24 WEDDINGS IN 2014

At the start of this calendar year, I set out to print 24 weddings, increasing my output by 100% from the previous year. Here we are just into the sixth month of 2014, and I’ve surpassed my goal. I’m overwhelmed with gratitude for all of the people that helped me reach this point. The brides who trusted me with the task of announcing their special days, the friends who gave me creative control, the designers who inspire me each day to grow and learn. I loved being a part of each wedding in this way, to be able to capture the to-be-married personalities on paper. It was my joy, and I couldn’t have done it without you.

Special thanks to my amazing team of designers: Katie Hyatt of Signora e Mare, Sarah Ragan of Ragan House Lettering, Kelly Kinnaird, Holly Hollon, Anna Kate Coffey of Calabash Card Co., Jamie Akenbrandt of Little Birdee Studios, Abby Steverson, Anna Eidson, Dan Gavin, Allison R. Banks, and Joe Montefusco. 

With more than half the year remaining, I’ve already got five more on deck to print, and lots of press-cranking energy to spare. Bring on the adventure.
