Baby Announcements

Although wedding invitations represent the bulk of Blue Ribbon's custom printing projects, I occasionally design other types of stationery such as the chinoiserie-inspired baby announcement pictured below.

This announcement was created for a friend, and I love the fact that she wanted to use purple, which was a fun and refreshing change from the standard pink typically used for girls' announcements. I actually used the same pattern (in a different format) on her son's birth announcement (below) two years ago and I like the way that the pattern links the designs for brother and sister.
