laser-etched acrylic invitations

We like finding new ways to do things. When asked to create a rustic invitation, we went to an untraditional form - laser-etched acrylic. Of course, there's the traditional way of using acrylic and then there's our way. We went with a faux bois faced cream acrylic that carried a slightly ironic retro-air to it.We referenced the event's design elements - wood folding chairs and chickenwire. Our favorite element is the blind chicken wire on...

pinterest | here we go

Right now, I'm trying to figure the logistics of placing an inspiration board in the space that doubles as my studio and our 15 month old's play space. While I'm working on that, I've been thinking about the digital equivalent. Thanks to my lovely sister, I got an invite to Pinterest yesterday.

a beautiful community

Like most of my generation, the idea of community is very important to me. I have an innate need for a sense of belonging and common focus. When I started this business, I felt pretty alone. I knew there were plenty of other stationers and printers out there and had reached out to many of them. Most were great, but were so busy with their own projects that there was no time to sit together...

I can't remember where I first saw...

out of the studio | walt cannoy

So. Here's the thing: I've known Walt for a little while now and seen most of the images of his work he puts on facebook and his website. But tonight.  Tonight I saw them in person.  On a wall.  Walt's part of the current exhibition at Arts on the Park in Lakeland, Florida.And his work absolutely floored me. Seriously.  He's not paying me to write this.Walt's work is absolutely breathtaking and should not be missed.  The prices that he...

style

I just read a great article on style from a somewhat surprising source.  Peter Shankman's Clothing Helps Make The Style. Style Helps Makes Your Brand is an insightful look into the realities of our ever casual world.  While Peter's talking specifically about fashion (men's fashion, nonetheless - one of my favorite subjects), the concept applies to all the ways we interface with one another; stationery included.  Check out Peter's simple rules:1) Good style never goes out...
