A round corner punch, which you can easily buy for under $10 is a great way to add some flair to any of your handmade invites or cards.
I use one for things like my e.m.papers business cards, and the tags I made for the goodie bags at the Advent workshop I hosted a couple of years ago.
This couple you used e.m.papers printable for components of their wedding stationery and the rounded corners really added a special touch.
The next time you’re in a hobby store, pick one up. Just by having it handy you’ll come up with all kinds of ways to use it!
Before starting your DIY printable project you may wonder exactly where to get paper? Most stationery stores have paper that will work just fine in your home printer and fit the guidelines set out in our Paper Guide section.
But you can also order paper online, here are few places we like:
I've been promising my dad a website for a loooong time. Earlier this year we finally did it. Together, we launched a website for his letterpress printing business, please welcome Patrickreagh.com!
I gave a lot of thought about which platform would be the easiest to use and maintain. The website also needed to be able to include a feed to the Patrick Reagh Letterpress ebay store as well as be responsive. I settled on Squarespace (no affiliation!). I had used it before to quickly build a site for a friend and it was pretty easy to use. They've really upped their game with the latest release and their templates are all top notch.
It was a lot of fun to make. My dad really got into it, digging out old pictures of him using his press as a kid and scanning it for the about page. We did several photo shoots setting up his metal type and books to photograph. Once I showed him the basics of using the Squarespace back end, he was off to the races.
The best thing about the project was working together. It reminded me a lot of the time we spent together in the shop making our wedding invitations. I've found that working together is not only a bonding experience, but the best way to get to know someone (I met my husband at work!).
Anyway, take a look at the site and enjoy. Coming soon: The Pat Reagh Printers Blog!

Ah summer. The days are longer, the nights are warmer and there's always a reason to gather together and enjoy life. The picture above is actually from the last wee hours of our wedding. The music got mellow and we dragged out the fire pit and continued snacking, drinking, joking and laughing.
I love a good summer party, and I've got an entire pinterest board dedicated to images that conjure up a sense of summer fun. Below are some of my favorites:
