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.
October 4 & 5, 2014 – The changing seasons inspired the rich color palette for this weekend’s letterpress-to-go project. Three designs have been prepared for your consideration: orange rococo, gold deco, and aubergine floral. Each has been lettepress-printed on soft white wove-finish card stock, and will be personalized with your choice of Bernhard Modern or Caslon Italic 12-point lettering in dark brown. These 5-by-7-inch flats will be paired with A7 envelopes (we have many colors to choose from), then packaged with bakers’ twine and a letterpress-printed tag. Check out our facebook event for more pictures of the designs.
The nitty gritty details: Stationery Saturdays run from 11:00a.m. to 6:00p.m. on select dates. During the summer, we’re also open Sundays noon to three, so you can come in that day too. Guests are served on a first-come first-served basis, and supplies are limited. The cost is $34.00 for a set of 10 customized cards, with blank envelopes. Additional pieces with the same imprint are $3.00 each.
Keep an eye on the Lunalux facebook page; we post the first glimpse of upcoming design offerings on that page, and we also create event listings for all Stationery Saturdays so you can RSVP and spread the word to all your paper-loving pals.
