Travel quotes

Today's post features travel quotes used by customers in The Leaf Press's travel journals (all of which can feature a message of the customer's choice on the first page). Hopefully these will inspire you if you're planning an adventure this year, or help you with ideas if you're looking for a message to go in a travel journal.

'Stamp' travel journal

First page of a travel journal - an ideal place for an inspirational travel quote!
These are the most popular quotes used by The Leaf Press's customers in travel journals:

"The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page."
Saint Augustine

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
Mark Twain

"The journey not the arrival matters."
T S Eliot

"Not all those who wander are lost."
J R R Tolkien

"A ship in harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are built for."
John Augustus Shedd

"The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes."
Marcel Proust

Here are some travel related quotes relating to travel companions:

"He travels the fastest who travels alone."
Rudyard Kipling

"Never go on trips with anyone you do not love."
Rudyard Kipling

"I have found out that there ain't no surer way to find out whether you like people or hate them than to travel with them."
Mark Twain

And finally, here is a quote that can't exactly be defined as 'inspirational', but did make me laugh....

"The cool thing about being famous is traveling. I have always wanted to travel across seas, like to Canada and stuff."
Britney Spears

Happy travelling!

Handmade wedding seating plans

I have been working on some new photos for the online shop to show The Leaf Press's handmade A2 wedding seating plans.

It's very difficult to illustrate to customers what their seating plan will look like as each seating plan is handmade and the customer can choose:

  • The design used (from The Leaf Press's wedding stationery ranges).
  • The mountboard colour.
  • The colour used for the one or two layers of backing card.
  • The layout - obviously this depends on the layout of tables there will be at the actual reception.

Here are the photos I have added to the seating plan product listing.

Seating plan in sage green and duck egg blue colour scheme using the Dots design. Horseshoe arrangement of tables with dessert/cake table in centre and labels to indicate where bar/cafe and dance floor are.

Seating plan in spring green and lilac on dark grey mountboard in the Bunting design. Long top table and six tables seating eight each.

Detail from a seating plan with light blue and silver colour scheme on an off-white mountboard in the Snowflake design.
