Personalized stationery letterpress-printed while you wait, for just $34.00. Can you believe it? It’s true! Select Saturdays, Lunalux shoppers can go home with hot-off-the-press customized paper goods. Each Stationery Saturday, we print a unique design, utilizing a selection from our collection of antique lead and wood type. Some weeks we print from delicate monogram sorts, other times with weathered wood type. It might be stationery sheets, or folded cards or flat notes, and the styles vary from traditional to modern. The paper is cut, the press is ready to go, you just pick the letters and watch us work it Gutenberg-style. You’re welcome to look over our shoulder as we work, and we’ll de-mystify letterpress printing step-by-step. Or leave us to do the heavy lifting while you browse in our studio shoppe. We also offer complimentary coffee and a homemade cookies for guests to enjoy whilst shopping. Your personalized stationery is ready before you know it! If the wait is too long, or you have Places To Go, you can place your order and make plans to pick it up on a later date. Can’t make it to the studio on our letterpress-to-go days? No worries! Call us at 612-373-0526 to place your order over the phone.
February 1, 2014 - For the first Stationery Saturday of 2014, we’re offering folded notecards pre-printed with decorative stripe in variegated ink colors. The monarch-sized cards measure 3.75×7.25 inches when folded, we like it because it’s uncommon and feels kinda fancy. We’ve printed a series of intricate stripes on bright white card stock, in ink that fades from blue to light gray; and an off-white card printed with an ornate vintage wood border, in red and gray inks. Whichever design you choose, there are two personalization options: a name or brief phrase set in 14-point sans serif text or big bold wood-type initials. Cards can be paired with either matching white envelopes, or contrasting gray. The timing, it seems, in lovely for Valentine’s Day. Perhaps you’re courting a letter-writer, or you’re in love with a paper lover. What says “I give awesome and thoughtful gifts” than personalized stationery? Check out our facebook event for plenty of pictures of the designs.
