Letterpress Baby Shower Invitations

Ok guys… I’m so excited to share this latest project with you! I finally got to do my first big letterpress job (since Olivia was born) in my new print room!  I was honored with the privilege of throwing a baby shower for a wonderful friend of mine, Niki, and it was the perfect project to get back into the swing of things as fas as printing goes.

Niki was one of the first people I met at Virginia Tech.  We became great friends and roommates. I’m so thrilled that she and her husband are welcoming a sweet baby boy in February! She told me that she was planning the nursery colors to be grey, mustard yellow, and blue.  I love using colors for party planning inspiration and so I ran with the grey/mustard idea for the invitations.

I’ve had the idea to use a tiny little envelope for an invitation for awhile now and I thought a baby shower would be the perfect opportunity.

The invitation itself is 5×7 and the mini yellow envelope is 3×3.

isn’t it so cute?  I’m kind of a sucker for anything miniature…

I designed and pressed the outer generic invitation

and then used the computer printer to print the information that I designed inside the mini envelope specific to Niki’s shower

This project was so fun for me!  The shower was over the weekend and we had a great time gathering to celebrate Niki’s little bundle of joy!
