Leave a comment below telling us why your friends are a great couple! The contest runs February 20th through the 27th and our lucky winner will be chosen at random.

UPDATE--WE HAVE A WINNER!

The randomly chosen WINNER of our giveaway goes to Bridget and Nathan! We can't wait to get to know them more as we help them create beautiful wedding invites.

We had a LOT of entries to our contest (two couples in particular who we will call Joeren or Lauryll wowed us with Get Out The Vote campaigns carried out by their loved ones). All the nominated couples are truly adored and we'd like to send all of them a small bundle of cards and a discount code for custom printing.

A great big CONGRATULATIONS to them all and many, many happy returns from all of us at Egg Press!

Even though USPS offers quite a great variety at any given time, sometimes I lament the fact that I can't find JUST the right stamp to match the feel of my letter. So I was very excited to discover this Etsy shop VerdeStudio which sells collections of unused vintage stamps. Each collection is chosen around a theme or color scheme. Wouldn't it be fun to use some of these Literary Ladies stamps for a valentine? Maybe along with a Emily Dickinson poem hand-written on the envelope?

There's a certain slant of light,
On winter afternoons,
That oppresses, like the weight
Of cathedral tunes.

We have the perfect card for all the sweet people in your life--your favorite barista, your best friend, your nephew, your mom. We're wondering...what's the craziest place you've written a valentine? In the closet? In your car? Between the sheets? Oooh. Tell us below to enter! The winner will be chosen at random and announced on January 24th. For an EXTRA chance to win, head over to our Facebook page and enter there as well.

It's that time of year again… Time for the Portland Bazaar - and we are so excited to participate! As we speak, our little elves are sewing limited edition pouches and stockings for the occasion. We'll be sharing a space with the talented gals from Anna Mara Flowers who will be sprucing up the place (pun intended) with wreaths, greenery, bulbs, ornaments and gift-able plants. We'll be bringing a curated selection of letterpress goods, delicious chocolates from Droga (with packaging by yours truly), wall art, coasters, gift wrap and more. Join in the early-entry-fun Friday night with drinks, or come say hi on Saturday or Sunday… We'll be there with bells on!

P.S. See above for in-house screen printed fabric we're using for pouches and stockings this year!

What we wouldn't give to be in NYC the weekend of December 6-8th for what sounds to us like the best shopping experience ever! Exclusive artisan items for the kitchen, pantry and home, workshops on flower arranging alongside a variety of chefs with Kitchensurfing who will be serving breakfast lunch and dinner. Definitely our kind of party. If you'll be in NYC, mark your calendars. If not, be sure to visit them online and have a peek at the coasters we developed with them in mind.
