my friend becca got married last week [congrats!], and her wedding announcements were AWESOME. i knew she'd come up with something great since she's so creative, but these were perfect.
becca, a graphic designer, came up with the design and her fiancee hand-printed them on a kelsey 5x8" press. [ironically enough, the fiancee is an IT guy by day...i think he's got a good career in creative work ahead if he'd want to make the switch!] they had taken one of eva's letterpress classes last year at sycamore street press, but other than that this was their only letterpress experience! i think they did a great job.
the couple traveled extensively during their relationship, so the suitcase lists the names of all the cities they've visited. such a fun idea! plus, the orange ink matches their engagement photo perfectly.
