Allie’s Best Card for November 2013



Blacker and Kooby in New York City asked us to collaborate with Real Card Studio on this corporate invite for the Deerfield holiday party. Real Card Studio designed the front tone on tone letterpress card and we worked on the acrylic backing with the silver leaf texture and assembled them. This invite is the perfect representation of the holidays and winter time.

We have admired the work of Real Card Studio for years, so it was inspiring to work with Heather van Breda to create something unique together. Designing holiday cards and invitations always gets us in the holiday spirit.

Happy Holidays!



Allie’s Best Card for October 2013

OCt. 2013 beaux-arts-ball

Happy Halloween! This month’s ABC just screams FUN! Beaux Arts Miami asked us to create an invitation for the 61st Annual Beaux Arts Ball, the longest running costume ball in Miami, Florida. The 2013 ball was themed Wig + Stache Bash, which opened up a world of costume possibilities.

They asked us to design an invitation that was a little bit edgy, but upscale enough to match the event, which has a seated dinner, auction, dancing and requests black tie attire (for those not attending in costume). The graffiti-inspired set is complete with a custom stamp, RSVP set and sponsorship insert.  We layered the invite with 3 papers to give it extra thickness and create a contrasting navy blue back.  All insert cards tucked neatly into a sleek back pocket.  We worked with a local graffiti artist to create the logo – note the tiny white mustache on the A!

Allie’s Best Card for September 2013

2Our September ABC is all about the details! Ralph’s Bar Mitzvah invitation includes an unusual, ostrich-embossed vinyl envelope lined in a silky deep blue paper with a matching engraved ceremony  invitation. The Shabbat dinner card was simple and sophisticated with a reversed design of blue ink letterpress printed on white cotton paper.

Mixing materials into a cohesive set is a signature Allie Munroe design trait. The set is complimented by a party card in flexible plastic with a subtle frosted pattern of Ralph’s name layered covering the back.  The set is complete with a custom wrap around label with hand written calligraphy for each guest’s name.

Notice that the text is in Spanish? We are located in Miami, Florida, where Spanish often feels like the first language. We have staff that speak Spanish and Portuguese, so we are very comfortable working with our South and Central American clients.
