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

cranking out a calendar…

November 21, 2012 § Leave a comment

So we finally took the plunge made ourselves {& you} a limited edition 2013 calendar! This turned out to be an even bigger project than we had expected what with fourteen plates for fourteen pages, all of them in one of fourteen different hand-mixed ink colors & most of the pages with a bleed trim…quite a flurry of activity to squeeze in between winter wedding suites & spring save the dates! But, I’m pleased to say that we 100% got ‘er done & are oh-so-very excited about the results.

It’s now all bound & packaged up, even making it over to Craftland in plenty of time for their big bash, is off to a few other retail locations in the next week & is of course well-stocked in our Etsy shop…where it’s already been selling like hotcakes which has made our inky kitchen staff quite pleased. So like any proud new parent, we’d like to show off pictures of our pretty new baby, so here are some process shots that we Instagram-ed during production & you can see the final product right here! Enjoy ’em…xo

 

a map party…

October 5, 2012 § Leave a comment

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…
