Personal Stationery | Amy McCann

Personal stationery can make a great gift or treat for yourself or a loved one!  A little while back we printed this lovely set of stationery for long-time client, Amy McCann.  You may remember a set of business cards that we created for Amy and her partners at Local Food Marketplace a while back.  Amy wanted a set of matching stationery for her to use personally, and this is what we came up with! This stationery was printed on 100% cotton ecru paper in two ink colors: red and chocolate brown, and featured Amy’s name and Local Food Marketplace’s tomatoes at the top.  We paired them with matching, ecru envelopes that were unprinted.  Aren’t they pretty?!?  

If you’re interested in ordering a set of personal stationery for yourself or a loved one, please don’t hesitate to contact us!  We’d love to hear from you!

Custom Business Cards | Local Food Marketplace

Twin Ravens Press  has been working with the folks at Local Food Marketplace and Eugene Local Foods for more than a year now, but for some reason, I realized I had yet to write about them on our blog.  Living in Eugene, you meet a lot of people who are pretty serious about the food they eat, where it comes from, and how it’s produced, which, in my mind is fantastic!  Eugene has several fabulous restaurants that are using locally grown and raised products, and some that are using local products entirely.  At home, we try to eat as locally as we can, and we believe that eating locally isn’t only a vital step in supporting the local economy, but is also fundamental to building a more sustainable world.  Plus, the food that is produced in Lane County (not only fruits and veggies, but local meats, dairy, eggs, grains, rice, and other produce) is just down right tasty!  So, because of this, I was entirely happy when the founders of Local Food Marketplace and Eugene Local Foods, Amy, Doug and Mazzi, hired me to design their logo and branding and letterpress print their business cards.

We worked on several different images that were food, produce, and/or farm-related for these cards, but ultimately what we chose to run with were a lovely, stylized bunch of tomatoes.  To incorporate the tomatoes and make the logo unique, we used a single tomato as a replacement for the “o” in “Local”.  I thought it was pretty cute…  The business cards were printed in two ink colors: chocolate brown and a bright, vibrant red, on Crane Lettra 100% cotton ecru paper.

Local Food Marketplace now has partners in various parts of Oregon, Washington, California, North Carolina and Canada.  If you happen to be in Eugene and haven’t tried ordering produce from Eugene Local Foods before, click on the link above and make yourself an account!  The account is free and you can shop online for all of your produce needs on a weekly basis, pay with your credit or debit card, and pick it up at one of Eugene Local Foods’ drop-off sites at various locations around town.  I order from them almost weekly.  The site is awesome, and so is not having to go to the grocery store.  Try it!  Trust me – you won’t be disappointed!
