LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT US:
Every year The Joffrey Ballet Womens Board hosts an exciting Spring Gala which raises $1.3 million to support The Joffrey Ballets mission. This annual event is the Chicago black-tie party of the year with more than 900 guests. The theme for the evening is The Joffrey Express to be held at a new destination for our patrons, in the Chicago icon, Union Station. Joffrey guests will join the Womens Board for a first class journey to discover the Joffrey. The first stop is the Auditorium Theatre where the guests will see the dance company present its Spring Feature Performances, then our guests will be whisked away in historic trolleys to Union Station to the gala to enjoy a five course gourmet dinner, lovely wines, Jazz, and of course, dancing with the Joffrey!
The Joffrey Ballet is a world-class ballet company that promises to provide a one of a kind of experience. Our repertoire is as vibrant as it is eclectic. Our dancers and choreographers are constantly pushing themselves to express the great diversity, athleticism, and physical prowessits like you ballet as youve never seen it before.
HERE IS WHAT WE NEED:
We need a BEAUTIFUL invitation with an outer envelope, and a response card with an inner envelope. We'd like the designer to place dummy text for lists that they don't have but to see text will look like within the layout.
We want the designer to keep print costs in mind; no dye cuts, special finishing, or high end printing please--beautiful; but cost conscious is best. We will send out 2,500 invites
FINISHED SIZE: A10
The invitation needs to include quite a bit of information and could use multiple panels but cost is important. Standard finished sizing is CRITICAL.

The finishing piece is very important--we don't want to limit your creativity, but keep in mind that the postage weight of this piece should be considered. We will print the piece on a nice cover weight, but not too heavy as there are multiple pieces in the package. Also, vellum envelopes are discouraged unless you have know of a solution that mails well. Digital printing may be an option depending on the paper size, however 2,500 is on the high side for cost savings with digital printing however the effects can be really cool. NO SQUARE FINISHED INVITES PLEASE.
OUR TARGET AUDIENCE IS:
Our target audience for this event is Ballet Aficionados who love the Joffrey as well as those who appreciate the Ballet and are attending as a guest. The Joffrey is known for hosting glamorous events which are fashionable, modern, and super hip. People want to attend our parties and this invitation should speak to that.
The event tickets start at $600 per person. Tables start at $6,000 and can be as much as $75,000.
WE LIKE THESE DESIGNS:
Joffrey Blue is PMS: The color 297C. We often use the blue in pieces as it brands us. The theme that were going with is a sort of Joffrey Express. The invitation could be a fold out map, or a passport, or something with a travel/train theme.
WE ABSOLUTELY MUST HAVE THIS IN OUR DESIGN:
