Cink Art had the pleasure of working with wedding planner extraordinaire Drew Vanlandingham to providing wedding stationery for a beautiful wedding which took place in May on a private farm in Baltimore County. The theme of the event was inspired by the couple’s involvement in the sport of Polo and their love for horses, so save the dates, invitations rehearsal dinner invitations and day-of stationery were all designed with that theme in mind. A good deal of watercolor painting went into the stationery including a painted polo match for the lining of the save the date envelope and a series of magnolia blossoms which were used throughout the ensemble. Cink Art was also asked to sketch the gorgeous farm house venue for the event. The wedding went off without a hitch in spite of some stormy weather and the decor by Vanlandingham Studios was absolutely gorgeous. All beautifully captured in photography seen here by Bradley Images. Congratulations Liv and Nate!

A dream come true just happened for us here at Cink Art with the creation of a Washington DC themed wedding invitation ensemble! Although we love to create local Annapolis and Eastern Shore themed wedding stationery, we were waiting for the right opportunity to create invitations for a DC event. The Bride and Groom really wanted to feature the iconic buildings of the city, specifically the Nation’s Capital, Lincoln Memorial, Jefferson Memorial and the Washington Monument and since sketches of buildings is one of our trademarks they came to Cink Art. The invitation suite colors are white, gold and black and the invitation features all the buildings in a skyline in gold ink. The invitation is mounted on a white shimmer pocket with a mirror gold back and each accessory card tucked into the pocket is printed with a building at the top in gold ink. All cards were printed in thermography - a great job by Laura Marr Printers. An antique map of Washington DC in Black and white was used for the envelope liner. We are excited to share this invitation design and look forward to the many DC themed wedding day-of accessories we will be doing for this gorgeous event. Thank you Claire and Ken for working with us!

For the past few years on Valentine’s Day Cink Art sends a thank you Valentine to vendors, venues and wedding planners who continually send potential clients to us. Usually being some sort of creatively packaged stationery in nature, this years’s gift is a set of “Love Notes” with a hand painted watercolor scene on the cover. Ideal for thank yous, love letters and other note giving we hope our colleagues in the business of love can use these whenever they need to send a hand written note (which of course in our opinion is still the best way to communicate the sincerest of messages!). Everyone needs a little love note now and then so look for these love notes to be offered in the Cink Art online store soon to come. Happy Valentine’s Day!
