Spark's Open House

I can’t believe it’s been a few weeks since our open house already. After all of the planning and excitement, it came and went all too quickly. We had a great time mingling with current and future clients, industry colleagues, vendors and more. We expect this to be the first of many future events as we now have the perfect space for hosting gatherings large and small.

During the event we handed out posters that were letterpress-printed in gold and gray on French Paper Dur-O-Tone 100# cover in Steel Grey.

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!
