Spring Fair at the NEC Birmingham 2018 February 08, 2018 11:31

Having set off at the crack of dawn we arrived at the NEC in Birmingham at 9am full of latte and optimisim for another Spring Fair.
Instantly overwhelmed by the sheer size of the place we headed straight for the Summer House and meandered around all the beautiful and inspiring stands. So much to see, so many new lines, new styles, new colours, new fabrics...
Then off to the Stationery Hall. Wow. All those new type faces, papers, designs, laser prints. So much inspiration.
We came away with armfuls of brochures, freebies and sore feet.
Perfect!

Our little nod to Pantone's colour of the year 2018 'Ultra Violet'. January 25, 2018 12:14

Every year Pantone elects a 'Colour of the Year'. Last year we had 'Greenery' the refreshing and revitalising shade of new beginnings. This year Pantone describes their 'Ultra Violet' as 'dramatically provocative and thoughtful'. The strong purple shade is said to communicate 'originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future', almost lighting the way to what is yet to come. Perfect and apt for our very own 'Deep Purple' wedding album or even our lighter shade of 'Lavender' photo album if you just want to give a hint of purple to the day. All our wedding guest books come in purple and lavender too. Weddings are the beginning of what is yet to come, and certainly points to a promising future. Or you could even try one of our memorable birthday albums, they do say 'Life begins at 40!' Onwards and upwards...

    

   


How Important is the Type Face on your Wedding Stationery? March 23, 2016 13:53

Being in the printing business we have become more and more obsessed with different type fonts! Sad, I know. However, in our defence, the whole area of fonts and type faces is strangely addictive. My individual nerdy obsession took an added turn when I was bought the book Just My Type by Simon Garfield for Christmas. Oh my life, as Simon explains, just a small tweak to the type on a logo and the whole thing changes disproportionately. Love it.

It is actually amazing ( no irony here) how you can change the look and feel of a product just by using a cursive, modern or block type face.

Check this out; same product but four different fonts.

Amazing Ways to Personalise Your Wedding February 10, 2016 11:16

It feels like making your wedding day truly personalised is becoming a bigger and bigger thing. From giving everyone a monogrammed bottle of champagne to handing out an instant photo of the day to all your guests; it seems like personalising your wedding day is de rigeur!

We've found our favourite three ways and want to share them with you...

This is extravagant to say the least - have your own dancefloor customized with your very own wedding logo

Much more attainable is this really cute idea of your names printed inside a stick of rock...

Personalised Wedding Rock Favours, Wedding Confectionery & Place Settings - The Rock People:

And then this idea of giving your guests a customized keepsake of your happy day in the form of a pack of flower seeds to plant , we love!

Many people give out seeds as wedding favors because not only are they affordable, but they're also an eco-friendly gesture. However, keep in mind that not everyone has the space in their home or a yard to grow plants. You can make the seed packets yourself or buy customized ones online. We found these cute kraft-seed envelopes on Etsy that are selling for $90 per 100 pieces — that's $0.90 per envelope.  Source: Etsy user RedCloudBoutique

Tweet us with any examples that you know of @ByAnthology - we'd love to hear from you.


How do you store all those photo booth photos? We think we may have the answer... January 29, 2016 23:30

We are so pleased with this!

We had so many request last year from people desperate for a storage solution for their photobooth photos that we designed this little number.

A hybrid version of a guest book and photo album... Basically the pages are thick, cream photo board so perfect for writing on, sticking on, drawing on but the style is of an album! All tied up beautifully with a black grosgrain ribbon.
