remember to say thank you!

Writing a proper thank you note, on paper and mailed with a stamp, really warms my heart. I love sending them as much as I love being a recipient.

When clients proactively add this item to a wedding suite, or give them as gifts to others, I have lots of fun imagining all the people whose days will be brightened when they open the mail to a hand-written smile from someone who cares.

Here's a recent set, designed as a wedding gift given to a bicycle-loving couple in the Pacific Northwest (printed by the always-amazing Margaret of Nightingale Handmade):

Angela & Dean: a late Summer wedding near Santa Barbara

Ah, the beauty of letterpress! When a couple has the hookup, the final products are that much more exciting... featured below are a few of my favorite images from Angela and Dean's intimate San Ysidro Ranch wedding, a warm September evening with close friends and family among the lavender fields and olive groves in beautiful Santa Barbara county.

Every detail was thoughtfully selected to create a warm and welcoming event. An excellent team of vendors (see full list below photos), including the bride's friend at her local letterpress studio, helped bring this vision to fruition. Truly, one for the books!
