Boo!

Cue the creepy haunted house music, the Halloween cards have arrived. I'm swooning over the black princess skull. It's the perfect mix of creepy and beautiful. What do you think? Do you send Halloween cards out? Growing up me and my sisters (all six of them) used to get cards from our grand parents and other close relatives. That's always a nice little memory for me. Halloween isn't a big family get together kind of holiday like Thanksgiving or Christmas, but sending a card is a nice way to still celebrate with everyone you love. I've got a stack over here waiting to be addressed.

A Wedding in the Mountains

I've been sharing little bits and pieces of this project for a while now on Instagram and am excited to finally be able to share the whole project on the blog today. I've been working with a wonderful lady on these for her and her fiancé. They are getting married on a mountain top in California and it sounds absolutely magical. They wanted to incorporate their ceremony location into the design of their invitations, so I worked to come up with a few custom concepts for them.

I really loved creating the hand lettered type design below. On the left is the inked sketch and next to it is the concept design. It's always amazing to me how much the inked drawings come to life once they on the computer and colored. It gives me the opportunity to adjust the layout and spacing and really define the elements that should stand out. 

Ultimately we ended up using the first sketch for a simple, clean layout perfect for their day. Below is the final invitation. I had so much fun working on these and just love how they turned out. I don't take on a lot of custom wedding designs each year, but am so glad I had the opportunity to work on this one. Congratulations to Jane & Ed!

New Cards + New Adventures

Very excited to announce another batch of new cards now available in the shop. I've been as busy as a little bee lately with more new cards on their way, a full line of holiday cards almost ready for release (hooray for getting a head start this year), custom branding designs and custom weddings. I've also been working on refining the HPC brand and ferociously going after my 2013 goal of taking HPC wholesale.. meaning that HPC products would be sold in stores. How exciting would that be? The day I make my first wholesale order is going to be a day of celebration. But for today, we have brand new editions in the shop. And I have to admit, the new Holla card is my all time favorite thing I have ever created, ever.

I hope you like them!

Holla

Husband & Wife

You win.
I've thought a lot about this and have come to a conclusion. I was wrong.

 

So.. yeah that happened.
Really sorry about that.

Mother's Day Cards

The Mother's Day Greeting Cards have arrived in the shop. All of the cards are standard A7 greeting card size (5x7) and printed on a heavy recycled card stock in a speckled cream color. Cards come with an A7 envelope in purple, blue or natural, depending on the design. HPC has recently invested in a wonderful printer that we are going to be printing our own greeting cards on. I was a little nervous about making this move, but after seeing the amazing quality of the test prints I'm so excited about it.

Mom You Were Always Right
Inside: I finally said it. Happy Mother's Day!
