New Spring Note Cards
We just released five springy note cards to delight your senses! They are all letterpress printed on our old Heidelberg printing press, here in Tacoma, Washington!
"When Poppies Bloom"
a new triptych blockprint
And why not take a journey to California, the land of sunshine, with our new triptych blockprint. Our new triptych "When Poppies Bloom" is printed from 10 linoleum blocks and polymer blocks. To view this print, please go to our Blockprint section. Ready for immediate shipment.
"Happy Sheep Year!"
Having been born in the year of the sheep according to the Chinese zodiac, I'm quite excited about the year 2015! To celebrate this auspicious year, I made a "kiri-e" art (paper cut-out) and made blocks from the image to create our letterpress-printed prints. All of the eight colors are printed on our antique printing press. We handmaid and carefully apply each colored ink by hand.
All of our note cards and limited-edition prints are made and packaged at our studio in Tacoma, Washington. If you'd like to see the old letterpress printing presses at work, please come by our studio/showroom at 2515B South Tacoma Way, Tacoma WA 98409. We're at the studio between 9 and 4 pm (M-F) or open by appointment.
