It seems that typography based invitations are currently quite popular in the wedding world. Nearly half of my current custom design clients are asking for invitations with very minimal embellishments and we are focusing on either traditional text only designs or modern “type as a graphic” looks.  I LOVE this! One of my favorite things is to let the fonts on an invitation lead the design and I’m really enjoying working through the process with so many different couples. Of course I’ll be sure to share the end results as a few of the designs are ultimately going to be part of my Signature Collection.

I thought it would be fun to share a few of my favorite fonts – both traditional & modern – some old & some new!


Many of these can be seen in use on the typography based designs currently in the Fuzzynk Signature Collection invitations. Here are a couple of my favorite examples!

I’m teaming up with the always fabulous Style Me Pretty blog on an “Inspiration to Invitation” challenge.  I’ll be selecting one inspiration board put together by a Style Me Pretty reader and designing a complete invitation suite based on it.  The new invitation design will become a part of the Fuzzynk Signature Wedding Collection for 2012!

Be sure to jump over to the SMP blog and build your inspiration board before Friday!  Full details here.


A few months back I was asked by the amazing Brenda Swann of Swann Soirees if I would like to contribute the paper goods for a wedding photo shoot she was putting together.  Of course, knowing that she always plans amazing weddings I was happy to join in the fun.  The “Grace” invitation I designed for the shoot is also now included in my Signature Collection if you are interested in ordering the design for your own stylish event!

The wedding theme was originally “Seeing Stripes” and during development it blossomed into a modern art-deco themed blue, gold, and pink wedding design.  Beautiful!

Here are a few pictures from the day.  Be sure to hop over to Brenda’s blog to read all of the details from the day.  Big thanks to all of the wedding vendors who contributed their time & goods!

In this third customization post I have put together options showing the Nicole invitation in one, two, or three colors.   Limiting the number of colors is a great way to fit letterpress printing into your invitation budget.  You’ll also notice that in the winter scheme the playful Nicole design can be made sophisticated for a black tie affair.  Enjoy!

Part two of our signature collection customization options is here!  This time I’ve modified Betsy to show how much the font and color choices can completely change the look of this invite design.  Also, I know a lot of my couples are interested in fitting letterpress into their budget… and a big part of that is limiting the number of colors on the invite!  So, you’ll see in the samples below that Betsy doesn’t loose any of its charm when you drop the colors from three down to just one.  The spring design is a perfect example of how a single color print can be done up with a colored backing to create a great little package.  Enjoy!

I work with a lot of my custom design couples for months prior to their wedding.  In the case of Erin & Scott, it’s been well over a year of fun design and planning.   During the custom process I feel like I learn so much about my couples, especially the brides, that I find myself super excited as I count down the days until their wedding.  At the same time I get a little bummed out knowing I won’t get to share anymore emails or chats about their ideas!  It’s a little like a good friend moving away!

So, today is one of those days… Erin & Scott are off getting hitched in sunny San Diego! I am really excited for them, and I know their wedding is going to be absolutely AMAZING!  I can’t wait to see the pictures.  I am a little behind on blogging and I never got the chance to share all of the fun paper products we dreamed up for their wedding day, from engagement announcements & save the dates to invitations & programs…. here are a few snapshots of the designs. Enjoy!

I got some great news this week from Abby & her great team at the Style Me Pretty blog.  Fuzzynk has been selected to be a new member of Abby’s Little Black Book of the best wedding vendors.  I’m really excited and honored to be a part of this hand-picked group of wedding specialists.  If you are one of the few people left that haven’t heard of Abby’s blog be sure to check it out!  She posts the most amazing weddings, give-aways, DIY ideas and more.


It probably doesn’t surprise anyone to find out that my favorite color is green.  I’ve always been a huge fan of every shade from chartreuse to emerald.  One of my favorite uses of green in weddings is in the flowers… so I’ve put together a few images to inspire everyone on this happy St. Patty’s day.  Enjoy!

Yesterday morning I was delighted to read a sweet post that Ms. Duckling wrote on Weddingbee about Fuzzynk Design Studio.  The blog was quite active as Weddingbee readers linked over to see what we are all about.

So, THANK YOU Ms. Duckling and HELLO to all the new readers who are stopping by.  I look forward to working with many of you that have contacted me regarding wedding invitations!


I couldn’t stop with the green & orange after I finished this weekends inspiration board… so I used the color combo in my latest invitation “Emily”.  The design will be a part of the Signature Wedding Collection and of course can be customized for the wording and colors of any wedding.  Personally,  I think it would be great for a spring or summer event.  Plus the casual fun style could easily serve as a bridal shower invitation as well!  I’m looking forward to carrying this design into the menu’s and save-the-dates as well.  I share them as soon as they are complete.  Enjoy!
