We never grow tired of seeing letterpress invitations printed with the most creative wording. This little number submitted by Mark Harris Stationers is a fully customized baby shower invitation hosted by a pair of fairy godmothers! We love the placement of our giraffe motif in gossamer and butter letterpress inks.
We can customize any of our wedding designs to fit your occasion. Consider customizing our modern Hekla design for your baby shower invitations. This design would work well regardless of the gender of the baby – but boy oh boy do we love the phrasing that Inscriptions on the Boulevard used to announce that this is indeed for a baby boy.

Announcing a “blue eyed baby girl with chubby cheeks” calls for a letterpress baby announcement that is pretty and pink – and that’s exactly what the Inviting Place sent over for us to print! We fell in love with the soft and feminine look of whisper and mint used throughout.

Our wonderful friend, Deborah at RSVP Today in New York City submitted these beyond charming Hekla baby announcements to us for printing. What we really adore is the dove ink as a beautiful soft flood of color against the eye popping persimmon ink used for the text – these are looking edgy. These are a stand out piece all their own – and we also printed one color thank you cards – matching back to the baby announcements. Huge CONGRATS go out to the proud parents welcoming the arrival of their new baby boy!
