Allie’s Best Card for August 2014

This invitation makes us want to run away and join the circus! We designed this set with one of our local retailers, Paperazzi in Weston, Florida.

This whimsical invitation was printed on white flexible plastic, and designed by combining traditional and decorative fonts to set the mood of the party while maintaining an upscale feel. A bright red envelope, paired with a sparkly gold glitter liner and gold wrap label, makes a great first impression.

Allie’s Best Card for May 2014

This month we are sharing one of our favorites for girly-girls, an invitation ordered through Jenny’s Paper Ink in Atlanta, Georgia.

This one is truly custom! We printed on white flexible plastic with raspberry ink and a hot pink glitter overlay on her name to add a touch of sparkle. To top that off, we die cut the oversized invitation into her name and sent in a heavy weight envelope. A pairing of san serif type with a feminine swirly script kept the design fun, yet modern.

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 January 2014

This month we are sharing two of our recent favorites created with retailer The Write Invite in Dallas, Texas.

We are loving this “happy” photo card. Designed for a very special family, it is an oversized thick board with a modern “happy” foil stamped across the front side, and three photos and family names on the back. Matching aqua foil edges complete the look. You cannot help but feel happy as you pull it out of a large, 5″ x 13″ aqua blue envelope.

Our second card is a white flexible, plastic card with a sweet message, “Wishing you flurries of fun this Holiday Season” printed in aqua blue glitter. We really wanted the design to feel festive for the holidays, so we added extra swirls to a beautiful script greeting. A photo was mounted to the back with a glitter border for some added glitz.

Two great ways to send lots of happy vibes to friends and family! Which one is your favorite?

XOXO, allie
