Private Stock partnered with the Lang Lang Foundation to design and manufacture the save the dates, invitations, day of stationery, and a luxury gift box in honor of the Foundation’s 10th Anniversary Gala.
The gift box features our traditional hand-engraved, hand-beveled and foil edge gilded Signature “Thank You” Notecards. The video below speaks about the Lang Lang Foundation’s mission, and follows the fascinating process behind the development of our Signature “Thank You” Notecards.

Private Stock designed and manufactured a luxury gift box to be given to the attendees of the Lang Lang International Music Foundation’s 10th Anniversary Gala Concert Dinner, which took place on October 10th, 2018 at Cipriani 25 Broadway in New York City.
Due to the generosity of these patrons of the arts, The Lang Lang Foundation raised more than 1.6 million dollars, funding the organization’s efforts to educate, inspire, and motivate the next generation of music lovers and performers.

The Save the Dates we made a while back for this event were a HUGE HIT, and the invitations were the next item on the agenda. The most important things we were concerned about with the invitations were:
Matching the tone of the save the dates, but also making them unique
Fitting all of the necessary information about the event
Including all of the appropriate inserts for the event in one package
What we decided to do was make a booklet invitation, which worked out perfectly to solve all of the above issues. The artwork for the cover of the booklet was similar to the front of the save the date, but the fact that it was a folded card definitely differentiated it. Also, because it was a folded card, there were two additional panels to fit content, and we were also able to place the multiple insert cards for the package in the interior of the folded card.
The paper stock we used for these invitations was Sirio Ultra Black 280 gsm, which was scored, and then duplexed to 560 gsm in order to give these cards some extra thickness to really show off the edge gilding. The total thickness of the cards when closed is a whopping 1,120 gsm. The 7″ x 7″ invitations were foil stamped on all four panels with an antique gold foil, and the edges were gilded in antique gold to match.
To make these invitations stand out even more, we paired them with Curious Metallics Gold Leaf envelopes, which were letterpress printed on the face and the flap in black. The recipient addresses were then digitally printed on all 900 envelopes! Once that was done, we applied the stamps and completed the fulfillment for this project by delivering the invitations to the Post Office!
Next up comes the amazing gift box we are putting together to give to all of the attendees of the Gala. Stay tuned for more beautiful stationery items!
These save the dates were foil stamped with antique Gold foil on Colorplan Ebony Black 130# Cover and then duplexed up to a hefty 260# Cover. They were then cut down to size and edge gilded with the same Antique Gold foil we used for the foil stamping. The 6.5″ x 6.5″ Euroflap Envelopes were custom converted from Colorplan Ebony Black 91# Text and foil stamped with the Foundation’s return address in antique gold foil. Check out the slideshow below for some images of the production process, as well as the finished product. Keep an eye out for more posts about the invitations, as well as the custom gift boxes we made for this event!
The colors being used for the event were to be exclusively black and gold, and we wanted these save the dates to be a bold announcement of big things to come. We decided to go with an antique gold foil for the printing, and Colorplan Ebony Black paper stock for both the save the dates and the envelopes.
At the beginning of the Summer of 2018, we began what has since become an amazing partnership with The Lang Lang International Music Foundation. We are honored to be in such amazing company with the sponsors below, all contributing to a good cause. Click the link below to see all of the other sponsors involved in this project.
Their organization began in 2008, and 2018 marks 10 years of progress and achievements, and their semi-annual Gala at Cipriani Wall Street was coming up in October. CEO Leszek Lukas Barwinski-Brown, who has become a friend and ally of ours, came to us with some big ideas for his save the dates, invitations and all of the printed material for the event, but he needed help figuring out how to bring his ideas to life.
