Here’s a little bit about the process that went into making these wedding invitations recently.

I’ll go into more detail around the concept next-time; today I’d like to focus on the rather extended design and construction process, which included: copy writing; layout and design of body text and graphic content; (digital) printing of inner pages; letterpress printing of cover; hand-sewing to stitch binding; book-press time to flatten booklets; and, finally, manual trimming of inner pages.

Times that effort by nearly 100 booklets!
