Lupa and Pepi Holiday 2014 Photo and Non-Photo Cards

We're thrilled to release our first ever holiday collection! (Yipee!!) Our collection includes gift wrap as well as personalizable holiday cardsprinted return address envelopes and gift tags too! It's all available in our online shop and (drum roll please.....!) everything is 20% off with the coupon code "FALALA"! (Offer expires November 30, 2014) 

But wait... there's more!! Now through November 21st, Krista of Krista Mason Photography (whose gorgeous photos are featured in the samples of our photo holiday cards this season!) is offering 1-hour portrait sessions in the Los Angeles area for $250 — and that includes digital files! 

HOLIDAY CARDS & PAPERGOOD SETS 
The Fa La La suite features a holiday cardwrapping paper and personalizable gift tags too! It will certainly get you into the holiday spirit singing carols and seeing snowflakes! (Hint: the Fa La La Gift Tag & Wrapping Paper Set is sure to kick off your holiday gift wrapping with a song and will save a few bucks too!!)


Inspired by our Geometrica papergoods suite, Holimetrica brings some geometric good cheer (& a hidden image on the back!). 

PHOTO CARDS
Our refrigerator at home is covered in photo cards that we've received from family and friends. We don't live near family so it's wonderful to see these photos every day! It's around this time of year when our "fridge display" changes as we update it with new photo cards that we receive! With this in mind, we created 2 holiday card layouts that accommodate photos — Pino and Regalo.

The Pino Holiday Card was inspired by memories of the holidays on the east coast. Add return address printing to save some time when addressing envelopes! 

Lupa and Pepi Regalo Photo Personalized Holiday Card
Our second holiday photo card couldn't sum up our mantra for this season better — "Wrap up the season with joy and love"! We think Regalo does exactly that!

Announcing Archetto, Classico, Geometrica & Petalo!

October 21, 2014 | Posted by Rachel Kashon

You may have noticed that all has been pretty quiet on the blog front here at L&P. Not only are we in the midst of our most busy wedding season yet (yay!), we've also been madly designing, photographing and prepping our online shop re-launch (double yay!)!

I'm thrilled to unveil four papergoods suites: Archetto, Classico, Geometrica and Petalo! Each suite is comprised of a multitude of matching elements for everyday (notecardsbusiness cardsnotepads, announcements) and party (invitations, coasters, wrapping paper, gift tags)! Want to know the best part? Everything is personalizable and you can get 20% off with the coupon code "HOORAY"!! (Offer expires October 31, 2014) 

Here's a little peek into the design inspiration behind the new items in our shop:


ARCHETTO
A twist on the very popular chevron pattern, the Archetto papergoods suite features a bright color palette paired with very clean sans serif typography. 


CLASSICO
This papergoods suite is very near and dear to our hearts since its inspiration is derived from our very own L&P logo! This clean, minimalist suite features the serif font and a red, white and soft grey palette. The couples version of this suite features a twist on the ampersand/heart from our logo! 


GEOMETRICA
Our most popular suite to date, the Geometrica suite (inspired by our collab with Chandra of Oh Lovely Day!) is now expanded to include party decor and gift tags!

PETALO
The swoopy, swirly script pairs with a clean sans serif, hand drawn flower motif and mint green, buttercup and charcoal palette to create this modern yet sweet suite! Even the banner on the back has space for a personalized message too!

And that's not all — we have big plans for the shop in the coming weeks! Shortly we'll be releasing designs for holiday which will include personalizable photo and non-photo holiday cards, gift wrap and gift tags. Shortly after that our 2015 calendar will be unveiled and ready for purchase too! It's popular for holiday hostess gifts, stocking stuffers and office gifts too! And then in the new year, we'll be releasing wedding suites and heaps more so stay tuned!

Custom Business Cards for Lovely Indeed

January 23, 2014 | Posted by Rachel Kashon

Gold Foil Business Cards

When Chelsea from Lovely Indeed told me that she wanted us to design her business cards again this year, I was thrilled! Then… she said two magic words that made me jump for joy: “gold foil”! (Music to this graphic designer’s ears!!) The resulting business cards feature her logo in gold foil with a letterpressed pink heart on one side and full bleed pink with her name and info reversed out on the other side. Check out Chelsea’s blog post where she talks a little bit about our process and a wacky idea that I had for the back of her biz cards! There’s also details on a special discount that I’m offering on custom designed business cards too!!

Notecard Papergood Thank You Note Custom

As we unpack from our trips and settle back into our day-to-day life as a married (!!) couple, we have one last wedding-related item on our “to do” list — writing thank you notes. It can feel a little overwhelming when you have many to write at once but the Mr. and I have developed a bit of a strategy. So when Amanda of Love Creative asked me to write a guest post for her while she’s off getting hitched, I knew exactly what to write about! Check out my “thank you note” guest post to find out the particulars. (photo by Lupa & Pepi, left to right: custom notecard, Vintage Seed Packet forever stamps via USPSSensa pen)

Molte grazie, Amanda, for the opportunity to guest post! Felicitazioni!
