Boxed Notes

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’m a push-over for vintage names – the less used the better. When I was pregnant with Evelyn back in 2007 I really loved the name Hazel. Then Julia Roberts had to name her baby Hazel. I was over ruled as well on Hazel because all my in-laws were joking about her being called Hazelnut Berry. Apparently my husband was sometimes called blueberry (I can’t remember why). People are SO smart…or at least they think they are! After Hazel was ruled out, I defaulted to my next favorite, Evelyn, and the minute she was born she was my sweet Evelyn Marie. In a world of perfect pregnancies, painless labors, mental stability and anti-aging bodies – I would love to have a few more babies. Wouldn’t it be so cute to have a little Frankie and Georgie (Francis and Georgia) running around the …

When ever you look at typography or monograms do you immediately go for your “letter”? I think the letter A has to be my favorite (obviously) – whimsical and fancy, these letterpress monogram notes are hard not to keep all to myself. If you remember back in May, these were debuted at National Stationery Show and were a HUGE hit! Due to our unexpected and complicated summer it took a lot longer to get these beauties shipped out to our new stores! The last of the packages have finally shipped just in time for holiday buying and are now available in the shop as well. Ready to score a letter “A” set for yourself for FREE? Leave a comment with your favorite “A” name, or the “A” name of someone you’d gift this to. Tweet for an extra entry with the hashtag …

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 …
