The seasonal season…

December 9, 2013 § 1 Comment

It’s been beginning to look a lot like christmas pretty much since August around these inky parts, as we’ve been elf-busy cranking out oh-so-many pieces of holiday cheer in preparation for the very most seasonal of seasons. It’s been a non-stop flurry of welcoming old favorites back to the press for a fresh reprinting, designing new favorites and giving them a first trip through the presses, and collating, ribbon-ing, and packaging oodles of Calendars…for you and for yours. And now, BOOM: the seasonal season is finally here! And we’ve somehow managed to get all our work finished, to boot.

So, as I take a quick break from packing up wholesale and Etsy orders, I wanted to share with you some Calendar production shots (this year we made two!) that we Instagrammed along the way, along with some pictures of a few of the finished pretty paper pieces. Oh, and all of these goodies are for SALE in the Etsy shop, as well as in the local brick+mortar shops listed on the Spoon&Sailor Letterpress website…but feel free to get in touch here if you can’t find a way to get what you’re looking for! And a very happy seasonal season to you! xo

busy bee season…

July 23, 2013 § Leave a comment

Spring and early summer is our busiest time of the year. Oh, not just because we are scrambling to get our inky work done so we can get outside the studio and enjoy the warm New England weather, but because this my friends, is wedding season…which means non-stop crankin’ in the printshop! And this year did not disappoint in the busy bee department! We’ve been a hive of productivity as we’ve created suite after suite of custom designs for the loveliest of couples and feel super fortunate to have done so. So for you, our honeys, here’s a swarm of some of the pictures that we’ve been snappin’ and Instagrammin‘ as we work. And note the new wedding trend we’ve uncovered: octopi! Enjoy ‘em…xo1photophoto 1

rhody wed…

May 1, 2013 § Leave a comment

The other weekend we embarked on our very first wedding expo as we were lucky enough to be invited to design the logo for and then participate in the Ocean State’s very first indie wedding expo: Rhody Wed! The gorgeous day took place in Warren, Rhode Island at Simply Devine (the samples of which we tasted were quickly determined to be simply delicious) with about 25 independent vendors setting up pop-up shops, several bands playing on two separate stages and a whole bunch of food truck deliciousness parked outside. It all came together to be such a beautiful event! We loved getting to meet so many of you, but for those who couldn’t make it, here are a few photos taken by Caitlin Maloney Photography to paint a bit of a picture of the day…

saving dates, making maps, hibernating & ready for spring…

March 15, 2013 § Leave a comment

Where have we been all of February and half of March? Oh, busy doing three things: cranking out custom Save the Dates, making more and more maps, and patiently waiting out the end of a long and snowy New England winter. It’s the letterpress studio’s version of wintertime hibernating…but with pretty much zero lounging and sleeping involved! It now seems that Spring is finally starting to make an appearance and we could not be more pleased, so here are some Instagram pictures of some of what we’ve been busy with during our very snowy, very inky and very busy “hibernation”…enjoy!

valentine days…

January 26, 2013 § Leave a comment

Valentine’s day is a favorite of ours as, at least around these parts, it’s chock full of both animals and adorableness. In equal parts of each, please. During the past few weeks ink, animals {in paper form only} and paper have been flying through the presses pretty much non-stop…it’s been lovely and extra cute mess!

So for you, our valentines, here’s some pictures of the pretty pretty process. And as we hate to tease, and especially would hate to tease you, all are now well-stocked in the Spoon&Sailor Etsy shop for your own valentines {or feel free to go local and check the stores that carry our goods in your own neighborhood}. Oh and, happy Valentine’s Day! xo

December flew by in a flash…or rather a very busy blur of both fun & productivity. Our December days were chock full of holiday card printing & shipping, calendar assembly, cooking & eating the best treats, visiting with friends & family, working on new wedding designs, & lots of quality cat time. It has been a busy Winter so far and we are so pleased to welcome 2013 & all of the additional days of “Winter busy” that it will bring! Here’s a bit of our favorite December moments that we captured on Instagram…or just a bit of us lately.
