The newest corporate ID client for Just Ink On Paper is Blackbird Cakery, a new company we were thrilled to work with. A new transplant to Baltimore, owner Diane Stone has created a niche in the cupcake market with an "Edgar Allan Poe-theme" to her company. Taking a peak at her flavor list (which sound amazing by the way), all the cupcakes center around a Poe and Baltimore theme, something truly unique. With this in mind, Diane wanted to create an identity that was a little edgy (while avoiding the ghoulish/Halloween approach), and not your traditional pink and frilly cupcake feel.I would highly suggest a call to Diane for your cupcake addiction (she also does quite more than just delicious cupcakes as well).

Dusty Lavender and Pewter, NOT lavender and black...that was the theme of these invitations. I met Holly and Nick at the Baltimore Magazine Aisle Style Bridal Show last March, where they immediately gravitated towards the Parisian Collection for their wedding this October in Baltimore. Holly and I poured over the hundreds of PMS inks to choose the perfect shade of lavender, a color that was almost a sepia-toned lavender if you will, a term that we kept using to describe it. We finally hit on the perfect color, one that was more "dusty" than your typical "sweet" lavender. We complimented it with a dark gray ink, not black, to produce the same kind of look as the lavender, something a little more subdued. The Parisian is one of my favorite designs, and one that works beautifully with Holly's color palette.
Holly and Nick are the most perfectly gorgeous couple, with an equally perfect proposal story (complete with the "aww" factor) I read on their website. Looking forward to posting some photos of their ceremony and reception items for their wedding at the 1840's Ballroom next weekend.

The season is going strong with weddings, next up are Meghan and Mike's invitations for their wedding this November at the stunning Peabody Library in Baltimore. Meghan came to me with save the dates from another source, but wasn't thrilled with the invitation options that matched the suite. Enter Just Ink On Paper, to create her wedding stationery that still reflected the feel of her save the dates, but with a design she loved. The invitations are printed on a cream textured stock and paired with a metallic green backing to give an extra pop of color.
Soon to come are Meghan and Mike's reception items, which are chock full of "Meg and Mike" details. This couple has really made an effort to include guests in the everydays of their lives. In the works right now is a custom map serving as the unofficial guide to their favorite Baltimore destinations!
