Auction Napa Valley Invitation


A vibrant green and orange cover stock (Esse Verde and Esse Arancio) set the exciting and uplifting palette and hint at all the marvels and miracles inside this invitation package designed for Napa Valley Vintners’ annual charity event.

The embossed cover, french-fold pages and square diecut corners give the invitation a refined finish. Elements such as bronze rivets, silver metallic ink; gold foil stamping; a red seal with Napa’s mascot, Hank; and classical typography communicate an elegant event with a modern twist.

Original artwork, painted by Steve Osborn, communicates the overall spirit of the iconic Napa Valley wine country and graces the front of a gift postcard. Crisp, lively photos (scenes of grape vines, auction paddles and raised wine glasses) bleed across pages throughout the invitation folio, capturing visual attention and conveying the philanthropic message.

Auction Napa Valley Invitation was featured as a Paper Inspiration.
