paper + letterpress
Abby sent me these airbrushed invitations by Anisa Suthayalai and Alex Lin. Formerly both of Default and now Default and StudioLin. These are so beautiful.
Here are some casual calling cards I recently made. “First Person Shooter” is referring to a video game genre but I took some liberty with the concept. I printed the text and bullseye with a very small amount of opaque white ink and the orange I mixed the color myself. Then I added small bullet holes by hand with a 1/16″ hole punch.
I’ve been printing a lot lately, here are some cards I made for my friend Aubrey. Letterpress paper takes watercolor really nicely (100% cotton). For these I printed with white ink which gives the text a little more legibility than if you just do a blind deboss. Then I went over each one with a little water color. I love that they are simple and each one is different.
Paul and I share an art studio on Valencia Street here in San Francisco. I recently sold one of my presses so I spruced up my letterpress corner. It is much more cozy and comfortable to work here now. (Don’t forget to sign up for letterpress classes. Saturday’s class deadline is today, two more spots! go here for more information.)
