For the April 6 Stationery Saturday, we’re personalizing animal-themed lettersheets. Crazy for cats? You’ll love the sleepy kitten. Fancy a fox? We got that covered. And there’s a wiener dog, a chickadee and a squirrel too! Pick your favorite critter (or two) and we’ll imprint a set for you with the name or phrase of your choice. There’s two 18-point lead fonts to choose from (Goudy Oldstyle or Clarendon Bold), and two ink colors too (brown or blue). All the animals have been pre-printed in taupe ink on 80# natural white wove-finish stationery sheets, measuring 5.5×8.5 inches. We think it’s a great size for a letter – not too big, not too small! You also get your choice of 5 different textured envelopes to accompany your custom stationery. And we’ll tie it all up with butchers twine and a letterpress-printed tag, making a ready-to-give gift or a handsome treasure to keep for yourself.
From 11 to 6, we’ll have the Heidelberg Windmill and the Vandercook proof press inked up and ready to go. Guests can watch as we set type and run the presses, or just nibble on homemade cookies and browse in our shop while we do the dirty work. Whatever you choose, we’ll send you home with a set of custom letterpress-printed stationery for just $29. Do make sure you peek at our Mother’s Day and Father’s Day cards while you’re here, we have a bunch of great designs in stock and they’re going fast.
Special guest Dr. Christa of Caravan Vet will be here too! Caravan Vet is the metro’s first full-service mobile veterinary clinic. You won’t be able to miss her big poodle-emblazened rig, which will be parked out front. Christa was a part-time worker bee here at Lunalux when she was a student of veterinary medicine, so we are excited to have her on hand for one of our weekend specials. She’ll be giving tours of the clinic, and handing out gift bags (full of pet goodies from our other friends at Urbanimal) to everyone who takes part in the Stationery Saturday festivities. Be sure to visit the Caravan Vet website to learn more about their services.
Check our Stationery Saturday page for additional details about the event, and upcoming Stationery Saturday dates. We’ve created a listing for the event on our facebook page, and we hope you’ll tell all your friends about it! If you can’t participate in the fun this weekend, you’re not out of luck. You can order your personalized animal stationery through the Lunalux storefront at feltandwireshop.com
We recently created this unique wedding invitation for Nicole and Zeb, a sweet couple with a nutty sense of humor. At our initial meeting, the betrothed were interested in two different concepts: intricate scroll/vine illustrations, or a squirrel in a tree. After reviewing our initial round of invitation mock-ups, the squirrel was the clear winner. It’s so much fun when clients come to us with original ideas, and we get to bring those ideas to life. I’m very pleased with how these invitations turned out – the quirky motif, cool color scheme, and chunky typesetting are all fresh elements for us, and it’s always a treat to do something new!
We developed the squirrel-in-the-tree graphic using a few different pieces of clip art, and paired the image with sturdy, interesting fonts. The invitation, RSVP postcard, information/directions card, and thank-you flat were all letterpress-printed in gray and navy ink on florescent white 100% cotton Lettra cover, and paired with pale gray envelopes.
Like all of our wedding invitations, Nicole & Zeb’s suite was custom-designed just for them. We specialize in working closely with couples to develop wedding stationery that reflects their personality and the mood of the event, be it whimsical and fun or romantic and old-fashioned.
