Marrakech + Mountains

This save the date for a weekend in Morocco was inspired by tile work, cool greens, blues and sweet oranges.  The updated chevron/mod mountain pattern would also make a great print for a table runner, along with low bowls of oranges and bougainvillea, set on a long wood table, at sunset.

Double Trouble!

Spring has sprung into overdrive and faded quickly into summer already, there is no beach for miles, thus we are longing to remain in the shop as much as possible.  To that end, we've launched a double trouble business card special.   We will match your business card order of 100 cards with an additional complimentary 100 cards. We can print up to 2 individual's cards, or treat yourself to a double batch, but the ink color must be the same for all. 

More details here.

We worked with Rose and Sara at SOL Marketing Concepts to print and die cut this sunny end of year gift for their clients.  The saturated orange referenced the "o" in the SOL logo, and the same color was used on the calendar side.  When the month is up, attach these to your view, be it wall or window, for everlasting pops of color and cheer.

Summer Vacation...

Our east coast summer vacation has been unexpectedly extended due to Hurricane Irene.  We've got family, beer, a propane grill and loads of board games.  Not to mention a luxurious extended break from the 150 degree days frying Austin.
