We're SO excited to share this sneak peak of a custom design we recently created for the lovely Katie and Gary. The concept was based on one of Katie's favorite childhood books, Katy And The Big Snow by Virginia Lee Burton. We just went nuts over the super detailed illustrations and knew her invite had to be something special!
Eunice hand-drew the illustrations and scanned them in to Illustrator where she created vector artwork and "mapped out" the details of the wedding suite (pun intended - hint, hint!)
Each ink color requires a separate plate and press run and Katie was able to meet with the printers and check in as the job progressed.
As each new color is added, the illustrations start to take shape with more detail and depth.
Katie and Gary met while on vacation in San Francisco and traveled to so many exotic locales that they knew they wanted a map to be central to their wedding invitation. With so many adorable icons and illustrations is hard to choose a favorite but we have a feeling Katie's a bit partial to the Disney World flamingo - Gary proposed in the park!
And voila! The finished invitation suite - a tri-fold map invitation and rsvp set alongside its literary inspiration!
Congrats and best of luck Katie & Gary!
