Hot Pink + Robin’s Egg Roxbury Bat Mitzvah Invitations and social notes

Letterpress printed in a vibrant color pairing of hot pink and Robin’s egg blue, this customization of our Roxbury invitation is both festive and fun. We created reply cards, a party card, and a brunch card to accompany Ava’s Bat Mitzvah invitations, along with simple social notes to match. Each piece was sent out in style: the invitation and social note envelopes each featured colorful patterned envelope liners, and we even created a custom stamp design to match the set!

Cool Custom Letterpress + Foil Stamped Bat Mitzvah Invitations

We worked with Jenny’s Paper, Ink! to create these custom Bat Mitzvah invitations for Ilana. The set was printed in bright blue Robin’s Egg ink on our white bamboo paper and accented with silver matte foil for a youthful yet sophisticated look. Our modern Biel pattern was used on the invitation and party card, and our Clermont calligraphy font highlighted Ilana’s name along with other important lines of text.

Design Contest Winner: Sophisticated & Sweet Bat Mitzvah Invitations

We have the lovely Jenny from Jenny’s Paper, Ink! to thank for these incredible letterpress Bat Mitzvah invitations that we recently had the pleasure of printing. The invitations have a sweet, youthful look and feature fun fonts and bold colors. Jenny said the inspiration for these Bat Mitzvah invitations began with a custom sleeve – Sari fell in love with the idea of keeping the entire invitation set together without using a typical folio or bellyband. From there, they created a logo that could be used throughout the event by pairing our Louise font with our Dawson cartouche. Next came the patterns and colors — Sari’s favorite color is blue, so robin’s egg was a perfect choice, and adding black as a second ink color gave the invitation a bold look. The Champlain pattern was used in different ways throughout the entire set, and complemented the playful fonts and bold ink combination beautifully.  The finished product was amazing and set the tone for a fabulous weekend with family and friends. Congratulations and thank you to Jenny for sending us such a stunning invitation set!

Design Contest Winner: Black + Robin’s Egg Inks create Brilliant Beauty

Take a peek at these vibrant and high spirited save the dates!  We have Melanie at Salutations in Charlotte, North Carolina to thank for these beauties!  We were even able to get a bit of a back story to find out where the inspiration came to create a design so eye catching and brilliant. The bride loved the bold pattern of our Evans design and wanted to use our robin’s egg ink color to truly make a statement.  We love to see couples choosing more modern and chic designs for their save the dates, even when they’re planning on sending a super formal invitation suite like these guys are planning.  The happy couple said that their save the dates totally matched their fun and bubbly personalities — and we couldn’t agree more! Thanks so much to Salutations for sending us such a fun save the date set — we can’t wait to see the invitations!
