Ocean inspired letterpress Baptism invitations

We created a monogrammed version of our Walsh invitation design for Georgi’s letterpress Baptism invitations. Printed in ocean and midnight inks, the invitations feature a modern font and a pebble inspired patterned backing. Starfish and seahorse motifs added character to the set, which was letterpress printed on our white bamboo paper.

Custom Roxbury Letterpress Birth Announcements

We love the pattern play on these sweet birth announcements that we printed for Luke’s arrival last summer. Inspired by our Roxbury design, these letterpress birth announcements pair sea mist and midnight inks on our white paper, with a digitally printed black & white photo as the main focus. A striped patterned envelope liner added some contrast to the chevron patterning used on the announcement.

Custom confetti inspired letterpress birth announcements

We created Blakely’s letterpress birth announcements and social notes by combining playful patterns in chartreuse and silver inks. Letterpress printed on our white bamboo paper, the announcement featured confetti-like dots from our Pearl pattern as well as our Bodin border. We digitally printed petite social notes and matching envelope liners in our Pearl pattern to match. What a sweet way to welcome a newborn!

Hekla Letterpress Baby Shower Invitations

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.

Pretty Pink Polka Dotted Baby Announcements

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.

Hekla Baby Announcements Welcome Baby Boy

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!

Letterpress Birth Announcements Welcoming New Baby Boy
