Font Friday 4.7 / Oscars 2014

The Envelope Please | Oscars 2014
This week, I had the privilege of attending  The 2014 Oscars Winner Envelope preview party hosted by Marc Friedland Couture Communications. In the last few years, the creation of the award envelope has become a work of art, and quite a big deal. Updated in 2011, Marc Friedland has revolutionized the look and feel of the Oscar awards. (Check out this USA Today article here for a more information about the new envelopes/awards.) Attending the event with my good friend Troy of Simply Troy, we got to see a first hand look at the creation of the most famous envelope in preparation for this Sunday’s Oscars!

Three envelopes are made for each nominee in every category. After the winner is announced, all other envelopes are destroyed, other than the one given to the winner. Pretty special!

Mock-up of what the winning card and envelope look like. The envelope weighs about 1/4 pound and is about 1/8″ thick. It makes quite an impact.

Delicious desserts, bits and drinks filled the room. (The party was sponsored by Ciroc and Beverly Hills 90H20).
