Here’s a spectacular physical invitation for a virtual fundraiser! From Susan Boettner of Stensland Design in Marina, California, this beautiful and budget-friendly event invitation was designed to promote a VIRTUAL fundraiser and online auction for client Ganna Walska Lotusland botanical gardens. The simple, accordion folded invitation is wrapped with a rolling “palm frond” that serves as a belly band and, when unraveled, is also the response card! Printed by JANO Printing & Mailworks and sent in a beautiful translucent envelope, this invitation is a refreshing, tangible solution that truly stands out in these days of digital overload.
