The theme for the Alzheimer’s Association Rita Hayworth Gala changes from year to year and is traditionally selected from one of the star’s movies. Through the years we have utilized a variety of special effects, such as embossed foil stamping, glitter UV, and die-cutting, to enhance the design.
For the 30th Anniversary Rita Hayworth Gala, we split the invitation into two components. One piece was a single heavyweight card that included silver foil stamping of a silhouette of Rita Hayworth on one side and the invitation panel on the other. The text describing the event theme, the honorees’s bios and committee listings were included in a separate booklet.
The invitation “slab” printed two colors on 130# Classic Columns Avalanche White cover, then mounted together by hand with multiple sheets of paper to give it its thickness. The booklet was printed on 80# cover. The heavyweight card and booklet were both 8” x 8” square and fit into an 8-1/2” square envelope along with the response cards and reply envelope.
