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…xo

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…

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!

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.

There is nothing better about living in new england than the few short weeks that is Fall. In fact, it’s hard to not get a little over the top about it & perpetually arm yourself with a hot apple cider, a wool sweater & talk about nothing but the colors(!) constantly with everyone including strangers. But of course it’s always the shortest season & so pretty much every moment in the day where we’re not tethered to the presses, we’ve been outside watching the show…sometimes with apples & sometimes without. And since many of you might not get this front row seat to the autumnal fireworks of New England, I wanted to share a few of the sights that we’ve Instagrammed along the way. Oh & spoiler alert: if the visual awesomeness keeps up at this rate, there will most likely be more to follow…

We love maps. Also, we love a good party.
So, designing & printing this antique map themed invitation to a New England clambake pre-wedding party in Newport, Rhode Island has been like peanut butter & chocolate for us in the printshop…good clean cartography-nerd fun. And with a healthy dose of nautical whimsy to boot!
We printed these two sided on an off-white 220lb cotton paper in a warm chocolatey sepia ink, so they look quite old but are nice & beefy for any high seas map reading needs. Here are some process shots that we Instagram-ed for you en route…
