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!
We wanted to send out of heartfelt congratulations to one of our lovely retailer, Paper & Home, on the GRAND OPENING of their new retail location in Las Vegas, NV. We were so excited to see the store all put together and they were kind enough to share some amazing photos to show off their stunner of a store at their grand opening party! So much hard work and passion goes into opening a retail location and all we have to say is WOW!
Best wishes and many congratulations again, Paper & Home!

Spread Cheer... Every Day, Every Year
Autumn has finally arrived and we couldn't be happier here at Spark. The crisper air means that all of the lovely fall weddings are in full swing. Some couples love the idea of an outdoor wedding but in some areas that means waiting until fall because summers are far too HOT! Fall weddings are charming and cozy and allow for a whole new palette of colors to choose from.
The inspiration for this tips & trends board came from a wedding invite that we created for a lovely couple last year. They loved the AMELIE suite and wanted to customize it with brown and gold tones. They had their wedding out at Custer State Park in Western South Dakota where the buffalo roam freely and the trees create the perfect backdrop for an amazing fall wedding.
We're so excited about these new calling cards and gift tags we printed for one of our fabulous retailers, Pulp & Ink! These cards are letterpress printed on our 220# bright white cotton stock in black and custom blue inks. They are finished off with edge painting in the same custom blue ink.
This is the fourth time our work has graced the pages of Martha Stewart Weddings. Pinch me because I’m totally dreaming! Anyone who knows me knows that I typically have a hard time talking about the accomplishments of our business even though I’m extremely proud of what we do and our team that produces this work. I feel very fortunate to own a company that sits among some pretty amazing vendors who produce work for MSW.
The feature in the magazine is full of beautiful pictures of a beautiful couple. The invitations feature delicate artwork and type with a vintage appeal. All pieces were letterpress printed in gold on Crane Lettra 220# Cover in Pearl White for the invitation and 110# Cover for the rest of the pieces. All of the cards had gold edge painting as well – the perfect finishing touch.
Spark loves our wedding invitations but the passion also spreads wide in the world of custom personal stationery. Over the years we have been creating amazing and personalized calling cards for our clients and their companies. A company makes its first impression on their clients with the cards they initially hand to them. Letterpress leaves a lasting impression that no other card could.
Ahoy! A big trend that we've seen recently in wedding stationery has been a nautical one. Anchors, vintage maps and sea creatures of all kinds can be found on many a bride's invitation. Here's Spark's inspiration board to go with our new nautical themed suite, Georgina.
