Pretty in Pink (and Taupe)

<span class=

I'm really flattered to have been included in the latest issue of Martha Stewart Weddings!

I designed an escort card and an envelope, drawing on the artwork from a full invitation suite that I'd already created. I think the artwork looks really charming in the bright colors and at this smaller scale. While the Designer in me was really very pleased, the Printer in me was very cross at said-Designer (what were you thinking?!); artwork like this ('bleeding' off the edges of the paper, the slight curve of the art and the way it lays over the 'seams' of the folded envelope) is technically really difficult to print well. I know—nobody knows the troubles I've seen— but really, it was a fun challenge that only another experienced printer could appreciate (or probably even notice). 

And, at the end of the day, what shows is the perfectly sweet results and I am truly grateful.
