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 April 2014

We had fun creating a baseball themed B’Nai Mitvah invitation with E.A.F. Fine Papers in New York City. Twins Garett and Trevor picked a true baseball lover’s invitation with vintage style.

The invitation, return address seal and thank you card are letterpress printed on recycled chipboard in deep red ink. The custom printed grass pattern on the inside of the pouchette suggests a baseball diamond, very fitting for a party held at Citi Field, home of the New York Mets.

Batter up!

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 July 2013

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 May 2012

Happy Wednesday! Take a look our ABC (Allie’s Best card) for May. This urban funk invitation was for a Bar Mitzvah and came to us from Karla Conceptual Event Experiences, one of our favorite event  planning companies which happens to be in our hometown, Miami. The main invitation was printed on two sides of plastic and coordinating silver cards keep the set elegant enough for Mom and Dad’s friends.  If I was 13, I’d definitely want an invitation like this!
