Baby Announcements | Adelaide Joyce


It’s always a huge compliment when another design, stationery, or other paper-related professional hires you to letterpress print work for them personally.  Twin Ravens Press began working with very talented calligrapher, Katie Hoffman, of Katie Hoffman Ink, in Corvallis, Oregon, not all that long ago, and we were thrilled when she hired us to letterpress print her first-born daughter’s baby announcements this past fall!



Adelaide’s announcements are simple, beautiful, and classic.  Katie did all of the calligraphy and design herself, including creating the custom monogram at the top.  They were printed in a very light, warm grey ink on light pink Arturo cotton paper.  Arturo paper is mould-made to size (rather than produced in a large parent sheet and then cut to size), so each announcements had authentic deckled edges all the way around!

So pretty!!  Thanks so much Katie for working with us to announce and welcome your little girl into the world!!

We created the above postcard earlier this summer for the newlyweds to use as a thank you card after their wedding!  Their wedding photo was digitally printed on linen paper and then was custom duplexed to a 100% cotton backing sheet that we then letterpress printed with a postcard design!  This is a wonderful, classy way to incorporate a digitally printed photo into a letterpress printed piece!

Last, but not least, don’t forget baby announcements!  Twin Ravens Press had the joy of printing the announcements below for one of my best friends, shortly after the birth of her first son!  The letterpress printing was done in two inks and one foil color and then a real, black & white photo of Miles was tipped on to the left of the text!  Adorable.
