Hello friends! Happy March! March (to us) marks the long-awaited beginning of Spring. We can’t wait for the warm weather and the blossoming flowers!

We are also going to share monthly tips/advice regarding wedding stationery! This may be etiquette advice or timeline advice — really anything regarding the wedding stationery processor design!

This month, we want to share unique design mediums that can be incorporated into your wedding invitation suite or wedding day-of stationery.

Oil Pastel – This medium is a soft crayon-like stick that can be used as a drawing device. Oil pastels are made up of non-drying oil and wax binder. This medium creates a beautiful powder texture that adds a hand-drawn detail to your custom stationery artwork. Oil pastels are great for creating patterns.

Watercolor – Watercolor is a painting method where the paint is suspended in a water-based solution. Watercolor creates a very translucent look. Watercolor has become wildly popular for wedding invitation designs over the last few years. Watercolor is often used for custom illustrations — foliage, florals, borders, textures, etc.

Gouache – Gouache is an opaque watercolor medium. This medium is very similar to watercolor but slightly different. While watercolor shows through to the paper stock, gouache offers a more opaque look. Gouache is also often used for custom illustrations — foliage, florals, borders, textures, etc.

Are you interested in incorporating one of these mediums into your wedding stationery? Contact us! We’d love to hear your thoughts and get a custom quote started for you.

We’ll be sharing more tips/advice over the coming months (including unique design mediums).
