Rachel & Will’s Oahu Wedding Featured in The Knot!

As invitation designers, we don’t always get to see how all the pieces of the wedding come together, so we were super excited to learn that Rachel and Will’s beautiful wedding at Dillingham Ranch on Oahu was going to be featured in Fall/Winter issue of The Knot California. We picked up our copy of the magazine today and both the wedding and the feature look more beautiful than we could have hoped.

Rachel and Will’s invitations are a great example of restrained elegance. Letterpress printed in one color, they combine classic typography with a modern map. We recommended using vintage postage stamps on the envelopes, and the vintage Hawaii-themed stamps from Treasure Fox helped round out the invitation suite beautifully.

Signature Collection: San Francisco Skyline Invitations

In addition to our fully custom designed wedding invitation suites, we offer clients the option of personalizing a design from our signature line for their wedding invitations.

Our San Francisco Skyline invitation has been a long-running client favorite. We initially designed the invitation suite for Katie and Lee for their magnificent wedding at the Ferry Building but the versatile design has now been used for weddings, anniversary parties and save the dates in a variety of colors, styles and printing methods!

Personalizing one of our signature designs allows you to have elegant invitations at substantial savings over our fully custom designs. Check out how some of our awesome couples have made this design their own!

Lasercut Wooden Wedding Invitations at The Lab Event

In February we took part in The Lab Event at the Ferry building. It was super fun and we were thrilled to be partnered with Charmed Events, La Fleuriste, Patisserie Angelica and Scott Andrew Photography for our rustic and romantic vignette. We were equally thrilled to create an invitation suite and wedding collateral featuring lasercut wood and silkscreened invitations and menus. Plus, who doesn’t love a gold-glitter lined envelope!


Oh, and here we are in the Tomfoolery photobooth!



Google’s Creative Sandbox


This summer we were approached by Flourish to use our CMYHey! Triangle Print for an event they were working on for Google at for the Cannes Lions advertising awards.

Though, sadly, we weren’t able to enjoy the event on the beach in France, we were pretty excited to see how it turned out — a pretty rad transformation for our little gocco print.  You can see a bit more about the event on Flourish’s site or watch the video below to hear a bit about the Google Creative Sandbox and see the space in use.

Featured Project: Jessie and Mack’s Wedding Invitations

Earlier this year, we had the pleasure of working with Jessie and Mack on their wedding invitations for their beach wedding in Carpinteria. Jessie and  Mack had one of the most unique and insanely awesome proposal stories involving an early morning chartered plane ride to view the sunrise. We were excited to have the opportunity to translate that experience into a bold graphic statement on their invitations.

The invitations were beautifully printed by Dependable Letterpress in San Francisco

Featured Project: Two Twenty Two Skin Care Studio

We were so thrilled when Jen Meyer came to us for her identity for Two Twenty Two Skin Care Studio and we are all totally excited by the result.

Jen is a fabulous aesthetician and a pleasure to work with; if you are in San Francisco, I highly recommend paying her a visit.
