And the Bando Played On

OK, so maybe a little bit of my own bohemian style is coming out in full force with my love for this store. I love their motto because it also represents who we are.  

They say, “Each piece is totally handmade, using totally awesome materials, truly custom and always fantastic.” Sounds familiar.

Similar to Bando, we use totally awesome materials and have a perfectly fantastic team assembling your custom invitations. We love them as much as you do!

Check ‘em out! Your finger may get tired from scrolling, but it’s like a mini-workout session right? 

P.S. Here are a few examples of our awesomeness…

You would like four rhinestones and a palm tree on your card? Sure, no problem!

My son loves camouflage; can we put it on his mitzvah invitation? Oh yes!

My husband and I want to combine our family crests on our wedding invitations – is that OK? You betcha!

Can we send you patterned paper to work with?  Of course you can!

Is it possible that you can mount my newborns photo on the announcement? So cute, and of course!

 

Until next time,

Megan @ L.V.

Duff and Roses

I recently came across the Stuart Weitzman celebrity shoe auction for charity and found this adorably cute shoe designed by Hillary Duff. She calls it “vintage blazer” (which is super cool). I like this shoe because it reminds me of the white-tone roses pattern in our upcoming wedding album. We will be soon offering this exclusive special tone in limited colors for your wedding invitations. These invites will surely not pinch your toes, and if you insist, I will add a signed poster of myself in the UPS box.

Bohemian Rhapsody

The word “bohemian” has been thrown around this past month, and we were wondering how it actually pertains to stationery. The old bohemian “hippie” gypsy rose is long, long gone. In its place, we welcome the hip and couture style of mixing and matching patterns. This isn’t your grandmother’s patchwork anymore, or that pair of jeans you cut slits into and added fabric; this bohemian style is saturated in color and unique vintage patterns. It’s about the layering of a printed pattern paper with a solid layer or two on top.

 

Our upcoming wedding book offers a truly custom look to a bohemian style. The lovebirds pattern is one of my favorites, because it has the vintage feel of old fabric that you desperately search for at antique stores. The rose’s pattern offers a saturated bottom layer with a red middle layer, white top card and a little rose motif to tie the whole set together. As always, our patterns can be made with the color choices of your special event. Why not add as much style into your invitations as you put into the decorations of your gathering? The invitation sets the tone and is that first impression you just can’t take back.

Spring Sprung

Pantone has recently released their colors for spring ’09, focusing on fashion and home accents. What’s that? Of course you can carry those marvelous colors throughout your Luscious Verde invitation choices! Don’t be stuck in ’08, silly. I’ve compared some of their top colors to our paper choices. Yes, it’s fun and I’m a nerd.

 

Pantone 15-3817 Lavender = Orchid paper

Pantone 18-2328 Fuchsia Red = Beet paper (a personal favorite of mine)

Pantone 15-1626 Salmon Rose = Cotton Candy paper

Pantone 16-0435 Dark Citron = Kiwi

Retailer Spotlight

elise.jpg

At work, when you talk on the phone every day to a person you’ve never met, you tend to get curious about what that person is like in real life. Well, maybe you don’t, but we here at Luscious Verde are a specific breed of character. Perhaps it’s the drinking water from the pristine Cuyahoga River. Perhaps it’s the fact that we’re obsessed with Project Runway. Or, probably, it’s because we’re all a little bit weird. Not in a bad way, mind you, but it takes a specific kind of person to deal with the highs and lows of custom stationery.

 

And we realized, hey, we talk to people every day who we’ve never met, and who are fans of our work. But just talking to them isn’t enough. We’re curious about their trials and tribulations, their outlook on life, and their favorite alcoholic beverage. So we’ve decided to feature, every few weeks or so, a retailer of our products that we want to get to know a little better. Behold the second entry into our illustrious Retailer Spotlight: Elise from No Regrets in Newton, Massachusetts.

 

 

Name: Elise Cherny

 

Where were you born and raised? Sharon, Massachusetts.

 

When did you start in custom stationery? 1988 – can’t believe it’s been 20 years!

 

For God’s sake, why? My mother started the business. When she passed away, my father said, “Try it. If you don’t like it, toss it.” What was I thinking?

 

Family? Pets? Family you wish were pets? Fabulous husband, two fabulous children and Lola, the cutest pug on the planet.

 

What are your guilty pleasures? I don’t feel guilty!

 

What’s your favorite beverage? Starbucks and cabernet – but not together!

 

What’s your favorite font? Such personal questions…Wendy for girls and Bernhard Modern for boys.

 

Not to toot our own horn, but what’s your favorite Luscious Verde design? Can I toot my own horn? I love your designs but I love being able to customize them even more!

 

Other than being awesome at stationery, what else are you really good at? Since I’ve been a “paper mogul” for 20 years, I haven’t had time to be good at anything else! My hidden talent…hmm…I can pick fabulous restaurants!
