Allie’s Best Cards for July 2015

the summit blog post_July2015

We worked with Signed and Sealed by Steph in Denver, Colorado on this corporate invitation for Revenue Analytics’ annual convention called The Summit. The theme was The Art & Science of Revenue Generation, so we incorporated the science and technology concept in an artistic, but modern way.

The main invitation was a one inch thick acrylic with a sci-fi motherboard image printed on the back. The logo and event information etched on the front side for a three-dimensional effect. The custom designed mailer incorporated a pocket with an origami folded poster with detailed information about the schedule, speakers and agenda.

This invitation was sent to top business executives across the county, and made quite and impact upon arrival!

Allie’s Best Card for March 2015

This week we are sharing a Bat Mitzvah invitation designed with typography and texture in mind. This oversized invitation included ceremony, party, reply and direction details, so there was a lot of text! The blend of sans-fonts in varying scale were divided into different sections to keep it organized and easy-to-read. We kept the layout modern to let the texture of the gloss white ink pressed into brushed aluminum paper shine through.

For added details, we backed the piece in pink silk paper and created a matching address labels for the white 5″ x 13″ envelope.

This modern Bat Mitzvah invitation suite was designed with retailer E.A.F Fine Papers in New York City.

Allie’s Best Card for November 2014

Hosting a Thanksgiving party instead of a Christmas party?

This invitation was designed for a special family and personal friend to the allie munroe team. We layered different paper textures and colors together to create a Fall medley of colors. A metallic copper card printed with rich brown ink was grommeted on top of a dark brown wood grain card.

This invite was a wonderful way to invite friends together to give thanks and celebrate the season.

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 September 2014

Planning a tropical get-a-way wedding? How about this modern, wedding invitation celebrating John & Chad’s destination wedding? It was ordered through Signed and Sealed by Steph in Denver, Colorado.

We printed a custom monogram, tropical palms and clean typography in white and green ink on acrylic. The palms were carried through the set with different graphic treatments to be consistent without being too repetitive. To complete the set, we paired the modern themed invite with a rich, brown envelope with coordinating silky lime green liner.

Aloha!

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.
