Yeah! The day is finally here! We've had a whole collection of new equipment ready for delivery since just after Thanksgiving but given the MN weather, delivery has been delayed week after week. Finally, the roads are clear enough to transport a few tons of iron from one shop to another. We've got a new Kluge, a new cutter, an extra 8ft work top, and half horse motor for the Damon & Peets and some much needed dust bags for some of the equipment. With all the new stuff coming in, we'll be posting a few old items for sale in the next week. Check the MN Craigslist and Briarpress for listings.
Our new wedding invite showcases a whimsical, light design inspired by the “river town”, Baton Rouge. Romantic, elegant, and composed, our design is a reference to the Victorian-style architecture so well known in Baton Rouge. The script in the center of the letterpress design imitates the illustrated borders with its varying line width and calligraphic properties. Classical and soft, perfect for any wedding.
Say hello to our newest team member - Jenny Da. Jenny comes to us from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. She's an MCAD Sophomore with a great eye for design and composition. She's working closely with us to aid in the creation of some really new and exciting invitation designs which we will be unveiling in the next few weeks or so. Some of the pieces she's creating include an amazing Minneapolis skyline featuring a flare of Marimekko style as well as some fun scroll work pieces. Check back soon for more images and samples as we update our letterpress blog.xo - DJL
Spring is coming! Inquiries are starting to ramp up as the snow melts. Dick and Jane Letterpress has been busy working through the new year and into the wedding season. We've produced a number of birth announcements and location wedding invitations. Save-the dates have also been quite popular in the last months. We've been so busy in fact that we have somewhat neglected our letterpress blog maintenance. Many apologies for that. We are getting back to the task of regularly updating things so be sure to check back often for new designs and affordable letterpress wedding invitations. xo - DJL
