Letterpress Birth Announcements

Hello friends! Above are photos of some letterpress birth announcements we printed last fall for one of our best friends' son. Although he was born in August, I didn't actually get them finished until sometime late September because I was about 30 weeks pregnant at the time. Let me tell you, printing on a C&P with a big pregnant belly and an extra 35 pounds on your frame can be difficult to say the least!

I chose brown and green as the inks to carry on the safari/animal type of theme. I also used our 100% recycled kraft envelopes to go with the set, as they have a nice rustic, boyish feel to them (if that makes any sense!). Anyways, I think my friend was quite pleased with them :)

I have yet to print the birth announcements for my own daughter, which is kind of sad seeing as she is 12 weeks old now. It's amazing how things fall through the cracks when you have a baby - not because you've forgotten - but because there are simply not enough hours in the day to accomplish everything you had planned. I've learned that you can still achieve all that you want to with a baby, but that in order to do so, some things have to slide. There are always tradeoffs. So what if I can't walk across my bedroom without tripping over massive piles of laundry?

I hope you enjoy the photos. If you are interested in letterpress birth announcements, please contact the studio.

p.s. Mr. Ian and Auntie M please email me for your Indie I Do passes - you must register them before the show or else you won't be able to get in.
