While exhibiting at Indie Wed in Chicago, I met a couple looking to do a vintage postcard save the date featuring Buffalo, NY. The couple provided us a scanned image of the front of the card and the back was designed to provide accommodation information and their wedding details.
The final pieces were addressed using clear avery labels - we simply recommended fonts that would work with the design of the invites. The end result was a great collaboration between myself and the couple and I adore how they turned out.
Interested in doing a similar concept for your Save the Dates? Get in touch and let us know what city you have in mind. We can find post card graphics for you - or if you have your heart set on a particular image as in the above case, let us know!
Sometimes the most unexpected places can be full of the best decor ideas. Both these pieces were in the latest William-Sonoma catalog...
Vintage Easter Card Wreath - I could totally see you doing the same thing with Christmas cards or vintage anniversary or wedding cards.
Bell Jar Asemblages - I've been dying to do something very similar for table centerpieces. So adorable!
Who would have thought?
I'm always on the lookout for unique and different ways to organize escort cards and found something worth sharing today. Studio 1212 creates some super unique pieces. Looking for a solid wood table for eight? Check. How about a one of a kind mailbox? Check. Cremation Urn. Check.
I know it's a little macabre...but bare with me here.
But the thing I wanted to tell you about was this custom display kit / aka (Traveling Perfumer's Organ), intended for perfumers to showcase their essential oils at craft shows and fairs. Designed to fit inside an easy-to-transport wood box, someone looking for a fun twist on a steam punk theme could really have a lot of fun with this piece.
Just get yourself some small brown bottles (old find old ones on ebay) and handwrite guests names using vintage looking labels. For a fun twist, name your tables after different fragrance, like shown above.
