Recently bought this piece from The Hungry Workshop for a bit of inspiration - the registration is absolutely perfect!

I really need to get my butt in gear and get back on the press!

Balloon Fill-In Party Invites

Balloon Fill-In Party Invites

New party invites I did on the weekend - contact me if you’re interested in them!

As usual even the most simple design in letterpress can have it’s ups and downs. At one point the balloon wasn’t getting inked at all by the rollers, even though everything seemed to be ok. After pulling out and putting the chase back in about 5 times it magically started inking again - go figure! I’m blaming the wooden chase.

Letterpress Birth Announcements

Letterpress Birth Announcements

Last weekend I finished printing the second colour of these fill-in birth announcements that I’ve had sitting around for ages. I’m so happy with how these turned out. I’ve got another style that I’ve yet to print, as well as birthday invitations, baby shower invites, notebooks… the list goes on.

Anyway, as I’ve only got a few of these announcements I probably won’t put them up on the Etsy store but if anyone’s interested in them contact me and I can make them to order.

My friend Jacqui, who I’ve worked with for many years, has just finished work in preparation for motherhood for the first time (eek!) and has started up Slade Studios, a range of beautiful invitations and cards which can be printed yourself or printed for you, and can be completely customised.

Jacqui has a Etsy store, but you can also order through her website and browse the full collection here. Check it out!

Sneak Peek

Here’s a sneak peek at some of the new stuff I’m designing. I still have a lot of work to go yet before I get more plates made but I think these are going to look fantastic once I get them on the press.

Yellow & Grey Fill-In Invitations

Yellow & Grey Fill-In Invitations

The yellow & grey fill-in invitations are now up in my Etsy store!

While I didn’t find A2 sized envelopes to fit them, the australian sized C6 envelopes fit fairly nicely just being a bit wider than the invitations, plus the yellow is an exact match!

L Letterpress Paper

L Letterpress Paper

While I was in Spotlight I found the L Letterpress Kit which is a cheapo plastic device that kinda sorta produces letterpress goods. While I wasn’t interested in the kit, they also sold precut paper to use with the machine so I bought some to test on the press.

Suprisingly the paper did well, almost as good as Lettra and has the same whiteness. As you can see from the pics above the impression was nice and deep. The only issue with using this paper really is that the sizes are for the US, so this paper size is A2 (5.5” x 4.25” or 14cm x 10.8cm), plus the paper works out to be a little more expensive.

Anyway I will be putting up some of these invitations on my Etsy store as soon as I buy some envelopes to fit them.
