A couple weeks ago, I was asked by the talented ladies of Sakura of America, Hello Lucky! cards and Egg Press to participate in their fun and smashingly successful #write_on campaign, and so far it's been a blast for me, and amazing to see the online community's response. So many people across the country are heading to their local post offices or post boxes, or personal mailboxes, putting their flags up, and sending real life, tangible, gorgeous mail to the people in their lives. The photos on Instagram, the events that these pioneers have been putting on, and the discussions on every stream of social media have been a joy to follow.
I was also approached to write a blog post for the #write_on campaign detailing some tips and techniques for simple and effective ways to dress up your envelopes. This being prime wedding season as well, envelope and addressing discussions are definitely top of mind for me. But further than that, if you approach the front of an envelope as a little mini canvas, carrying some crucial information, it can be a really lovely way to stretch your creativity. Here are a few photos and snapshot moments from the post - and you can read it in its entirety over here.
FYI! For any brides-and-grooms-to-be, I'm currently taking on clients for the 2015 wedding season - whether you don't want the burden of writing down every single address and trying to keep it all in a straight line, or you want a unique and hand lettered and illustrative approach to your whole invitation suite, I'm here to make your gorgeous ideas come to life.
