When Katie Grabner reached out for me in need of new letterpress stationery pieces for her interior design brand, Clagett Designs, I knew it was a match made in heaven. Her design portfolio is overflowing with inspirational images and a particular penchant for blue & white accent pieces that I adore!
For this project, we created branded letterpress stationery that Grabner can use to mail notes to her Clagett Design clients. A handwritten note can be so impactful with your clients, and I cannot recommend it to brands and businesses highly enough! Also, I letterpress printed business envelopes for Grabner to mail invoices with smaller return envelopes for client payments. This is a thoughtful and well-branded touch for businesses that receive check payments from clients.
The letterpress business stationery incorporated Clagett Design’s branding with the business name flanking the logo. It was printed in 2-color letterpress on 100% cotton cardstock. The ink was custom mixed by hand to match Grabner’s brand colors which are two complementary shades of blue. On the envelopes, the return address was letterpress printed with the logo as well. To tie it all together, I incorporated envelope liners with a blue & white floral pattern that we a good fit with Grabner’s existing branding elements.
For the business envelopes, we used #10 business envelopes to fit invoices printed on letterhead. These were letterpress printed with Clagett Design’s return address. I sourced a smaller envelope that could comfortably fit inside the larger one. We were able to find this second envelope in a light blue that coordinated with Grabner’s brand colors. For this reason, the address on each envelope was printed in the complimentary darker blue shade.
I love working with brands and businesses on tangible letterpress stationery pieces that help to bring their business to life. If you’re interested in items for your business, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to hearing from you!
