Letterpress Calendar Press!

To get our calendar a little more exposure, I posted it on Etsy. Looks like we've got a fan! Rebecca featured our calendar on her site Florence Finds as part of her holiday gift guide (pictured above).

We're also proud to be featured in Paper Crave's and Oh So Beautiful Paper's 2012 calendar round ups and in blog posts on All Things Aimee and Fifi Cheek!

If you haven't already gotten yours, get moving! The calendars will be available at Saturday's Make & Take event and online at Pyramid's sales page.

In the studio...

Earlier this week, I gave an introductory lesson to Whitney Porter and Lauren Thorp.

Whitney's done a nice blog post documenting the lesson over on her blog, Throwing Cake. Love how excited and enthusiastic she is! I can't wait to see them both back in the studio!

Type Truck Visit

Here are some photos from the Pyramid-sponsored Type Truck stop earlier this month!

The truck parked just south of Dupont Circle on 19th Street NW (special thanks to Miranda for volunteering to take care of the permit application):

Truck owner, Kyle, talking with one of our visitors:

Leslie admires the map showing where the truck's been so far:

And a photo of Kyle's tour poster in its new home at Pyramid:

The event was a lot of fun. We wish Kyle a lot of luck on the rest of her tour and hope to see her again soon!

Erika came by to set type for her second color on these cards:

Alyson came by to pick up her Letterpress Calendars and also to play around with setting some type for her holiday cards. Here are some proofs:
