Bloom Favorite- Print Possibilities

It seems these days that print designs have become a great way to make a complete wedding experience more cohesive. Its a great way to tie everything together, from the Save The Date several months in advance to favor tags for the gifts your guests will take home with them. Below are a few integrated design ideas. Using the same fonts, colors, logo or monogram, the overall feeling of the wedding can carry through every aspect. Share some of your ideas on how print can be used or how you plan to use it in your upcoming wedding!

This client wanted custom artwork of her daughter, dog and cat for her holiday cards this year. With photos of each character, I combined the drawings, scanned them and colored them in Photoshop. I used some vectors to create the scenery and greenery around them. Let me know what you think.

A Bloom favorite... Cupcakes!

I've seen a huge trend in serving cupcakes at weddings rather than a traditional cake. Though I think there are merits to both, the thought of all the exciting print components that can be combined with a cupcake display are really exciting. Logos, flavor tags, station signs, think of all the possibilities. I have had a client whose baker used a monogram we designed for their wedding on their cake, it turned out great. (I'll try and get a picture from them to share). I think cupcakes lend themselves nicely to small accent decor, and I love seeing this trend!

Shark Party!

This client wanted a short run of custom invitations for her son's first birthday party. Her husband and daughter had already decided that not only was it going to be an under the sea theme but a Shark Party! She wanted a friendly looking shark and the blue/green color scheme, other than that she didn't have any specific style or design guidelines. Heres the final product we came up with, what do you think?

Pink and Brown Butterflies

My friend and neighbor approached me about baby announcements for her new little girl Addison. WWith this adorable picture of Addison in her pink dress, it leant itself nicely to the pink and brown color scheme the client had decided on when she found out she was having a girl. With Strawberry envelopes and a design based off a little boy baby announcement I did a while back, the butterflies and strawberry satin ribbon were the perfect adornment to this 5 x 7 announcement.
