Tip: Edge painting

Photo from Oh So Beautiful Paper

I've had a lot of people ask me how to do edge painting for business cards and other stationery projects. I can only give the vaguest answer on how I guess it's done, since I've never actually done it. But now I can give a much better answer... check out this post over on Oh So Beautiful Paper!

In the studio...

Happy Monday! Just thought I'd share this photo:

Melanie, one of our Letterpress Associates, had a beautiful baby girl last August and has been out of the studio doing mom-type things. But she's gradually making her way back in to Pyramid more often. This is one of her first projects since she's been back: personal stationery for baby Elsie! So cute!

Happy Hour 1.5.12

Happy New Year everyone! Just thought I'd post some photos from our very first 2012 Letterpress Happy Hour! Erik came by to set some type for some new year's cards (above).

Janine also came to set some type to make a wedding gift for some friends:

She also came bearing gifts! She brought a drawer of type (and cookies--not pictured). Here's the drawer of type in its new home:
And here's what the type looks like... it's an 8-point italic typeface:

And lastly, Lauren came by to finish up her prints:

Hope to see you next time!
