New Etsy Schtuff...

© 2008 Sunlit Letterpress

Above are a few photos of some new letterpress stationery now available in the Sunlit Letterpress Etsy store.

This week we are printing a few custom business card orders (photos to follow) and preparing to print an upcoming order with gold ink. We aren't asked to print with metallic inks too often, but we certainly can use them, so it will be nice to get the cans of ink out and use them again.

This week I am also becoming painfully aware that the holiday season is just around the corner (when Costco starts carrying the Christmas-related paraphernalia, I know it's time). I really need to get moving on the holiday designs.

This year I have been toying with the idea of having a trunk show at my studio or perhaps other location, instead of doing yet another fine art/craft show. I'm not sure what that would mean or look like, but it might be a great way to sell our stationery without the limitations or irritations that come with participating in another art fair. It's not that I don't like doing the art/fine craft shows - don't get me wrong, I do (and I LOVE meeting blog readers at the shows!) I guess it's just that I'm finding that there are less and less fairs/markets that cater to our specific target market.

So, if I were to set up a Vancouver-based trunk show before the holidays - would you come?

Happy letterpressing!


  1. If the trunk show was in your studio, I'd definitely try to come, since I'd be curious as to what it looks like. But it would be difficult for me, since I take transit, and you're out in Surrey.

    The benefit of the art/craft shows is they're usually held somewhere easily accessible for people who don't have a car.

  2. LOVE the grass and blind impressions!
    Also, we'd love to come to a trunk show, but are a bit far away...
    However, I can totally relate to your difficulty in finding funky craft fairs...
    Can't wait to hear what you decide!
