Number eight in my Top Ten projects for 2010 came from
Signed and Sealed by Steph in Denver, CO. Her bride required eco-friendly papers with at least 30% post-consumer waste content, which was no problem for us to accommodate since most of the papers we carry fall into this category. The folder is made of 100% reclaimed cotton paper (scraps from the garment district, so not post-consumer, but definitely the best use of scrap fabric I've ever seen!), and the invitation is Neenah Paper's Environment Natural White 100% recycled PCW cover stock, letterpress printed in soy based Cocoa ink.

What I really like about this invitation, other than being able to talk about the green-factor of our invitations, is how this beauty looks. The overall design comes from
Real Card Studio's Cosmopolitan invitation (no secret that it's my favorite of our designs), but we enlarged it to an eight inch square pocket folder, and instead of the all-caps sans serif modern typesetting we usually do, we got flourishy with Burgues Script.

And the touch that always makes me the happiest about our
Cosmopolitan invitation is the pop of color we put in the pocket with the colored reply envelope, usually to match the satin ribbon on the front cover. So happy.
Color palette: Kiwi Green + Cocoa Brown
Real Card Studio partnered with Signed and Sealed by Steph to create this invitation.
