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!

Vintage tennis inspired Bat Mitzvah invitations

For Violet’s tennis inspired Bat Mitzvah invitations, we created a custom design influenced by preppy vintage tennis apparel – think 80’s country club, with brands like Lilly Pulitzer and Lacoste inspiring the look. Complete with argyle and alligators, the design layout mirrored the lines on a tennis court and was printed in a bright pink and green color palette.To bring the design to life, guests were encouraged to dress in their favorite tennis ensembles. We love the way this custom design reflected Violet’s passion for tennis — and really, who can resist such a fun reason to dress up?

Emerald Letterpress and Gold Foil

Courtesy of Gentry from Paper on the Avenue, a simple spin is put on the Tatra design, trading a second gold foil for emerald ink.  The result speaks for itself!  We love this customization almost as much as we love working with Gentry.  It’s great to see a perfect pairing of letterpress and foil as one tends to accentuate the other.

Using Emerald and Gold Shine foil the Tatra design looks splendid.
