An Invitation to Party Like Animals

Who wouldn’t love to receive this fun, customized birthday invitation featuring unique illustration, intricate die-cut edges, an accordion fold, and a bright pink envelope liner? With campy crosshatch artwork of black and white wild animals imbibing, we can only imagine this was one heck of a party!


Cleverly designed in black, white, and light pink, the invitation features a heart shaped diecut as a replacement for the letter O within Nora, the birthday gal’s, name.

A pink heart on the insert breaks up the copy nicely and nests into the center of the die-cut fold out for added drama.


The invitation and matching envelopes (featuring a beautiful matching pink liner!) were printed on timeless Mohawk Superfine Eggshell Ultrawhite 120 cover, resulting in outstanding print coverage and a luxurious feel. (How appropriate that Superfine was selected, considering this iconic grade is celebrating its 70th anniversary in the same year that Nora is celebrating her own milestone birthday!)


The invitation was designed by Lynn Hatzius and printed on a six-color Heidelberg Speedmaster press by Direct Printing Impressions, a commercial printer based in West Caldwell, New Jersey.
