the sounds of the studio

Today we are singing to the sounds of the studio. Charlie is rolling and clanking, Herbie is humming and whooshing and together in their uniform printing we are bopping along to the sound of the beat!

Rubys new two minute "do".

Oh I forgot to show you the end results of Miss Rubys haircut which resulted in two pink ribbons and a doggie mohawk. The poor muffin, it lasted all of two minutes!!

On the plus side, her coat is now thinned out and ready for the warmer weather. Its tough being a Canadian doggie in the hot queensland sunshine, especially when you have to wear pink bows and all...

ryan and alice save the dates

Above is a beautifully fun save the date card we produced for Ryan and Alice who are Australians based on Singapore. Their wedding will be located at Palm Beach, Sydney and their theme will be tropical beach club.

Inspired by this gorgeous location we designed a Florence Broadhurst inspired shell pattern which feels just delightful printed. Coupled with simple contemporary typography and printed in a gorgeous banana leaf green we simply loved letterpressing this design!

beautiful beautiful magnolias

While I was in Sydney I was lucky enough to catch the tail end of my mums gorgeous magnolias. She has a great number of them scattered throughout their property and they would have to be one of my most favourite flowers ever.

Right now I have this crazy dream to live on 20 acres, with a scattering of cute black and white cows and a long winding crush gravel driveway (to be exact) which is lined with magnolias the whole way. Like mother like daughter I think... they are simply beautiful.

adventures in young blood land.

Ahh my lovelies, I must apologise, it has been a few busy days getting back into the swing of the studio after our little adventure down to Sydney for the Young Blood Designers Markets, and oh my, what a crazy few days it was.

Young Blood was a beautiful collection of 35 of Austalias leading emerging designers, coupled with the big old Turbine hall of the Powerhouse museum. But fill the space with several thousand eager buyers = utter chaos.

Oh dear, you poor possums who tried to visit us, we are so so so thankful for your efforts. Some of you we got to meet, others got sent home when the overcrowding became too crazy. But we so appreciate your efforts and wish we had got to meet you all. Your support of our little boutique is so very appreciated.

Amongst all the crowdedness this poor wee photo was all I managed to snap... but if you look close, you'll see some new ranges which will be launching in the next month or so!

And finally a very big thankyou to my sweet Mum who came and helped, where would I be without such a beautiful Mother??

anna & andrew wedding stationery

We have recently completed a wedding set for the super cute Anna & her husband to be Andrew. Inspired by their wedding theme of vintage romance and garden elegance we designed a very simple yet strikingly beautiful invitation.

Their reception is going to take place in the gardens of a beautifully manicured private residence, so we wanted to represent this casual yet elegant venue through the use of the botanical graphic. As their wedding is a fusion of two families this floral illustration also represents their growth and the journeys they will share together.

Printed on ivory paper in a very soft ice pink ink, coupled with a dark botanical brown, the colour combination was beautifully sweet and understated. We are so glad that they loved their invitations as much we did... and we were so touched to receive the sweetest little note from them...

Eagerly awaiting my wedding set,

I opened the box and my dreams were met

Invitations were perfect, just as I’d dreamed,

I owe it all to Alischa and her wonderful team.

Our journey for two is now about to start,

Thanks to beautiful paper and the letterpress art

Creativity, style & elegance – that’s you,

Bespoke Press we thank you for all that you do.

Anna & Andrew
