For the rest of the week, I'm going to give you a sneak peek of the new collections that we're launching at the stationery show. The two big debuts are our very first Letterpress Wedding Album (which I've been posting about here and there) and a new line of ours called Redesigned - a limited edition of letterpress misprints, reconstructed by hand.
In printing, there are bound to be misprints - too much ink here, too little there, a mis-score everywhere. But it makes me sad to throw away letterpress work - even if it's not perfect. So we've been collecting those misprints - keeping them for reuse - even though we had no idea how or what come of them. Above is one of our Redesigned offerings: a letterpress flower pin. I cut all the petals by hand, sewed them together, attached a button and a pin on the back - and tada! A letterpress pin! That could have been tossed.
We'll be launching our Redesigned line on our website next week to coincide with the show.
