A throwback letterpress template created for birth announcements. A little tough to create, as it is very type-heavy and I could only use free fonts, but I think it is turning out well.

I'd agree with you - it is turning out well!
Looks awesome, Dave! I love, the Art Deco inspired typeface. Bold and beautiful. Colour and texture are perfect too.
This looks beautiful, especially like the 3 lines at the edge of the ribbon. Nice touch!
Dave, your work is so nice its just boring now.
Yawn. Do something shit.
@Ben so sorry to disappoint you ;)
Lovely! It's just subjective, but the only font that's not looking like the same "era" is the boy's name. The roundedness makes it look more ahead of time from the other Art Deco-influenced typeface. Maybe Ostrich Sans? (free)
Again, just my opinion ;-)
Inka, Good call.
I tried Ostrich Sans, and one weight was too thick, and the other was too thin. I found Miso to look the closest with the right weight. It's hard sometimes using only free fonts.
Yeah, I know what you mean. It's such a big jump from Medium to Bold weight with that font. One trick I'd like to use sometimes when that happens is to add outline on the thinner font to achieve the happy weight I'm looking for. Then outline the font and adjust accordingly.
Tried outlining the font as well. Didn't look right.
It's a minor thing. I'm sure the client would love this as is ;-)
very nice indeed!
Does this have to be used for a birth announcement? I could foresee a situation where I might use this as-is for my own site. I'd give consideration to legally changing my name to Aiden Michael if that was a requirement.
@Christian: I awaited your comment with bated breath. You never disappoint me.
@Dave, Looks sweet. So when does this SquareSpace, Cargo, Weebly type template service launch?
@Adam: When I run out of ideas for new themes. Or when you finally press "like". Which ever comes first.
Aidan. great name. great name.
Agreed, Aidan. Great name ;)
Awesome work, Dave!
this is gorgeous!
Dave, can I see a bigger version of this por favor?
