Style Me Pretty

PosePrints was featured in Style Me Pretty!

Well, it was our wedding that was featured, but PosePrints-made stationery enjoyed its Style Me Pretty debut.

Our wedding paper “suite” wasn’t entirely cohesive, because we were set on a few “musts”:

  • A Craigslist theme for the Save-the-Dates
  • Letterpress for the invitations
  • PosePrints caricatures for the programs

Here is a photo of our Save-the-Date Magnets from the SMP post (It’s a long story, but my husband and I wouldn’t have met without the help of Craigslist!):

And here are our simple, modern letterpress invitations featuring the Durham Ranch barn — designed by me, printed by Alan Hillesheim:

Our beloved Wedding Ceremony Program, featuring caricatures of me, my groom and our bridal party was shared, too:

Thank you, Style Me Pretty! See the whole post — and all of the photos — by clicking here.

 

Real Weddings

Did you use PosePrints for your wedding Save-the-Dates, Bridal Shower Invitations, Bachelorette Party Invitations, Wedding Ceremony Programs or Thank You Notes?

If so, we are in the process of adding a “Real Weddings” section to our blog, and would be delighted if you would be a part of it.  PosePrints Real Weddings will feature just that: real weddings of our beloved customers who used PosePrints as part of their wedding days.  Not only will this be a way for us to share how our products reflect the wedded couple, but it’s also a way for you to compile a beautiful profile of your wedding photos and wedding day details. It will allow you to give much-deserved exposure to your wedding vendors, too!  Please click below the jump for an idea of what a Real Weddings post will look like.

To submit your wedding for consideration, please email Real_Weddings {at} PosePrints.com with the following:

  • Personal Info: Your name, your fiance’s name, your wedding date and venue
  • Photos: Send us 2-30 images of your wedding or event.  Images must be high resolution — at least 600px wide. (More photos you send = better chance we’ll post about your event!  Also, you do not need to send an image of your PosePrints purchase…we have that image.)
  • Description*: Your description of the event, including your inspiration, any DIY projects you’re proud of, how you got engaged, your favorite part of the event, why you chose your venue, etc.!  (*Send as much or as little information as you would like; we can write up the post if you simply want to include a list of details.)
  • Vendor Credits: A list of vendor credits, including website URLs where applicable.  We especially must have the photographer’s credit.

We would be honored if you would consider submitting your wedding details for review.  And as an added bonus, if we choose your wedding for a Real Weddings post, you will get 10 free PosePrints cards!

Let us know if you have any questions.

<3,

Jen & Denise, PosePrints Co-Founders

C Weddings Magazine

We are thrilled to be included in the stunning Spring 2012 issue of C Weddings Magazine!

Circled above, the original PosePrints’ Wedding Ceremony Program was created for Jen’s wedding in September, 2011, and is featured in the current issue of C Weddings Magazine (page 109!).  The lovely affair was designed by the amazing Laurie Arons, of Laurie Arons Special Events, and was held at Durham Ranch in St. Helena, California.

Jen designed all of her own wedding stationery, and both her Bridal Party Invitations and Bachelorette Party Invitations featured her caricature. (I know, it’s sort of weird for a bride to design her own shower invitations, but our company isn’t exactly big enough for orders to go unnoticed by the Founders.  And she wanted PosePrints, okay?!)

When it came to the actual wedding day, however, she wanted to be more discreet with the family-biz-promotion — you know, because there’s probably a limit to the number of caricature products you should use for one wedding.  So she created the look-alikes of her bridal party for the inside of her Wedding Program, all printed inside a neat, tri-fold card with a pretty striped cover. (That also meant no bow-tying or hole-punching.  Bonus!)

After getting nothing but “how fun!” and “so unique!” and “I could tell who all of the bridesmaids were!” feedback on the programs, we decided to add them to PosePrints’ product line.

And here we are.  Click here to check out the different designs we offer, all of which are completely customizable — from colors and fonts to wording and caricatures.

Thank you, C Weddings Magazine!
