happy fall y'all!

the leaves have turned to pretty fall shades, pumpkins occupy every porch on my street, and the holidays are quickly approaching! fall is my favorite time of year and always puts a smile on my face. i just wanted to wish everyone a fun and safe halloween and let you know that our photo sessions are completely booked until next year! wow! we are so blessed to be busy with our creative passions, but are regretful that we cant help more people with holiday photos this season. please start thinking about those birthdays and events that are coming up in 2010! we look forward to hearing from you!

Happy Thursday! I just wanted to share a charming little site with you. Being a huge fan of fonts, I've grown quite fond of typographer and illustrator Jessica Hische. She has recently started the Daily Drop Cap which features a new letter every day! Hooray!

sweet treasure.

This past summer SwellMail had tons of fun designing pirate themed invitations and announcements for the Barks family. After Charlee Kay's arrival, Beth photographed her in a treasure chest complete with jewels and a cute striped head scarf. Adorable!

abigail's big day.

custom printed birthday invites with banner sewn on.


drum roll please....

Hi loveys!
After months of designing and test printing and cutting and re-printing, we have finally worked out (most of) the kinks and are excited to start blogging about SwellMail! We have a lot to show for our hard work over the past months from birthdays to babies, new homes, weddings, and more! This month we are concentrating on several Christmas ideas. Beth has been crazy busy with photo sessions, so if you're wanting to schedule some family pics then you better get your rear in gear and call her! I've been finishing up some shower invitations and am eager to start on card designs for the holidays. If you are interested in ordering custom invitations or cards for any occasion or if you have any questions regarding SwellMail, please let us know. you can reach us by email at

Also, keep an eye out for future posts that will include our past work, some of Beth's photography, some cool stuff we design just for fun, and all kinds of creative things that make us happy.

Happy Fall!
