More monograms

These A6 monogramed cards were really fun to make. I like creating from things I can find around the studio. I used wood type, metal type, & left over polymer plate artwork for this design.

Gift Tags

This was a pretty last minute addition to a print job I did this week. I was about to start printing, when the guilt of leaving a perfectly good printable area on my press sheet blank forced me to set more type and make something. For the picture, I attached the tag to a present for me already under the tree --- I think it is a book (best not to touch before the actual day; I'm a good guesser).

More bold wood type, this time in a folding A2 monogrammed card. I like experimenting with color and what happens when different inks overlap.

Thank you

Today I printed some Thank You cards for my good friends Erin & Paul. Paul brought me some nice kraft color paper and we sifted through my type collection for just the right combination.

Wow, I can't believe it is already December. Time to start thinking like Santa... Above is a Santa inspired card I made with some different sizes of woodtype. 

The radio broadcaster just said it might snow on Friday!

Holiday Preview

This cloudy, chilly weekend started to get me thinking about the holidays. In the spirit of giving, my friend Laura loaned me some of her wood type to play with (YEA!). Here is a little preview.

La Dolce Vita

Here is a quick snap shot of some business cards I printed for La Dolce Vita Photography. They do beautiful wedding photography, and needed a sweet card to match. Trina with Emblem did an amazing design job. I was happy to be a part of the project!

It's a start

Welcome to my blog: Here is a picture of my letterpress, a Vandercook SP-15...it is a labor of love. My good friend Chelsea with MightyBean Photography came over and took some images of my studio for me. Thank you Chelsea!
