For our Lucky 7th year, our annual open house was Vegas-themed. We screen printed posters (and glittered some!); made postcard invites and vouchers for gambling; screen printed special felt invites; gave away buttons, matches and candy cigarettes; printed posters on felt; built a custom marquee sign and screen printed obnoxious t-shirts.
We also sent out an animated slot machine RSVP invite, and recorded the whole event from multiple viewpoints.
Every three years we re-design the admissions packet for Padua Franciscan High School. This informational packet goes out to middle school kids and their parents to aid them in choosing a high school and has included a video viewbook DVD, admissions brochure/poster and MedTrack brochure.
Awards: Gold ADDY award (district five); Three Gold ADDYs and one Silver ADDY (local)
Collateral pieces for our sixth annual Open House included posters and t-shirts screenprinted in our print lab and a cowhide mailer that we screenprinted and branded with a custom branding iron.
Guests dined on pulled pork and cow pies, drank Kentucky Bourbon poured by an authentic, mustachioed bartender and took home hand-stamped, burlap sacks filled with the coolest goods this side of the Mississippi.
