Meet Dustin Schrecengost and see his Fabulous Announcement

Here at Ann Elizabeth we're a lot more than a one trick pony. Sure, we love designing wedding invitations, but we also have lots of fun with other design projects as well. Our client, Dustin Schrecengost, recently joined the staff of skilled professionals at Blakemore Real Estate as a licensed realtor. Our friends at Blakemore Real Estate sent Dustin our way to design and print an announcement for him and we like it so much that we thought we'd share.

We started with a gold and black color palette and developed the announcement from there. The whole announcement pulls out of a nifty pocket and there is a removable business card attached to the announcement. The business card itself features a matte coating and a shiny gold foil logo. So, even when the announcement is long gone, Dustin can rest assured that his business card alone still packs a punch.

Have you made a business move lately? If so, sending a business announcement of the change is a social grace that your clients are sure to appreciate. Anything from a move of location, expanding office space, moving to a new company, a new phone number any business transition is noteworthy. More than anything else, it keeps your name in front of your clients and lets them know that you care enough about them to keep them in the loop.

And finally, we don't endorse just anybody around here (we tend to be pretty persnickety about that kind of thing) but if you're in the market you need to check out Blakemore Real Estate. http://www.blakemorerealestate.com/

In all my dealings with professionals, I must say that Blakemore Real Estate really pays attention to the details and their customer service is pretty incredible. These guys really know what they are doing.

So enjoy Dustin's announcement and think about sending a business announcement of your own. It's sure to instantly make you look like a pro.

 

 

 


Jewel Tone Junkies

Believe it or not fall is upon us, which means it's time for all you winter brides to be getting serious about your invitations.

Today's post is to bust the myth that a winter wedding = lack of color. Not this year, honey! Not you.

So, to help motivate you, I thought I'd put together some fabulous winter inspiration for you: jewel tones.

Here at Ann Elizabeth, we love the idea of jewel tones for a winter wedding. These are such regal-looking colors, and a lot of depth can be achieved using lustrous fabrics and paper.

We love this look, and hope you will, too!

Ooo-La-la! Our French-a-licious Inspiration Window at Lily and Iris

If you've been to Lily & Iris lately, you would have noticed our fabulous, orange display in their Inspiration Window. If you haven't, this post is for you, because the display recently came down. We loved that hint-of-vintage feel so much that we couldn't resist giving you one last look! Check it out for yourself!

 


Two words: Art. Deco.

We were blown away at the intricate beauty of Ceci NewYork's Art-Deco inspired wedding invitation suite. Stunning. Check it out:

We love the pairing of gold, white, and black. This invitation suite is the perfect combination of glitz & glamour, and a nod to masculinity through the structure of the classic Art Deco font. The script font is a nice addition as well; it brings an elegance to the art deco motif. Fantastic!

Thinking about an Art Deco themed wedding? Here's a great place to start. Check out this article by the style expert for the featured wedding, Natalie Dene-Luke of Intique & Co Styling House.
