In 1962, John F. Kennedy challenged the United States to become the first nation to land a man on the moon. Seven years later, America completed that challenge with the successful Apollo 11 mission. This invitation package to a viewing party of the Saturn V rocket launch commemorates this historic event.


The invitation focuses on the experience. When one opens the envelope, they pull up the Saturn V rocket, as it would ascend into space.


Continuing the experience, the invitation is perforated to tear apart at the same two locations that the spacecraft originally detached.


Along with the invitation, a set of collectable cards was designed to be given away at the event.
