I absolutely love how this custom personal stationery project came out. Amy, my client, (and the sister of my sister’s boyfriend) is a newlywed, and wanted stationery with her new last name. I put together a few options and she settled on this sweet lacy pattern in yellow, with her name in a clean and elegant script.
Patterned backers are a lovely add-on for any notecard. For Amy’s cards we carried over more of the lacy yellow print from the front.
Custom stationery pricing is available by request via email, and I will be carrying a small selection in my online shop once it is up and running later this spring.
I know I’m a little behind in posting these, but they turned out so well I couldn’t not share them. Here are some of the custom holiday cards I designed this year, including our own Christmas card.
First up was this sparkly number with deep charcoal background and a faux glitter effect:
This next design was for my brother-in-law and his family. They moved earlier this year, so we included their new address on the envelope flap with an arrow to highlight it. (btw, is our nephew the cutest or what?)
This design features a wreath of pinecones and winter florals in a gray and red palette. I carried the wreath over to the envelope flap as well, I love printed envelopes!
Last but not least, our family card, which I used to test out my printer’s gold foil. I love how the gold foil looks over a full-bleed photo card- and hope to offer a lot of foil in future collections.
I only took a few custom holiday clients this year, but hope to offer a full line of photo cards next year, as well as some other seasonal paper goods. I’ll keep you updated when 2014 holiday work gets underway in May, (yep- May!)
Just popping in to wish everyone a belated Happy New Year! I’ll be back soon with lots of new work to share, thanks for following Duncan Park Papers! -Laura
