The Challenge
Create a high end elegant invitation for the opening of their retail store on Melrose Place in LA and be assured this would not end up in the trash with the junk mail.

The Solution:
Triple mount a 3 layers of stock to produce a thick invitation.  That wasn’t enough to guarantee opening. We then converted the matching cover stock into an envelope with a die cut button and string.  Who would toss this?

Behind the Design
Brad Bowder – Tracy Paul

BEHIND THE SPECS:

Invitation: Engrave warm grey #10, matte silver foil stamp and triple mount the 3 pieces together.
