This invitation for fine jewelry store Cottrills summons guests to enjoy breakfast over Patek Phillipe watches, using production techniques as rich as the event they are promoting. Appealing to a conservative audience with brown paper, natural tones and restrained type, this looks exactly like the kind of party I’d love to crash.

A set of highly prestigious invitations designed for 3 events to be held in one day at Cottrills prestigious retail store in Cheshire. The invitations feature a heavy blind (inkless) letterpress impression on the outer with gold print and clear foil blocked inners.
