Go Fish!

Bleu de Toi is excited to announce a new fingerprint guestbook--the Rainbow Trout--perfect for family reunions, dad celebrations, kids' birthdays, or any rustic event.

Large Fingerprint Trout for 100-150 fingerprints
(shown with bundled sage, scattered straw and spun sugar)

BDT originally drew the Rainbow Trout as a custom order for a family reunion. The trout's shape and detailing is inspired by antique ichthyology sketches (the study of fishes) and vintage fishing manuals which categorize different types of trout and angler fish:

We love the subtle scales of fingerprint color that bring this trout to life. We used Bundled Sage, Spun Sugar Pink, and Scattered Straw, but it would be fun to experiment with our other ink colors as well. The Rainbow Trout currently comes in a medium or large size to accommodate your guest list. Available in our shop as well as on etsy.

BDT's "In the Mountains" Pinterest page also has some fun ideas for a rustic, lakeside event. Here are a few of our favorites to inspire you:
1) Amazing antique fishing reels to use as decor
2) A canoe ice chest for drinks
3) vintage mountain postcards for unique save-the-dates/invites.

Happy fishing!
