Watercolor baby shower invitations with platinum foil accents

Thanks to the help of our friends at the Papery of Philadelphia, we were able to create these darling watercolor baby shower invitations for Megan. Our Vista design has never looked sweeter with the addition of little star motifs and a die-cut shape added to create a more youthful feel. The wording popped off the page in our Platinum Shine foil with a soft, subtle watercolor background behind it. With a nod to Doctor Seuss written across the top of the page and a map of the world as the envelope liner, it’s easy to see that everyone wishes a big, bright future for this little boy to come!

Monogrammed letterpress birth announcements

We worked with Adrienne at Ipanema Press to create these monogrammed letterpress birth announcements to mark Ashton’s arrival. We letterpress printed the petite S-5 cards in vine ink on our thick, 2-ply white bamboo paper. Adrienne created an adorable patterned envelope liner featuring custom-illustrated airplanes and Ashton’s initials in shades of green and pale blue. Such a sweet way to spread the news!

Painterly rose gold birth announcements

We worked with our friends at Fat Cat Paperie to create Clio’s painterly rose gold birth announcements and coordinating envelope liners. Her parents drew inspiration from our Ellory invitation suite to create the cards, which paired a digitally printed watercolor wash with our rose gold foil. What a sweet way to welcome a new baby!

Gender neutral baby shower invitations

These sophisticated gender neutral baby shower invitations from Georgia Ann’s Paperie pair pewter and taupe letterpress inks on our ivory bamboo paper. We worked with Georgia to create a custom design using fonts and elements from our design library (like our lamby motif and our pavee border), and created a playful patterned envelope liner using our fleming pattern to match the whimsical invitation design.

Ocean inspired letterpress Baptism invitations

We worked with our friends at Mark Harris Stationers to create 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!

Letterpress Giraffe Baby Shower Invitation

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.

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.
