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 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 July 2014

This dreamy Bat Mitzvah invitation suite was designed with retailer Proper Notice in East Hills, New York.

We wanted to mix formality with youthful fun, so the main invitation has metallic gold ink printed on hot pink, translucent acrylic.  Coordinating insert cards, thank you notes and envelopes were created in the reverse color way of magenta foil on pale gold, shimmer paper. The swirly thick script combined with a thin, modern body text creates a striking contrast in style and scale.

Thank you to Amanda and her family and of course, Proper Notice for choosing us to create this set for your big day.

Allie’s Best Card for December 2013

abc_dec_2013_revised

Every December, Miami comes alive for Art Basel as thousands of art collectors and enthusiasts from all over the globe fill Miami to attend art openings and parties inspired by art. This December, it was an honor to create an invitation to The Facets of Art presented by Fendi. We kept the design simple and let the details make the big impression. The invitation is letterpress printed on thick, rigid board with gold ink and beveled with matching metallic ink. We complimented the look with a sophisticated shimmer gold envelope.

Fendi, it was a pleasure creating this invitation for your fabulous event! Wishing everyone a Happy Holidays, see you in 2014!

Gold has made a big comeback!  Our August ABC demonstrates the sophistication and simplicity of gold and black. We are featuring two similar invitations; the first is Dianna & Walter’s wedding invitation that was ordered through Uptowne Papers in Portland, Oregon. The engaged couple chose this square, black acrylic invitation with an metallic gold ink for their formal Saturday night wedding. The invitation arrived in an antique gold, shimmering envelope to match the text.

Amanda’s Bat Mitzvah set was ordered from Proper Notice in Roslyn Heights, New York. She chose the same materials and colors, but in our oversized, tall size. We added a big monogram at the top and added 2 oversized gold crystals for some youthful bling! Count on large, acrylic invitations to make an impact upon arrival.
