Paper Love: Weliver Invitation

weliver
Love is a many splendored thing. However, when it’s proclaimed on paper, it is absolutely breathtaking. Take this example—a gorgeous wedding reception invitation created by our newly-wedded friends, Howard and Lauren of Nosh Creative.

Upon pulling the invitation from its transclucent envelope, you’ll notice four different layers. A thin laser engraved wood tag, by Artifacture is tied to a multicolored string that encircles a wide, illustrated belly band. Tiffany blue is printed on Neenah Environment Digital, 80 Text, PC100 White, Smooth for the band. Slide it off and you're greeted with intricate hand-lettering printed in black. The silver background was created by printing a gray screen on the metallic finish of Reich SHINE Digital, Pearl. The gorgeous hand-lettered text reaccounts the story of how Howard and Lauren fell in love. A krafty, little RSVP card printed on Neenah Environment, Desert Storm completes the set. Each paper element was printed digitally on a HP Indigo and has a unique personality of its own, but banded together they form a rustic elegance that’s hard to match! Sort of like…Lauren and Howard.

It's show and tell time. Take a look at this annual report. In-house designer at Austin Energy, Jorge Alvarado, chose French, Speckletone for the project.  It was printed entirely on a UV press. The cover utilizes two seperate greens, black and two hits of metallic silver - although Jorge says the second hit of silver was unnecessary. The cover is Kraft and the interior pages are four color process on Madero Beach. If you'd like to get a copy of your own, contact your O-K Paper Specification Sales rep.

Vibrant poster on French: Mind over scatter

02092012 img1

 The latest vibrant, limited-edition poster from French Paper was created for the Charles S. Anderson lecture that was held at Full Sail University in December. Renowned graphic designer Charles S. Anderson presented, “Mind over Scatter: cutting through the clutter, a vision for the future of design.” This insightful lecture covered an array of topics from thinking of design as a product versus a service to becoming a design entrepreneur. What a fantastic opportunity to learn from a graphic design icon. Of course, plenty of CSA designed French Paper goodies were served, and French Paper Company’s own Brian French even made an appearance. Want a copy for yourself?
