hello tenfold custom wedding invitations

On my desk this week are two letterpress invitations, one of my favorites from the Collection, and a foil stamped custom suite for a fall wedding. So much black, white, and gold this year. I love it.

hello tenfold wedding websites!

I am so excited to show a peek of our newest product — wedding websites (mobile friendly, of course)! I’ve been tossing around the idea of websites to match Hello Tenfold’s invitations for years, and finally decided to give it a try. We’re launching soon with 3 sites based on 3 of our most popular designs. Woohoo!

branding inspiration

Since Juna was born, I’ve spent a lot more time at home and a lot less time in the studio. While I love these baby days, it’s been hard to have comparatively so little time at work. One thing the time and space away has given me is a huge appreciation for my business, my clients, and the privileges that come from being self employed.

Unfortunately, I never put much energy into the brand of Hello Tenfold. Over the past year I’ve been reflecting on my vision for the business, and set some goals to make those visions reality. I don’t have much free time, and so the brand is something I see developing further over the next year or so, as time permits. But the first step was to create a new logo (I showed a peek here) and over the last month I’ve been working hard to give a little facelift to the Hello Tenfold website and to Mint. It will be launching soon! In the meantime, here’s some of the inspiration I’ve been gathering.

fern wedding invitations & DIY options

fern wedding invitations by hello tenfold

Gatsby’s gone green! I love this take on our Gatsby Border wedding invitation — the swirls remind me of fiddle ferns, and it looks great in green. At the bride’s request we used vintage botanical illustrations to create the custom envelope liners. By the way, this bride will be assembling her envelope liners herself — something we’re happy to do for any invitation order. It helps keep the cost down without losing the addition of a bold pattern. Assembly is easy, just takes a little time. Here’s a video I send to brides for DIY envelope liners.

assembly days

hello tenfold envelope liners

One thing I love about my job is the variety (and, I admit, I love doing most of it myself). I love being in front of the computer, sending emails, making edits for clients, and hopefully finding a few spare minutes to create new designs or products. And then I love heading across the street to a coffee shop to assemble a bunch of envelope liners. I love the days when I’m running around between printers, the mail shop, the fabric store, and back again.
