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)!

If you haven’t seen it this year, we have re-designed the Love, Santa letterpress tags for all of Santa’s helpers out there. There is about 10-12 more shopping days for domestic orders if you want your letterpress goods by Christmas Eve. International orders better get hopping on your last minute US buying ASAP, we can’t guarantee anything shipped out beyond the 10th. Letterpress printed on 110# papper and paired with die-cut gift pouches in either antique gold or light shimmer champagne. Sized at 2.25 x 3.5″ and will fit a perfect amount of cash, gift card or special note from Santa to adorn your gifts this season.

It has been such a GREAT week with the shop launch and #letterpressTuesday promotion that I just can’t wrap up the week without another special something for you awesome friends. While we will continue to have the bread and butter of Dingbat Press be mostly letterpress goods, we are dipping into the offset arena for our budget conscious customers (or those on a super tight deadline) and because you have requested it. Throughout 2012 we’ll be unrolling offset baby announcements, more holiday greeting cards and hopefully (fingers crossed) a finished – NEW – collection of offset wedding invitations. These designs will utilize the advantages of offset and 4-color process and hopefully be a place where visions that aren’t suitable for letterpress can be fulfilled with a flat printed option. SO, on with the giveaway! Win a set of 100 offset holiday cards …

These are new in the shop, and are great for cash or gift card gifts. Sold as singles as well as an assorted set of 6 (one of each pattern) for those hard to buy for friends or family members. They are fun to get cheeky with too! By the way, did you know that photoshop CS5 won’t let you open an image with more than 50% of a United States dollar on it for counterfeit reasons? It recognized my hammered out $20 bucks!

As you may know we live at a high elevation, which calls for not much of a spring or fall to my utter dismay. The only thing I have to look forward in conjunction with the impending snowfall is the warm cocoa (or steamed milk with a shot of hazelnut) and homemade marshmallows. I’m excited to introduce some new offerings as well to go along with your beverage of choice while the weather gets cooler – COASTERS! There are five different patterns based off our holiday cards from last year: Peace, Love, O Come let us adore him (above), Sleep in heavenly peace, and a new Hanukkah letterpress coaster. All coasters are letterpress printed on 110# cotton paper with 2 waterfast inks per coaster. Packed as a set of 10 in a beautiful 4″ tin with a clear windowed lid. To see …

It’s that time again to check in with my resolutions for 2011 and check-list. First off, I still haven’t bought anything for myself yea! Although iPhone 4 (yeah the one with the cracked screen 3 weeks after buying) has met an even more depressing demise- it dropped again, this time bumper cover and all, about 18″ and the rest of the screen shattered. I can’t really read anything anymore, but the touch functionality mostly works. It’s been taped up with packing tape. June couldn’t come fast enough for iPhone 5. Sheesh! Wedding invites were out the door for my brother-in-law – 650 of them, another sheesh! That made for an insane weekend! Things accomplished for NSS – The Book was previewed. There was a price cut on the Lettra 600 GSM – but not enough to temp us. So we’ve officially switched …

I’m a total sucker for some wailing banjo music, and even more so when they lyrics are A M A Z I N G! As I’m sure you’ve noticed a theme going on with the letterpress Valentine’s Collection 2011 – here is yet another set of cards inspired by my love for music. Calligraphy was done by the fabulous Grace Edmands Calligraphy and then incorporated into design for 2 really pretty Valentine’s Day Cards. Grace, thanks for collaborating on such a fun project – you really made these rock! Let Love Grow (above) inspired by Mumford & Sons Winter Winds: Love, it will not betray you, dismay or enslave you, it will set you free… Here is Mumford & Sons live with Sigh No More (inspired above) – you have to listen to the song change about half-way though and then go …
