We worked with Adrienne at Ipanema Press to create these monogrammed letterpress birth announcements to mark Ashton’s arrival. We letterpress printed the petite S-5 cards in vine ink on our thick, 2-ply white bamboo paper. Adrienne created an adorable patterned envelope liner featuring custom-illustrated airplanes and Ashton’s initials in shades of green and pale blue. Such a sweet way to spread the news!

This week Baby Fever hits the Smock blog! We’re sharing some of our favorite recent baby announcements and baby shower invitations. Starting us off on the right foot is this darling letterpressed baby announcement submitted by Salutations. Baby Grey’s family chose our free crab motif to add a personal touch but you can select from our comprehensive options for the one that best suits you!

Announcing a “blue eyed baby girl with chubby cheeks” calls for a letterpress baby announcement that is pretty and pink – and that’s exactly what the Inviting Place sent over for us to print! We fell in love with the soft and feminine look of whisper and mint used throughout.

Baby announcements are just plain fun! We love the adorable little dragon artwork that was submitted by Union Street Papery. He looks like he’s excited about the new arrival too, as he playfully bounds over the granby pattern. The use of the same pattern for the liner was a great addition when chosen to be printed in reverse.

We want to thank our friends at Georgia Ann’s Paperie for this wonderful baby shower invitation. The lion motif makes this the perfect invitation for such a special event.

Our wonderful friend, Deborah at RSVP Today in New York City submitted these beyond charming Hekla baby announcements to us for printing. What we really adore is the dove ink as a beautiful soft flood of color against the eye popping persimmon ink used for the text – these are looking edgy. These are a stand out piece all their own – and we also printed one color thank you cards – matching back to the baby announcements. Huge CONGRATS go out to the proud parents welcoming the arrival of their new baby boy!

Union Street Papery in San Francisco, California submitted these darling baby announcements to us for printing. We think these announcements letterpress printed in cherry + sky inks welcome baby boy in the most adorable fashion. Here at Smock we offer a wide array of motifs for baby – so there’s definitely a lot to inspire proud parents. We fell in love with the bright color palette – which we thought was perfect for a new baby boy.

Here at Smock we don’t think there is anything cuter than letterpressed baby announcements! Take a look at these recently printed Loire baby announcements submitted to us by our great friends at Houston Invitation Service in Houston, Texas. Our blush ink blends so incredibly onto our pearl bamboo paper. We think these are just darling and that they welcome a sweet baby girl into the world in the most precious way! With a custom calligraphy monogram at the very top-this adds a truly personalized feel. Congratulations to the proud family!

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.
