Won't Somebody Please Think Of the Children?

We regularly donate scrap paper to local non-profits around Cleveland, and we often get pretty cool pictures back from people to show us the ways it is being used. This one is from Vickie in nearby Solon, who uses the paper in her elementary school class. Pretty neat!

The New H&M Campaign

Would you believe this handsome duo works in our office? Oh yes, they do. We started Mustache March with our spokesmodel, Rob (left), and our proofreader, Jim, sporting full beards, but now we capture them in a state of creeper mustache and trucker lamb chops. 

Jim is basically a living version of Wooly Willy -I think he started growing facial hair in second grade. While Rob is the only rock and roll guy who works in a stationery company who can pull off a deep v-neck white tee. Bravo, gentlemen. Bravo.

Did You Know? Custom Silhouettes

Do you love the look of vintage hand-cut paper silhouettes? 

We do.

(But really, who doesn't these days?)

Did you know that at Luscious Verde, we can customize your and your beloved's profiles into one-of-a-kind silhouettes for printing on an invitation and even custom-cutting out of paper? Just send us profile photographs and we'll do the rest.

Please email us,, an image or two taken in profile. It is best to have a neutral background. Take the photo about 3-4 feet away level with the head of the person you are taking the photo of. Please note that when taking the photo it is best that your model has their mouth closed and feels comfortable. Make sure you get the head and shoulders. 

Great for invitations, personalized stationery, and save-the-dates. How cool is that?

We're finalists in the 24th Annual Louie Awards Competition
Check out our awesome wedding entry and wish us luck! 

Just Meg

Congratulations to our own Meg Wilson! Meg was a finalist in the “Dream Food Truck Competition” sponsored by Food Network Magazine.

 The Sloppy Joe’ Loppy truck was personally one of my favorites; I just wish it was a working truck so I could eat sloppy joes every day in our parking lot!  Meg is not only a master at designing potential food trucks, she is also an outstanding member of our printing team. Her unique talents are prominently being shown in our free greeting card sets that we give out in each order, the new line of custom envelope liners that we are developing and many other aspects around Luscious Verde. Meg has also finished writing and designing a children’s book titled Polar Bears in Pajamas which can be viewed and purchased here:  

We are happy to have Meg as part of our creative team and look forward to many future designs from her.

Sneak Peek: Bar/Bat Mitzvah 2012

We're hard at work here at The Luscious Verde Studios finalizing everything for our newest catalog release, Bar/Bat Mitzvah Volume IV! Debuting at the National Stationery Show in New York on May 18th, it's totally different from any of our other Mitzvah Catalogs.
How so, you ask? Well, you'll just have to visit us at Booth 1930/1932 to find out!
In the meantime, we hope you enjoy this sneak preview of what is sure to be our single most popular album ever.

Will you be in New York in May? We're so excited to meet you!

What We're Crushing On Right Now

Anticipation is high this Friday for the coming weekend, and especially tomorrow, which is St. Patrick's Day, which means that Clevelanders from all over the diaspora of Northeast Ohio will descend on downtown and kick off the crazy festivities by drinking, eating, drinking, and then probably drinking some more. We here at Luscious Verde ideally preach moderation but can't say we won't be imbibing tomorrow. Until then, enjoy this song that we've been crushing on pretty heavily.

Orange you glad it's Hot Card Day!?

This week's Hot Card comes all the way from Proper Notice in East Hills, New York. The awesome Bar Mitzvah invitation uses our Orange Juice and Patriot papers along with white lithography to make the text pop. An additional element of dimension is the negative cut out initial. We love the personalization of this card...truly a winner!

Trendy Watch

Much like the Oscars, Grammys and the Northeast Wisconsin Bass Fishermen Association's Person of the Year Awards, we are rolling out the red carpet and getting ourselves gussied up for the Stationery Trends Magazine Trendy Awards. Each year, the best and brightest stationers submit pieces in several categories. This year we're happy to announce our entries in the categories of Green, Wedding and Holiday. We would love to have your vote of Thumbs Up! Thanks in advance -- we'll be sure to mention you in our acceptance speech.

Love Letter(press)

Letterpress is finally at Luscious Verde, and we are officially in love with it!

We're excited to show off our new printing technique, which originated in the update for our second holiday album, published throughout our new wedding album, and quickly becoming popular with the Bar/Bat Mitzvah crowd.

We offer two-color letterpress as well, and when combined with hip new patters like the chevron and classic 1/4" stripes, you really can't go wrong.

Even your dog will love it!
