Loo Loves I Letterpress

One of my most favorite things to do is to write notes and drop them in the little, blue mailbox down the block. I indulge in Etsy's ability to send to my doorstep loads of new, witty, gorgeous, luxe stationary. There's something so timeless about choosing just the right ink pen to match the notecard and pausing a minute to send a little encouragement and a bit of love to someone else's mailbox. Who doesn't get excited when they see a handwritten note tucked amongst the mail?! Sure makes all those bills in the box a little more acceptable. During the move to the studio, the Lizzie Loo logo underwent a little redesign. I wanted something even more simple, more classy and more complete. Something that spoke to my own simple, clean style. I knew I wanted to have some really sweet stationary and some gorgeous, letterpress cards to show off the new look, too. It didn't take me to long to connect one of my favorite vendors, Simple Song, with my need for a redesign and stationary creation. I had been purchasing cards from her for quite some time and was always in love with her designs and packaging.

Suann was most amazing in offering up many *perfect* logo concepts. In the end, nothing felt as right as a clean up and slight variation of the logo that got Lizzie Loo started. That logo has since been applied to everything around here, but my most favorite pieces are the letterpress business cards and notecards. Everytime I grab one from the secret hiding place (I covet them, just a little bit) I want to cuddle with it. The paper is so soft and the letterpress is so perfect.

Check out Suann's post on the Design Sponge blog. She shows the process in pictures. Makes me want to hug my stationary even more!! The care that goes into this timeless process is crazy.

Suann makes the most decadent wedding invitation suites. Check them out on her design site. She also just planned the most adorable birthday party for her son, Ike. Check out the party here.

Happy Wednesday! Send a note to someone you love.
