Custom Invitations for ALL NIPPON AIRWAYS New Route from San Jose to Tokyo

ANA “All NIPPON AIRWAYS” has a new route from San Jose to Tokyo and they would like to announce the occasion with Custom Invitations from Hyegraph Invitations & Calligraphy. We worked with local, San Francisco event planner Lauren McDonald from California Host to create the custom invitations for ANA–All NIPPON AIRWAYS. We created custom, three layered invitations using checkerboard designs. The ANA colors of navy & ocean blue found in their company logo was used to create the color theme for the invitations. Yuji Hirako, Senior Vice President of the Americas All Nippon Airways CO., Chuck Reed, the Major of San Jose, and Carl Guardino, President & CEO of the Silicon Valley Leadership Group invited guests to a Reception with Drinks & Hors D’oeuvres to Celebrate the Launch of the All Nippon Airways New Route from San Jose to Tokyo. The reception was scheduled to take place at THE ROTUNDA at SAN JOSE CITY HALL in San Jose, California on December 5th 2012.

According to a Press Release by ANA, released in November, 2012, ANA is Japan’s leading airline and the New Route will launch on January 11, 2013 from San Jose to Narita, Tokyo. The press release states,

The City of San Jose is the center of Silicon Valley and home to many of the world-renown technology corporations, including Japanese companies. Located in close proximity to downtown San Jose, the new service out of Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International Airport will enable ANA to serve global travelers between Silicon Valley and Japan and other Asian destinations.
