Post Cake!

Postcake1
I’m pretty excited to announce a very fun little project that I’ve been working on with a good friend, and owner of Funhouse Productions, in Eugene, Drew Parrish!  Together we created the Post Cake!  Post Cake is a mailable, 3-dimensional postcard, shaped like a real piece of chocolate cake.  The frosting even smells like chocolate!  All you have to do is add stamps, and the post office will take care of the rest (no box or extraneous packaging material is required for mailing).  Each cake has a letterpress printed postcard on the back with space for your own personal message.

These cakes are available in our Etsy shop for $12.00/ea.  We’re also gladly accepting bulk, wholesale and custom orders!  Go check them out!

Weddings | Alicia & Tim

Alicia1
In the spirit of Throwback-Thursday, I’d like to show you one of my favorite wedding invitation suites from a couple of years ago that I just hadn’t gotten around to putting up on the blog, until now!  This suite was designed by New York City designer, Jihee Wu, for Melbourne, Australia couple, Alicia and Tim!  I love how modern and timeless this suite is and how it utilizes many of the lovely things that letterpress printing has to offer, in such an elegant and classic way!

Alicia & Tim’s invitation suite featured a 5.5″ square invitation, letterpress printed in a charcoal grey ink on 100% cotton Crane Lettra Pearl White Paper.  The suite also featured matching grey envelopes that were letterpress printed with black ink.  All of Alicia and Tim’s pieces incorporated a blind embossed monogram, which you can see at the top of the invite in the above photos.

Other pieces included a single color (gray) reply postcard and a smaller reception card with their wedding website info at the bottom.

We also printed a gorgeous set of simple, modern thank you cards, and matching menus and ceremony programs for the day of the wedding.  Alicia & Tim’s thank you cards and thank you card envelopes are pictured below!

Laser-Engraved Stainless Steel Flasks! Oh Boy!

Happy Monday, everyone!  If you’ve been paying any attention to our Facebook page lately, you may have noticed that I’ve been making a lot of very excited noises about a new project I’ve had in the works, that isn’t actually related to stationery, letterpress or paper goods.  On Friday afternoon, I posted these two photos on Facebook, promising an unveiling of something entirely new on Monday:

Flasks1

Well, it’s Monday, and I love keeping my promises.

A few months ago, I engraved a stainless steel whiskey flask for a friend:

Flask3

He and I were both so smitten with the result, that it got me thinking about how I could be using our laser cutter for multiple products, on a consistent basis, outside of the paper/stationery realm.  (Don’t worry, we’re still laser cutting lots and lots and lots of pretty paper goods as well!!)  So, I did some more research into flasks.  I mean, really, they’re kind of the perfect object.  Almost everyone I know either is someone or know’s someone who loves a good whiskey (or other adult beverage) every now and then.  Plus, the flask is a time-honored accessory, a great conversation starter, and a prime gift that fits almost any occasion.

Below are images of the very first batch of flasks to come out of our engraver!  All of these vary in theme, occasion, and design, but all are totally awesome!!

Flasks8

The flasks we are currently carrying are round, stainless steel,  and hold 5 oz. of your favorite beverage.  Custom engraving is available on all flasks, single or double-sided.  These run come with a flask funnel, and run $28 each, or less if ordering in bulk.  Please contact us for bulk pricing information, should you need more than one.

Custom metal engraving isn’t limited to stainless steel flasks!  We are happy to entertain projects involving engraving on other types of metals or other types of products.  Please contact us if you have an idea that you’d love to see us make happen!

Lastly, as I love keeping marketing streamlined and consistent, I also am pleased to announce that with this launch, you will also soon be seeing more information on the launch of Twin Ravens Press’ sister company, which will be specializing in our new, non-stationery line of products.  Please give a drum roll for Firehouse Lasercutting!  More information, a website, Facebook page and blog to follow.  Salut!!

Heya.
Bit random but I was just searching for images of whiskey flasks to photoshop the Fistful of Frags logo onto.
For use in a forum post as I think the game badly needs an actual whiskey flask in game.
What with all the “pass the whiskey” jokes going around. xD

Anyway, all I’m gonna say is it would be awesome if you guys made Fistful of Frags http://steamcommunity.com/app/265630/discussions/
logo flasks or offered it or something.
Its a free game mod and all.

Might be a good promotion or the like.

Figured it was worth a mention while I randomly thought about it.

Also some nice work in the gallery there. (also GDC flasks, very awesome :3)
