Save the Date for Caity and Doug

I'm so excited to be putting together the invitation suite for this winter wedding. It's being held at the Bedford Post Inn and the couple wanted a wedding suite designed around the beautiful barn where the reception will take place. We also came up with a return address stamp inspired by the post sign outside of the inn. Letterpress by Patrick Masterson on thick Crane Lettra paper.

Congratulations, Liz and Sam!

Happy wedding day, Liz and Sam! I so enjoyed working with this bride and coming up with this horseshoe motif, fitting for their Montana ranch wedding. She wanted something elegant but slightly rustic to go along with the beautiful mountainous setting. The save the dates, invitations and reply cards were letterpressed on thick Crane Lettra 220 lb. paper by Four Hats Press. Best wishes and congratulations to the happy couple!

Congratulations to Janet and Tommy!

Happy wedding day to Janet and Tommy! I had the pleasure of working with this couple on their classic wedding invitation. Black thermography on, again, one of my current favorites, Waste Not Paper in Luxe White.



The simple program was printed front and back making it convenient for guests to read.


Best wishes and congratulations, Janet and Tommy!

Some Little Girl Enclosure Cards

When Lillie's mom ordered enclosure cards for her young daughter she knew she wanted to be able to use them for a few years to come so the design needed to grow with her. She settled on the first card while the other two contenders are below.

Beverly's Stationery

I had the pleasure of working with Beverly on her new stationery. The note cards are thermography printed on Waste Not Paper Luxe White paper (one of my new favorites!) with envelope liners made from Paper Source's Gold on Sea Green Mum's fine paper.

Liz and Sam's Save the Dates

Liz and Sam are getting married at a lovely ranch in Montana this summer. To set the tone for the weekend they wanted something that conveyed the rustic feel of the ranch setting but also portrayed an elegant wedding ceremony and reception. We came up with this horseshoe and floral motif to achieve both. The save the dates are letterpress printed on Crane Lettra 220 lb. paper in Pearl White. Rather than printing the return address we created a stamp that they can use over and over again.

"Up Fool's Hill and Almost Down" by Joe M. Berry

My grandfather wrote a book! The same grandfather that nicknamed me Mrs. Calabash. (See the story here). "Up Fool's Hill and Almost Down" by Joe M. Berry is a collection of stories detailing his upbringing during the Great Depression, his career practicing law, and every character he meets in between. Available on Amazon. Edited by my brother, Ethan Clanton, and cover designed by me.
