Project Description

PRPL was hosting a speakeasy after-party, and needed invitations that would balance secrecy with a stand-out design. We aimed for an authentic, quality feel, complemented by individual skeleton keys and hand-labeled envelopes. The invitations really set the tone for the event!

Production Lesson(s)

Knowing a bunch of different shops in your area is always to your benefit. Bigger and busier shops typically book their letterpress out months in advance, but our friends at Hobo Press are small and agile enough to pull off this type project on such a tight timeline, practically a moment's notice.”
