More Custom Card Boxes

This is such a busy season and we apologize for the lack of blogging :( Here are a few card box orders that were recently completed. That dark purple is a popular color for April, we've had 120 boxes EASY for mid April with the same color. Granted the accent colors are different but the purple is very purdy :)

Lacey D.- Custom Logo Order

So Lacey ordered some logos the other day and knew exactly what she wanted. We did a logo in the past with an eiffel tower and she wanted the same setup but replaced with the empire state building and in two different color combos. No problem. She was also hoping to have a logo with the last initial and incorporating the unique (and GORGEOUS may we add) shape of her engagement ring. We love unique requests!

Lesley R. - Custom Stationery (35th Birthday)

Denim & Diamonds.... what a fabulous theme! Lesley came to us to custom design a few things for her much anticipated 35th Birthday Bash. On the list: card box, custom logo, tented placecards, table numbers, thank you cards and envelope seals. Our pleasure!

Some Recent Work

Once again we have fallen victim to our busy schedule and have not blogged in a couple days. Busy busy bees. Here are just some of the items that have been underway and/or completed.

Tuesday, March 17, 2009

Francesca S. - Custom Card Box

When Francesca placed her order, she specifically requested her card box to be the same as another one we had done (the same one actually as our Platinum Wedding bride, pic on the left). She wanted to omit the use of black though and leave out the large diamonds. The garland was replaced with a ribbon/buckle but still scattered throughout the box. We love duplications because they always seem to come out better than the original :)

Jacquelyn K. - Custom Stationery

As promised, we are posting the other elements of Jacquelyn's order (original table # post below). Her programs, placecards & table numbers are currently in print and her card box is scheduled for this week. So that element we are missing today, but we wanted to show off all her other goodies!

Ella G. - Custom Card Box

Diamonds, diamonds, diamonds! Completed yesterday was this stunning card box for Ella and it just had to be showcased. Draped with 3 shades of diamonds (clear, lavender & purple) and loads of rhinestones, it'd be hard for anyone to walk by this piece and not take notice. She opted for the extra large diamond (Specialty Item) and even downgraded from a 8-10 to a 5-7 so that it could be strung with more diamonds. We love it, simple as that!

Margie - Custom Logo Order

Getting married in North Carolina, in the moutains, on the lake, in the summer. Sounds like a beautiful setting for a wedding! Margie placed her order last night for some logos and we were thrilled to do them. Their colors: navy, silver, hot pink with a little apple green. Love it! She did request that one logo be creative in working in the location elements. Her designer came up with something truly unique and amazing, we hope she loves it! Here are the proofs....

Lauren P. - Custom Card Box & Menu/Donation Card

Today we wanted to showcase Lauren's order. We have blogged about her menu/donation cards prior, but now her card box is finished and was designed to coordinate with her cards (and of course the rest of her wedding), so we wanted to display them together. Her box came out absolutely gorgeous. She opted for 2 Swarovski brooches that are so beautiful, they make the box stunning. Nothing wrong with some bling! :)

Jahaira F. - Custom Card Box

We TOTALLY forgot to put this up! Who knew teal and golds looked so great together. We wanted to show it off because in 4 years of business, this is the first time we have done this color scheme. It's exciting when that happens!

FOR IMMEDIATE SALE: Black & Ivory $100


Up for grabs is a black & ivory card box, made with various satins, and adorned with two black rhinestones: very elegant very chic. The box follows our standard price list so this 3-Present is $100 + s/h. If you are interested, please use the contact form on our website to let us know you would like to buy it. An invoice will then be sent to you and payment must be made within 24 hours otherwise it will automatically be offered to the next person.

Heather H. - Custom Wedding Stationery

Currently in the design process are menus, table numbers and tented placecards for Heather and her soon to be hubby, Jeff. The theme of their wedding is the very popular, very elegant damask: black, white with a pop of raspberry. That's always an awesome combo. Although these aren't the final drafts (we still need her actual menu), here they are to look at :)

Courtney H. - Custom Card Box

Featured today is a card box made for Courtney that we wanted to show. On her form she specifically noted 3 boxes from our gallery that she loved. So what did we do? We combined elements from all of them to make her card box.
A hybrid if you will.
Fabulouso. This color combo always rocks! Nothing like the formal black and white with a pop of color to shock the system :)

Shanna C. - Custom Card Box

Beach weddings are here! This card box was just completed for Shanna and it's so fabulous, we just had to show it off. She mailed to us a collection of cardstock swatches that she is using throughout her wedding and they were just gorgeous! With two shades of sea foam, to shades of browns, bronzes, champagne and diamond white, it was very impressive. Using that many colors on one card box can get very very busy, so she requested that champagne and brown be the dominant colors with sea foam as the accent. Great choice of colors, really, you have to see the color palette to appreciate it.

Well here you go Shanna we hope it accents your wedding beautifully!

Alison C. - Custom Logo Order

Recently we received an order from Alison for some custom logos. Although she didn't have a specific look in mind, she did have some specific elements that she wanted to see in them.

1. Shades of purple and gray/pewter
2. The initials to be joined
3. One of the logos to be vintage and fancy, with scripts
4. Something fun. Her fiance races cars and she was hoping something could be created around that.


Just Showcasing Some Card Boxes

We didn't get a chance to post yesterday and today is just as crazy, but we wanted to throw up some pictures of a few recently completed card boxes to let you know we're still here

Card Box Availabilty Change!

We like to keep our customers up to date on the availability for custom card boxes, as we know everyone doesn't check the order form or gallery every day.

AVAILABILTY: currently booked up until events for August 14th and beyond.

As we always say, order as soon as possible and lock in your order. Our availability changes at the blink of an eye (i.e. we went from April-July in one jump).

You may think you have time to order, but don't take it for granted. We have had so many emails and phone calls saying that they wanted and intended on ordering, but thought it was too soon. It's NEVER too soon. To avoid rush fees or the chance of not getting one at all... order as soon as you can!

Jacquelyn K. - Custom Table Numbers

Along with a card box and custom programs, Jackie & Keith also ordered custom table numbers from us. We are in the process of nailing down the final look, which will also carry over into the program, but we wanted to show all our readers the latest proof!

Keya F. - Custom Card Box

Keya came to us and knew exactly how she wanted her card box to look. We just took her specifics and made it into a tangible product :) Her card box was created with silver metallic and pink fabric and decorated with the frequently requested polka dots and stripes. You can't go wrong with stripes and dots!
