Monogrammed letterpress birth announcements

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!

Painterly rose gold birth announcements

We worked with our friends at Fat Cat Paperie to create Clio’s painterly rose gold birth announcements and coordinating envelope liners. Her parents drew inspiration from our Ellory invitation suite to create the cards, which paired a digitally printed watercolor wash with our rose gold foil. What a sweet way to welcome a new baby!

Rose Gold Birth Announcements

We can’t get enough of these sweet rose gold birth announcements! We digitally printed photos of new baby Brooke with her big brother Wyatt on our white bamboo paper, then printed the announcement details in rose gold foil on both sides. The whimsical font adds a playful, girly touch, and the Winnie the Pooh quote on the back adds the sweetest sentiment: “it’s so much more friendly with two!”

Ellie Letterpress Baby Announcements

While we love printing pretty letterpress stationery for all occasions, we get really excited every time we have the opportunity to print cute letterpress baby announcements. It’s one of the happiest occasions a family will celebrate and we secretly love the chance to print in fun child-like colors and design with cheerful baby-inspired motifs. These baby announcements were no exception. They feature our Ellie motif from our Social Occasions album, printed in tangerine and verbena on our 1-ply bamboo paper.  A big thank you to our friends at Paces Paper in Atlanta for bringing us this adorable customization!

Simple and sweet, with both feminine and neutral design details perfect for a baby girl.” Thanks so much to the folks at The Write Image for bringing us this beautiful design!
