Letterpress Classes

I’ve really enjoyed teaching letterpress classes the last two years. If things go as planned and we get our French visas in a few weeks (fingers crossed) then I’ll be on hiatus for 2011. So October and November is the last chance to print your own business cards. You can either choose your a design from one of these or else submit your own design and we print them all together. They are one color/one sided and usually printed in a gray or a very dark blue (the class votes). You get 250 business cards. The class is $125/student and the price includes all supplies.

Stamp Wedding Invitation

I loved this wedding invitation suite designed by Nichole Tremblay at Coral Pheasant and printed at Studio on Fire. My favorite part is how they got creative with the envelope orientation and the stamp on the RSVP envelope. I love to geek out on letterpress stuff. Other letterpress stuff I’m having a crush on: this florescent pink edging and this color gradient wedding invitation.


Rifle Halloween

I think the new invites and Halloween cards over at Rifle are so perfect. Sometimes you forget how easy it is to buy invitations with blanks you just have to fill in, especially if they are as adorable as these.

Fall Letterpress Classes Announced

Today I’m announcing the Fall Letterpress Classes. For those of you not familiar with the class you either send in a design yourself or choose one of the designs right here a week before the class and we make a plate. Then the day of the class you get to print 250 of your own letterpress cards. The class is in San Francisco and costs $125. Email me to sign up: ohhappydayblog@gmail.com More information about the class here. Below are two designs from previous students.

Passing Notes

I don’t know of anyone who does more beautiful work than Abbie of Passing Notes. I think the reason I love her work so much is it is so tactile. Her creations are amazing.
