This is a really cool letterpress project designed and illustrated by Ty Mattson of Mattson Creative to mark the announcement of the birth of his son. The letterpress printing was done by Studio on Fire onto 220lb. Lettra paper. I really love the type, simple colours and attention to detail.

  1. I think it’s really sweet how people still do birth announcements. This is fantastic – it’s clear he is a designer’s son! I don’t think many others would bother with such an expensive design. You’d be lucky if you got a ‘fill in the blanks’ card from my parents!
