International Biscuit Festival Invitations

Now this sounds like a fun party!  Sarah from The Happy Envelope sent over these invitations that she printed for the upcoming International Biscuit Festival (who knew?) over Memorial Day Weekend in Knoxville.  Sarah combined multiple typefaces and letterpress printing in chocolate and chartreuse inks for a southern-meets-swanky invitation to the festival’s fundraising brunch.  Any Top Chef fans out there?  You might recognize the name of the festival’s guest chef

From Sarah: Everybody loves biscuits! The International Biscuit Festival is a huge weekend event held in downtown Knoxville, Tennessee.  This year, Guest Chef Michelle Bernstein will be participating in a special fundraising event to raise money for Share Our Strength, so the hosts of the event wanted to send out invitations that were luxurious and swanky while still maintaining the casual, laid-back mood of the Biscuit Festival.


The invitation and reply postcard are letterpress printed in chocolate ink on ultra-thick 220 lb board.  The reverse side picnic pattern on the invitation is letterpress in a chartreuse ink.  All pieces were wrapped up together with mocha and white threaded baker’s twine in multiple wrap with knot.  The Biscuit Benefit Dinner pieces was printed on standard 110# letterpress stock and matted with chocolate brown stock to create a dark border on the white paper.  Khaki envelopes were flat printed with chocolate ink reply card.
