Cheers to Another Great Year!

Happy Holidays from the N&L Team!!!

It's been quite some time since we've had a chance to post. We had our best (and busiest) holiday season to date! Since November 1st, our studio has looked like Santa's workshop with holiday cards and Christmas goodies taking up a good majority of our time. When we weren't being Christmas elves, we were working on some fabulous save the dates, wedding invitations, and swag!! We've had a great two months, and have so much to share!!
Custom Christmas Card
Our swanky Christmas card for 2014!! Our good friend Julie (of Julie Marie Portraits) spent the morning with us back in October, and captured the perfect shot of our team!

When we say we had our best holiday season yet, not only did we have the largest number of families order custom Christmas cards ever...but we also had the most creative requests this year from our customers! We had so much fun accommodating their requests, which really made all the cards this season shine! If we had to choose just one single thing we've been obsessed with the most in 2014...y'all know it would have to be gold foil stamping. From wedding invitations to custom stationery....we think everything looks better with a little gold. So you can imagine our delight when some of our customers requested gold foil on their holiday cards...they're sooooo good!
 This Christmas cards features both gold foil stamping and red lithography, and was also die-cut into a beautiful shape! We also added our calligraphers beautiful lettering, the perfect finishing touch!!
With the new addition of a baby girl into the family, this mom wanted their Christmas card to incorporate pink. So we paired hot pink lithography with gold foil stamping to properly wish their friends and family a Merry Christmas (and to alert them to their new address).
This elegant Christmas card is printed using both gold foil stamping and red thermography. The simplicity of the card's design highlights the family's gorgeous pictures. We adore this card (and this family)!

In addition to our pretty gold foil cards, we did so many creative cards!! From traditional red and green, to patterns and colors highlighting the picture submitted by each family...each card was so amazing and creative! Take a peek at a small sampling of cards we helped create this year!!
These twin girls are too (two) cute!! We took the adorable pattern from their dresses, and went all out on their festive card!
We want to thank each and every customer for their support this past year! From our brides, to the families who we've celebrated with for years, to our online customers...we are so thanks for y'all!! We're excited to work with you in 2015--cheers to a swanky new year!!

Xo (and Happy New Year!),

Nico and Lala
