Ellie Baby Shower Invitations in Sky and Spring!

Our friends at House of Letters/La Casa de Letras  in Houston, Texas submitted these adorable letterpress baby shower  invitations! Our sky and spring inks look lovely in letterpress on our 1-ply white bamboo paper, and this precious design customization features our ever popular Smock Ellie motif! We think it’s the perfect design for a spring shower to celebrate an upcoming new life!

Party Ideas – Gift Wrap Paper Pinwheels

New England portrait and wedding photographer Brea McDonald recently planned a baby shower for her good friend, Amber. Hosted at The Blue Elephant in Saco, Maine, she pulled together a beautiful garden-inspired event using her collection of vintage table linens and a bunch of sweet DIY touches. The coolest part? The sweet DIY paper pinwheels she crafted using Smock gift wrap that she purchased at Gus & Ruby Letterpress, one of our beloved Smock dealers. We love this idea! Our gift wraps all feature colorful double-sided patterns printed on 100% post consumer recycled paper. It’s always a treat for us to see the unique ways people put our recycled wrapping paper to work, but these paper pinwheels are definitely one of our favorites!

Custom Smock Letterpress Invitations for All Occasions

At Smock we are no strangers to printing incredible customizations of our letterpress wedding invitations brought to us by the great stores we work with, but recently we’ve also been lucky enough to print some fabulous customized invitations for a wide range of other occasions. We love the idea of adpating a wedding invitation design for other events because really, letterpress is gorgeous for any celebration, isn’t it?

Cherry Blossom Bat Mitzvah letterpress invitation - Smock

This version of our Kurai design, brought to us by RSVP Today in New York City, is updated in papaya and silver inks and includes Hebrew text for a result that is youthful and elegant. We love how a simple pop of bright color, along with our Beaumont serif font, changes the look of the design so dramatically and makes it so perfect for inviting loved ones to celebrate a Bat Mitzvah.

Blue and green letterpress baby announcement - Smock

We love this take on the original Helani letterpress design customized as a perfectly adorable baby announcement, a variation on the Helani reception card for a client of Kustom Kreations in Lincolnshire, Illinois. Printed in clover and lake inks, with the addition of the very sweet Etienne script font, it’s bright and fresh and the perfect way to celebrate the birth of a beloved little one.

Custom Pink and orange letterpress invitation - corporate - Smock
Printed for Luxe Expressions in Atlanta, this invitation is for a bridal showcase hosted by The Atlantan Brides, and boasts bright raspberry and pewter inks with tangerine edge painting in a custom design based on Helani. The cheerful envelope liner is our Oesa pattern in fun tangerine ink and together it makes for a truly festive invitation. We love this use of a bold and bright letterpress design for a coporate event.

Elephant baby shower invitation - letterpress by Smock
Sweetly printed on our Ellie note card from Smock’s social line, this baby shower invitation is truly adorable. We can think of no better way to invite guests to celebrate the upcoming birth of a new loved one.

Farewell party invitation - letterpress - Smock
This version of Nevis was printed in lake and midnight inks for a farewell brunch and features edge painting in gold, which we absolutely love. Printed at our Save the Date size, the invitation is perfect for inviting loved ones to celebrate good food and good cheer and was brought to us by Arabesque of Naples in Naples, Florida.

Letterpress Baby Shower Invitations

This is one sweet and joyful letterpress invitation for a baby shower celebration! All of our wedding invitation designs can be customized to fit whatever occasion and style you have in mind — but we can also do something easily custom, like this invitation, where the client chose her favorite fonts, favorite inks (tangerine and sea mist – how cool!), and favorite pattern for the backing (Champlain!). This card came to us from Cotton Idea Studio in Laguna Beach, California.
