Early in 2010, Brooke Forry, Terry Baker and Maggie Moore found themselves in a serendipitous situation. Friends from previous design jobs, they wanted to freelance full-time and help local companies make their brand identities more attractive. Their vary- ing passions and strengths fit together to form one solid package—and so they founded Wynnewood-based Curious & Co. Creative.
Happily for local brides, these design mavens recently launched a new line of letterpress wedding invitations, the Claremont Collection. In addition to 12 designs ranging from the whimsical to the fashion-forward to the more traditionally elegant, the ladies have more than 30 ink colors—or can even create one for you. (They can also start from scratch and customize your entire design.) You’ll end up with something completely gasp-worthy, imbued with the collection’s vintage-meets-modern aesthetic. “We want to create beautiful things,” says Forry. “After all, these will set the tone for your entire day.”
Heather design from the Claremont Collection, with ecru stock, clover ink and a Paper Bag envelope. $1,010 for 100 full suites, including invitation, response card, response envelope (response postcard also available), and button-and-string main envelope.
