Zed & Bee Shake Up The Letterpress Landscape with Divine Invitations

The very clever and talented sister team, Zoe Ritch and Billie Shennen, are the duo behind Zed & Bee. These unstoppable women have recently launched a new collection of designer letterpressed invitations which we helped them bring to life.

They went into the designer invitation business when Zoe couldn’t find beautiful quality bespoke invitations for her own wedding a few years back.  She and Billie (both are graphic designers) decided to join forces to bring to meet this market gap, and began crafting invites with individuality, colour and fabulous flair.

Both are very well versed with deigning for bespoke printing techniques. They utilise plush stocks and cleverly design for a bold and contemporary take on letterpress. The designs are refreshing, tactile and expressive – with something to suit every kind of event.The new invitation collection is perfect for budget-conscious brides, events planners or anyone with an occasion to host but who would rather spend the dollars on the food, wine and entertainment than the invitations themselves. Their letterpress engagement, wedding, bat mitzvah, christening, anniversary, corporate function and birthday invitations are a breath of fresh air in the Australian design scene.

Simply select the style you like, select your colours and add your custom details (your names and dates, any special wording etc.) and have a beautiful custom stationery. Visit their website to discover their fabulous ‘Celebrations on Paper’!

JUSTUS MAGAZINE ISSUE 02 – SPONSORED BY WATERMARX – WINS PRINTOVATION AWARD

The Printovation Awards (GASAA’s annual awards) on the 24th September, was hosted by MC John Mangos entertaining a crowd of printers and creatives at Dockside, Darling Harbour. Watermarx Graphics was there, cheering on our colleagues and friends at the event.

With twice the number of entries from last year,  the works on display for 2012 were impressive and exciting. Justus Magazine’s Issue 02 >> To Letterpress With Love claimed the winning prize in the Offset category. Printed by Ligare and, as some of you may already know, letterpress printed and embossed / debossed by us! Watermarx Graphics really enjoyed the opportunity with this project to be playful with the way we applied the patented & patent pending CLIQX technologies to letterpress printing, embossing and debossing throughout the magazine so that it could truly be a showcase of the possibilities of the craft.

Along with a very snazzy Half-Canadian ring bind, typography from our mate, Paul Nolan  and designs from Melbourne’s Motherbird, Perth’s Studio Bomba, Sydney’s Mark Gowing and Queensland’s Peter Sexty Design, it’s quite a special piece. If you haven’t got your hands on one yet, jump onto that pronto at www.justusmagazine.com.au  – as a tactile source of inspiration and ideas, it is a wonderful resource for any lover of print.

Congratulations to the team at Eleven Eleven Design for the win and to Spicer’s, Ligare, Tafeda and all the fantastic creative talents from across Australia who took part in Issue 02 of Justus Magazine. We were honoured to be involved and suspect this may just be the first of many more accolades to come!
