Gucci Love

I have been eyeing these Gucci quartz earrings for half a year now. They are just so exquisite but I absolutely have no special occasion fabulous enough to wear them to. Below is also the matching necklace. You can actually just rent them for a week or a month at Bag Borrow Or Steal for a fraction of what it would cost to buy so I think that it would be perfect for the wedding day.

Inside the Studio

While taking some pictures of our letterpress invitations, our fabulous photographer also shot some of our letterpress baby, our clunking Heidelberg Windmill. This 5000 pound press is what makes all those crisp, beautiful impressions of our letterpress line. At this particular moment, we were doing a gold run and you can see the ink on the rollers in the pictures.

I have to admit that like the world, I have fallen in love with the beauty of letterpress. I can't help but admire each piece as it comes off the press. Even though our prices are really competitive, it can still be a little hard on the wallet for this luxurious style of printing. For those who love letterpress like me and want a little break, check out our 50% section. Same, beautiful impressions, way lower price tag.

Real Wedding: Sue and David Invitation

As promised, here is the invitation from Sue and David's wedding! They had liked a custom monogram that we had letterpressed for previous client and opted for the same thing. The invitation was pressed in a crimson ink on our soft white paper, evoking old Hollywood.

Oh Baby!

I had the pleasure of designing a baby announcement for one of our staff members several months back, I wanted to do something feminine for her baby girl but at the same time, I wanted to get away from the usual soft pink. The result is a simple custom floral and butterfly drawing (we have also adopted this as part of our new logo!) letterpressed in a deep strawberry ink. In trying to be a little different, I chose a khaki ink. I really love this color combination! Candace (our staff member) then made wallet reprints of her beautiful girl and mounted them onto the card (because you can't letterpress pictures). The announcement was mailed in a matching khaki envelope (how's that for being different!)

Baby items will be available for purchase directly on the site something in April.
