The color combinations uniquely changes the entire look of the design, which allows a bride to essentially have their own one-of-a-kind wedding invitation! Again, this is one of the awesome things about working with Behold Designz – you get to be an integral part of the process, customizing your wedding invitation suite to match your color palette and floral selections, and having a finished product that you’ll LOVE sharing with your friends and family!

Custom Save The Date Magnet Shapes!

UNIQUE & CREATIVE WEDDING SAVE-THE-DATE MAGNETS

Save the dates are the bride and groom’s special way of sharing the exciting news of their engagement and providing the basic 411 for their intended guests and provides them ample time to mark their calendar and book travel arrangements at reasonable rates and costs, if need be.

I personally think that save the dates set the tone of your wedding and is a simplistic statement of what is to come. It  has become widely popular for bride and groom’s to select save-the-dates that reflect their style, make a statement, or compliments their wedding theme.

There are a lot of save the date options but they are typically in paper form, however recently, magnet save-the-dates have exploded with popularity. Why? It has a utility function and is most likely to be utilized and kept by your guests as a wonderful keepsake symbolic of your wedding!

The beauty is in the details…

One of the biggest and sometimes hardest choice when it comes to wedding planning is the stationary suite—invitations, save-the-date, RSVP/response cards, favor tags, place card names, table names, bridal shower, etc. These paper decor items really set the tone for your event and typically embodies the theme, idea, feelings/emotions that the couple wants to convey to their guests. Generally, these items are designed to match and compliment each other and the wedding’s decor.

The fashion-forward paper product that is gaining popularity with a $$$ pricetag is the beautiful letterpress. I LOVE the look of letterpress products—its timeless, elegant, artistic, vintage, and makes a beautiful statement regardless of its words. Here are some beautiful letterpress products for weddings that come from a very talented graphic designer that I have the pleasure of knowing personally. She does an amazing job creatively and delicately tailoring her products to her customers and I hope you enjoy her work as much as I do. I also invite you to read the insert below of my interview of this creative designer~Marsinah Burgos~who shares some tips for brides and gives some insight about letterpress! (Check out her website below for more samples of her work! Also, for you fashionistas, you may find an attractive interest in her blog as well.)

Interview with the mind behind the design, Blushing Pearl’s Owner & Designer~Marsinah Burgos

1. Tell us about your business, what is Blushing Pearl and the inspiration behind it?

Blushing Pearl is a design and letterpress printing studio that specializes in fully customized design and paper ephemera. The studio is owned and creatively designed/letterpress printed by Marsinah (yours truly!). We have an online Etsy shop and we are in the process of opening up an online wholesale website, as well as expanding our pre-designed Wedding Stationery line fondly called “Bliss”. Here are some links to Blushing Pearl:

2. Besides wedding invitations, what other custom design work do you do?

Aside from Wedding invitation suites, Blushing Pearl also specializes in design work for business cards, baby showers and announcements, graduations, and ready-made paperie (found in our Etsy shop). We also specialize in branding and logo development, which will help you create the look of your business through logo design, color palettes, stationery options, website layouts, and unique collateral material to fully brand your business.

3.       What is your inspiration for projects that you develop that are not custom ordered (ie. Etsy portfolio)?

Inspiration comes from everything and everywhere. The luxury about owning your own business is that you can determine what you want to design and produce. Having worked in the Fashion Industry, I would have to say Fashion and textile patterns have a great impact on my creativity. I also like traveling and photographing street art as well.

4.  Your letterpress work is beautiful! Can you explain to us what letterpress is, why it’s typically more expensive, and the value of using letterpress over traditional design processes? Do you only do letterpress custom design work?

The art of Letterpress printing is a vintage process that requires a methodic technique and physical labor. Each individual piece of 100% cotton fiber paper is hand-fed by me, one color at a time, into my vintage Chandler & Price 8×12 letterpress. A delicate impression is made on the paper that is unique to the art of letterpress. Some of my clients appreciate the exquisite art of letterpress printing, which creates a tactile and sophisticated look of the design onto cotton fiber paper. My letterpress studio is in my garage. The press itself is cast iron and weighs about 800 lbs. I’ve restored and repainted my press. You can view the beautification process and how it works here:

If you have an existing logo or design file, Blushing Pearl can letterpress print  your design. Just keep in mind that your artwork is original and not copyrighted!

5. What advice can you give a bride looking to make her wedding unique and what to keep in mind when selecting the save-the-dates, invitations, response cards, favor tags, etc?

Brides- it helps out to keep an “idea binder”, where you take all of those favorite magazine cut outs and samples from bridal shows and keep a visual journal of what you like or don’t like. This way you can clearly see what direction your wedding is headed. As a designer for wedding invitations, I usually ask for visual references to better help me know what style you are looking for. From there, we can narrow down your options and start creating a cohesive look for your invitation.

Another very, VERY important tip- make sure you proof read, and then proof read again. The little extra time it takes to proof read twice will help save added expenses in the end.
