You see, I thought I invented these things… making art with your wedding vows. In my head, the biggest challenge of getting this product sold would be just to raise awareness and make it “a thing.” But you see, thanks to Etsy, wedding vow art is very much a thing and passing that hurdle was a breeze.
Now, after over 60 designs and sales, I thought it was time to share some of the photos of some of my favorite pieces.
These are probably my favorite products in my shop, what an honor it is to be given the task to create art with words that are held so near and dear to a couple’s heart. And whether it’s with song lyrics, or wedding vows, the words are always so beautiful… and even sometimes funny. It’s a treasure to be able to have such an intimate glimpse into these almost stranger’s lives.
And just recently, after developing a few clear lettering styles, I broke the listing down into 3, and then 4 lettering styles…
Smiling is My Favorite
A fun and bubbly script…
Why, yes, this next one is in German!! So fun!
Footloose and Fancy Free
A classic script…
And even though most want the classic black text on a white background, sometimes we get creative… one idea is white text on black chalkboard.
A Little Bit of Whimsy
With an uneven baseline, these handcrafted words are whimsical and feminine.
Another style with an uneven baseline, but a little bit less whimsy. This one is new to the shop, and its definitely my new favorite. The style first came to be after writing a ton of “thanks” gift tags, I liked this new style so much, so I just had to try it out on a few vow prints with some willing customers!
Hand Lettered Originals
By request, I’ve added original prints as well, without the crutch of editing the final design digitally, these are always a challenge to get right and perfect but I always love them… the look and fill of the imperfections of pen to paper.
And this is totally brand new, just a couple weeks old, and by my own request to fill a frame in my house, white ink on gritty Kraft wrapping paper! And then right after that, created a black inked print on Kraft cardstock for a friend.
But of course, I still create the original, all digital typography prints too!
I really do have the best clients, especially when they send me photos of their prints hung up or on display in their homes!! What an honor!!
With all that to say, these sure do make great gifts. Most of the above are created by the bride for themselves as a momento from the wedding… but quite a few are purchased as anniversary presents to the spouse, or even as a day of the wedding gift! And one was created the week after the wedding, as a wedding present based on the best man’s speech! I thought that was pretty brilliant and may be stealing that idea some day soon.
I’m hoping to one day make more book quotes or bible verse prints… and even prints for baby nurseries! I think that would all be so fun!
Anyway, hope you enjoyed this extra peek behind the scenes at some of my favorite pieces, after all, Etsy only allows for 5 photos! What else am I supposed to do with the rest!
