I love it when it’s time to print new business cards. My new batch just got delivered this morning and I’m very pleased with the quality. The colors are great!
All illustrators must have colourful business cards, of course. It’s a must. ;0)
When I designed our wedding stationery, I thought it would be a good idea to include some practical information about our venue, as well as a map of the area. This is not exactly necessary, as everyone can access google maps on their smartphones, but I thought it would be a nice, personal touch.
This is what it looked like in the end:
Even if it wasn’t exactly essential, adding a map saved me from having to explain to everyone how to get to our venue and repeat myself over and over again, which would have been inevitable. So in a sense it made life a lot easier… for ME! :0)
After the Save the Date cards, the invitations and the maps, what came next? – The best part: the menus and table plans! The menus were definitely my favourite piece of stationery. I’ll post them here tomorrow. Stay tuned.
>> Save the Date cards
Recently I illustrated and designed my own wedding stationery. ♥
These were our Save the Date cards:
I love hand drawn typography and I wanted to keep things soft and simple: just a hint of color, a couple of cute details here and there, and very good quality paper. I am also CRAZY about washitape. The one I used here was from Paperchase. I fell in love with the pattern.
Tomorrow I’ll post our official invitations. Our wedding was in London so needless to say, I had a little bit of fun with the illustrations… ;0)
