Cards, cards, cards

After doing more cutting orders in December than in the previous six months combined, we decided to make it faster and more inexpensive for you to get pre-cut cards.  Starting this month we're now offering Lettra 300gsm cards in A2 and A6 sizes as stock items.  No more waiting, no more cutting charges.

Anything else you'd like to see us stock?  Let us know.

Jessica Hische Loves Letters

Brooklyn (by way of Philly) designer/illustartor/typographer/artist Jessica Hische came on our radar this week via her Drop Cap Project. In her words:

Daily Drop Cap is a project I started in September of 2009 in which I illustrate a decorative letter every day (or at least every work day). The project will continue for approximately twelve alphabets and are available for non-commercial use as drop caps on your personal blog.

She also made limited edition 8x8 letterpress prints of each letter for sale individually or as a set.  (If you buy the whole set she'll send you a cake as well!)  They're currently on display at Art in the Age in Philadelphia.

Only a few years removed from art school, she's already very accomplished - she was featured as one of Step Magazine’s 25 Emerging Artists, Communication Arts “Fresh”, Print Magazine’s New Visual Artists 2009 (commonly referred to as Print’s 20 under 30), and The Art Directors Club Young Guns.

Here's a short look into Jessica and the project:



New site launched, people rejoice

Welcome aboard.  We hope you like the new site.  We're going to use the blog to feature a lot of the cool and interesting work done on our papers, new papers, new trends - pretty much anything we find interesting. ( If you'd like your work to be considered, please let us know.)

Special thanks to Fresh Impression Letterpress Studio for help with much of the artwork.  So to start off, here's a recent project they did on Lettra.
