Valentine’s 90th Celebration
When you reach ninety years it’s a huge milestone that’s certainly worth celebrating. So how do you mark the occasion when you’re a forty-two-foot 1920s Elco motor yacht? When Ink&Pixel is called to the task, you go full tilt and make a big splash.
That’s just what owners of Valentine wanted for their rare 1929 mahogany beauty. During the past 36 years of owning her, they have obviously had an affinity for the ship but they have also enjoyed learning about her rich history and the ups and downs that she has seen over the past nine decades.
So they decided to take this opportunity to pay tribute to the special vessel and work with Ink&Pixel to create an event and produce meaningful gifts to share with friends, family, business colleagues, and fellow pleasure cruisers that have all been a part of Valentine’s legacy through the years.
Ink&Pixel assisted with preparations for the special day and created a suite of special commemorative materials to mark Valentine’s big moment and really let her shine as the star. We wanted to produce every piece of print, merchandise, and packaging with a keen eye for the same attention to detail that has made Valentine so timeless to the antique yachting community and precious to her owners. Our driving principle was to elevate every opportunity to this gold standard and create pieces that are worthy of being treasured by each guest — all as a tribute to Valentine’s enduring spirit.
