Allie’s Best Cards for July 2015

the summit blog post_July2015

We worked with Signed and Sealed by Steph in Denver, Colorado on this corporate invitation for Revenue Analytics’ annual convention called The Summit. The theme was The Art & Science of Revenue Generation, so we incorporated the science and technology concept in an artistic, but modern way.

The main invitation was a one inch thick acrylic with a sci-fi motherboard image printed on the back. The logo and event information etched on the front side for a three-dimensional effect. The custom designed mailer incorporated a pocket with an origami folded poster with detailed information about the schedule, speakers and agenda.

This invitation was sent to top business executives across the county, and made quite and impact upon arrival!

Allie’s Best Card for October 2014

October’s ABC just screams MYSTERY! Beaux Arts Miami asked us to create an invitation for the 62nd Annual Beaux Arts Ball, the longest running costume ball in Miami, Florida. The ball, benefiting the Lowe Art Museum at the University of Miami, was themed Midnight in the Garden of Good & Evil.

They asked us to design an invitation that was a little bit edgy, but upscale enough for the event, which has a seated dinner, auction, dancing and requests black tie attire (for those not attending in costume).

The invitation was printed on flexible plastic on both sides to create a contrast in texture. Distressed typography matched the rustic look of the leaf and vine details at the top and bottom. The set is complete with an RSVP set and sponsorship inserts printed on a gold shimmer paper. Boo!

Allie’s Best Card for March 2014

CHARLIE blog post_March2014

Grey invitations are HOT!  We designed Charlie’s Bar Mitzvah invitation with E.A.F. Fine Papers in New York City.

It is printed on flexible plastic with an all-over coating of smoke grey, leaving clear text that lets the bright liner shine through as it emerges from the envelope.When designing the set, we had fun mixing typography into an angled layout printed on a square format.

We love the rich variation in tones from the various grey materials in the suite, but thought it needed a little pop.  Adding a liner of shocking green kept it young and fun for a 13-year-old boy.

We hope you like it too!

Allie’s Best Card for February 2014

We’re feeling in the pink from working on this Bat Mitzvah invitation, ordered through The Party Package in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania.

For this set, the phrase “The beauty is the details” says it all. We mounted an engraved, dark grey invitation on the front of a thick board, backed it in dark grey paper and then edged it in hot pink ink to match the name. The set was completed with a hot pink heavy weight envelope lined in matching grey paper. The combination of dark grey paper, white clean type and a hot pink script name created a mix of modern elegance and youthful femininity.

It was such a pleasure working on this beauty, until next time!
