These were in our pile of mail a few weeks ago and it was a pleasure to open them and touch the paper, finding the details like the tone-on-tone varnish on the envelope, and thinking of what use we could give them.

Project Description

Our brief was to create a personable holiday gift for our clients, production, and art partners which reflected our agency’s creative culture. We collaboratively created an image bank of our own photos, inspired by our own personal adventures, curiosity, and travel. We then curated our favorite moments to create the postcard series and reached out to Brown Printing to help us in designing the envelope, packaging, and postcards.

Production Lesson(s)

Overall we had a great experience, as soon as we began meeting directly with the printer and leaning on their experience and knowledge of printing stocks and process the project ran smoothly. The envelopes took the longest time to produce, and with holidays we were up against a deadline for mailing, next time we would complete the envelope and die-line earlier in the process.”
