Allie’s Best Card for July 2013

 

Blog-post-luke

Downright smashing! Luke’s parents requested an invitation that expressed the seriousness of a Bar Mitzvah as well the fun to follow at his tennis-themed reception. They said make sure it is sporty but “not too tennis-y.”  We think we achieved this balance with a grey and white set with touches of  bright yellow. One of our favorite details is the custom designed ‘Luke’ icon.

This month’s ABC was ordered through invitation studio Paper Treats in Miami, Florida.  Party at the net!

Allie’s Best Card for June 2013

 

Anchor blog postHappy Summer! Here at Allie Munroe, we can go to beach year-round, but in other places, not so much, making beach parties extra special. This month, we’re featuring an over the top save-the-date card for Victor’s 40th birthday.  We worked on this with retailer The Write Invite in Dallas, Texas.

This invite is printed on frosted acrylic with ocean blue ink. The design is clean and simple using a larger type to highlight the important details. We added the anchor emphasizing the big 4-0, and finished it off with a crisp, white envelope with matching typography.  Touches of red can be added for a more patriotic or nautical feel. Or, use a craft paper envelope for an earthy, natural first impression.

Remember the sunscreen!

Allie’s Best Card for May 2013

ABC steph-spencer

This month’s ABC is an invitation that celebrates Stephanie & Spencer’s tropical garden wedding. We worked with event planner Lasso the Moon in Miami, Florida  and created a subtle peacock graphic (inspired by the entrance of the venue) to print on each piece of the set. All pieces were letterpress printed on thick board; we added a die cut and a custom patterned liner to make it unique to this wedding.  A modern RSVP postcard completes the set.

Allie’s Best Card for April 2013

Spring showers bring April flowers! This month we are featuring Andreina and Christopher’s wedding suite featuring a laser cut lotus flower, ordered through Karla Conceptual Events, one of our favorite event planners. The flower is carried through the set with different graphic treatments to be consistent without too repetitive.  From the blind oversized lotus flower on the RSVP card to the custom stamp that completes the set, this is a modern take on a traditional floral wedding invitation.  Deep purple hand calligraphy on a thick 6 x 9 box like mailer made sure it arrived in mail in perfect condition.
