World's Best Heidelberg Windmill Platen Press Demo Video

A recently engaged friend asked me to explain how our letterpress wedding invitation printing press actually works. Trying to demonstrate the process using my hands, a couple pieces of paper and a whole lot of descriptive words, I quickly remembered what my high school English teacher used to always tell me: “Show, don’t tell.”

This trip down memory lane not only made me realize how silly I must have looked trying to play charades as a printing press, but it also got my cinematic… Continue

Pastels for the fall

Spring is not the only time to use soft colors. The trend appearing this fall is the use of shades of pinks and yellows, mint greens and other pastel colors. These colors are refelcted in the bridal party florals, ceremony decor and in abundance during the reception. A table runner or overlay has the ability to bring a large swatch of the colors to your table. You can also achieve the color in the room through the use of lighting options. How ever you… Continue

A Favor of a Response....

A wedding starts and ends with paper; the Save the Dates, the Invitations and finally, the Thank You's.

An Invitation is a very important piece of paper that you will send to your guests. Not only does it tell them the obligatory who, what, when and where, but your invitation also lets your guests know how to dress and act. It also lets them know who are the hosts, what they will be doing after your ceremony and other pieces of information.

So -- the crazy and zany lettering on… Continue

Dreams, Themes, and Color Schemes

Right after we were engaged, I immediately started subscribing/purchasing every bridal magazine in sight. I was so motivated, I probably could’ve had a wedding planned in about 2 weeks! But as that didn’t happen, I still had about 20 months to go until the big day. I am relatively indecisive in everyday life, so of course my mind changed about 200 times about which colors to go with for the wedding.

I started out loving blush pink and champagne. I wanted champagne satin bridesmaid… Continue

Sometimes it takes a bride to know what a bride is going through.. friends and family just don't get it because they either are "full up" of wedding stuff or it's been too long since their own wedding to remember the trauma and drama of a wedding day.

And that is where the internet is heaven sent.

Bridal forums and chat boards give you a chance to vent (anonymously if need be) or… Continue
