Custom Invitations and Stationery

Up until 7 or 8 years ago we did not license our artwork, but we did do a lot of custom wedding invitations and stationery. In 2005, an unknown company called Tinyprints, asked us if we’d like to be one of their first online stationery designers. They were setting up their system to print digitally and we had a lot of experience in digital printing from doing corporate collateral for so many years in Silicon Valley. As they say the rest is history. Tinyprints took off and so did our licensing business. Now we license to many different manufacturers from fabric, to dishes, to wall art but we still do the majority of our licensing in paper products and love it. Being a graphic designer, I think we will always have a love affair with paper. We don’t often do custom invitations anymore but if you can’t find that perfect wedding invitation or baby announcement or anything else give us a shout we’d love to help out! Here are a few custom projects we’ve done over the years. Also to see some of our corporate work head on over to our corporate site, E and I...

National Stationery Show and SURTEX

Over the last couple of months we’ve been pulling double duty here at Simon+Kabuki. On the one hand we’ve been designing and finalizing new collections to showcase at SURTEX. This year S+K does not have a booth but our agent will be there with a large booth and lots of meetings set up for us. And on the other hand we have been designing a booth and all marketing materials for StationeryHQ, a printer, that will be at the National Stationery Show next door. We love designing stationery and have been at it for quite some time, we were one of the original designers on TinyPrints. So it was fun to design notecards, notebooks, and other goodies for StationeryHQ. They are introducing several new processes to designers like Letterpress Lite and fun new die cuts. We hope you have time to stop by our booth and say hi, Jewel Branding, Booth 408. And if you have time to check out NSS let us know what you think of StationeryHQ’s booth. Don’t forget to come back to our blog often as we update with some of our new collections and observations from the...

custom photo holiday cards

We are quickly approaching the holidays. Every year it flys by and I always say to myself that this year I will be super organized, holiday cards done by Thanksgiving, presents wrapped as they are bought, and all shopping done by mid-December. I assume I am like everyone else on the planet and this miracle never happens! I do have a small amount of shopping done, no presents wrapped and some Christmas cards ordered so I guess I am 1/4 of the way there. I hope to finish ordering my cards today. With all of the online options and quick shipping this is probably the easiest item on my list to cross off. We have been designing custom photo cards for over 5 years now and each year we add multiple online sites that we design for. You can find our cards on sites like TinyPrints, KodakGallery, Snapfish, Simply to Impress and many others. I have gathered a small sampling of some of our cards to get you inspired. It only takes a few minutes of your time to upload and personalize a card and within a week you get the finished product and a lot of happy smiles from all of your friends and family. Most sites are also running discounts so there is no excuse to sending a personalized card!
