a little sneak peek…

Posted in wedding invites tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 12:11 am by meant to be sent

so as i mentioned, i am so excited to finally be working on some super fun new designs for a whole new line of mtbs stationery albums… i have been thinking about it for about a year and a half now, so it’s about time!

each pattern is inspired by a texture, fabric or material, like herringbone or moroccan tile, or a style like nautical, preppy or mod…

here is a sneak peek at just a few of the patterns that i am working on and will be incorporating into my new line. lots more to come! all will be available in several fun color combos and of course will be part of fresh new stationery designs!

interested in wholesale/carrying my new line in your retail shop or online store? just email! :)


big big things happening at mtbs!

ok, i just can’t contain myself any longer. there are so many new and exciting things in the works at mtbs i can hardly stand it :) that being said, i can’t help but give a teeny tiny sneak peek at what i am up to…

eeeeek! ok, branding makes me happy (if you couldn’t tell!) and has always been a passion of mine. i just love the idea of creating a whole new look and bringing a brand to life with its own unique personality…logos, color schemes, typography, identity systems, style guides…i love it all!

starting in november, i will begin offering branding packages for small businesses…at first i will be taking on just a small number of branding clients, and will open up more slots in the new year. so if you are interested, step right up! email me for package pricing, to reserve your spot and get the ball rolling. (and get a special discount for the first group of clients too!)

and speaking of branding…you will soon see a fresh new look for meant to be sent too! it’s been a few years and is time for a bit of a polishing. so stay tuned for that plus a whole new site and blog design too! hoping to launch all of that fun stuff in early 2011!

i am SO excited to be adding wholesale to my business!! it is a whole new world that i cannot wait to explore. i am in the process of designing all sorts of fresh new pieces for my stationery albums and eventually packaged cards and DIY kits too! if you are interested in preliminary wholesale information email me for details and more info about what i have planned as well as anticipated launch dates. { a little hint } you can count on bold colors, fun patterns, layers, texture, sweet details and TONS of fun typography…

along with a new blog design, i will also be adding space for a small amount of ads for all of you fabulous wedding vendors out there! more information to come on that…but of course feel free to email me any time if you are interested!

and, there’s even more in the works! but for now…back to regularly scheduled programing…up tomorrow :: tuesdayshoesday, of course!
