Vanessa and Michael

This couple loves Latin spice and opted for vibrant papaya colored paper for their save the date. They paired this intense paper with wine colored ink to go along with the first of their wedding events in wine country. A bunch of grapes aptly represent the Napa Wedding and the palm trees were selected as an emblem to go along the second half of the wedding, a celebration for the newlyweds, in sunny Texas. Vanessa wrote in a recent email, “Zida, the feedback has been very very positive! I have heard that they love them…they love the color and the letterpress….! Totally a home run!”

Curtis GuestJamie Lee Curtis discovered Studio Z almost 15 years ago. I was working late and got a call and a voice said, “Hello, my name is Jamie Curtis. I saw some printing you did for Angelica Houston and I was wondering if you could do some for me.” She has been my costumer ever since. She is an inveterate thank you note writer and we have printed her letterheads and envelopes, thank you notes, mailing labels. The latest addition to her stationery wardrobe are these deluxe letterpress printed gift tags. They were printed with a deep impression on the super thick 600 gram Cranes Lettra paper. The large hole allows for a multitude of ribbon, wire and string options perfect for any gift or wrapping paper. We printed half of them with Curtis in black ink and Guest (her husband Christopher Guest’s last name) in grey and the other half is the opposite.

Our gorgeous new sign out front

Rick Sacks is an absolute genius! He painted this new sign for us after a few signless years. He adapted our logo to make the paisley on the Z show up even speeding by at 45 miles an hour. We are in love! Isn’t it stunning? I keep finding ways to drive by my shop several times a day just so I can look at this incredible piece of art.

Nomadic Bohemian League
