Hot off the Press(es)

I've been a busy bee at the shop lately - finished several print jobs last week, and we've been crazy prepping for the Stationery Show in just a few short weeks. But before that, we're teaming up with Taza Chocolate again for another Paper & Chocolate event, to coincide with Somerville Open Studios May 5th and 6th. More on that soon. For now, here's a look at the produce from the past week.

Our first poster commission was printed last week - a concert poster for a choral group at Harvard. I love the swashes and ligatures on the small font - look at the Ch, The and ng! Simple, elegant, and totally luxe on Lettra stock... it's a shame they'll all be torn down by the facilities services folks only a day or two after they go up.

I found this herald cut in a box and it added just the right amount of levity to the understated design.

Next there were a couple sets of business cards. Ooooh, I just adore these - the retro typewriter, the markups, everything! It's always exciting when a client lets you go hog wild with design, really come up with something new that suits them to a T.

And another set of business cards. Scribe is a great stationery shop up in Marblehead, MA, one of my favorite retailers! So when Grace, the owner, asked me to reprint their business cards (and revamp the layout) I was delighted to accept. They really came out beautifully.

That's all the new printing for now. Next week two sets of postcards and maybe, just maybe, the new website will be up and running.
