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

baseball blog post_March2014-2

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!
