Hi Maura!!!

I am so excited to share these. It took a lot of blood, sweat, and tears to get here, but guys, I AM PRINTING!!!! I know, I was already printing before, but that was just practice. Now I'm printing with confidence and knowledge and it is finally looking friggin' GOOD. Not perfect, but good enough that I'll actually share it here...

Not too shabby for one working roller, huh? Roller two has already been fitted with smaller trucks (the trucks that came with it were too large so it wasn't hitting the plate), and rollers three and four just made the long journey to Cali and back for some new rubber, so starting next week I will be printing like a ROCKSTAR.

I designed and printed these for my longtime friend and (sole) loyal reader Sarah who welcomed her little girl Maura into the world this September. I've always loved hand drawing text and since Sarah wanted to keep things simple I thought it would be a good time to indulge in my obsession. The frame around the photo is a nod to Sarah and Paul's (and my) history at a certain unnamed home decor company ;)

  4. Found this via Pewter and Sage as well. These announcements are beautiful!

    I'm a designer in MA wondering if you print other people's designs or only your own? I don't see an email address on your blog so if you have some time, shoot me an email! I'd love to get in touch about some future printing.
