Be Social. Be Connected. Be Foreword.

Welcome to Foreword Press + Design!
We are a family business bringing people together through beautiful design. 

Foreword Press + Design was opened in October 2010 (formerly Borrowed & Blue Invitations) by children's book author and illustrator Lindsay Ward. Since then she has grown the business to include her husband Frank and mom, Terrie. Foreword Press + Design specializes in custom design, letterpress, and digital printing located in Peninsula, Ohio.

O U R  M I S S I O N

Be social. Be connected. Be Foreword. In an age of isolation and technological reliance we create our designs to get people exited about being around each other again. Whether for a wedding or a dinner party, a birthday, or an anniversary, we want to be your invitation to meet with the ones you love.
