Thank You Cards

Here are a couple photos of  some thank you cards I recently designed. It’s all custom typography, screen printed by The Prince Ink Co, on French Paper. They are flat (postcard style) cards that I will be using to send to my clients and other wonderful people I have the good fortune of working with.

Our Loft – Atelier

Finally posting a few photos of our loft. The loft in our house serves as my office, as well as where my wife curls up on the sofa and watches Netlfix. We took out the carpet and added plain pine planks, and painted them white. I really like how the white floor turned out. Probably arounf $2 or $3 a sq foot. I used some iron pipe for the local hardware store to make the the light fixture over the desk. That totaled around $75. It’s about 85% done at this point. There are is still some furniture and art I want to add/change when we have some money for it.

Making Textures

I recently tried a new (to me) method for making textures to use in some of my designs. I like using textures in my work because it can add depth and character if used correctly. But, less is more.

In this case I used a brayer and some block printing ink, just on plain paper. Then I scanned the result and recolored the texture to suit my needs. I tried a wood-type inspired piece for a trial run and I think it came out well. Dedicated to my love of Antiques Roadshow.

Some photos of my new personal business cards. They were printed by the good folks at The Mandate Press. 1 color on Crane Lettra 220, white, and then edge painted. I had a couple rubber stamps made to add an additional hand made touch.
