I have been slowly creating a new set of packaging for my photography business. I wanted something beautiful yet simple. I paired the turquoise in my logo with natural kraft tones, and I quite like the overall look that I ended up with.
First up, my half-sized kraft pocket folders. This one was stamped with a custom rubber stamp I ordered online.
Next, I actually sewed some simple CD sleeves from kraft paper. The top is cut out with a 2″ circle punch.
Below, my beloved new business cards. They were letterpressed by my friend Cynthia Lin at Lucky 8 Letterpress. They have a blind deboss pattern that will be more visible in another photo below.
The whole stationery/collateral suite.
Here’s a better look at the letterpress pattern on the business cards. Love the texture of the blind impression pressed into the classic cotton Crane lettra stock!
Below, my letterpressed flat notecards. I somewhat arbitrarily chose an A6 size. I think these will be perfect for little handwritten notes or thank you cards.
And finally, a better look at the blind deboss detail at the bottom of the flat notecards. Ahh love. Letterpress is such a beautiful art!
Thanks again to my friend Cynthia at Lucky 8 Letterpress for my great new stationery pieces! I got to peek in on Cynthia hand pressing these at a studio in Oakland, and I will soon post some behind the scenes photos of the process (either here online or perhaps on the Facebook page).
