Libby from Byrd + Bleecker in Fort Worth, Texas strikes again! Birth announcements are such a joy to print, particularly when they are original and beautiful in design. Peach and Ocean inks are a great blend for baby announcements and the use of design elements and photo space make this card a one-of-a-kind.

Brought to us by our friends at Alphagraphics in Chicago, the first runner-up in our Smock Design Contest is this truly customized letterpress social note in our Lashar design. It features fabulous edge painting, pattern backing and a gorgeous lined envelope for a look that is totally luxe and completely personalized. Letterpress printed in red and pool inks, the card itself showcases gorgeous red patterned backing in our champlain pattern. It’s edge painted in espresso and then paired with an envelope lined in our payette pattern in espresso ink. This is truly a piece where every detail was considered – the front of the card even features beautiful hand calligraphy in red ink. Smock’s Creative Director, Amy Graham Stigler, fell in love with this customization for it’s unique play between pattern and color. We’d love to be the recipients of one of these amazingly beautiful letterpress correspondence cards!
Thank you to Alphagraphics for sending us such a truly unique creation!
