Scholarly letterpress graduation invitations

To announce the graduation of J. Clayton Kennedy, these letterpress graduation invitations were sent to set the stage for a celebration to come. With Cornell as his alma mater, it only made sense that cardinal was chosen as the primary letterpress ink color within the design. Not only was this a celebration for J. Clayton, but it was also a way to honor the lives of both Barbara and Keith Kennedy who graduated from Cornell as well. Our Ivy League font emphasized this academic anniversary along with the mascot for an extra touch of school pride. The choice to keep the envelope liner simple in our Seneca pattern gave the suite an overall clean and polished aesthetic. We couldn’t have been happier to work on this set with our friends at the Preppy Pink Pony.
