Allie’s Best Card for April 2015

Royal? Cerulean? Indigo? Cobalt? Regardless of what you want to call them, bright blues are HOT right now for bar and bat mitzvahs. It is also a popular color for girl and boy b’nai mitzvahs. We combined blue with neutrals white and grey for Matthew’s bar mitzvah invitation suite above.

The main invitation is printed on blue acrylic with an all-over coating of smoke grey ink, leaving the name clear to let the custom liner shine through as it emerges from the envelope. The custom liner is a pattern of logos, text and icons that represent Matthew’s favorite sports, cities and interests.

We  mixed different materials and printing methods throughout set, but kept it cohesive with color and typography. We had the privilege of working on this set with retailer  Precious Papers in West Harrison, New York.

Allie’s Best Card for March 2014

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!

Allie’s Best Card for September 2012

To many of us, Fall means one thing–football!  This perfectly timed football Bar Mitzvah invitation was produced with Precious Papers in New York. The invitation was letterpress printed in two colors, beveled, and backed with football textured paper. The staggered insert cards were wrapped in a football paper belly band to match. This look is classic, befitting a traditional Bar Mitzvah ceremony, but with a fun youthful touch that every 13-year-old football fan would love. If you would like to know more about the invitation or want something similar, please contact us!
