A Redesign for the Oscars Envelope
To honor the 70th anniversary of the Academy Awards, designer Marc Friedland brings out the bling with iridescent gold paper for his “iconic” makeover of the ordinary white envelope and plain announcement cards.

"…The  outside of the envelope and flap is an Art Deco-inspired satin gold  foil frame with  an ecru inset panel bearing the name of the award  category in a rich charcoal  ink. The envelope will contain a   heavyweight ecru card featuring gold foil accents and a gold   leaf-embossed Oscar statuette along with the phrase, “And the Oscar goes   to…."  The winner’s name will  be printed in charcoal ink and mounted  onto a matching, red lacquer  hand-wrapped frame…” —press release from The Academy
 
We look forward to seeing these designs on the screen on ABC this upcoming Sunday, February 27, 2011 and appreciate the extra attention to detail this year.
