Danna and Michael treated their guests to a casual 4th of July barbecue for their wedding last summer. We digitally printed a custom map complete with adorable illustrations that was adhered to a red, white and blue invitation folio. Their barn party wedding invitations were actually inserts for the folio, and included a phone number for RSVPs. We love the checkered look on the outside of the folio — perfectly fitting for a barn party celebration!

We created these fun moving announcements for the Sonneborn family’s move from California to the nation’s capital. The folded card included a funny list of what’s in and out for the family — some of our favorites included power hoodies for power suits, and Silicon Valley for Scandal. The inside of the card shared the family’s new address, with a note to please visit soon. A custom envelope liner complete with iconic DC buildings added an extra patriotic finishing touch.
