A GIFT SHOP & DESIGN STUDIO IN RED HOOK, BROOKLYN
As long term admirers and regular customers of Red Hook’s Foxy and Winston, when my girlfriend Helen and I decided to get married, we knew immediately that Jane Buck would be our first choice designer for custom letterpress wedding stationery. From our preliminary in-person save the date meeting with Jane where we reviewed her previous samples and pantone color guides to our follow up Skype session to fine tune our invitation design, Jane was attentive and responsive to our unique needs and full of fun, creative, and collaborative suggestions to help bolster our specific vision. Throughout the entire process, Jane’s enthusiasm and passion for thoughtful illustration shone through her work and we were absolutely delighted with the final printed results to share with our friends and family to celebrate our special occasion. Our only regret is that we couldn’t spend more time with her wonderful beagle Bea!
The decor and feel of our wedding was so specific to Brooklyn that we felt incredibly lucky to find Jane, whose impressive knowledge of letterpress and design captured all the nuance and rich history of the borough we call home. In addition to putting together a stationary package that reflected our tastes exactly, she absolutely nailed our vision for a hand-drawn map of the venue and environs.
As soon as my husband and I walked into Foxy and Winston we knew we had found the right spot for our wedding save the dates and invites. Jane’s designs are unique, classic and timeless - she has unparalleled artistic skill. We asked Jane to draw some very specific images for our Italian wedding and everything was done professionally and perfectly. Not only was she incredibly competent, she was an absolute pleasure to work with. I can truly say that our invites were some of the best I’ve seen and I am so thrilled we decided to use Jane for our special day, it was one of the best wedding decisions we made; our save the date and invite now hang in our apartment as an art piece. We are currently pregnant with our first child and have already engaged Jane to design our birth announcements!
Most aspects of planning the wedding were fairly stressful, and I never quite felt the vendors were listening. Working with Jane was a dreamy experience. She spent lots of time with us and was patient in talking through how the invitation would come together. The overall result was so unique and special. It also acts as a piece of art we could have on our walls.
It was a true pleasure working with Jane for our wedding save the dates, invitations and personalized stamp. Jane is open, warm, attentive, and charming— all while producing impeccable work. Jane was able to take our quite disjointed ideas and create a unified vision that we both adored. We wholeheartedly recommend Jane and certainly will use her again (without getting married again).
Jane worked with us patiently to design a playful save the date for our winter wedding. She was so creative and collaborative, and helped bring our ideas to life. The heart and arrow motif that she designed was a perfect save the date for our February wedding!Jane designed a beautiful wedding invitation for us depicting winter foliage with two whimsical birds while still incorporating our heart and arrow motif. We loved our formal winter wedding invitation, and the gold foil letterpress made it so special. We still have our wedding invitation framed as a constant reminder of Jane’s beautiful work!Jane designed every element of our custom letterpress wedding suite, from our reply postcard, to our save the dates with matching envelope liner for our wedding invitations, an itinerary, and our thank you cards. She even made a charming letterpress map of Pittsburgh with personal hand drawn illustrations of monuments and wedding venues. Everything was perfect, and Jane is sheer joy to work with! We couldn’t be happier with everything. When the wedding was over, we really missed talking with Jane!
My wife and I have now been married for three years! As we look back, of course we have many fond memories. One of our very favorite is our experience working with Jane on our invitation. Every single part of the process was amazing - both creative and fun. As soon as we met her, we felt that Jane really understood us as individuals and as a couple. And the invitation itself is a beautiful and lasting reminder of our incredible day. We can’t thank her enough!
Working with Jane on our wedding invitation was a truly wonderful experience. We were seeking something unique and she worked closely with us to come up with the perfect design, considering thoughtfully each and every detail, from the original artwork all the way down to the font and wording of the invitation. We felt the whole time she cared just as much as we did. The process was highly collaborative and was one of the most enjoyable in our whole wedding planning experience!
