There’s nothing more valuable to an artist trying to make it than a truly supportive patron. Not only do they support you financially by buying your work (always important!), they boost your confidence and remind you that what you’re doing is indeed worthwhile. If you’re really lucky—like me—they also invite you to fabulous dinner parties and introduce you to their fabulous friends!
My favorite client ordered a set of stationery for each of her closest friends and family. It was a great collaborative experience in which she told me a little about each person’s personality and I designed a monogram or image just for them. I thought the pineapple card might be rather popular, so I printed extras and they’re also available here!
A woman I work with at that day job of mine has been hooking me up with awesome vintage cuts lately! Her boyfriend’s family happens to collect all kinds of antiques, and as will happen when you’re buying auction lots, has ended up with a fair share of vintage letterpress goods. Both of these cuts needed some work, but I finally invested in a Dremel a couple weeks ago and got them into printable shape in no time!
Wisconsin cards are available in the shop, bull is only special order at the moment, but don’t hesitate to get in touch if you’re interested. And if you have any printing plates laying around, send ‘em my way—you’ll get some free cards out of the deal!
I’ve had these in the shop for a few weeks, but haven’t had a chance to post them here. I’m now offering custom monogram cards using my new wood shadow type!
The process is simple: choose your letter, choose your color and choose your quantity. A set would make a great gift, so keep them in mind for the person who has everything this holiday season!
One of the best parts about buying handmade directly from the artist is the ability to collaborate on custom work. Unfortunately, this can be an expensive, overwhelming and relatively slow process, so I’ve been working on ways to make custom letterpress pieces more accessible. The solution? A customizable piece with a finite number of choices for each aspect of the design.
Introducing custom monogram note cards with the following options:
1. Choose your initials (2-4 characters):
2. Choose your design:
3. Choose a color from the palette:
