Love Is All You Need


Nov 20, 2013 Blog 2 Comments

An old friend of mine just got married this month. Life being incredibly busy these days, I missed out on all of her fun, pre-wedding events.

With her as my inspiration, I create a greeting card to send the happy couple. It is a 2-color card created with antique wood type and wood borders, and a few metal decorative elements.

We printed the borders first. (I say we, but Nate is generally in charge of the printing part while I favor the forme creation.)

We also created some reusable drink coasters as our gift to these lovely folks. These are also 2-color and made with antique wood type and decorative metal accents. This photo shows print run #1 complete and color # 2 about to begin.

And the final product:

And YES, we printed a few extras so others can enjoy them too!
