farewell 2006

Just one more day to go. I thought I’d post shots of my last project of the year, some gorgeous notecards designed by Arianna of The Petrol Club. I used a lot of blue and tan inks this holiday season…let’s see what colors 2007 holds!

This year’s international christmas ornament swap was so fun.
I think this one is my favorite, all the way from Beijing.

Last night was my last big printing session before Christmas. I finished four sets of custom flats, two sets of calling cards and a last minute rush order for restaurant business cards. This karate girl appears on one of the sets of flats, and she really captured my state of mind as I printed into the night. Today is trimming, packing and delivery. Tomorrow…shopping!

blue lace

These gorgeous flowers for my most recent save-the-dates were designed by the bride-to-be, who managed to hand-trace the lace on her dress. A heroic effort, and it really paid off. I love how the flowers really do look hand drawn, it has that loose feeling of lace. I’m excited to start working on these invitations early next year.

The last day of a very busy stretch, I’m finishing up loads of jobs today. This weekend I’ve been tackling a save-the-date card, two holiday cards, three sets of calling cards and a large stack of various custom notecards. I’m just off to the corner to do some cutting on the guillotine and then I’ll fire up the press.

Yesterday’s sale at the Center For Book Arts was so fun. I picked up so many nice handmade things, including some stunning work from artist Nancy Loeber. I’m going to take some photos of Nancy’s stuff and definitely post a link to her as soon as her website/portofolio is up online.

I spent this afternoon walking around dumbo posting sample sale signs. Tomorrow is our studio sale (not to be confused with the many other sales I’ve been writing about). We do this just a few times a year, but it’s always a nice chance to see our neighbors and chat about “how much dumbo is changing”. Stop on by of you’re in the area!
