more wedding style

A couple years ago, my baby sister got married and asked me to design, among other things, her invitation suite. She specifically requested a design that had been quite popular when I first debuted it as part of Cecily Ink (you can read about it here and here.)

Well, last fall it was time for another sister's wedding, and I was thrilled when she, too, asked me to design her invitation.

And yes, Marie also opted to use a best-selling Cecily Ink design. No problem, certainly made my job easier, especially given the relatively quick turn-around time.

Because both timing and budget were tight, I recommended digital printing. I chose a digital-friendly felt-finish paper so we could still get that wonderful texture. I also specified target PMS numbers so the printer could match the orange & brown colors as closely as possible.

Because the maximum sheet size for the printer's digital press is quite a bit smaller than a traditional offset press sheet, I adjusted sizes as necessary to still fit as many pieces as possible onto the sheet. This way, the bride could use her "wedding look" on things like thank-you cards, place cards and favor tags, too.
The invitation suite turned out beautifully and the bride was quite pleased. Thanks, Marie, for entrusting me with such an important part of your Big Day!
