1st Birthday Party Invite

Designed by Valerie at Spark for her daughter's 1st birthday party.
Details: crane lettra 220# fluorescent white cover in pink and brown inks as well as a blind hit. Envelope is also crane lettra fluorescent white with ink jet return and chocolate text weight liner.

So, not every child needs to have a letterpress-printed invite on the thickest paper imaginable, unless your parents are the lead pressman (Jim) and art director (Valerie) at Spark. This was a fun project for both of them. All too often they never get to print personal stationery because they are too busy keeping up with client orders. As their daughter's 1st birthday came closer, they knew they were going to print her invite no matter what. We hope you enjoy this fun design as much as we do.

Blind Letterpress for Float Paperie, Chicago

This piece we printed for Float Paperie, Chicago, is an excellent example of blind letterpress. The Crane Lettra 110# cotton cover always takes a nice impression, so all of the artwork in the blind hit really stands out on paper.

For those of you who are not familiar with letterpress pricing, we consider this a 2-color letterpress piece. The blind hit is still a run through the press even though no ink is used. Consider using a blind hit on business and personal stationery. It is a subtle yet beautiful way to make an impression.
