May 2017’s Projects

Fantastical design meets spectacular formats in May’s work for our clients. Mermaids, lobsters, dogs, birds and horses; who knew you could hide so many animals, real and imaginary, in wedding stationery? We pride ourselves on embracing the desires of the client, whether they’re more reserved or flamboyant.

Jolly Edition Blog Post May 2017 Under the Sea theme wedding invitation suite. Fold out invitation with tear away RSVP postcard. Mermaid, coral, fish, crab, pelican, fish, seagull, lobster illustration.
When Yuna & Matthew asked us to include an underwater wonderland in their invitation we knew their project was going to become a bookmark of our year. Matthew was downgraded from a merman to man but that turned out to be a very romantic meeting of worlds (isn't that what a wedding's all about?). The accordion-folding invitation, with perforated reply postcard, added to the exciting introduction — everyone will smile opening their invitation — of the wedding day to follow.
Florals, pooches, Mark Twain, and Hellen Keller all featured in Teegan & Brandon's invitation to their Connecticut wedding.

Here's a good use of format influencing design. We used off-white paper to provide a more subtle, pastel look for Rachel & Samuel's invitation. The colors wouldn't work on bright white paper as they did using the off-white. Bonus points for a cute pooch.

We worked with Lexi & Brent for more than a year to produce their save the date, invitation, and day of wedding stationery. Their invitation was the jewel in the crown — a folding cover with mounted invitation and pocket, holding their lobster bake invitation, reply card, bookmark, and other inserts. The cover was closed by their fastened wrap, neatly tucked inside their lined envelope. The lucky guests are in for a treat at the spectacular events planned by the couple, beautifully introduced by our work.

Some of the cutest weddings we produce work for are at family homes. Packed with history, they set a meaningful stage for the day's proceedings. Mary & Mitchell's save the date features two handsome pooches, a horsedrawn carriage, and the idyllic family home setting.
