Our Shiny New Wedding Stationery Range hits the road!

Ok so the blogging once a week goal slipped quickly, but still I’ve just about made it to twice in 1 month, so that’s still a big New Years’ tick in my book! Anyway I have an excuse, we have been very busy bees at CL.AM HQ focusing on expanding and jazzing up our existing Wedding stationery range, ahead of a busy wedding fair season.

After a very positive reaction to our small wedding collection in our 1st year, culminating in a super exciting ‘Best Newcomer’ nomination by the lovely team at Perfect Wedding Magazine, we have decided to immerse ourselves in all things W-Day. We have not one, but three new design collections to share with you today… soooo drum roll please; introducing BOHEMIA, DECO and MARBLED!

MAIN-BOHEMIA SPRING-FOLDED1 SPRING-FOLDED2 SPRING-FOLDED3SPRING-SAVE-DATE

SPRING-RSVP

Bohemia was designed with the free-spirited festival, tee-pee, relaxed barn hoe-down-esque Wedding in mind. With a burst of pretty whimsical Spring florals, it is available in a luxury folding card with RSVP or as a flat double-sided invitation, along with co-ordinating Save the Date, RSVP and Evening Reception invitations. Braids and floral beards optional…..DECO-MAINDECO-INVITE

If you’re planning to be the bridal equivalent of Daisy Buchanan then Deco is for you, in a striking monochromatic art deco inspired print. This double-sided elegant design is the perfect way to announce your 1920’s inspired speakeasy of a day; cocktails and vintage champagne coupès obligatory! Co-ordinating Evening reception, RSVP and Save the Date invitations coming soon….

MARBLE-MAIN MARBLE-CLAS MARBLE-SAVE-DATE-CLAS MARBLE-RSVP-CLAS

We must admit we have fallen hard for the resurgence of marbling, its flowy, tonal, crafty organic wonder takes us right back to being a teen in the 90s, and a time of carefree youth. In fact this design was directly inspired by some vintage marbling of my own from the actual 1990’s-practically antique! Reworked here in dreamy breezy blues, our supercool double-sided Marbled design is a breath of fresh air, available in a choice of 3 fonts with Save the Date and RSVP co-rds.

We are kicking of the Wedding Fair Season, unveiling our new and improved wedding range, by returning to the unique, modern vintage aesthetic that is the wondrous Chosen Wedding Fair at Bristol Paintworks this Sunday. We will then be continuing our alternative wedding fair tour at the following fab events: A Most Curious Wedding Fair in London and The National Vintage Wedding Fair in Manchester.

🍉 🍉 🍉 WATERMELON FEVER! 🍉 🍉 🍉

It seems we are not the only ones to have gone totally fruit-bowl frantic about the wondrous watermelon!Image

My initials spelled out in watermelon; I’m happy!

Literally everytime I step out the door this Summer, I’m faced with a watermelon waterfall of amazing fruity inspired products; from fashion prints on clothing, to tote bags, to plates, to bunting, to today’s discovery JUICE!…so we really can pretend to be Beyoncè writhing around on a beach sipping watermelon.

Sippin’ watermelon

It comes as no surprise to me that fashion, homewares, and everything in-between have fallen head over heels in love with this tropical fruit. For me the sight, smell and taste of a watermelon gives me a rush of countless fond holiday memories, it gives me that feeling that Summer Is Actually Here. In short (and I’m sure I’m not alone in this) watermelon’s=happiness.

I have been pretty low key with my watermelon purchases I’d say, and have frugally limited myself to printed hot pants, tote bag and playsuit to accessorise my handy handbag staple La Sandia notebook.

I even had the pleasure of customising a close friend’s baby daughters cot last week by adorning it with the CL.AM signature LA SANDIA and LIMONE prints, see the work in progress below. Proof that you are never too young to start a lifetimes obsession with the wonderful watermelon!

This summer’s emblem is most definitely our favourite fruit, the colour-popping, thirst quenching tropical LA SANDIA!

TEN MINUTE TYPOGRAPHY #7

We are feeling fruity this week, so this Tuesday’s Ten Minute Typo is inspired by our LA SANDIA design range, and our general obsession with watermelons! That brief glimmer of sunshine we experienced has got us dreaming of supping a watermelon margarita, while wearing watermelon hot-pants and eating, yup a thirst quenching slice of our fave fruit.

Ten Minute Typography #2

This week after looking into lots of possible styles of typography for our CL.AM Wedding Invites, which will be online and available to buy very soon, I came across this incredible typographic resource; http://viintage.com/album/vintage-typography-fonts-and-flourishes/
There’s so much good stuff on there I had to use it as the inspiration for our next 10 minute type doodle.
