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!

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.
