WHY WE LOVE CUSTOM ARTWOK

August 22, 2022

One of our favorite elements to incorporate into stationery design and more is custom artwork. Artwork, when created with the right team, is incredibly versatile and can be used in so many ways and so many places.

SKETCH TO LETTERPRESS
The most obvious thing to do with a hand drawn sketch is to letterpress it on your invitation or print in the vast variety of stationery options created throughout the planning process.

SKETCH TO FOIL PRINTING
Similar to letterpress, foil printing is another way to get creative with custom artwork. For the piece shown below, we knew we wanted each element of the building to be a different color and therefore had the sketch created in layers. The finished product was playful and elevated.

SKETCHES TO WATERCOLOR
Probably the most popular thing to do with sketches right now is add watercolor. For the below piece, our artist created sketches and then added watercolor which we used for maps, die cut invitation inserts and more.

Sketch to product

Pattern and product making is nothing new, but we just love using custom artwork to create products to pull the stationery into the wedding weekend. Here’s an example of taking sketches to watercolor to products for a wedding we created in Mexico:
