These whimsical business cards were designed by Kathleen Sobr. They have a hidden feature that lets you make your dog as long as you like. The super pink edge painting and dense 220# Crane’s Lettra really help these letterpress business cards stand out. Some people ask us our secret to edge painting. It’s simple! Call us, we’ll do it for you. Of course we can’t reveal our delicate trade secrets. However, we’re proud to say that it is a non-toxic, water based process that results in a perfect edge color with no bleed-through.

These 100% recycled chipboard business cards were printed for Strawfoot Handmade, a small workshop in Santa Cruz, California. They make amazing, handcrafted bags from locally-sourced waxed cotton canvas. The craftsmanship is obvious when you explore the hand-tooling and care that goes into each seam of these bags, which are created with a vintage, single-needle sewing machine. You need a bag from Strawfoot Handmade. Once you’ve had one, no other will do.
These custom letterpress bookplates were printed for the Tamworth Lyceum of Tamworth, New Hampshire. The Lyceum is a really interesting concept for a small town. It’s kind of a mix between a general store and social gathering place. We’re always looking for that “third place,” and if we lived there, this would be it. They host art exhibitions and workshops, too. Check out their website (and read their much better description of themselves) and swing by for a visit if you’re close!
Welcome to the world, Oliver! These birth announcements were designed by the proud Dad, Greg Christman. We love working with Greg because his work is so bold and communicative, which is perfectly expressed with the letterpress printing process.
