Lots of festive printing today! This thank you note matches invitations I printed a few months back. I love the effect of this snowy scene, printed in clear ink, for a custom holiday party invitation. This is just part of a larger holiday project, so I’ll be sure to post more pictures when the rest of the job goes to press. And what a nice blue ink for this bar mitzvah announcement.

Will be finishing up a large calling card order tonight, which is the last of October’s custom stationery orders. Next week is onto November’s… I found these gorgeous beads at a flea market in Park Slope over the weekend. I thought they might be nice to use as a backdrop for some portfolio photos. Today’s clear ink printing seems like a perfect color match.
Just a few hours of printing today, using black ink only. I printed up two sets of calling cards, and half of the thank you notes. Tomorrow I’ll finish those up by adding a graphic in clear ink.
So excited to receive some gorgeous items in the mail today from Port2Port in Maine! After Maria posted our sample sale on her blog last week, we agreed to trade some of our recently printed goods. I made out like a bandit, thanks so much Maria! I especially love these wings, which complement yesterday’s post so well.
Plates are arriving Friday for a handful of calling card orders and a wedding thank you note. So today has been mostly computer work, namely laying out files for a custom holiday card and some initial proofs for a custom bookplate I’ve been asked to design and print. A new type of project for me, it should be really fun.
A wet day here in new york city. I had a bunch of cutting to do for four calling card jobs I plan to print later in the week (as soon as plates arrive). I remember back in the day, before I had access to Breck’s paper cutter around the corner. I used to cut stacks of cardstock on a small, not-so-accurate cutting board. I had multiple heart attacks over the coarse of the year, never able to predict when a stack would get eaten by an inaccurate cut. Vive la france!
Here are some shots of the guillotine tape measure, some paper and a very wet washington street.
A fun and exhausting day indeed. The arts festival and sale are wrapping up, and the crowds are shuffling toward subway entrances as we speak. We got to meet so many nice people, and were especially glad that Grace from Design*Sponge popped by.
I managed to pop down to Water Street this afternoon to check out Jane’s Carousel. Jane worked on restoring this 1922 carousel for 20 years, and it is breathtaking. I wish I could include an audio clip of the music, it really completes the experience. Here are some shots of the horses in motion…anyone in the new york city area should take a trip over to check it out. It’s definitely worth it.
