I love Pinterest, don’t get me wrong. But there’s nothing that beats my cork wall of pin-up inspiration. Everything from gum wrappers, paper swatches and fun stickers go up on my board. I just saw this Pattern Box: 100 Postcards by 10 Contemporary Pattern Designers from Princeton Architectural Press, and thought this is a MUST-HAVE. Thought a few of you out there would share the same urgency as me. Enjoy~
Letterpress is beautiful. Its elegant, it feels great in your hands and we love the craft. But why does it always have to be so cute and sweet all the time?!?! I mean really? Since when did ALL letterpressed stationary become so precious? Terrapin Stationers clearly understood this was a problem and wanted to grab people’s attention. With their line of provocative cards, this old time stationer right in NYC is catching some attention. (via cool hunting)
I had to post my friend Ursula who runs Pepper Press today. Not only does she have a wonderful personality, but she’s starting to make her mark as a letterpress stationary designer with her simple and well crafted cards. Pepper Press has a sense of femininity without the fluff and her cards always feel like they’re meant for those of you that want to say something special without overdoing it. I just saw some of her new cards today and wanted to share. Thanks Ursula!!
Okay, so I think this is just hilarious and brilliant. You know how you’ve always wanted a card that was multi-functional and interesting? I don’t know if you can get any better than this. Bryce Bell of Cardnetics has created Cardapult V2, a business card that doubles as a miniature catapult. You can now successfully fling across tic tacs, m&m’s, or spit wads to your most favorite co-worker. You can get custom printing on the cards starting at 66 cents. Definitely worth checking out!
