Check out these absolutely adorable baby announcements we printed a few weeks ago for a good friend, Heidi, and her fiancee Derek’s, brand-new baby girl, Veronica! Heidi and I played soccer together several years ago, when I was in college, so I was super excited to design and print the announcements for her first child!
Veronica’s announcements are an A2 size (measuring 4.25″x5.5″) and were printed on Crane Lettra Pearl White paper in two ink colors: chocolate brown and a light, bright purple. When we talked about what sort of design she wanted for her baby announcements, Heidi told me that she had been receiving tons and tons of baby gifts with owls on them, so owls just seemed like the right motif. At the time that we started designing, Heidi wasn’t sure if she was having a boy or a girl, so we also figured that depending on the colors we used, an owl design could work wonderfully for either gender. As you can see, though, Veronica ended up being a girl, so we used purple as the accent color for the owl, tree leaves and her name on the announcement.
Another thing I just love about baby announcements is the fun, whimsical fonts you can use for them! For Veronica’s announcements we used a mix of Tart Workshop’s “Silverstein” for the main font and “Leroy Brown” for the name. Totally cute, don’t you think?!?
Heidi and Derek are getting married this upcoming spring and we’re also designing and letterpress printing their Save-the-Date cards and wedding invitations! Check back in down the road if you want to get a peek at those!
Thanks so much Heidi & Derek! You guys are awesome!
