Client Customization – Letterpress Fashion Week Trifold Invitation

As some of you may have already seen, when we gave a sneak preview of this fun invitation on our Instagram account, we love that we were able to play a small part in this event! This fun letterpress trifold invitation incorporates some great design elements, all in one place!

CC-MEMPHIS-FASHION

Dauphine Press retailer Mrs. Post Stationery brought this project to us and we loved how they took our trifold format as a jumping off point and then incorporated elements from the event into the invitation design. What fun to work with such a stylish group. We knew it would have amazing results.

Memphis Fashion Week benefits the Emerging Memphis Designer Project and the Memphis Fashion Fund. The theme this year incorporated a natural color palette and patterns inspired by nature. The Copper and Ice Plant letterpress inks pair beautifully and help highlight the design elements. The wood pattern on the front cover mirrors their logo and the honeycomb elements are sprinkled throughout with a large hexagon shape framing the headline on the first panel and also used in a delicate manner on the last panel with a small scale honeycomb pattern. They used that last panel and placed a full-color fashion image over it so that the pattern framed the image. {Be sure to check out the @memphisfashionweek Instagram account for all of the non-stationery details including a must-see floral installation, also honeycomb inspired, in the VIP lounge created by @holidayflowersandevents!}.

Suite Spotlight – Beechwood Letterpress Bar Mitzvah Invitation

The letterpress printed wood grain pattern of our large square Beechwood invitation is the standout element on this Bar Mitzvah design. Used throughout the suite in buttercream ink, the wood grain pattern is artfully paired with a wide cocoa colored backer card, a green tea pocket folder and woodblock typeface. On both the inspiration board and final printed suite, a masculine, yet playful look is achieved.
