You saw a screen shot of these letterpress holiday cards awhile back, and now here’s the printed piece. My intern Adam had the lovely task pf printing these babies, and learning how overprints work with tight registration. Letterpress printed 2/0 with tint base added to the ink to create an awesome transparency with the over-printing. I hope love isn’t too Valentine’s for the holidays?! Wholesale buying for the Holiday 2010 Collection will be launching near the end of the week, and near the end of the month it will be available at retail for holiday buying!

I know we’re coming into Thanksgiving this next week here in the US, but we all know that the holidays are already on everyone’s minds. If you have been making your list and checking it twice (for mailings at least) and are looking for a mod and simple holiday card then the buck stops here. These A6 cards are letterpress printed and would fit a great wallet or 3×5″ photo of kids, family or a couple. Letterpress printed in sage, on 110# Lettra, it’s a flat card, so no need to fill the inside with a long message. Just put your photos on, sign and send off to all your friends and loved ones! Comes in a set of 10, paired with matching envelopes.

Hey friends! Happily, I’m swamped with letterpress work – business cards, invitations, holiday orders, wholesale! Unhappily my computer is giving me issues. With trying to launch some new goodies, get holiday listings updated in the shop and fulfilling the massive amounts of orders I have going on over the next few weeks, things will be sparse around here as I prepare to launch some small additives to the blog and complete the above list. Bear with me and come mid November I’ll be back with some new looking stuff and some SWEET giveaways! As for right now, I need to put my time to current jobs going through the studio, and the biz to prep for what’s coming up next!!! Thanks for understanding and make sure you check back regularly (or follow me on twitter – button on the right) as there …

Here are more Traditional Dingbat notes I shipped out a little while ago. With three more orders of these going through the studio this week, this is climbing the charts as my hottest personalized item, and has the quickest personalization turnaround of 8-10 business days (from approval of proof). I like these because the gift giver chose a dingbat that she wanted to double as an ampersand. If you check out the listing you can see other images of Traditional Dingbat in the thumbnails and customize yours with typeface (Goudy or Helvetica Neue), dingbat, and ink/envelope color. For +$15 I’ll print your envelopes too! The listing is for a set of 25, however I can do 50, 75 or 100 if you’d like. Get your order in before the holiday schedule gets too tight!

Chris came to me after feeling too much pressure to create his own announcements for his wedding (he’s a designer too) and needed some outside help with getting it right. The brief behind the event was that it needed to reflect Victorian as the wedding was dominantly following that era. It was a Christmas wedding with all things you can imagine of a typical Victorian Christmas. Sleighs, snowflakes, vintage illustrations, amazing historical mansion, you name it – if it was going to be Victorian, elegant and spectacular – they had thought of it. Below is one of the proofs explored. This was a traditional vertical layout with the emphasis on the silhouetted initial. Another dominant design element used in Victorian publications and invitations of the time period, this is the most minimalist of the three proofs presented. This one didn’t make the …

You may have remembered this giveaway a few months back or these I did for my dad. Colleen, the winner, chose this great crown for her dingbat and I am FINALLY getting around to posting the photos from her set of 25 Traditional Dingbat that she won. These were a hit last year during the holidays – shameless I know to even be mentioning the holidays – but I’m already starting to fill up my press schedule for custom gifts! To order some for you or as a gift you can click on to check out the full listing.
