It’s baby season around here! Last month 3 ladies in our building were pregnant (Anna from Anna Mara Flowers, our own Rosa, and Michelle from Schoolhouse Electric). This month we welcome two new baby girls (congrats to Rosa and Anna and their families!), and we await the next arrival in February. Luckily, Tess has been on a sewing bender and a gifting roll! Here’s a peek at one of the gifts that went out this week. Tess used Lotta Jansdotter fabric, and found this modern rattle at Spielwerk Toys on North Williams Street in Portland.
This week Nole over at Oh So Beautiful Paper has presented a guest post a day about different printing processes – we love the idea and consider it a valuable resource. We were invited to post about the die-cutting process. Check out the post here, and see our video above.
We enjoy what we do. And doubly so when we are paired with amazing clients to design for. This year we had the rare opportunity to work with Mercy Corps on their holiday card. It was our largest print job to date, and the most rewarding. We were happy to donate our time to such a good cause. Big thanks to Jennifer Dillan and Matthew Marosz from the Mercy Corps creative team who were amazing to work with!
Mercy Corps helps communities world-wide providing education, emergency response, economic development, conflict management, micro lending, youth programs and much more. To learn more about this important organization, or to make a donation visit the Mercy Corps website.
T minus 5 days until the Portland Bazaar, spearheaded by the talented folks at Design Sponge, Wood and Faulk, and Antler and Co. We'll be there with our favorite letterpress cards, baby tees, holiday cards, value gift bundles and some limited edition goodies made just for the show! We are honored to be included in this unprecedented mix of Portland designers and shops and are excited to sneak in some holiday shopping while we are at it!
