~ Laural Carr, Owner and Creative Director, Impagination
Impagination celebrated 25 years of business with a special holiday promotion featuring a retrospective of images and anecdotes from previous award-winning holiday designs.
The full-colour greeting was digitally printed by C.J. Digital on silver Stardream Crystal paper (from Cordenons) packaged into a 6"x 6" format that exploded open to 12" x 12" thanks to Specialties Graphic Finishers' unique bindery. This created ample real estate for 18 photos (thanks to Matthew Plexman Photographers), humorous anecdotes and numerous acknowledgements.
A specially designed gift package was presented to 25 individuals whose contributions had the greatest impact on Impagination over the past 25 years. A silver tin containing chocolates embossed with Impagination's logo and a set of iconic holiday note cards and envelopes completed the package.
Long-standing fans and clients of Impagination shared comments as they revisited some of their holiday favorites.
"I was between permanent addresses. And I was learning that Christmas decorations are not dispensable. I pulled out my archive of Christmas cards from Impagination and arranged them on display. They still lift my spirits, and not only at Christmas. ~Jean Davies
My favourite has to be the Bright Lights Christmas card - the most amazing I've ever seen - anywhere! ~ Jane Baker
My all time favorite Christmas card is the one with Alex's sweet, beaming, almost toothless smile at the centre of a Star ornament! ~ Randi Helmers
Her cards are treasures. I still have my favourites and bring them out every Christmas to hang around the house. ~ Joan Francuz
