Tutkulu bir aşk deyince akla ilk gelen çiftlerdenseniz, mekandan süslemeye iddialı bir düğün planladıysanız, o halde Düğün Davetiye de en az düğününüz ve aşkınız kadar iddialı olmalı. Davetiye modelleri için incelemeye başlayabilirsiniz.
Last year I had an Etsy costumer who lost her baby. She purchased an ornament with his name to remember him by. My heart broke for her as I thought about how hard Christmas would be. She had the joy and expectancy of a new life but now her Christmas would be a reminder of loss. I wanted to send a card with her ornament expressing my sympathy. •
I didn’t know her and I don’t know the pain of losing a child but I wanted to find a card that let her know how sorry I was for her loss. Eventually I found one but It was really hard to find a card that was appropriate. That experience was what inspired this card. •
If you who know someone having a hard Christmas and you want to let them know you care this card is for you (for them). You don’t have to know the pain someone is going through to reach out to them. It can be intimidating to reach out to someone going through hardship that you yourself have never experienced. And it’s even harder to know what to say to someone in the midst of struggles. But I encourage you to reach out to them even if you don’t have the perfect words to say. For the hurting person, to know that somebody cares is all that is needed sometimes. •
These cards are available through my Etsy shop. If there is someone that comes to mind as you read this post reach out to them! You can help make their Christmas a little brighter.
Tomorrow! Stop by after work to see our latest goods (new calendars!), say hi (wine!), and help us inaugurate our December retail hours in the shop! Tomorrow (Friday!) 5-7 at 40 Rice Street, PVD and then 12-6 Wednesday’s through Fridays for the month of December! It’s a Chanukah Miracle! #miracles#chanukah#dwripopup#holidaygifts#printing#letterpress (and maybe I won’t be done with work work and you can see the Linotype Daily in action!)

Sad day in the print shop. One of Grandpa’s putty knives snapped in two. 😕
Take a quick second to thank it for all its years of use, then move on. Gotta keep printing.

What a difference a day makes! Okay, two days 😉 Here are before and after shots of our renovation project in the print shop last weekend!
Incredibly grateful for my amazing parents who came from Vermont to do this with my husband and I; for my brave business partners who supported these changes to a place so close to their hearts (and put in new windows!); our friend Fred for the guidance and pro tools; and all of you for asking to see more of these beautiful machines, and this one of a kind workshop we all adore.
I'm so thankful for a most memorable holiday spent with so much family, both personal and professional.
Please stay tuned!

I love when clients have the vision to beautifully combine elements from past work into something so unique to them (though I’d expect nothing less from this creative couple!). Our Veronica leaf, with classic text layout and the most perfect dash of a handwritten font for a Haiku Mill wedding. #swellpressweddings

I’ve been working on some little “notes to self” that are meant to be like sticky notes you might put on your bathroom mirror or refrigerator as reminders, just a bit prettier. ✨ There are a lot of things I need reminding of, but I was struck by the opposing nature of these two and wondered who else had struggled feeling like they were simultaneously “too much” and “not enough.” I’m still sorting through the “too much” part, but I have found more truth lately in my enoughness by seeing it more as a measure of the heart and the reach than just the metrics of accomplishment, and setting my standards of success by growth rather than perfection. If my goal is being externally perfect, then it’s true: I’m not enough nor will I ever be. But if I’ve set my heart to give the important people and tasks in my life my weak but full “all”, what more would be enough but that? Wishing you all peace and encouragement today - I have a feeling you’re very “enough” in more ways than you think. ❤️
Today is the first day of #justacardweek so 👋. The prompt is you, your face and your story. So above is a picture of me and my face; and here is a bit more about me: I’m 32 and I work for the NHS full time in communications. I make linocut prints in my evenings and at weekends and you’ll find me selling these are fairs and markets across Leeds fairly often throughout the year! I also teach workshops and stock a few independent shops here and there. What inspires me is mostly flora and fauna, story telling and history. I studied Illustration at Loughborough University many moons ago. I’m also a Type 1 Diabetic.

2020 is such a big year, there's an extra day in it! Our big calendar (approx. 13 × 20 inches) is just large enough, and even has room to spare, to note your important appointments and special events. And, it features one of the most recognizable typefaces of all time, Cooper Black, really small and really big, printed using some of the most eye-pleasing split fountains, you'll just want to line a wall with them. Available in our gift shop, here in Nashville, and online too! #limitededition#letterpress#getinky#cooperblack#preservationthroughproduction
