Vibrant Letterpress Invitations for an Island Wedding Celebration

Take a splash into summer with a cool and colorful Helani letterpress wedding suite submitted by our friends at Kate’s Paperie – SoHo in New York City.  Our smock spencerian calligraphy font is always a winner and is used for the couple’s name and wedding venue lines – which adds to the whimsical feel.  Playful type and our robin’s egg ink really create the excitement for the wedding on the island of Turks + Caicos.  What really has us pepped is the sensational wash of robin’s egg on the envelope liner – we can close our eyes and see the sparkling and inviting crystal waters.  We think this invitation suite is spot on – and a perfect match to what we expect was a fabulous and unforgettable wedding celebration!

Custom Crochet Letterpress Holiday Cards

We’re going to take you on a bit of a holiday adventure this week! With just a couple of weeks left to take advantage of our free envelope printing promotion on custom holiday orders, we thought we’d share a handful of the incredible letterpress holiday cards we’ve been printing this year. Nothing gets us excited for the holidays more than a really beautiful letterpress card, like this custom design featuring the crochet motif from our Smock Everyday collection as pretty snowflakes. Printed in silver and navy inks, this lovely customization came to us from our friends at Kate’s Paperie at their Midtown location. Still on the hunt for the perfect custom holiday cards? Our holiday promotion is good on orders placed between now and December 1!

Smock Travels – New York City (Part I)

While in New York City last week for our Kate’s Paperie events, we took the time to visit many of our favorite Smock retailers! We have lots of photos of our events with Kate’s to share, but first we wanted to share a little glimpse at the rest of our travels across Manhattan and Brooklyn. Our first stop was The Village Invites on 43rd where we spent time chatting with Linda, Adrienne and Jaye. They have the prettiest assortment of great gift wrap and big spools of ribbon that make us dream of wrapping the loveliest of holiday packages.

Being Halloween week, there was no shortage of costumes to be found throughout the city. Here, Lindsy poses with a great Big Bird costume and with a creepy skeleton in our hotel lobby.
