reexamination & reflection

We know, we know…the blog has been a bit dead lately! It’s not due to a lack of work – in fact, we’ve been quite busy this past summer with some really exciting work. Our blog has been a great source of community discussion and we look forward to getting back into the routine of posting regularly – and we have some great stuff to share in the coming months!

In truth, we’ve spent much of the past year taking a serious look at our business and what we want out of it. For the last two years, we’ve had moments of uneasiness. We weren’t sure if we were just going through a creative block (it happens, unfortunately) or if we were tired of working with weddings specifically. We thought perhaps it could be the slow economy (which has certainly taught us a thing or two in itself).

Eventually though, we realized it really wasn’t any of those things. We had an unbelievable summer and had the privilege of working on some of our all-time favorite projects. These projects refreshed us and helped us realize we haven’t lost our passion for the wedding industry or, more importantly, for good design. One of the reasons we felt so refreshed was that we worked closely with individuals who are just as passionate for paper and design as us. They shared our style and design aesthetic, and the projects were truly collaborative. They trusted our expertise and recommendations and looked to us for guidance – and we had an absolute blast working with them.

Given this opportunity, we were able to reexamine and redefine who we are as designers and what we want from our company. We’ve redefined our goals and how we intend to reach those goals. We’ve retooled our processes and methods.

While a few things have changed, one thing that will stay constant is our commitment to good design and providing our clients with the best service and end-product possible.

A few updates we can share:

• We will be updating our wedding Studio Collection with additional designs and additional customization options throughout the year. We’ve already finished a couple of these designs and I can tell you they’re a lot of fun!

• Our package minimum for all custom invitation projects has increased to $1500.00. This new minimum isn’t a huge change (the majority of our clients invest that amount or more already in their packages). It’s our continued commitment to provide brides and grooms with great design and exceptional service for their investment.

• In addition to working with brides and grooms on wedding projects, we will also be placing more focus on working with businesses on corporate design projects. This is something we’ve done for years – but it hasn’t been at the forefront of our services. We have an especially unique perspective to help businesses in the wedding industry with their needs – more to come on this very soon!

• Our sketchbooks are out and we’re working on some fun new projects – stay tuned for more!

We understand that it is an investment to work with designers, and we strive to make sure that it is an expense well worth the cost. We look forward to continue to offer superior design services to all our clients, whether they are a newly engaged couple seeking invitations, or a business seeking a new image.

As mentioned in the beginning of the post, we are passionate not just about stationery design, but great design. PERIOD.

Lastly… oh, nevermind – what’s with all this seriousness? Let’s get back to the blogging fun!
