Couture Letterpress Feather Frame Birth Announcements

  • Posted on July 09, 2017

We love working with couture clients, and it's always exciting for me when a client comes along who is open to uncommon color palettes and design elements. My client Michelle wanted something different and unexpected for her baby boy Niall's letterpress baby announcement. A traditionalist at heart, she knew she wanted to include a photo, but still reflect the hip style of the nursery which featured a black crib and a large photo of pigeons in flight.

Niall's custom birth announcement design features a feathery frame in charcoal gray and sea glass green, the perfect backdrop to nestle a small square photo of this sweet baby boy. I designed a coordinating return address for the envelope flap with a feather motif, just a hint of what would be inside.

The WPA Poster stamps were a natural choice for postage and coordinated perfectly, with their vintage color palette and boyish motifs.

My client chose to add a little message on the back of the cards–Niall rhymes with smile–to ensure correct pronunciation of his name. Congratulations to Michelle and family!
