newstands right now. One of the invitations being the "Marilyn and David" which is the square invitation designed with a bamboo and is embellished with a moss colored ribbon. The other invitation is a lavendar one that is a variation of the "Diane and Barry". Both of these invitations are available in our flat printed handmade section (letterpress also available). What a great way to start off the new year!!
