Exploding with joy over letterpress baby announcement

Creative collaboration makes me say “I Love My Clients”!

3-2-1 …It’s a girl! Vintage firework-themed letterpress baby announcement

A client recently called again because she was expecting her second baby. Exiting news!

She wanted Spiffy Press to design another letterpress baby announcement. Music to my ears since this was her third project with us — two baby announcements and a birthday party invitation.

I love working with this client. She is a creative writer, quirky person (and I mean that as a giant compliment) and someone who appreciates high-quality letterpress over quick-print photo cards.

Snap! Crackle! Pop! Goes the Letterpress

All creative projects start with a concept or core idea. Since my client was due to deliver baby #2 in July, she thinking about something summery and celebratory, which was inspired by vintage fireworks packaging.

We ended up with this faded pink (it’s a girl!) and orange palette. Printed on Crane’s Lettra double thick 100% cotton paper, using green grocer, 100% recycled paper bag envelopes.

Collaborating on the details

My favorite part of the announcement is the “Warning” label. I found this in my research and my client adapted the copy to “warn” others about the new baby. Subtle and cute.
