Customer Profile: An Island Wedding

In honor of summer, we wanted to showcase a colorful suite we created for a couple getting married in the Cayman Islands. Through our retailer, Studio Two Sixteen, we customized our Alyssa suite from our Impress album into this beauty. Using a mix of teal, silver and fuchsia inks on our bright white, teal and fuchsia papers, as well as adding special touches with the laser wrap, crystal and edge painting, the couple married a classic and tropical style beautifully. Happy Summer!

Suite Customization: Roberto Save the Date

This customized order transformed our Roberto suite into a cute save the date for this couple sent to us from our retailer, Gus and Ruby.

The original Roberto invitation is an A7 size, 2-color piece, utilizing our lime ink and blind press on our bright white recycled 1-ply paper. This couple opted to go with an A2 size card for their save the date. They also chose only one color, warm gray and are printing on our soft white cotton 1-ply paper. On the left of the image below is the working file of our original Roberto invitation. On the right is the customized version.

Then the proof is created and sent off to the client.  The end result was just what they wanted!

Fresh off the Press: Cut Spike Whiskey

We love doing projects for small, independent businesses, and this one was one of our absolute favorites. Cut Spike Distillery is located in La Vista, Nebraska and specializes in distilling high quality, small batch spirits. When it came time to print their beautifully designed whiskey labels, courtesy of Archrival, they came to Spark, and we're so glad they did! These fancy labels were printed on Strathmore Writing label stock in black and a custom metallic gold ink. The neck tags were printed on French Paper Muscletone 140# Cover in Black with a matching gold edge.


Couture Client: Hadley's Mitzvah

Last spring we were lucky enough to design this fun Mitzvah invitation suite for Hadley. It's based on our Daphne suite from the Impress line and features our bright white cotton, cherry and glacier papers, glacier and steel inks, and some fun translucent envelopes to hold it all. The die cut letter and heart are the signature of the Daphne suite. This version utilizes the letter for the invitation while using the heart for a sweet note to the guests. It also includes a detailed map card and a reply postcard. Below are some photos that showcase the invitation suite as well as Hadley's big day!

Free Font Fridays: Pacifico

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?

Suite Customization: 2 color molly suite

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!
