Seller Spotlight: origamiprints

by

This holiday season, there’s no doubt that you’ll be receiving a pile of greeting cards in the mail. But if you open an envelope only to see a bold, modern and stylish card with striking photography, it’s a good bet that it was designed by Shelby Allison of origamiprints. Known for her bold (“I’m all about being bold!” Says Allison) use of font and collaged pictures, Shelby’s “Bold Merry and Bright” holiday card is a best seller. Shelby told us which of her cards are her favorites.

The contrast between the black & white photos and bright colors really make this card pop!

I love designing invites, stationery and photo cards the most. That’s where I got my name, origamiprints — the name went well with my goal to combine artwork with paper into an art form.

Here’s a list of my other five favorite products in my store:

New Year’s Trio Photo Card:

I wanted to give this design a clean and classic look by using minimal color along with very clear and simple fonts.

Jeaune Amour Vintage Save the Date:

I got inspiration for this card after my recent visit to Paris, France. I wanted to design a save the date with a very sweet and romantic look with a little bit of a vintage feel.

Ocean Waves Wedding Invite:

For this invitation, I wanted to create a design that was a little bit more unique than your average beach wedding invitation. I just love the way the blue and the gold look together.

Sweet Cakes Baby Shower Invite:

Nautical Baby Shower Invite:

For this design, I wanted to create a baby shower invite with a classy and elegant feel. I think the navy, white and yellow color scheme, along with the organization of the text, is what makes the look.

As you can probably tell, my designs are heavily influenced by typography. I love discovering new fonts and typefaces. Each font has a personality of its own and can really transform the look of a product, depending on which one you choose. I think choosing the right font, including the way you organize the layout of your text, can make a world of difference in a design.
