Beer Hops Wedding Invitations: Preview My New, Fancy Paper!

After just a few weeks of being back in business, I've been able to successfully improve my beer hops themed wedding invitations. The new papers really enhance the looks and feel of these invites. The invitation cards and inserts will now be printed on gorgeous 280gsm textured card in a beautiful cream color. The postcards have also been upgraded, now printed on 350gsm card with a silky matte overlay.

Here are a couple little photos as a teaser. Updates to appear to my store tomorrow!

Vintage Beer Labels [Things I Like]

Now that I've re-opened my Etsy shop, and received my first orders (!!!), I've been finding new inspiration for new designs. Since brewers hops are the motif for my wedding invitations, I've been dreaming of other ways to creatively integrate beer into a wedding without sacrificing the class and sophistication that I wanted for my own event. So now I'm in the process of designing beer labels for home brewers and couples to use to affix to their favorite beverages.

I haven't worked out the kinks with the new designs yet, but I've found a few vintage labels that I thought were really beautiful. They are my inspiration for the new line of beer labels, coasters, and even another option for a beer-inspired wedding invitation suite. 

I'll post pics once the new line is ready to roll out. But for now, here are a few images that you might enjoy, too.
