IT’S A DATE

24 Sep

I always love beautiful calendars. It’s so hard to throw them away after the year has flown by.  I end up reusing the art from the calendars to spruce up a picture frame or put some framed work up on the bare patch of a wall. Check these beauties out because it’s already time to start planning for next year.

These are from New Jersey based letterpress shop Norman’s Printery.

Paper Source always has such a good selection of calendars and planning tools.

I can’t get over these monthly planners from Moleskine. A different color for every month?! Does it defeat the purpose if you don’t actually write in them?


Miles of Light created this beautiful handmade feather one sheet calendar that would be beautiful above any desk.

How cute are these monthly planners with hand drawn covers and pastel hues from Letter C Designs.

SHOW + TELL: HATCH SHOW PRINT

13 Sep

When you think of music posters, you automatically go to screen printing (I know I have my fair share of them hanging on my walls) but the folks over at Hatch Show Print were some of the pioneers in poster making. They are, in fact, the oldest letterpress shop in America and when you walk into their shop, you take a step back in time. They have produced posters for Country Music Hall of Fame legends Johnny Cash, Hank Williams and Bill Monroe (just to name a few). What makes them so unique is the fact that they use old woodblocks, metal type, metal plates and hand carved blocks to compose their posters. These days, almost all letterpress art you see has been created on the computer and sent off to have plates made. Hatch Show Print are true craftsmen and work with the traditional materials to make their posters timeless.

You might remember the June 2009 Anthropologie catalog, it was absolutely beautiful. Anthropologie and Hatch Show Print teamed up to produce the eye-catching book.

I can’t wait to get up to Nashville and get my little piece of history.

SHOW + TELL: ONE CANOE TWO

26 Jul

Always fun to go see what One Canoe Two is up to. Their Etsy shop is filled with whimsical handmade paper goods. But what really caught my eye, was the presidential poster. I mean, it’s  Guess Who- The Presidential Edition.

These letterpress coasters are super cute. I don’t know if I could bring myself to place any drinks on them.

And these versatile letterpress labels are great to have around the house to keep your organized.

WHAT IS LETTERPRESS

16 Jul

I found this great letterpress project from Studio On Fire. It’s a perfect example on the behind-the-scenes action of the letterpress world. Here is a quick glimpse into the art of letterpress printing from start to finish.

First comes concept and sketching of ideas
Next is recreating the sketch as vector art on the computer
Once the art is created on the computer it gets sent off to be made into photopolymer plates (which look like big ugly stickers).
And the final step is printing!!

I can’t wait to get to it this weekend.

Happy weekend!!!

JESSICA HISCHE

9 Jul

I have a total girl crush! Jessica Hische is only 25 years old, and has already made a huge name for herself in the design and typography community. I drool over her daily letter blog, Daily Drop Cap, where she creates a capital letter every day in a completely new and fresh way. Her website is also a very dangerous place to get lost in. It’s filled with so much beautiful typography that you can’t help but start doodling your own on some scratch paper. If your heart goes pitter patter like mine does at the sight of these, then scoot on over to her online store and get some for yourself.

OUR COUNTRY WEDDING, Y’ALL

7 Jul

After over a year of planning a wedding, I can honestly say it has been the most stressful experience of my life. It has also been the most rewarding. It’s like a version of yourself comes out and takes over. A very neurotic and hyper focus version of you. But now that I am on the “other side” and experiencing marital bliss, I have found so much appreciation for the art of weddings. I love going to weddings now and seeing how much the bride and groom have put of themselves into every single layer of the wedding experience.

So here is the project that started it all. From buying my letterpress to taking my paper obsession to the next level.

Here is my wedding letterpress suite (pictures of our happy day will be coming soon via the awesome duo known as Two Pair Photography).

-Printed on Holyoke 100% cotton paper.

- Custom cattle iron and hand branded into wood backing.

-Fold out poster with directions and activities on back.

-RSVP postcard with vintage Texas longhorn image.

Enjoy!

GOOD TASTE, BABY!

7 Jul

I secretly wish I had a baby so I can decorate a nursery with these modern animal posters from a modern eden. Even babies have to roll in style even if it’s secretly for you.
