Spark's Standing Save the Date

Since we opened the Loft at Spark last Fall, we've been working one-on-one with clients locally. It is fun to work with clients in person and help them create stationery that reflects their design-style and meets their budget. We offer our local clients custom designs that may be printed letterpress (of course), foil-stamped or digital. We also provide a variety of custom finishing options as well as envelope addressing.



This save the date is digitally-printed on Stardream opal 105# cover. It is sized to fit into an A2 envelope. For our letterpress fans out there, this design can easily be translated to letterpress.

Contemporary Wedding Set



We try hard to produce wedding designs for every bride. Check out this invitation set we produced for Pulp & Ink, Chicago, back in the day. This contemporary set is understated and youthful in celadon and charcoal inks. Printed on Crane Lettra 110# cover in fluorescent white. Included in this set is the save the date, invite panel, reply set, directions card, belly band and outer envelope. The insert cards tuck in behind to make a tidy little package!

Wedding Spotlight: Destination Weddings

Destination weddings are definitely a popular trend these days. Couples are tying the knot on tropical islands, in European villas or in the foothills of mountains – places that create magical moments amongst breathtaking scenery.

Creating wedding stationery for such an event takes a little more effort for couples, simply because there is more information to relay to invited guests. It is essential to set the tone and anticipation for the event by weaving the wedding stationery together to create a cohesive design style.

The following stationery pieces ought to be part of the destination wedding stationery suite (in addition to the invitation set).

  • Save-the-date. Please give invited guests ample time to make travel arrangements for a destination wedding. Save-the-dates are mailed at least 8 months to 1 year in advance of the event. Include travel and accommodation information as well as a list of all scheduled activities (date, time, location) during the wedding weekend.
  • Ceremony & Reception Program. Print a double-sided program, die cut into an interesting shape. We recently did a program in the shape of a scallop shell as the ceremony took place on the beach. Remember that this can be a keepsake for guests!
  • Place Cards, Table Cards & Menus. Keep with the design style to create these additional pieces that will make your reception memorable down to the last detail. We often die cut menu cards in the shape of a circle to fit nicely in the plate charger on the table.

Spark Retailer: Pulp & Ink, Chicago

The invitation panel and reply card is printed on Crane Lettra 220# cover paper in Fluorescent White. The design is based on our Meadowbrook invitation featured in the Spark Custom Album, except that the bubbles on our sample were substituted with sea turtles. Ink colors are navy and spring green. The A7 size envelope is lined with text weight navy paper to compliment the navy ink on the panels.



There are a set of five welcome cards that greet invited guests to the wedding weekend, recommend various activities on the island, map the airport and hotels and outline the scheduled date, time and location of the scheduled activities. The cards are printed on Crane Lettra 110# cover in Fluorescent White. Ink colors are blue and green (custom colors).



The program front and back cover is printed on Crane Lettra 110# cover in Fluorescent White. Inside pages are printed on Crane Lettra 80# text weight in Fluorescent white. Ink colors are navy and spring green. A double-faced satin ribbon in navy is tied bookmark style at the top to secure the pages. The program provides a detailed description of the Jewish wedding ceremony. Over nine plates were used to print the program on our Heidelberg Windmill press – this spent many hours on our press to complete!

The thank you cards are a flat, A2 size card with printed envelopes. Featured on Crane Lettra 110# cover in Fluorescent White. Ink colors are navy and spring green.

Many thanks to Colin at Pulp & Ink, Chicago, and to the groom who drew the wonderful sea turtles featured throughout the wedding suite. Let’s also not forget designer and artist, Cassie Medema, who created the Meadowbrook design featured in our custom album.
