Inspired by the movie White Mischief set in the 1940's, Sideshow designed and printed these mysterious invitations. These square invitations were 2 color letterpress (blind + black) on 220 Crane Lettra Paper and then edged in a mustard yellow. We love the simplicity and style of these vintage inspired invitations.

We love trying new things here at Sideshow. Our latest experiment; white washing wood for a invitation (we will share the full invite soon!). To achieve the affect we were looking for, the white washing turned out to be a 3 step process.

Something we've been doing more and more at Sideshow Press lately is printing other designers work. We always love the chance to work with talented designers to produce their work on the press. So when Jay Fletcher came calling, we were thrilled. We're big fan of Jay and his work so it was a true honor to get the chance to print his well designed wedding invitation.

For the second year in a row, Charleston's finest chefs will be gathering for a private dinner in the next few weeks to celebrate food. We worked with Chef Barbara Lynch and her team to create packaging for an Italian Picnic Basket which served as this years invitation, (see last years). Each item in the basket was hand wrapped and adorned with a sticker labeling the contents. Kristin Newman Designs is planning the event which we know will be spectacular.

Last Fall we were excited to be asked to participate in one of Garden & Gun's online auctions. Craig Fuller was the winner of a Sideshow Press Custom Social Stationery set. There's nothing we love more than to receive thank you notes from our clients handwritten on the stationery we just produced for them! Thanks Craig, it was so great working with you on this set.
