Smock in the Press – Fall 2012

Letterpress wedding invitations and greeting cards from Smock have been spotted in some amazing places lately, and today we’re excited to share the features that Smock has been a part of this fall! For their Fall 2012 issue, Inside Weddings magazine included a custom wedding invitation set from Smock that featured a letterpress sleeve and combined two of our most popular designs: our floral Rhon design paired with elements from our more modern Dawson design.

An invitation customization featuring Smock's Rhon and Dawson designs was featured in the fall 2012 issue of Inside Weddings

Brides magazine featured one of our new, foil stamped wedding invitation designs and matching invitation sleeve — our whimsical Tatra customization — as part of their November issue.

Smock's Tatra customization features fuchsia shine foil stamping and was featured in the November 2012 issue of Brides magazine

Coastal Living included several of our products in their October 2012 issue as part of their “8 Steps to a Stress-Free Work Zone” feature. Our Bicyclette and Chatham scratchpads ($7 each) and our Breakers notebook ($9 each) are perfect reasons to take a break from technology to write down notes the old-fashioned way.

Stationery Trends magazine featured one of our new holiday cards as part of their Fall 2012 issue — our Joyeux Noel card (which features letterpress and gold foil stamping) was included in a piece all about gold.

Olivia & Tim’s Real Wedding + Inside Weddings Magazine Feature!

We love seeing the real weddings of brides and grooms who ordered their wedding invitations from Smock, but it’s an extra-special treat when the wedding photos come from one of our beloved Smock dealers! Today’s real wedding spotlight features Olivia, daughter of Edie Frere (Smock dealer extraordinaire and owner of Landis Gifts & Stationery in Los Angeles!) and her gorgeous wedding at The Holly Farm in Carmel, California. Olivia ordered a stunning invitation suite featuring our modern Ossa design in black and lime inks with a sophisticated folio that tied everything together. Inside Weddings loved her invitation set so much that they chose to feature it in their Summer 2012 issue! Olivia filled us in on what went into planning their fabulous wedding and even gave a few tips for couples who are currently planning their own celebrations.

How did you choose your invitation design & ink color?
I am very fortunate that my Mom and her team at Landis Gifts and Stationery are so good at what they do! We told Mom that we liked letterpress and wanted something fun and unusual. She took it from there!

Can you share with us a bit about your wedding and your inspiration for the event?
We focused on throwing a really fun, casual party for our family and friends.  Our wedding would not have been possible without their support, so we wanted to make sure THEY had a really good time!

What advice do you have for couples currently planning a wedding?
Don’t stress. Planning a wedding can be so overwhelming. I’ll admit, I was a bit of a stress case myself, but in the end it all worked out the way we had envisioned. My husband’s advice: Eat meals together, family style. You can do a better job planning when you talk about it over meals.

What was your favorite moment?
The satisfaction of planning and enjoying the occasion so deeply. We feel we did something as a couple that was greater than what we could have done as 
individuals and that was incredibly meaningful to us both.

Favorite design element of your big day?
We loved the flags that Mom had made for our signature drink. They were a surprise and added a great touch to our reception!  We also loved our wedding cake decorated with a tandem bike.

What’s next for the newlyweds?
We are planning a honeymoon to South America, hopefully this fall! We love traveling and adventure, and are planning to spend a few weeks exploring Chile and  Argentina by bike and boat.

Congratulations and best wishes to Olivia and Tim from everyone here at Smock!

It’s time again for us to extend our endless thanks to the wonderful editors and bloggers out there for featuring Smock in their fantastic publications this spring! Smock’s double-sided gift wrap, letterpress wedding invitations, jotters and more have been spotted in some amazing places lately.

First up, Brides magazine featured letterpress wedding invitations from our custom line in their April and May issues — a pretty customization of our Hekla invitation was featured alongside some of our signature envelope liners (based on our gift wrap!) and feature fun chevron stripes in a pretty purple hue.
