This year we have had the pleasure of designing and creating holiday cards - from Thanksgiving through New Year’s - for some of our favorite wedding vendors and venues. Whether it is the customers idea for the card design or collaboration with an original design created by us, it brings us great joy to create them and really gets us into the holiday spirit. Thanks to all who came to us this year for holiday card design and we wish you a merry Christmas, happy new year and happy holidays from all of us at Cink Art!
Like any wedding vendor we love feedback, especially from our customers. This month we were treated to some great praise from one of our printers which we just had to share as we are very proud of our custom designed envelope liners! We have been creating a lot of artwork for invitation and greeting card envelope liners this year and are so happy to hear they are appreciated. Thank you Envelopments for the compliments and the fantastic print jobs you do for Cink Art!

This season we created wedding stationery for a couple whose good friend had painted a floral painting for the couple incorporating their wedding colors. Jodi Sparber created this gorgeous arrangement and with her permission we were able to incorporated it into the wedding invitation design and also for the items used on the day of the wedding. We LOVE a couple who “brands’” their wedding stationery with color and designs so we had a great time making all the items for Lindsey and Adam. Check out these gorgeous photos of the event stationery and artwork by Heather Ryan Photography. Congratulations Lindsey and Adam!

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!
