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!

Stationery | Vance Suite

I realize there still is snow on the ground, but in the world of design we stay ahead by a season – if not two!  Today’s post features an invitation suite for a spring wedding.  A night-before dessert reception, a traditional ceremony in a church, followed by a garden party.  Three pieces of varying heights stack inside a neat little pocket folder, their tops all coordinated and contrasting.  These then slip into an exterior envelope – all in tints of peapod green.  Perfect for May, wouldn’t you say?  The month of “Yes, you May.” Be sure to catch the Inspiration Board behind this invite for a whimsical garden fête.

Interested in customizing this suite for your upcoming event?  Message me using the above “Say Hello” form.  To learn more about stationery design by Design in August check out the About page.  Cheers!

Events | Nashville Bridal Brunch

{WINNERS} I am happy to announce the winners of the Design in August Studio Giveaway!!  The lucky brides-to-be are Miss Megan Deising (winner of the custom return address rubber stamp) and Miss Leah Caudle (winner of the custom thank you note set).  Congrats, ladies!!  I am excited to design these items for you and look forward to posting them here on the blog.

I was delighted to show my stationery work at HER Nashville’s Bridal Brunch this past Sunday.  We had an excellent turnout at Vanderbilt’s Commodore Ballroom and I am pleased as punch – or, should I say, mimosas!  It was such fun meeting with lovely brides-to-be (and their attentive grooms-to-be) as we chatted stationery needs and paper goods in a lively, brunch atmosphere.  I also had fun seeing which pieces caught the most attention – hello, lined envelopes & save the date postcards!  A highlight for attendees was the fashion show, featuring gown trends for Spring 2011 (ruffles! ruffles! ruffles!).  And a highlight for Design in August was not one, but TWO Studio Giveaways!  Brides entered to win either a set of custom thank you notes OR a custom return address rubber stamp.  I will be announcing the two lovely winners tomorrow.  Thanks, HER Nashville for hosting a can’t-miss brunch.  Cheers!

Stay tuned on Wednesday when I will announce the two winners of my Studio Giveaway!  Could it be you?!

Stationery | Christmas Card + Matching Gift Tag

“Bright wishes…” indeed!  I was delighted to design this Christmas card and matching gift tag for Lindsay.  We talked about using traditional colors of red or green or gold, but when she mentioned possibly going for bolder, non-traditional gem colors, we went for it!  A royal purple bellyband with their family initial dresses up this 5″x 7″ greeting.  Lindsay then slipped a 4″x 6″ family photo loosely inside the band and on top of the card.  That way friends and family could pull out the photo and frame it as they wished.  A custom return address rubber stamp (not pictured) in the same font families completed the look of the chartreuse envelopes, while this coordinating 3″x 3″ gift tag completed her holiday gift wrapping in style.  The best part is these gift tags will last her year round – birthdays, weddings, baby showers, you name it!  With chartreuse & royal purple dressing up this Christmas card and gift tag set, how could they be anything but “bright” wishes?!
