Twin Ravens Press is very excited to have been invited by Passionflower Design to do a letterpress demo in their store in downtown Eugene tonight for the First Friday Artwalk. Come out, enjoy the Artwalk, pick up a Christmas card and a gift, or two, and visit me while I demonstrate printing on a tabletop 6″x10″ Kelsey Letterpress! I’ll be printing the holiday tags pictured above, and will also have Christmas cards and tags available for purchase. If you’ve ever wanted to check out what I do in person, tonight would be a great opportunity for it! I’ll be there demo-ing from 5 pm – 8 pm. Passionflower Design is located at 128 E. Broadway (between Pearl St. & Oak St.) in Eugene, Oregon.
Earlier this year I had the pleasure of working with a lovely couple who I know through the dance community who are getting married in Portland, Oregon next summer. Matthew and Lea wanted a simple, but elegant, letterpress save-the-date card to announce their upcoming nuptials incorporating some kind of rose motif and art deco styling. I think we nailed it.
The save-the-dates you see below are 4″x6″ and were printed on an Antique White 100% cotton paper with chocolate brown ink. They are double-sided and feature the save-the-date information and rose motif on the front, and a simple backside for the recipient’s address on the reverse. We were able to incorporate a vintage, art deco border design and 1920s-style fonts into the design to make it really look as though it were right out of that era! They really turned out beautifully!

Christmas is coming up soon and a lot of our customers are placing their orders for holiday cards! Check out these awesome photo holiday cards we created for The Boege family in Chicago in 2012. These cards are folded and feature letterpress printing on the front and inside in two ink colors. A circular window was die-cut into the front to reveal a tipped-in photograph on the inside. So cute!!
Did you know that the time of year between Thanksgiving and Valentine’s Day is the most common time of year for couples to get engaged? With that in mind, we know that a lot of you will be interested in Save-the-Date cards in the coming months! Check out these beautiful and playful save-the-dates which also feature photographs. The first one has a photo strip incorporated into the design!
The save the date below features classic styling, letterpress printing in one ink color, and a black & white photo of the lovebirds tipped on to the front. This is another great way to incorporate your photo into a save-the-date!
We created the above postcard earlier this summer for the newlyweds to use as a thank you card after their wedding! Their wedding photo was digitally printed on linen paper and then was custom duplexed to a 100% cotton backing sheet that we then letterpress printed with a postcard design! This is a wonderful, classy way to incorporate a digitally printed photo into a letterpress printed piece!
Last, but not least, don’t forget baby announcements! Twin Ravens Press had the joy of printing the announcements below for one of my best friends, shortly after the birth of her first son! The letterpress printing was done in two inks and one foil color and then a real, black & white photo of Miles was tipped on to the left of the text! Adorable.
