Alaya's custom monogram

I was so excited to get a custom monogram request on Etsy from new client Alaya, who was looking for a unique design to make into wax seals. How cool is that?

She scouted the old Custom Printables website and found the perfect frame for her initials, AD. We couldn't have been more pleased with the results!

Over the next few weeks, Custom Printables will be phasing out our old site and transitioning to our new entrepreneurial endeavor, Bull City Studio! Please bookmark the new blog and visit regularly!

Kim spent her thirtieth birthday in true style with a roarin' 20s theme! This custom invitation was designed especially for her in her signature colors of gold, red, black, and white. I can't imagine how much fun this party must have been!

We created a special matching monogram for Kim to add to her favors and decor.

Birthday invitation for Sadie

Has it already been a year? My "niece," Sadie, is turning 5 this year and my best friend Erin asked me once again to design her birthday party invitations. This year's theme: Fairy Tales! We went with a storybook theme featuring a scroll and narrative instead of the typical invitation text.

Melissa and Jared's Wedding

Have I got a wedding for you! Newlyweds Melissa and Jared just sent me some amazing photos from their May 12 wedding, for which Custom Printables designed a number of cards and signs, along with the wedding program. A fabulous couple, the Edwardses were married at Penn State University. Their custom monogram and colors were based off of their invitation. I am thrilled to share these pictures with you, courtesy of the bride. All of the pieces were printed by the bride, and the programs were mounted on purple cardstock (double-sided) for extra sparkle. It's amazing what a simple picture frame will do to snazz up the event!
