uppercase types

i've become enamoured with uppercase magazine. the design and content of this high-quality publication is second to none! based out of calgary, alberta it features goodies, info and articles for creative-types such as design, illustration, photography, books, textiles, stationery, crafts and lots, lots more. when i read that their next issue (#8, available in february 2011) features letterpress it made me love them even more. :)

above is a sample of one of the spreads in the next issue. included in the letterpress issue will be an actual sample of letterpress printing provided by various letterpress studios. also featured will be an interview with studio on fire, an incredibly creative and talented studio in minneapolis which i have mentioned before...they printed the oh-so-cool-and-brilliant campfire for graphic design and branding firm swink. oooh, can't wait for issue 8 to come out!

scallop me

as you may know egg press is one of my favourite letterpress studios. these pretty red and green vintagey-feeling cards have an adorable scalloped edge and cute christmassy graphics. bring on the egg nog and candy canes!
