Just a quick post to say thank you to everyone that has posted a comment for our Limited Edition Letterpress Giveaway! A name will be drawn on Friday to determine the winner. Your comments have been so wonderful and have really reminded me of why I love doing what I do. It is so nice to know that there are people out there that still value the tradition of card-giving and who know how easily a written card or note can brighten someone's day. It's easy to get bogged down and think that no one appreciates cards anymore, but obviously some people still do, right? Your comments made me smile.

So yes, check back on Friday for my post announcing the winner!

This week is going to be a busy one. We have a press test to conduct for a print broker in Alberta, and some corporate and personal letterpress stationery to finish designing and printing. Add to this the fact that I am dog-sitting two extra pooches (in addition to my boxer, a.k.a. the letterpress intern) and it gets a bit overwhelming! A small pack of dogs in the studio makes getting work done a bit of a challenge. I wonder, am I the only one who has to apologize for barking dogs while having a teleconference with a client?

Above are some photos of some business card-sized showcards that we printed for client Lisa. Lisa will be giving these cards out at an upcoming photography show. We wish Lisa the best of luck with the show! The cards were printed in a darker teal ink on Crane 100% cotton Pearl Lettra stock.

I've had a few people contact me about whether we are participating in any upcoming art/fine craft shows for the holiday season. I've actually decided to skip out on shows this year - partly because we are busy with custom orders, and partly because I have been somewhat disappointed with the last few shows we've done. Shows that we have done well at in the past have changed their formats or locations, so we've had to reassess our attendance. I have been tossing around the idea of doing a trunk show on my own, but it would depend on a variety of factors that have yet to sort themselves out. We will still have holiday stationery available in our Etsy store soon though, so our cards will be available for purchase online.

Time to get back to work, happy letterpressing!
