luscious liners

oooh, how luxurious are hand-lined envelopes! with electronic mail and online social networks taking over the world, hand-written notes should be cherished more than ever.

i love the work of black pearl press and especially their amazing lined envelopes that accompany their custom cards. i love their patterns and the styling of the photographs too. their website is being revamped but check it out to see some examples of their fabulous letterpress printed work.

good fortune + the ABCs

remember those folded paper fortune teller thingys that you'd make in elementary school when you were supposed to be doing your work? nostalgia kicked in when i discovered this neatly-designed and witty paper fortune teller on design*sponge. so awesome that sycamore street press thought of creating a letterpress printed version! you can even purchase it online.

and do you also remember when you learned your ABCs? sycamore street press has simple but design-savvy prints of the alphabet and numbers for any little junior letterpress lovers out there. i like their colour combinations and the little animals that peek out around the letters and numbers..."next time won't you sing with me?"

oh baby!

this is one of the coolest birth announcements ever! its simple and stylish design is so unique and is bursting with character. it was designed by baby stella's parents tosh and victoria, and letterpress printed by mandate press in four spot colours on 100% cotton cranes lettra paper. heavenly! what a way to introduce a baby to the world.
