Speaking of Ollie turning one, shall I post his birth announcement? Yep, I'm really that on top of blogging. I almost didn't post about it at all, but I really love how it turned out so I think it's still worth sharing.
Our dear friends, Kirk and Eva of Sycamore Street Press, offered to letterpress whatever I could come up with for Ollie's announcement, and I couldn't resist an opportunity like that. I decided to experiment with a large block of color, which is not really suited to letterpress printing which indents the paper, but I've been curious to try it and I never get the chance when I'm designing things for clients or the Pop line because I can't afford a disaster. I figured that I would give it a try, and the worst scenario would be that I'd be out the price of the plate and have to start over.
I cut the envelope liners from Paper Source wrapping paper because they didn't offer that pattern in the size that I needed. I love the pop of color it added.
