Letterpress Craft Night Recap

Last week we had our letterpress craft night! It was a really great night. We were able to donate all the money from the tickets to our local community preschool. A huge thanks to my friend Rebecca Wright who planned the event. Over 50 people attended and we had a great time eating and learning about letterpress. Also a big thanks to all the brands who donated items for the gift bags! They were really good (see below.)

Andrea Pimental was our caterer.  She impressed everyone with homemade oreos and Mexican-inspired salads. Our new Craft Night logos (designed by the amazing Clayton Thompson) were printed on canvas tote bags which held all the sponsored swag.

Coatt sent over a few delicate necklaces with gold dots and dashes that spelled out words and phrases in morse code. Ours came with words like “yeehaw” and “lucky.” And Hello Merch supplied every excited attendee with their own Champ Sweatshirt.

The Succulence, an adorable local succulent supplier that also offers classes and landscaping services, sent over 50+ mini plants for us hand out. We planted them in magnetic pods from Urbio, an awesome Bay Area startup that specializes in modular organization.

Photojojo, who also happens to be our neighbor, made sure everyone received a Tokyo Dreamer camera strap. Made of durable vegan leather, these are strong enough to hold SLRs, DSLR’s and their big ‘ol lenses. Ps: check out their awesome Phoneography 101 class.

Finally, Paper Source donated all the paper and envelopes we used for the letterpress demonstration. Their Luxe paper line notecards are my favorite for letterpressing. And their envelopes are the best (and come in amazing colors.)

We’d like to say a huge thank you for everyone who attended – and to all of our wonderful sponsors! We’re in the process of coordinating more Craft Nights this month. So stay tuned for the announcements!

    So incredibly cute. I love the set up of everything. I recently went to an Artbomb Party where we made stuff to abandon on the streets of Baltimore, and it was such a fun experience! Love the collaboration of creative people. 🙂
