mindy and chris welcomed their precious little poppy claire into this world in may. in addition to their new bundle of joy, they were also planning a cross country move to los angeles. talk about a life change!! so they decided to combine both announcements in a bright + cheery letterpress package. the letterpress birth announcement was printed in a fresh poppy red on a bright white double thick cotton paper stock. poppy’s adorable photo (shot by kevin monko) was attached with a patterned washi tape. the moving card was digitally printed and finished with the line say yes to new adventures. the cards were mailed out in a transparent vellum envelope filled with confetti and wrapped with a matching address label. this happy little package was inspired by this gorgeous hand lettered blanket, from how joyful, that mindy received as a gift. we are so excited to share this package, it makes us so happy. we wish this new little family the best of luck in la la land!!
we get so excited when couples come back to us asking us to design for more of life’s celebrations, especially when they’re having a baby! dara and her soon-to-be baby girl will be showered this weekend at terrain at styer’s in glen mills, pennsylvania. she came to us with a vision of a bohemian style baby shower invitation that included a watercolor/dip-dyed look and casual fonts. the invitation was paired with a bookmark size note to let guest know to bring books for the baby’s library. the pieces were placed inside a digitally addressed kraft envelope which was lined with a feminine floral watercolor pattern. we had way too much fun working on these and can’t wait to see pics of the special day!
pam and pat delivered holiday cards with a special announcement last year: the birth of their precious baby boy, ryan. the couple wished to share their exciting news while also sending holiday wishes, and they loved the idea of combining the two into one card, since their son was a precious gift last year. their traditional 5×7 formatted cards were created with the combo and featured personal pictures by erin joyce photography. with finalized details, the couple’s cards were then mailed to family and friends in metallic silver envelopes for a special touch. we are thrilled with the completion of this birth announcement, holiday card combo and congratulate pam and pat on the birth of their bundle of joy!
shannon and matt celebrated the arrival of their first child this november at the gardenville hotel in pipersville, pennsylvania with friends and family. for their shower invitation, the couple loved the idea of white puffy clouds, the stork and a neutral color palette (since the baby’s gender will be a surprise!) the light gray envelopes were digitally printed and addressed to guests in a hand-written style font. we wish the couple lots of happiness during this special time and we can’t wait to meet their bundle of joy!
a special package by the name of oliver jordan was delivered to the stricker family in april of last year! his elated parents wanted his birth announcement to reflect their love of traveling. we were inspired by vintage airmail for this piece, which featured the most adorable photo of oliver sporting a knit pilot’s hat. his patriotic red and blue letterpress announcement was wrapped in firecracker bakers twine. the final touch was a kraft luggage tag with passport style stamps, complete with a stamped custom illustration of the pennsylvania hospital where oliver was welcomed into the world. these happy little packages were sent in navy envelopes with a coordinating striped address label and a special delivery stamp. we hope oliver’s life has been full of many adventures already!

sweet baby henry was introduced into this world on february 26th! we had the privilege of designing his parents’ star studded wedding stationery back in 2013. his mother, anne, requested an announcement that showcased his newborn photo on the front and his 2 week photoshoot on the back. we paired a multi-color watercolor stripe with a mix of fonts to achieve a fresh and classic feel. a simple thank you note was also included and both cards mailed out in a vibrant blue envelope, perfect for a baby boy!
in october we celebrated the baptism for dee’s daughter, mila. her ombré watercolor invitation was printed on a thick uncoated, cotton stock. each invite was mailed in a gold glitter lined (of course) mint green envelope that was hand addressed in gold ink.
with valentine’s day quickly approaching, we are happy to share miss mila’s first birthday party invitation! i (dee) just love the wizard of oz and used that as my inspiration for her somewhere over the rainbow party theme. i designed a flat, double-sided card full off happy hearts, rainbows, arrows and hand-drawn fonts. our friend ralph of pink bike ralph, screen printed them with the most beautiful shimmery gold metallic ink i have ever seen. i tied them all with rainbow or red ruby slipper ribbon and then mailed them in red envelopes which i hand addressed in metallic gold ink. i can’t wait to share her big day with you all!
