The Jackie O' Suite...

This is why I love what I do. We can take a conventional yet gorgeous wedding suite, and pair it with different pieces like a splattered paint welcome book, and a geometric liner, which totally sets this suite apart from the rest. Think of it as a little sneak peek of what's about to come in the 42 Pressed stationery line set to launch this spring! Eeek! So excited to share with you guys...

Look Linger Love Business Cards

Type: Biz Cards  |  Printed & Designed: 42 Pressed  |   Stock: Lettra, 220 LB. 

Excited to share these business cards that I printed and designed for Chassity Evans' blog, Look Linger Love. I met Chassity through one of my sweet friends & we became fast fierce friends. She's so fun, so badass and so real. I wanted to design something that would reflect Chassity's intense style, but create something that really was ever evolving. I came up with this revolving pattern, that changes throughout the back of her card. Two color front and then 2 different colors and patterns for the back, 3 times over! They were pretty intense to print, but I LOVE how they came out.

We love working with the team at Easton Events its always such a blast. They're couples are so fun and unique, a perfect match to our style and aesthetic. 

To kick off the New Year, I wanted to share this suite we completed a few months ago. It's an important one because it definitely sets the tone for our new 2014 wedding collection set to debut in early spring, so I thought it would be perfect time to share. This color and style pallette is definitely one of my favorites. Pairing traditional classic with fun and modern hand drawn patterns is definitely something that I have been drawn to lately design wise.  It's such a fun way to incorperate your personal style into your own wedding suite. So here's to a little sneak peek of what's to come for 42 Pressed!

Instagram favorites from the month and a little update.

Things are slowly fizzling down a little bit around here from the buzz of wedding season in Charleston and I have to say I am feeling a little apprehensive about it, even though things get crazy around here in January, I always feel a little weird not being super slammed, but I think I need to chill out a little bit and let that happen. I am going to take this time to explore and dive into the world of ready made stationery, something I have been wanting to do for quite sometime, but just haven't really had the time to develope my own voice and really go for it. So in the meantime, I thought it would be a nice addition to the blog to showcase a few of my instagram favorites on here from time to time, hope that is alright with you guys. I like to mix it up sometimes and find a nice balance between work, inspiration and my personal life. So here is to taking a crack at that and having giving this blog a bit more of a presence. You can find me on instagram here if you feel like following along.
