Project Description

My father, who is truly one of the best people ever, turned 70 this year. Mom asked me to do the invitations for a celebratory BBQ she's hosting in his honor. Because I can't help myself, I went slightly overboard. It's not every day you get a letterpressed, foil-stamped invitation to a BBQ. My parents loved the results. On to the party!

Production Lesson(s)

A few printers told me that the tight registration would make this job impossible, but they came out beautifully in the end. I am a huge fan of mixing foil with letterpress after this experience.”
