Los Angeles Printer's Fair This Saturday!

OK so this is the 3rd time Joie Studio will be participating in the Los Angeles Printers Fair.  We always have a lot of fun at this event, especially since we not only sell a sampling of our letterpress papergoods, we also bring a bunch of letterpress supplies and have sort of a mini garage sale on envelopes, paper, and other doodads and knick-knacks.  So come on out to Carson on Saturday! 

Say hi!  Oh, and I'll have a little gift item for you if you show me that you follow Joie Studio on Twitter or Facebook.  So easy-peasy.  Come, "like" or "follow" Joie Studio, and get a little love from us!

Sneak Peek: New Special Edition Cards

I so loved doing the split fountain the other day on the calendar cover that I decided to make them into cards.  You likey?  I likey!  Split fountain for the back step after they dry to is to letterpress the greeting onto it.  I'm chugging along printing a bunch of new card designs.  More soon!

Mad Hatter Kind of Wedding

I had the pleasure of working with the ever wonderful Fresh Events Company on Robbi & Charles' day-of-wedding stationery, which included placecards, table cards, programs, and menus.  I almost never see the end result.  Usually the last that I see of the cards, they look something like this, spread about a work table in the studio, waiting to be packed up for delivery:

So imagine my delight when I saw this picture on Fresh Events Company's Facebook page:

Can you spot the table cards and one or two menus?

Here is a closeup of the programs, gorgeously letterpress printed if I do say so myself:
Sorry for the cell phone pictures!  One of these days I'll lug out the SLR and take better pictures!

Congratulations to Robbi & Charles!  I'm hoping that the photographer took some awesome pictures of the wedding day stationery so we can see more details!

Sneak Peek: 2013 Calendar on Press

 Joie Studio's first ever split fountain!!!

So we were printing our 2013 letterpress desk calendar and I thought the chevron pattern would look great as a split fountain.  I had fluorescent orange on the press and decided add hot pink.  I worked fast and got the whole run in with this split fountain, which I'm really happy about.  The result on the press rather reminds me of a tequila sunrise...ah delicious!  I love it so much I'm probably going to do a split fountain for two different greeting cards.  Anyhow, here's a little sneak peek of our "Bright 2013" calendar!  It'll be ready in time for the LA Printer's Fair!

Hello Beautiful...

Sorry I've been away for so long! I don't know if you knew, but I was pregnant, had another sweet baby boy, and am now just returning to the wonderful world of letterpress. It's been on back-burner to share a wonderful photo shoot we had with Kristin Carlson before baby #2. I think my Joie Boy ("I'm not a baby anymore, Mommy!" he likes to say now) is one of the cutest things in this beautiful world, so how can I not be completely in love with Kristin's work when she takes a picture like this one:
Or like the ones on her blog. She was kind enough to share with me some photos she took of Joie Studio's work, too!
Kristin, I owe you majorly for capturing my family and my work so beautifully!
