For Dinner

la Happy design letterpress and calligraphy menu

The combo of handmade paper + calligraphy + letterpress printing is always a good idea. Menus are such a great way to set the stage and get guests excited for such a special dinner – plus it’s always nice to know what’s in store for dinner!

la Happy Design & Calligraphy illustrated invitation

This invitation I designed and illustrated for a sweet Sinclair & Moore client didn’t quite fit the bill (check out the invitation that made the cut here)… but I loved it so much I had it letterpress printed anyway! The illustration was printed in a vintage gold letterpress ink onto cotton cardstock with a hint of blush color. This is one of my favorite proofs that never made it to official production – I just go weak at the knees for custom illustrations…
