Designer Spotlight: Printerette Press!

I am just beyond excited to finally tell y'all about one of our newest albums: Printerette Press. When Whitney and I discovered Printerette Press at the National Stationery Show this past May, we squealed out loud in her booth as we poured through her album.  For reals, friends, this album is LEGIT. 

I'm totally ga-ga over just about everything that designer Catherine Polacek has put together for this gorgeous line.  The work is all beautifully printed by hand on her 100 year old press in St. Paul, MN, but it's her whimsical design and illustration that really spoke to me.  We had been looking for a hand-illustrated line to add to our collection of invitation albums and all the pretty in the Printerette book just took my breath away. 

I did a serious happy dance when I came upon her Lake of the Woods suite (immediately below) and her Redwood suite (2nd suite below).  Each illustration is done by hand and can be totally customized for your event/venue/whims. We've already had a couple customize one of these with illustrations of the camp where they'll be married next month.  It was mucho adorbs.

And, as if custom illustration on your invitations is SUPER RAD enough, Printerette went ahead and added watercolor detailing (digitally printed) to some of her letterpress designs. Watercolor + beautiful printing + totally fresh design = Awesomesauce.  Check out a few of the Printerette designs below and then schedule an appointment to come in and swoon over this album in person.  You will fall in love (all over again).
