Last summer we worked with a lovely bride, Antonia, who planned a spectacular vineyard wedding in September. Her design inspiration stems from the Zoe suite, which is part of our Impress line. She selected a color palette of silver and wisteria, paired with bright white cotton and wisteria papers. Antonia was kind enough to send us a few shots of her day. Enjoy!
We love fonts here at Spark. We also love free things. Put them together and you've got a pretty spectacular situation! Fridays, we will share with you some of our favorite free fonts. Just click the image to get the font for yourself!
Today we had summer on the brain and Pacifico is the perfect summertime font. Trip to Hawaii anyone?
What sets Spark apart from others in the industry is that we can customize everything from ink and paper color to wording, layout and beyond. Here is one example of how we can take one of our designs and make it work for our clients' preferences.
This client, through our retailer Paper & Poste, requested the Molly suite from our Bliss album.
The client had a different wording order, different layout ideas and color changes. Here is an in-progress screenshot of the project coming together. On the left of the screen is the original Molly. On the right is the customized version. Instead of one color, this client opted for two. Instead of the address in the circular art, they opted to show the date instead. Since they wanted their middle and last names to be shown, the designer reworked that section to accommodate the longer names.
After we finish the initial customizing, we send a proof so that the client can decide if anything needs to be reworked.
This is just one example of the hundreds of customizations we have done over the years. There really is almost no limit to what you can customize on any of our suites. Ask us about a customization you have in mind and we will help create a couture suite just for you!
Take a peek at these adorable, nautical themed calling cards and matching notecards! The custom, oversized calling card is a 3.5x3" card duplex printed in our royal and cool gray inks on our bright white 2-ply paper. The notecard is also a custom size at 5.5x4.25" printed in our royal ink on our bright white 2-ply paper. Design by Envision Wedding Studio and AC Ellis Photography.
What a treat! We have the pleasure of being featured in the Spring 2014 Inside Weddings magazine! The Charlotte invitation (top left) from the BLISS line and a couture version of the Tessa suite (top right) from the IMPRESS line were both featured in this pretty pink layout. We still get so excited to see our work in print and for the happy couples that choose Spark Letterpress to print their invitation!
I am often asked why I got into the stationery industry. I could overcomplicate the answer to this question, but really it is quite simple. I love being a small part of the biggest day in a couple’s lives. Whether we’re creating a fresh take on a classic Spark design, applying hundreds of crystals to a gorgeous program or painstakingly drawing a detailed map so the guests know exactly where to go, we approach each day with the understanding that our work is a piece of history in the story of their love.
That love for what we do can be seen in some recent press where our work was featured. From an ethereal Florida wedding using our Isabel pocketfold design
to a chic Des Moines celebration shimmering with gold foil on their custom Zoe suite. And not to be forgotten – a suite of couture creations done for a couple desiring a playful vintage aesthetic that tied in the groom’s Scottish heritage!
Thank you to all of our clients that allow us to do what we love. Happy New Year to you and yours!
Thank you to Union Street Papery for working with us on the Leslie & Blake’s wedding, and to The Village Invites for bringing Leslie & Andrew our way.
We had the privilege of designing some gorgeous wedding stationery for Sioux Falls couple, Kayla & Blake. Starting with our Katherine suite from our Impress line, the couple truly made it their own. Today, their fabulous wedding is featured on Style Me Pretty! We couldn't be happier for the beautiful couple!
