Naomi Murrell greeting cards

Finally I can announce what we've been up to! For the past couple of months we've been working with the lovely Naomi Murrell to produce these gorgeous greeting cards. Naomi is one very talented lady residing in Adelaide. Her work includes wooden and perspex jewellery, screen prints, and canvas bags and cushions. We're excited that these new letterpress cards are part of her debut collection, A Little Love, which is featuring at the Life Instyle trade show this and next week.

I didn't get the chance to photograph all of the final printed cards together before they were shipped away, but the stack was quite big compared to what we're used to! 1,250 cards in all, it was quite a process to print them on Collie - especially at 38 weeks pregnant, and then again with a newborn baby!

You can find Naomi on her website and blog, and if you're interested in purchasing one of her designs, have a squizz at her on etsy.

As much as I absolutely love designing and printing wedding stationery, printing a wholesale job was a refreshing change in the studio, and we're looking forward to many more.

Sneak peek

Here's just a little sneak peek of what we've been working on in the studio for quite some time now. I'm very excited that the project will be completed very soon, but until then my lovelies, I can't show you just yet!

It's our largest print run to date, and we've found it quite refreshing to print large quantities of such beautiful designs. Stay tuned for the unveiling!

A great day at the Wedding Fair

It was fantastic to be able to talk to so many brides yesterday at the Hyatt Wedding Fair. I was surprised by exactly how many people visited the fair, much more than I remembered from when I was a bride-to-be. 

Our stand was manned by myself, Eessu, Adrian and our friend Claire who came to help out on the day. We found that a few people had heard of letterpress before, but most people hadn't, so it was a great opportunity let more people know about it. Overall, it was a very successful day. I loved being able to get so much feedback on our printing and designs, and see which invitations were the most popular. 

And Kynan was there to help too, but slept though most of it :)

Hyatt Wedding Fair, Canberra

You can catch Poppy at the Hyatt Wedding Fair in Canberra, this Sunday 5 July. 

We're thrilled to have been invited to this exclusive event. Personally, I'm looking forward to checking out all the beautiful dresses and goodies that the other suppliers have to offer (nothing beats wedding shopping, even when you're already married!).

If you're in Canberra, drop by and say hello!

Announcing the arrival of Kynan Glenn!

Ok, so we're a little late in announcing this on the blog, my apologies. But that's quite fitting, as Ky was 13 days late himself. It was quite a long day, which ended in a c-section. As a result, my recovery is taking it's time, so we haven't been online much lately. Sorry if you've emailed us recently and we haven't replied.
