Modern gold foil save the dates

Courtney and Sonny combined the layout from our Rainier save the date with the design elements from our Tatra suite to create their gold foil save the dates. Their modern #10 design featured gold shine foil stamping and sage green letterpress design accents, along with solid sage green envelope liners.

Lime + Ocean Letterpress Bat Mitzvah Invitations

This youthful take on our Tatra invitation combines a playful color palette of ocean, lime, and sea mist inks. We’re loving the pattern play between the design elements on these letterpress Bat Mitzvah invitations and the Rainier patterned envelope liners!

Tatra Save the Dates + Thank you cards in Purple Shine Foil

Our purple shine foil stamping makes these save the dates & thank you cards stand out – in a good way!  Submitted to us by our friends at The Village Invites in New York City, we adore the playful type on the Tatra design.

Thanking you with Gold Foil

Nothing says “thank you” like pressed foil! For an invitation order, it’s expected that a thank you card would be much simpler. However, Alisa from The Write Stuff in Tampa has found a way to enhance the card without sacrificing writing space. Using the two foils from the Tatra suite is a great way to incorporate foil into additional card types.

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.

NOFA-NY 2012 Benefit Invitations

We recently had the pleasure of working with the Northeast Organic Farming Association of New York on a letterpress invitation set for their 2012 Fall Benefit. We provided pro bono letterpress printing for the invitations, which feature our new Tatra design in azure and orchid inks. This year’s NOFA-NY benefit was held at Back Forty in New York City, and honored Frances Moore Lappé  (an accomplished author and cofounder of Food First: The Institute for Food and Development Policy and the Small Planet Institute), as well as Benjamin Shute and Lindsey Lusher Shute (owners of Hearty Roots Farm, a diversified vegetable farm and farm share program. Lindsey is also the Director of the National Young Farmers’ Coalition (NYFC)). Many thanks to NOFA-NY for giving us the opportunity to participate in such a special event!
