A Fresh Start | 2015

Happy New Year! It's that time again for getting organized and following through with your New Year's resolution(s)! Did you make any this year? I don't usually make resolutions per se, but I do have a few areas where I want to make some improvements this year – such as drinking more water, taking better care of myself generally, increasing my gym time to train for this year's Tough Mudder, and so on.

Getting more organized is always on my list – New Year or not! Above are a few of my pics for sticking with a "Get more organized in 2015" resolution!

{ 1. Paper Mate Flair Pens. I use these babies to color-code my day planner and the activities/events for everyone in our family; 2. Nate Berkus Gold Scissors. Nothing makes a desk look prettier than a few gold accessories; 3. Sugar Paper's 2015 Planner. I use this one every year; 4. Thank You Notes from Sunlit Letterpress. You vowed to write thank-yous for your holiday gifts – now is the time to get it done! 5. Nate Berkus Gold Stapler; Mr. Berkus can do no wrong; 6. Custom Calligraphy Letterpress Business Cards from Sunlit Letterpress. Get your business and social life in gear with custom cards that leave a lasting impression; 7. Custom Calligraphy Digital Business Cards from Sunlit Letterpress. Our digitally-printed custom calligraphy cards are crisp and elegant, with a lower price tag and faster turnaround than our letterpress options; 8. Threshold Kitchen Canisters. Though meant for your kitchen, I use a variety of these pretty canisters to store desk accessories like clips, pens, etc.; 9. Letterpress Lovers Club Subscription from Sunlit Letterpress. Be extra organized and always have stationery on hand for birthdays and other celebrations. Fresh stationery is delivered monthly with this subscription box service, and averages about 4-5 cards per mailing; 10. The Lettermate Addressing Guide. Your card recipients will think you are both talented and organized when you create beautiful envelopes using this guide for your lettering. No more uneven lines or badly centered writing! }

Custom Brush Script Letterpress Business Cards

Do you love brush script as much as I do? A good, organic brush script is truly one of my favorite things, maybe next to modern calligraphy. I wanted to offer a custom letterpress business card that would suit clients with a shared love of hand-lettering – and so here it is! These cards are perfect for established professionals, but also for those who are just starting out and who maybe don't yet have a logo or set branding, but who want to stand out nonetheless and make a bold statement with their business cards.

What happens when you order these brush script letterpress cards? I will take your name and write it in brush script with sumi ink, and then transfer the artwork digitally to create a custom business card for you, using the contact information you send us. We then send you a proof to approve, and once approved, we create your printing plates and start the letterpress printing!

A set of these cards makes a great holiday gift for that creative person in your life and recent or upcoming grads.

A digital option will also be available soon. Enjoy!

p.s. Happy Halloween! Happy November (what?!)! Be sure to visit again soon for photos and ordering information for our 2014 holiday cards!

How Denise Styled Her "Love Is" Corinthians Letterpress Art Print

We just love seeing how you display and style our letterpress art prints in your homes and offices – it is so nice to see where the prints end up (like little children going off into the world), and your décor and gallery walls are just so lovely!

The photos above come to us from Denise who ordered our "Love Is" Corinthians letterpress art print, and she placed it in a beautiful floating glass frame from Chapters/Indigo.  Although she created a gorgeous vignette, Denise is planning to give her print to her cousin who recently got engaged :) What a great gift idea! Congratulations to your cousin, Denise!

We would love to see how you've styled our prints in your home or office, and we'd love to feature your photos here to share with our readers. Please keep the photos coming by email or by tagging us on Instagram with @sunlitletterpress or #sunlitletterpress!
