Whisper the password “Gatsby”
I am so pleased to announce that we’ve recently had the pleasure of working with such a wonderful team of professionals for a fabulous photo shoot. Whitney of Wish Wonder Dream contacted us just a few short months ago to print stationery for the styled photo shoot and we were beyond thrilled to work with her again (we’ve worked with Whitney in the past for our own wedding last year in March). Whitney teamed up with Amanda Claverie of Rosebud Floral Design and Heidi Ryder of Heidi Ryder Photography to come up with such a wonderful concept: Gatsby Reimagined! When I saw the word Gatsby, I was sold. Who doesn’t love this era and style? I feel like I am somewhat of an old soul so this definitely peaked my interest, to say the least. She had also mentioned that the photo shoot was going to be held at the LA Athletic Club; my heart just melted. I was so giddy just imagining how everything was going to look!
The Letterpress Wedding Invitations
She sent over inspirational images and even sketched out some ideas of how she imagined the stationery to look like. We printed everything on the Ecru White cardstock which I thought was very fitting for the shoot. The Letterpress Invitations were printed on the 220# Ecru White cardstock which we printed on our wonderful 10×15 Chandler & Price with gold ink. We printed the additional pieces (menu, RSVP post card, etc) on the 110# Ecru on the Vandercook 4. The combination of the Ecru cardstock and the gold turned out so beautifully and definitely gave it more of that 1920’s feel.
That’s part of why I am so in love with Letterpress; the technique, the century old machines, the history.
It was so exciting to see everything come together and I’m so thrilled to share these wonderful photos with you.
Thanks to all the talented professionals that made this all possible!
