Over the weekend I stumbled my way into a print shop near our wedding venue. They have a 100+ year old letterpress machine in house that they turned on for me and let me just say... wow. Pure mechanical awesome! 

So do any of my few yet incredibly fine readers have any experience with letterpress? I think our wedding invitations would really benefit from this method of printing.

Our Wedding

I've added a new section to the site where I'm going to post my designs for our wedding next fall. You can find it under the Graphic Design category, or head right to dlheidemann.com/wedding

All the details can be found on that page, but basically I'm trying to get a unified look for all of the aspects of our wedding without creating a "theme"... if that makes any sense. 

Critique is welcome. There are a handful of things I'm already planning on changing but just haven't found the time for yet. Everything is still very much in a "work in progress" state, so don't rip them apart just yet ;-)


For those that don't already know, I'll be getting married in 2014. A ways out but Beth is in grad school still...blah blah blah, you know the story.

I feel like there's a cool opportunity for some fun graphic design work here. I hate to think of my wedding as a "brand", but if I approach it with that sort of mentality I think I'll end up with a pretty cool result.

Maybe I'll post my projects and ideas for that here as we move forward. What do you think?
