Star Chart Planisphere Birth Announcement

This suite was crafted from scratch to meet the needs (and dreams!) of our clients. Please get in touch if you are interested in having us create a one-of-a-kind suite just for you!

When we were asked to create a birth announcement for Nole Garey, the founder and editor of Oh So Beautiful Paper, we were honored, thrilled – and totally excited to make something new and unique! She and her husband were interested in having a celestial-themed announcement after seeing some of our other work, so we came up with the idea of creating an actual working planisphere, a device that when rotated to match a certain date and time, would reveal the constellations that you’d see in the night sky. On the back of the star chart, baby renditions of astrological signs encircled a glassine envelope that would later house a square photograph of baby Sophie. As one of our most favorite pieces, we are honored that this announcement won a 2013 Louie Award for Printing and Production Excellence!
