How to: Capture your Personality

On this surprisingly chilly day in Texas, we're keeping warm by staying in the studio and immersing ourselves in fonts, fonts, and more fonts!

We believe that fonts are the BEST way to capture your personality, not only on your own personal stationery, but everywhere in life. A good flourish says you're sophisticated, classy, and romantic. A modern sans-serif is fun, trendy, and spontaneous. Need a good masculine feel? We say a classic, bold, straightforward font.

See how easy? Now, we know there are a ton of fonts out there - just open your font book or word font collection and you'll see a large assortment - but it really doesn't have to be overwhelming. We've been picking out our favorite fonts for all occasions, genders, personality types, etc. to make it easier for everyone!

The right font can really set the mood and personality, so have fun with it! Think about who you are and what you're wanting to portray. Fonts definitely don't have to be boring. In fact, we say away with boring, generic fonts! Personalize, personalize, personalize! And don't worry, when you're feeling a little defeated by your font collection, we're always here to help!

Lights, Camera, Shoot!

Hey guys, Amanda here!

As a new member of the team, I'm fascinated by the diversity of activities we do each day. Some days we're in the studio designing, some days we're pressing, some days we're presenting, and some days, like today, we have the music on, the dogs around and we're photographing!

We're revamping our website AND doing some awesome publicity stuff so we want our paper to look as amazing as we see them every day.  Here is small sneak peak of some final products:

It's just like us: simple, classic and fun - our paper definitely speaks for itself. We love being creative and hands on, so adding photography to our list of skills is no surprise. Make sure you keep an eye out for some more pictures of our stuff everywhere you look. 

It may be a little gloomy outside in the DFW area today, but it's the complete opposite inside from where I am right now!

We're in a New York State of Mind

Billy Joel did it best when he crooned about the great city of New York and this year, from May 15 - 18, we'll be singing right along.

That's right, we're headed to New York City to set up our very own Kate Reed Designs booth at the National Stationery Show! We've been hard at work designing a brand new line and creating a new, fun way for EVERYONE to be involved (but I won't say too much...yet).

We'll keep you posted as the date draws nearer and for the time being:

Let the countdown begin!
2 months, 3 weeks, 3 days
