Stationery | Hello from the new Mr. + Mrs.

If you recall, back in February I had a little Studio drawing at this Nashville affair, and one lucky bride won the Grand Prize: a set of 50 custom designed note cards!  This bride and her attentive fiancé looked at several ideas for designs, from a monogram to a “Thank You” message.  They finally settled on a more universal message saying simply: “Hello from Mr. & Mrs. Jennings.”  They’ll be able to use these lovelies for a variety of hand-written notes and messages!  Bright peacock blue envelopes coordinating with the peacock blue, burnt orange and chocolate brown of their wedding day colors.  What a fun & crisp, modern design!  And best wishes to the soon to be Mr. + Mrs. Jennings!


Save the Date | Jenny + Mike

I am happy to share these gorgeous postcards with you today!  With a design intending to showcase Jenny + Mike’s engagement session photos, these Save the Date postcards were printed on a pearlescent paper with a warm, ivory tone.  They set the stage for an elegant “Welcome Back the Newlyweds” dinner reception when Jenny + Mike arrive home from their private, family-only wedding in… of all places… St. Lucia!  Wow.  What a fantastic location for an intimate May wedding!  The soft greens hint at the greens of the island, yet set the stage for Jenny’s floral accents at the party.  And now we’re designing Jenny + Mike’s coordinating Thank You cards in the same cream and ivory palette.  Lovely.  Best wishes to you guys!!


Branding | Letterhead + Envelope

Indeed!  Cardinals need stationery too!  This project came may way once again via Joel Smythe at The Graphics Lab. His client requested a traditional letterhead + envelope suite for all correspondence coming out of the Vatican City office of James Francis Cardinal Stafford.  That’s right.  Design in August has gone international!!  This set was a large off-set job, printed on Cougar Natural Text 70lb for a warm, old-world tone, and features the Cardinal’s coat of arms.


And this fabulous letter opener?  A little something Mr. G and I collected while honeymooning in Spain.  Olé!

Stationery | Embossers

I am happy to announce a new product offering from Design in August! What finer way is there to polish off an envelope than with a timeless Embosser?  Or put your mark on your precious books with a “From the Library of” Embosser?  Design in August now offers desktop models (pictured here) or hand-held models (not-pictured) in a custom design made exclusively for you by yours truly!

And don’t forget our Custom Rubber Stamps!  With a variety of sizes and wood-mounted (pictured below) or self-inking, a Custom Rubber Stamp is another lovely way to address an envelope, mark your personal library, or flourish a gift tag with a monogram.  Message me using the “Say Hello” form above for more information.  Cheers!

Save the Date | Kylee + Dan

A modern script paired with a touch of Nashville flair, this Save the Date sets the tone for Kylee + Dan’s Nashville wedding this coming May.  What better way is there to announce your event and point your guests to your personal website where they can find event and travel information?  My favorite detail: the postmark on the front showing their May 28th wedding date and location.  So fun!  To find out more details about these 5″ x 7″ postcards, message me using the above Say Hello form.  Congratulations, Kylee + Dan!  Nashville is quite lovely in May.
