Happy Leap Day everyone! Julie from Duet Letterpress sent over the most adorable letterpress invitations that she designed and printed for a first birthday party last summer. These invitations were inspired in part by the invitations that Julie created for her daughter Emily’s first birthday, featuring both an invitation to the birthday celebration along with a certificate marking important milestones during Lawson’s first year.
From Julie: To celebrate Lawson’s first birthday, his parents threw him a party inspired by Curious George. They wanted something similar to Em’s invitations, but in the style of his party. In addition to Curious George, the party was a vintage take on classic stories. Rustic red, pale blue, navy, and a cheerful yellow made up the party’s color palette.
Lawson’s foot and hand prints were letterpress printed true to size. Lawson was tiny at birth, and his feet were only 1 3/4″ long! We made the “year of firsts” card a different size from the actual invitation and bound them together with yellow twine. Finally, a two color, letterpress printed, wraparound mailing label was affixed to each pale blue envelope.
Thanks so much Julie!
