We took the photo in my parents backyard with both of our dogs, which made for some hilarious out takes. My dog Walter (the sheepdog) hates other dogs so having Dave’s dog Marley (the Wheaten) there did not please him at all. We did manage to get a few good pics of the four of us. So here they are, our modern/dog inspired take on American Gothic. We had them printed at vistaprint.com on linen paper and they turned out lovely.
We’ve still got lots of save the dates for next week, so be sure to check back in. Also, don’t forget my party is tomorrow, 6-10p, so please stop by 303GRAND if you’re in the neighborhood!

My fiance and I have gotten lots of compliments on our save the date (which we designed in Photoshop, and had a graphic designer friend “fix up”.

Hi there! I just saw your post requesting STDs for another save the date week and wanted to send in the one my fiance and I designed for ours. I came up with the design, and my fiance Anthony hand drew everything including the text, then used Illustrator to tweak and color.

My fiance Nate is a musican and growing up as a child of the ’80s, I absolutely loved mix tapes. I thought this would be the perfect way to get everyone excited for our wedding (and to realize that we’re aiming for fun, not total formality.) My friend Skott Johnson of InkHabit design (www.ragejohnson.com) put these together for us based on my idea and he designed our invitations as well. He’s a talented graffiti artist, so I wanted him to use his own handwriting for the label and the back side of the cards. We also made minor changes to the actual front of the tape: We changed the red box at the bottom to say NYC/09 and decided to write “continuous signal” rather than the “Normal Bias…” it said. I attached the original photo of the tape to show you the changes we made.
We got these printed online at VistaPrint (www.vistaprint.com) for a steal! They were $47.78 total with shipping and tax for 250 postcards. People absolutely loved them and everyone says they’re still hanging on the refrigerator because they’re so cute.

Here are some save-the-dates I designed for a darling NYC bride! I just loved her idea of incorporating antique keys. We are printing these digitally, but we’ll be gocco-ing her invites & RSVP cards. I’m in Raleigh, NC, where we’ve just had a 90-degree day- Jen’s colors are a refreshingly cool retreat for me!
