New Critter Greeting Cards from Josh Searl!

I’m thrilled to announce that we now have three new, awesome greeting card designs available in our Etsy shop from our continued collaboration with Eugene artist and designer, Josh Searl.  We first began working with Josh just over a year ago and have had two of his adorable monster designs available since (you can find them here and here).  I love working with Josh, and think that his creatures are so funny and cute.  You can see the three new designs above: two different birds, and one adorable dinosaur.  All three of these designs were letterpress printed as 4bar size cards (measuring 3.5″x4.875″) and each comes with a coordinating envelope.  They are available as singles for $4.00 each.  If you would like to order more than one of any of the designs, or are interested in a mixed set, please email us.  Bulk discounts apply.

If you’d like to check out more of Josh’s artwork, you can on his DeviantArt site.  Thanks so much again Josh!  I just love your work!!

Adorable Monster Cards by Josh Searl

Right before Valentine’s Day this year I had the pleasure of collaborating with an awesome local artist, Josh Searl, on a couple of new greeting card designs!  If you’ve visited our Etsy store since then, you’ve already seen these, but I figured they needed a little shout out on our blog too.  Josh is a design student at the University of Oregon and has been drawing adorable critters and making other awesome artwork from a very young age.  I’m good friends with his aunt and uncle, and was super-excited when Josh agreed to collaborate with me on these cards.  We started with two designs, the little blue monster you see above and below, and the little green one with the pink balloon that you’ll see further down in this post.

Aren’t they just adorable?!?  Both designs are printed as 4bar size cards on 100% cotton Crane Lettra Pearl White paper and come with coordinating blue or chartreuse envelopes, depending on the design.  Josh and I are going to be working on additional designs in this series, so if you love his monsters as much as I do, check back!  There’s going to be more!  The two designs you see above are currently available online in our Etsy Store and at Gramberry.  You can also find them locally in Eugene at Modern on 5th and Pearl.

Thanks so much for working with me, Josh!  You’re awesome!

Baby Announcements | Lucas Hudson

This past fall, we worked with an awesome family in New York City on a very cute set of birth announcements for their second son, Lucas.  These announcements were simple and adorable, just like a brand new baby boy!  You can see the announcement we designed and printed above.  It’s an A2 size and was printed in two ink colors with matching white envelopes.

One of my favorite things about designing baby announcements are the cute fonts and colors!  Lucas’ announcements were printed in orange and brown and featured two different, adorable fonts and a hand-drawn baby kangaroo with a little orange hopping trail printed behind him.

Aren’t those just adorable?!?  I love ’em! Lucas’ mom, Kim, also had us design a matching set of flat thank you notes as well.  The thank you cards were also an A2 size and were printed on the same 100% cotton rag Holyoke paper as the announcements. They featured the cute kangaroo and Lucas’ full name in orange at the top.  We paired them with white envelopes with the Pillemer’s return address letterpress printed on the back flap.

Thanks so much for working with us Kim!  I just love how these turned out!
