Colorful Bar Mitzvah invitation booklets

We worked with Simply Put to create this memorable grommeted invitation for Lewis’ Bar Mitzvah celebration in Atlanta. These colorful Bar Mitzvah invitation booklets contain captured moments from the family’s trip abroad paired with sweet annotations commenting about their experience. There is something to be said for an invitation that engages the guest in an interactive way and serves as a keepsake at the same time. After creating this unique set, we are confident that this was an unforgettable celebration!

Foil stamped Bar Mitzvah invitations with ombre background

Our friend Desiree Jacobs at Heirloom Paper Company took our Amira design and put a fresh spin on it when designing these foil stamped Bar Mitzvah invitations for Jonathan. Instead of keeping the orientation vertical, they decided to hold the card horizontally, creating a unique take on the original design. The background was printed in Peacock, which was a perfect compliment to the Tawny Matte foil wording over top. The vibrant Peacock color was then carried onto the reply card and to the pattern on the envelope liner that tied everything together beautifully. A memorable monogram was also formed from the Hello Beautiful script which added a touch of whimsy to this charming set.

Foil stamped Bar Mitzvah invitations from a sports lover’s dream

Our friends at Simply Put decided to combine copper shine and teal shine in a refreshing way to create these unique foil stamped Bar Mitzvah invitations. You can also see a subtle blind deboss background added for a touch of texture to this colorful card. The suite included two versions of the reply card and an eye-catching party card with football shaped typography dressed up in copper chine foil. We can’t think of a better way to add a fun yet memorable twist to a party card! You can easily tell by looking at the suite that Max is a true sports lover and we would agree that his invitation suite definitely has game!

Emerald green letterpress Bar Mitzvah invitations

We love collaborating with our dealers to create custom invitations for all of our clients, but it’s a nice treat when we get the opportunity to collaborate with them for personal orders! Earlier this year, we had the opportunity to work with Evvy Diamond, co-owner of Nota Bene Paper, to create her son’s emerald green letterpress Bar Mitzvah invitations. We customized our Trenton design for the occasion, and created an invitation, party card, and reply card along with lined invitation envelopes. Beyond setting the tone for the celebration, the suite helped inspire a variety of cool party accessories and favors, including custom water bottles, personalized straws, and foil stamped drink stirrers!

Texas Longhorns inspired Bar Mitzvah invitations

We worked with Mieke at Simply Put to create these iconic Bar Mitzvah invitations for Jordan’s December celebration. The party was held in Atlanta at the College Football Hall of Fame, and the invitations helped set the tone with details inspired by Jordan’s favorite team — the Texas Longhorns. Thoughtful touches were included throughout this modern set — we loved the play-on-words used on some of the pieces, like the “kickoff” for the Friday evening services, and “hook ’em” for the Saturday night party card. Guests were asked to share their favorite college team on the reply card, a detail that was incorporated as a final touch at the actual event.
