We recently completed a job for a new business, Red Soles Reborn. Crystal, the owner of Red Soles Reborn, takes shoes and gives them a completely new look with the use of different size and color Swarovski crystals. Like the Swarovski crystals we use on our stationery, she applies every single one by hand, one at a time. While her specialty is Christian Louboutin shoes, she can transform any shoes from ordinary to extraordinary. Our favorite part? While Crystal can re-create an existing shoe, the real fun is commissioning her to make something completely original!

The economy, what can we say, it isn’t all that great right now. However, good news! I just read that the recession is officially over…the only bad part, incomes keep falling.
With that sad bit of information in mind, we decided to create a line of wedding invitations for the cost conscious couple. Just because someone is on a tight budget, doesn’t mean they can’t have a beautiful wedding.
Our DIY line, available in our Etsy store, comes in two options. We can customize the text and colors and email the client PDF files so that they can print and cut the invites at home or a local print/copy shop. Certainly a very cost conscious option. Or, if the client prefers, we can flat print the designs for them on our 92lb, Savoy, 100% cotton paper. The result can be seen in these photos.
While we love letterpress, the process is certainly more costly and not everyone has that option. We also love that we can fit lots of color into these designs and use patterns that we typically would not be able to do with letterpress. We plan to do a number of designs for this line and will post them as we complete them.
As we try new ideas, we certainly welcome any feedback!
We thought it would be fun to do cards and coasters for all the boroughs in New York City. Being from Brooklyn, we started on that one first. We found some great old maps of the boroughs dating to the 1880s. We loved them so much that we redrew some of the images for our cards. So far, we have Brooklyn and Queens drawn and printed on flat greeting cards. We hope to finish up the Bronx, Manhattan and Staten Island in the near future. We also plan to get plates made of each of these designs in order to make letterpress coasters from them. We think they would make great gift sets. These cards can be purchased in our Etsy store.

We’ve been working with Swarovski crystals on our wedding invitations to add a little extra sparkle! Obviously, crystals and shiny stuff are the first things you think of when you hear the word “wedding.” After love and commitment, of course. Take a look at some of the photos below – we’ll be posting more photos as we order and experiment with different colors and sizes.
As we might have mentioned before, many of our designs are based on our travels. While the British might not be know for their lovely weather, they can certainly lay claim to one of the most amazing looking flags, as well as one of our most favorite dogs, the English Bulldog! These folded note cards are perfect for anyone who loves England as much as we do. Check back soon to see all the other countries we plan to celebrate!
