This week Egg Press got a special delivery – a new Heidelberg press from Salem, Oregon. It will take a little time to get her up and running –some new parts here, a little oil there, and she'll be good to go. We are celebrating our new press and paying homage to our existing Heidelberg with a short film: Frau Heidelberg.
Happy Monday to you all. It is a VERY happy Monday at Egg Press HQ – the sun is shining, and our gluten free co-worker Lisa (manager of all custom jobs here at EP) made a batch of the most delicious gluten free vegan cookies to share with us all: the BabyCakes Thin Mint. As a result, the cookbook has been added to our wishlists (even the butter-lovers among us). Until cookbooks are in hand we'll reference the recipe on the Baby Cakes NYC blog.
We love you Lisa!
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.
