Many years ago, when the paper companies were consolidating, we were asked to create an interesting and unique invitation that would get the attention of the design and production crowd. The event highlighted the changes made in the paper lines and discussed what papers were being discontinued.

From there, we came up with a great idea of what it would be like to be a discontinued paper sample book tossed out on the street. Life is tough…(Ousted). What better way to highlight the disparity than with photos of the books in the gutter or in a back alley somewhere. To bring it all together, we packaged it in a handmade burlap bag and then we bound the invites with hand stamped wooden covers.
