Our earliest design collaboration was Tutu Magazine when we were studying graphic design at Rhode Island School of Design, but it was designing our own wedding invitations that inspired us to start our own business and begin creating wedding invitations for other couples. Our invitations were awarded Print magazine’s Regional Design Annual 2006 — Certificate of Design Excellence.
We often used to joke that we waited so long to get married because of the pressure of designing our own wedding invitations — with art school friends and design colleagues on the invitee list, we wanted invitations like no other they’d seen. The invitations featured a duplexed paper stock (two papers laminated to make a new double-sided paper) and die-cut windows to reveal the content inside. The suite was printed in two ink colors plus and featured a blind deboss on the invitation.
