Tosh and Victoria Brown are a design duo to be reckoned with. So it only makes sense that when the time came to announce the arrival of their firstborn they’d do it up right. The custom illustration is a perfect graphical representation of them both and really captures their style.

We letterpress printed this using 4 spot colors on 100% cotton Cranes Lettra paper.

You can view more images of Stella’s announcement on our flickr page.
