here’s another holiday sneak peek – what do you think about an offset collection for quick ordering and customization? We certainly will continue on with the letterpress, but many have requested an offset option for holiday greetings because they need a quick turnaround.

This design is for those wishing to announce a new arrival for the holidays – more, many more genres to come. Gosh I miss my babies (although they have turned out to be pretty cute kids too)!

sUPER excited about these little letterpress notes! They debuted at NSS last year, however we had a ton of city requests so the collection is rounded out at 27 cities (for now) all that were shown at the stationery show 2012. Here are a few of my favorites, all of which you can get in sets of 6 on Etsy immediately! Letterpress printed on Arturo gravel paper, sized as a 4Bar folded note with a blank interior. Sold as a set of 6 notes (and soon as singles, journals and coasters), this collection is printed in black ink, sketched and designed here in Idaho and then finished with colorfast watercolor paint. Each card will be slightly different due to the hand painted nature of the product.

many of the cards launched this year were US destinations, however more international landmarks were part of the 2011 launch and we have an ongoing list. If you’d like to see something that isn’t in the shop put it in the comments and we’ll get cracking on it! Can’t wait to hear what landmarks you want us to do next…

I’ll be listing an abundance of colors in our new pocket pouches over the next few days. Check out the first six hues and grab yourself a set of 10 for business cards, gift card enclosures, holiday wrapping or whatever suits your fancy! Custom die-cut with our own pattern on 80 lb text weight paper. Scored, glued and assembled ready for some gift card or business card awesomeness! Sized 2.675×2.675″ – Fits perfectly a 2.5×2.5″ business card.

Having just had mother’s day (and thinking about all that my mom has done for me over the years) I really wanted the “Queen” card to convey something that all mom’s can relate to. Queens used to be ruthless, they would do anything to get their children on the throne – I think mother’s took it as their responsibility to raise their children up to nobility status (and many clawed their way to that position). After becoming a mother I have learned that we are still advocates for our children in so many ways. When David attended kindergarten I had to learn fast that no one would be responsible for him in school unless I demanded it. From day one, my husband and I have had to advocate for equal rights for him even with his diabetes. We’ve had to be tolerant, …

This card was fun to research and find an appropriate saying to pair with it. In the end I decided that religious or not, we can all agree that its not easy being a saint – especially when there is work to get done, or beds to be made, or children that need feeding. But having the right attitude can sure make a difference in the outcome of any chore or task. Saint or not, what are your dreaded tasks that could use a morning prayer or glass of wine at the end of the day? This card makes me chuckle. When designing it, I intended to portray the image that good kings are best served when they serve their people. But when it came off press I kept wanting to read it instead of true kings serve their people well but …

Thank you to everyone for letting me pretty much take the month off of blogging. I think from Feb-May I’ve not slept and my poor kids were more excited for the babysitter than me at times. But WOW, National Stationery Show 2011 was amazing. I don’t miss New York and its torrential downpour, but the show was incredible. I feel like there are a lot of mixed emotions when you throw your money endlessly at the tradeshow, new collections, union labor, lighting, booth, food and HOTEL (wow was that an expensive week) and then hope that buyers place orders, press coverage ensues and that you’ll make even a fraction of it back in the end. However, after it was all said and done, I feel like we landed some amazing accounts for wholesale and are continuing to write orders from contacts made …

So I was updating my contacts in LinkedIn and found an old friend from college – we had under-division classes together before she transferred. After clicking through to her blog I found this loverly teacup that she made! By clicking the image you’ll be taken to her Etsy shop – enjoy!
