A Surprise elopement
Save the Dates
Nicki + Mark planned their celebration for Savannah, Georgia– the city the couple called home during Mark's graduate years at SCAD. They knew they wanted to incorporate the scenic city into the invitations, and the Save the Dates were the obvious choice!
Nicki sourced an antique Savannah postcard which we scanned, doctored up, and added our own design to. The results are puh-retty fun, if I do say so myself! Heck yeah, go team! Off to a good start.
Once we settled on a color palette and the too-cool-4-school string-tie envelope, we decided The Francis Suite would be a perfect vintage-meets-quirky base. Mark created a series of spot illustrations for me to use in the design, which made this suite incredibly personal and added the perfect quirk.
Since Nicki is the head printer and production manager at Igloo Letterpress, she was able to print each piece on their antique machines, giving each piece a wonderfully tactile look and feel.
Finally, each suite was assembled and packaged by Nicki + Mark, with a handful of vintage stamps.
Does it get any better? I really don't think so. Thanks to Nicki + Mark for letting me work on these with you!
