Oblation Papers and Press

Conquering the mountain of wedding gift thank you notes requires a bit of strategy. Our friends at Oblation Papers & Press advise a plan that allows you to handle this task graciously.

Many gifts will arrive on your doorstep well before your wedding day. Start sending your thanks as soon as possible. Dividing the task into many small sessions will keep your workload manageable, and your notes will stay sincere and fresh. In case you need more convincing, you’ll save 10% on personalized thank you notes by ordering them together with Oblation Papers & Press letterpress invitations.

And finally, we believe that using stationery that you love makes note writing a much more delightful endeavor.

Power Palette January 9, 2008

Power Palette | Studio Olivine + Quince Events

The new issue of Oregon Bride Magazine features a really great article on the non-traditional color choices of modern brides. The five-page spread features floral designs by Quince Flowers & Events and letterpress designs by Studio Olivine, two of our Perfectly Pearl participants. The highlighted color palette of turquoise, red and green is a really bold color choice, but in capable hands the result is stunning.
