Modern Monogrammed Letterpress Bar Mitzvah Invitations

We love the bold monogram used on these modern Bar Mitzvah invitations. Printed in a cool pairing of silver + grass inks on our white bamboo paper, these custom invitations feature Hebrew text and a fun party card.

Minimalistic Helani Bar Mitzvah Invitations

Write Next Door in Bethpage, New York sent in these contemporary Helani Bar Mitzvah invitations for printing.  Letterpressed in our espresso and grass inks, this earthy color palette helps keep this set looking youthful, but sophisticated and the three letter monogram at the very top is so classic.  The envelope is lined in our merritt pattern which we also adore because it matches perfectly to the bond border on the invitation.

Custom Starfish Letterpress Bar Mitzvah Invitations

We’ve been seeing a flood of nautical inspired letterpress invitations coming through our shop lately – and they are bringing smiles along the way.  These custom letterpress starfish Bar Mitzvah invitations were submitted to us by our friend, Rita at Creative Parties in Bethesda, Maryland.  Printed in a sea-inspired color palette – these modern invitations still look classic.  The back of the invitations are offset in our gala pattern in ocean ink -which we believe can only add to the anticipation of this momentous occasion.  We adore seeing fun embellishments like these coordinating so well with the rest of the set.  Each piece in this suite incorporates a sea element – and we just adore it!

Keepin’ it Sophisticated with these clean cut Bar Mitzvah invitations

We don’t think you can get more clean cut and classic than these custom letterpressed Bar Mitzvah invitations.  This simple set was submitted by our wonderful friend, Nancy at Reed Cohen Paper & Events in New York, NY.  Letterpress printed in our midnight ink with the most modern border as an accent helps keep this set downright classy.  Staying in the lines of tradition, the Hebrew characters in the upper right hand corner symbolize the traditional Bais Hey blessing.  Our 2-ply card stock is always a popular choice for Bar and Bat Mitzvah invitations. We love how the block font brings a masculine feel to this invitation suite.

Exciting Bat Mitzvah Letterpress Invitation

Trissa Garvis is one of our Smock Everyday Reps who sent us her first custom letterpress order. This was so amazing, and we hope she sends some more! Bar and Bat Mitzvah cards are known for their bright colors and elaborate designs, and this letterpress invitation set certainly delivers on that reputation. With the multiple fonts and custom artwork, these invitations look very busy, but in exactly the right way. Sometimes it’s hard to fit a lot of design in without overwhelming the invitation, but this set just looks exciting! Excellent work, Trissa!

New Letterpress Invitation Designs from Smock

You need these letterpress invitations now. We’re serious. Our 14 brand new letterpress wedding invitation designs just launched on our web site and they’re available in stores right now, too. Some of our favorites include the chevron-crazy Hekla, the preppy formal Breton, and the romantic flutter of Aneto. We didn’t feel like stopping after 14 designs, though — the new album features a customization of each design, so we’ve doubled the amount of pretty you can choose from. We only spent, oh, about 9 months on this release. But it was worth it.

Planning a Bar or Bat Mitzvah? Wedding? Birthday Party? Rehearsal Dinner? Baby shower?? These new designs are perfect for special occasions, and they’re all completely customizable, so go crazy & make one your own. We think you’ll love the die-cuts (or perhaps some hand bordering?), and the new gift wrap liners are pretty cool, too. We even have coordinating postage stamps to go with each new design.

Dying to get your hands on some of that gorgeous bamboo?? Visit a Smock dealer & see the new collection today.

Smock Design Contest Honoree – Custom Mitzvah Invitations from LS Amster Co

These show-stopping letterpress bar mitzvah invitations were brought to us by LS Amster Co in Scarsdale, New York and we were happy to honor them in our most recent Smock Design Contest. The design was inspired by the boy’s love of swimming. The “scales” of our Odeon pattern on the reverse paired with our Phelps pattern for the envelope liner evokes the feeling of water and movement. The bold peacock blue ink is refreshing and is balanced by the earthy espresso. It’s a stunning combination that we just can’t get enough of and we’re proud to have worked with LS Amster on this lovely design.

Smock Design Contest – Custom Bar Mitzvah Invitations

Brought to us by Perfectly Personal by Jen in Chappaqua, New York our next Smock Design Contest honoree is a fabulous custom letterpress bar mitzvah invitation. Printed on our white bamboo paper, the design is letterpress printed in blind deboss and midnight ink, corner rounded, and features an envelope lined in our sinclair pattern in taupe. A letterpress insert invites Mikey’s friends to celebrate with him at a party later in the evening. We love the look of this set – it’s masculine, youthful and sets the perfect tone for this celebration.

Smock’s Letterpress and Recycled Gift Wrap featured by Stationery Trends!

Here at Smock, we absolutely love Stationery Trends a fabulous trade magazine dedicated to all things stationery and paper. This year we were thrilled to be featured in Stationery Trends several times, including a piece about our double-sided 100% post consumer recycled gift wrap in our Calliope design in the winter issue…

Smock in Stationery Trends!

In May, with the National Stationery Show fast approaching and just in time for Smock’s first birthday, we were completely excited to see one of our letterpress birthday cards, our Happy Happy Birthday to You card, on the cover of the spring 2009 issue of Stationery Trends! Coincidentally, the magazine was also celebrating their first birthday and wanted to showcase a great birthday card on the cover. We’re sincerely honored that they chose one of ours! Inside that same issue, they also showcased a beautiful customization of one of our letterpress wedding invitation designs, Rhon, which we printed as a letterpress bat mitzvah invitation.
