Wyatt and Katie are two of Stephen's co-workers who have fallen in love and are going to get married this Fall (yay!). They are a super-fun couple that I have had the pleasure of getting to know since Stephen has worked at Saris.
Well, not too long ago, Katie asked me if I'd be willing to help her out with their Save the Date postcards. After I found out their color scheme of black, grey and magenta and their possible theme of bikes, I knew this was going to be a neat-o project.
I really wanted to screen print the postcards, but with our crazy purging and cleaning, and having potential buyers come through our house, I knew that was going to be a challenge. But I love challenges, so I surged ahead. Things got off to a smooth start, but then I realized for whatever reason my positives were different sizes. Doh! That won't make for accurate registration, that's for sure.
Other than that little hiccup, it was a pretty good print run. It was my first time printing two-sided, so I wasn't sure how the registration worked for that. After a lot of guessing and testing, I finally got the spacing right. It was a great learning experience. And, in my personal opinion, I think they turned out really good!
I was excited I got to throw in some of my hand-drawn type and an old-school tandem bicycle. Thanks, Wyatt and Katie, for this fun, creative opportunity!
