hello tenfold has a new look!

hello tenfold website

Oh you guys, it’s live, it’s live! With the help of programmer Eli Van Zoeren we did a big site update for Hello Tenfold, which includes the new logo, an updated look, and so much more. What more, you ask? Well! I’m so excited to tell you about it. (You’ll also notice in the coming days that Mint will have a new, simplified look to match)!

Slight side-story: September is not the usual time to make resolutions, I suppose, but these days I feel my life has a running theme. Blame it on our sweet little baby if you like, but I have decided that my life is in need of simplification. Of late I’ve devoured a fun (no, seriously, it was) Japanese book on decluttering and begun to empty my closets and my shelves. There’s a new, life-altering project in the works which I’ll be able to share this fall. And the new websites do relate to this, because I want to begin to hone-in on what (and who) I want my business to be. I see this as a long-term project but this fall I’m taking the first steps by creating a new collection of invitation designs for 2015 and continuing to work on my brand. The new website is easier to use and has a lot more information available online so that people can understand who Hello Tenfold is and what we do.

One of my favorite things about the new website is that you can now see, right here online, many of the customization options (like 75+ envelope liners and counting, ink options, papers, envelopes). Making all those tiny envelope jpgs was a big job, let me tell you, but wow is it great to be able to see the patterns all in once place, and hopefully convey how unique every invitation we print becomes.

We also added a section for Case Studies, where you can see some of my favorite custom projects, with the couples’ wedding photos alongside the paper goods, and the project’s story.

But maybe most exciting of all, we now make wedding websites! Wedding websites to match your wedding invitations! We are starting with just a few site layouts inspired by our couples’ favorite invitation designs. They’re completely customizable and affordable to boot. More info on those websites to come in another post.

For now, I would be so grateful if you would check out the new site and share your feedback. I hope it’s easy to use, has all the information you need, and that the new-site-bugs are few. Hooray!

studio dreams

Sometimes I dream of building a little studio to work in, maybe in the backyard, maybe (in bigger dreams) on some piece of property I’d own with mountains and a creek running through.
