New Work: Golden Apple Holiday Cards

Hexanine: Golden Apple Holiday Card

To wrap up 2012 and give a heartfelt thanks to supporters, Golden Apple Foundation asked us to create a holiday card for their donors and friends. To stay within the project’s modest budget, our team opted to use digital printing provided by our excellent partners at Elk Grove Graphics. But despite the small quantities and budget, our team still wanted to utilize premium production techniques of the piece, making it feel even more special for recipients.

We used three separate hits of white ink on Elk Grove’s HP Indigo 7600 Digital Press, which gave our stylized snowflakes differing levels of opacity depending on the amount of ink used. The varying white inks provided a bit of punch when printed on Neenah Paper’s Classic Crest Patriot Blue paper, with its beautiful stipple finish.  Finally, we matched the snow color with Neenah’s pale blue Windsor Blue envelopes to complete the package. A great and effective way to end the year.
