Admittedly, Twin Ravens Press prints a lot more wedding invitations than birth announcements, and we totally love doing them, but there’s just something about creating sweet little cards for families with newborn babies that makes me smile. Earlier this month we printed this sweet little birth announcement for the boss of a really good friend, Emma. I met Emma earlier this year when she wanted to visit Twin Ravens Press, and since then she’s been coming by and helping us out on a regular basis with whatever needs to be done, which is really really cool. Emma studied design and printmaking while she was in school at the University of Pennsylvania and had been looking for a way to get back into it in Oregon. I’ve really loved having her around, not only as a helper, but as an awesome friend. So, when Emma proposed that we worked together on the announcements for her Pennsylvania boss’ first baby, how could I say no? Emma designed the super-cute, A7 letterpress announcement that you see above and she and I printed them together!
Nodumo’s announcements were printed in two ink colors: a light, bright, purple and a bright, earthy green on Crane Lettra Pearl White Paper. I love the design Emma created for the text of this announcement and I just love the fonts that she used! Plus, her flowers and butterflies are totally cute! We paired this announcement with a lighter, coordinating green envelope from Waste Not Paper Company and printed the family’s return address on the envelope flap in green ink.
Aren’t those totally adorable?!? If you or someone you know is expecting a baby in the near future, please contact us if you are interested in creating some custom baby announcements and/or shower invitations of your own! We would love to work with you!
