Brand new Valentine

We have added a new notecard to our range. It is great for Valentine's Day but as with so many of our items, you can really send it at any time of the year. I've also been experimenting with 'styling' our photos a little more - cue calligraphy, props and artful arrangements! I think it does help to show how lovely our products are: what do you think?

We're also getting ready to run a workshop with Etsy: print your own Valentines! We've designed a bunch of really cute little cards and participants will have the opportunity to print a sheet of these and then cut them out and color them in themselves. Stay tuned for photos and a round up of the event!

Bags Of Mystery...

Each year, we take part in the Dumbo Arts Festival and we sell off lots of our stock at great prices. Our "Bags of Mystery" are always really popular: sandwich bags filled with a whole range of stationery - you don't know what you've got until you buy it and open it up!

This year, we have had loads of comments about the bags themselves so we are printing up a very limited edition for purchase! Here are some photos of Naho printing them on our Vandercook printing press...

Studio Video

We had a really sweet journalism student, Alejandra Russi, visit us in the Spring as part of a video profile project she was working on for a class. Here is a link to the little video she shot at the studio: http://vimeo.com/41868638 Alejandra took some beautiful photos of the studio too and sent them for us to share on our blog. It's cool to see what catches someone's eye when they come to the studio for the first time. I love the still life pictures of tools!
