Surprise Decoder Announcement

The piece was printed in two colors on Neenah Neutech 160# Pure White, die-cut and hand assembled, and earned us a Copper Ingot in the AIGA 100 Show.

    This is amazing. What a great and fun idea. How much would something like this cost to produce?

    Wow, great job guys. Very orginal. Did you have to work with another company to get the glasses?

    • December 21, 2010 Reply


      Thanks David! As a matter of fact, we created the glasses ourselves. Printed, die-cut and then hand assembled here in the shop.

    What a clever way to announce a pregnancy! That is the most unique message delivery I’ve seen yet. : ) I just linked to your site for the first time through a site I visit often: Your entire site is beautiful ~ I’m so LUX found you and mentioned you on their blog. Have a wonderful day!

    this is great! is the text ‘behind’ the red ink a blind impression, or did you print it with an opaque white? Amazing job!!!

      The underlying message is actually printed in a light shade of blue.

    This is ingenious. Where did the glasses go? Were they attached to the back of the card?

    Can the message on this card be customized. Say, an invitation to a party? Thank you!

      Nothing special – just oil based printing ink.

    Hi I am really interested in having the decoder made into a Barmitzvah invitation for my son.
    I am based in the UK – would this be a problem?

    • April 24, 2015 Reply


      Hi Debra! That’s no problem at all. Just drop us a note and we’ll discuss, we have some great options for this piece.
