The Project Scope:

Design of a stylish birthday invitation with matching hand lettered envelope.

8chDesign designed birthday invitations for a private client which were sent out to the guests in hand lettered envelopes. These invitations were letterpress printed. As the client requested Adidas Original Blue as a font shade we decided on Pantone 2935. We further chose the FSC certified paper Rives Tradition in the colour “bright white” (grammage of 320g/m²). To achieve a harmonic interplay with the actual invitation we picked envelopes made from the eco-paper Desert Storm (grammage of 118g/m²). Our calligrapher marked all envelopes by hand to add as much of a personal touch to the entire invitation as possible.
