Elum Designs

I spent some more time browsing around the Elum Designs site and found out some interesting things, first of all, like so many designers, she began her wedding stationary line when she was looking for an invitation suite for her own wedding. Unable to find the perfect design for her and her betrothed, they designed their own! Aren’t we all glad she did? Her designs are so beautiful.

Another thing I learned was that not only does Elum have their own design studio; they actually have their own warehouse, which accommodates their very own print and letterpress shop. Amazing! I wish I could go on a field trip!

Lastly, Elum is most impressive in their stride to leaving a minute or non-existent footprint on the earth. They use “tree-free, 100% post-industrial waste cotton rag papers and soy based inks for our every-day stationery and custom invitation lines.” They “encourage their customers to be intelligent about their purchasing decisions, to ask questions about sources and materials and to use the limited resources of the planet wisely.” They say that “printing is inherently a non earth-friendly process but we are doing our best to limit the amount of natural resources we consume and waste we leave behind. “ How fantastic and responsible!

So, not only are they beautiful on the outside, they’re beautiful on the inside.
