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!

How cute is this guy? Probably not as cute as little baby Marley no doubt is, but still – pretty adorable. Persimmon and Glacier letterpress inks work really well for this design submitted by Stationer on Sunrise– so playful and fun.

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!
