As you may know, I have been letterpress printing in my spare time for a few years now. I have always been fascinated by the beauty of letterpress ever since hubby and I decided to get married (all of 5 years ago). When we moved to Los Angeles, I took my first introductory letterpress class at the Armory in Pasadena. It was a short course, providing students with a quick taste of letterpress printing. I didn’t really get deep into it until I met Gerald Lange when I signed up for more classes at Otis. Gerald is a master printer extraordinaire, founder of the Bieler Press, expert digital letterpress printer, and teacher of letterpress printing and all things print and typography at Art Center and Otis.
Anyway, after printing Christmas cards and making various invitations for any friend or acquaintance who I could persuade into wanting letterpressed cards, I have decided to offer letterpress wedding invitations in addition to wedding flowers! I initially thought I’d call this new venture The Flower Lab Press, but after Wren died, I decided to call it Tiny Wren Press (a cousin of The Flower Lab).
So if you are interested in “one stop shopping” for the overall look and theme of your wedding – what better way than to have your flowers coordinate with your invitations? Afterall, the invitations are what your guests will see first when it comes to the design of your wedding – the first impression. And then when they come to your wedding, the flowers will further dictate your wedding’s theme so it all comes together in a beautiful cohesive entity!
Unfortunately, tinywrenpress.com isn’t quite completed yet. However, I signed up for some featured advertising on Wedding Wire: www.weddingwire.com/biz/tiny-wren-press-santa-monica/d7595d0f53264397.html
I’ll post more designs as I complete them…
In the meantime, a general pricing guideline:
