Duke Forward Campaign Impact Dinners

The Duke University Forward Campaign has been a huge success, raising over three and a half billion dollars to support meaningful programs at the University.  Make an impact with your fundraising — but let us handle the print details, ranging from invitations to place cards!

Duke Forward Campaign Impact Dinners

If you need 1,000 place cards, table numbers, organizational signs, and more for your corporate event, look no further.  We are thrilled to share a snapshot of our work with Duke University for their Duke Forward campaign.  The place card design included the staggered-line logo for the Duke Forward initiative, while the table numbers focused providing clear directions for so many people to find a seat, with a large simple design and backing of Duke blue.

This dinner was the culmination of a yearlong invitation and marketing project to assist the university’s development team in meeting their goal to move Duke Forward. Over the year, we designed and printed thousands of batches of custom laser-cut invitations and many other details for the special events that were brought to cities all over the United States to promote the campaign.

It’s been a great year, and we congratulate Duke on this amazing accomplishment. We are so happy to have played a small role in this effort. 

Thanks to these other vendors who helped create the event and shared these images with us:

A Blush and Navy Monogrammed Wedding Invitation

We were lucky to meet this sweet couple at Engagement for the Engaged, an event where engaged couples can meet with many wedding vendors under one roof.  Their sense of humor was charming and infectious, and that playfulness carried through their design, including a custom monogrammed wedding invitation.

Blush and Navy Monogrammed Wedding Invitation Details

Lawren and Jean’s design features a custom envelope liner map as a nod to their family being from all over.  A monogram of their initials takes center stage on the main invitation. Their colors of navy and blush are balanced between formal and traditional, with softness and subtle color.  A classic script font and border flourishes add a lighthearted elegant touch, while metallic accents bring the “wow” factor.

Congratulations Lawren & Jean!

A Navy and Blush Duke Chapel Wedding

A popular wedding venue here in Durham is Duke Chapel, and if you’ve ever seen it you know why. It’s English style neo-Gothic architecture makes for a picture-perfect scene. We always love seeing the photos for a Duke Chapel Wedding, as they always feel so timeless.

Navy and Blush Duke Chapel Wedding Details

For Mary Pat and Jonathan’s design, we created an original postcard inspired Save the Date, using vintage images from historic postcards. We also created an invitation suite in navy and blush, which have been extremely popular colors over the past year. The navy is formal and traditional, and the blush/champagne tones are neutral but add softness and subtle color. A beautiful digital calligraphy font, hand-drawn flourishes, and a custom map were other focal points of the design.

Congratulations Mary Pat & Johnathan!
