Pets! Weddings! Pets on Wedding Invites!

A new collection has finally made it to the website.  It’s a bit unusual in that you can see it as a collection in it’s own right or as something to add to another design.  Also there are additional charges depending on the amount of time it takes to do the illustration which in this case can be highly individual.

But why not make your wedding invitations and stationery something highly personal by making your pet a part of it.  Pets are often an important part of the family and every day life but are not always present at the wedding so why not include them on your stationery in some fashion.  Whether it’s as the main attraction on the cover, or an interesting detail on an inner page or reverse.  Once done the illustrations can also be supplied as a separate print.  Expect to see more examples in the future.  Price depends on the time it’s likely to take and it’s always easiest to illustrate from a photo that’s as close to what you want to see as an illustration eg in pose and posture. Why not contact me (Nathan) to discuss at contact@artemisstationery.co.uk

Unusual Wedding Fonts

Unusual Wedding Fonts

There are some unusual fonts out there and whilst as far as fonts go these fonts are not the most unusual. In the context of weddings I think they would make very unusual wedding fonts for use on wedding invitations and stationery. I make bespoke wedding invitations and stationery at Artemis Stationery so I am always on the look out for the new and unique fonts to use.

Unusual wedding fonts

The selection of four fonts we’re looking at are similar to each other yet also quite different. Archistico and Cabinsketch are both fonts which look like someone has drawn an outline of the letters and then done a bit of filling in though with quite differing results. FFF Tusj is similar but done in a much more skill fully sketched manner. Then there is Gructshaded, similar idea but where it’s the shading that’s filled in to give a 3D effect.

Examples

So what can you use these fonts for? Well as you’ve probably guessed it’s a hard sell using them if you’re going for all out elegance. But as stated if you’re looking for something more unusual these fonts could be for you.

Where the style of the invite is more casual or you don’t want something that looks like solid type these fonts could do really well. For example I used one of these fonts the other day with a beach hut design on the blog. They can also work where you want your stationery to look exactly like the style these fonts are. With FFF Tusj it looks like it’s carefully drawn and so could be done where the stationery is meant to look sketched. The other fonts remind me of school and doodles in your work books. To show this I’ve also done a quick example of a school style save the date using some of these fonts.
