Several months ago, we designed and printed some circus inspired Save the Dates for a birthday party at the American Museum of Natural History. We also worked on the invitations for the party, albeit with a slightly different theme. The inspiration was Out of Africa, a romantic film starring Meryl Streep, set in Kenya. Illustrations of lush foliage, letterpress printed in rich black ink, framed the card. The edges were painted in silver foil, giving the whole set a luxe feel, fitting of a black tie event.
We designed and printed these Save the Dates for a birthday party at the American Museum of Natural History, here in NYC. The design was inspired by vintage circus posters, complete with a banner carrying elephant. The elephant was letterpress printed in silver, and has a bit of shine that plays well with the bright red of the text. We can just imagine how fun a night at the museum would be - hopefully without any dinosaurs or elephants springing to life.
We're finally starting to see little signs of Spring everywhere, and that has us seeing green. We have a lot of green on our online shop, like these letterpress clover and beetle greeting cards and new clover coasters. A beetle is only this cute when its printed on a card in neon green, and not scurrying around your home!
These letterpress birthday invitations were so fun to design and print. Our client, Christine, threw a surprise party for her husband's 40th, and wanted to send out fun and bright invites. We loved her idea of a big bowl of spaghetti and meatballs with a candle sticking out. It's the perfect image for an Italian style birthday dinner.
We designed this fun map, highlighting a few key places for guests of the party. The minimal design fits in perfectly with the invitation and information card. All of the cards were edge painted in bright red, to match the bowl of spaghetti.
Letterpress coasters are such a fun way to commemorate an important event. They're great for any celebration, whether it be a 60th birthday party or an announcement for a wedding yet to come. They can be used as a cute keepsake for guests, as well as a nice way to protect your coffee table.

This might have been the first time we had the chance to design and print Sweet Sixteen invitations and it was FUN!
We love all the different letterpress components to this set: the pink "16", the invitations themselves and that lovely sparkly black folder.
The colors and design were chosen to be youthful but not childish. We're really pleased with how these came out!
Now we're excited to get more birthday invitation printing opportunities!
