In the studio...

Once again, I happened to be at the studio when someone was making something beautiful! Unfortunately, the photos don't really do it justice...

A wedding invitation designed and printed by Erin Vincent:

A closer shot of the calligraphy, done by Erin herself:

So pretty!

In the studio...

This may be the cutest thing I've seen at the studio: Erin and Peter, making valentines together! I happened to stop by the studio as they were getting ready to print the second color of these really awesome valentines.

Here they are, trying to register their second plate:

Choosing the shade of pink for the hearts to go between the two figures:

I'll have to add a photo of the finished valentines some time!

In the studio...

Alright... time to catch up on some blog posts! There's been a lot of activity in the studio recently. One new member of our community is Brei Stevenson of Cucumber Press. She recently moved to Richmond and occasionally makes the weekend trek up to Silver Spring to do some printing. I happened to come by one day as she was finishing up some prints:

Here are a couple nice photos taken by Brei that are posted on her blog:

Erika came by to finish up some notecards/valentines:

And Erin was there to do some proofing for her own valentines:

The next Letterpress Happy Hour will be the 15th. Hope to see you there!
