We’ve been hosting monthly Stationery Saturday events at our studio since June 2007. That’s nearly 7 years! Recently we’ve been personalizing stationery on the spot on some days that are NOT Saturday – mostly Sundays, and sometimes a Wednesday or a Friday too. Which makes the name “Stationery Saturday” feel a little weird. SO… that being said… the monthly personalized stationery events formerly known as Stationery Saturday will henceforth be called Letterpress To Go. Got that kids? Feel free to abbreviate to LP to Go or even #lptg. Despite the name change, the plan remains the same: personalized stationery letterpress-printed while you wait for just $34.
The 2015 schedule of LP to Go events begins this Saturday with a an homage to Pantone Color of the Year, Marsala. We’re starting with pearl white 100% cotton cards and stationery sheets. Our Heidelberg Windmill will be on the ready with rich red ink on the rollers, and guests can choose between two 30-point lead fonts: the clean sans serif Kabel, or the playful Keynote script. Watch while we set your type (a name? initials? a Valentine greeting?) and print your stationery before your very eyes. Finished stationery can be paired with matching white cotton or contrasting metallic marsala envelopes. LPTG sets start at $34 for 10 cards/sheets and envelopes, and also includes a fancy finishing touch: your choice of envelope liners or mailing labels (each printed in the same red ink, using vintage decorative borders). Can’t decide? For an extra $5 you can have both! Need more than 10 cards or stationery sheets? Additional pieces with the same imprint cost $3 per.
With Valentine’s Day just a week away, this lovely project is perfectly timed – consider this as a gift for your sweetheart. or create a set for yourself write V’day greetings to loved ones near and far. Visitors are encouraged to hang out in a craft studio in the back to line envelopes and write letters are your new stationery!
