Jason Graduation Invitation Unveiled!

I started working on this a few weeks ago and showed you an early preview of what I was working on. Well I finished the job a while ago and I decided to wait on the results until I got my finished design printed and sent to me. Today I got the finished design and it's time for some unveiling, after the break of course...

I'm very pleased with the results of this design. I actually stumbled upon the front design by accident. I was just goofing around with some processes and then it started looking nice so I ran with it. Originally the entire invite was going to be on the front, but I couldn't get the spacing with the words to work with the background design. It just looked too busy. So I moved it all to the back and left just a small message on the front. 

The CIA logo on the back was a pain in the butt though. I couldn't find a decent high-res logo online so I had to make an EXACT replica by hand. Not very efficient, but it was a small price to pay for high quality perfection. And as always, the IheartAnthony logo gets it's own spot. 

I had my mom find a local (in Beacon) printer and she used Watkins Press. It was kind of rough being that I had to communicate via email (and I don't think they are all that used to the speed of email) while my mom would go in to speak with the owner. Eventually everything worked out and I even learned a thing or two about the printing process. According to the mother, the owner was intrigued by my brand. Maybe a partnership is on the horizon...

With that said I have a couple more print designs to work on. I've got business cards (mine and my brother's), and I have something special planned for that. I also have a banner proposal to work on. All in good time though.
