MONKEY BUSINESS

28 Jan

I had the pleasure of designing and printing a birthday invite for the most adorable little boy I know. He was such a great client and had only one request: MONKEYS!! What a blast creating this brightly colored postcard invite, thank you card and personal note card. Soon you will be able to go bananas too and get your own at the S+P shop.

Salt + Pepper is being featured in the Irish newspaper The Cork. My French half is very happy to be representing in Europe. What a great way to start the new year!

FIRST DATE WITH OUR NEW PRESS

15 Nov

After a much needed cleaning session, my new press Chandler was ready to print. With a little elbow grease and tons of simple green, I was able to remove 100 years of ink buildup, rust and old paint. Humm..(eyes tearing up)….I am totally in love with my new press. He prints beautifully with crisp lines and bold colors. Here is a little sneak peek at our holiday card.

Sookie keeping an eye out and making sure everything runs smoothly.


MEET CHANDLER

18 Oct

It has been one of the craziest weekends of my life. My husband and I drove to Oklahoma to pick up my first Chandler and Price letterpress. What we thought was going to be a one day trip ended up being a two day saga. Though it could have totally been a nightmare, this weekend ended up being incredibly rewarding and a story we will be sharing with our friends and family for many years to come.

So after a 7 hour drive and many beers later, I am very proud to introduce to you our new 1000lb letterpress: CHANDLER BING LANE PRICE (or as you may call him CHANDLER). I will be sharing my CHANDLER adventures with you guys every step of the way.

And special thanks to my wonderful husband for making this all happen.

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.

THE ZELLNER BABY- THANK YOU CARD

30 Aug

I had the great pleasure of working with Chad and Tressie Zellner of Two Pair Photography. This adorable couple is expecting their first baby Zellner. It was so much fun to collaborate on colors and looks. We created this adorable elephant design and made sure to print it in their baby colors (yellow, orange and red).

It was a great feeling to be able to return the favor, after they did such a wonderful job with our wedding and engagement photos. I can’t wait to see the all the amazing photos that are going to come about once cute little baby Zellner is born.

Here is a little video of the Baby Zellner Thank You card on press while printing the orange plate first.

Enjoy!

SEEING STRIPES

5 Aug

Who knew that printing plaid was possible by letterpress?! Considering each color has to be printed separately…..sigh…so dreamy. I am always blown away with Studio On Fire and how they push letterpressing to the next level.

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.
