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.
December 20, 2014 – It’s become somewhat of a tradition that we end the year with a notebook project for Stationery Saturday. And this year we’re sticking with that tradition! This Saturday (Saturday only, not Sunday this week) we’ll be creating matchbook-style notebooks for our fantastic customers. The covers are made from richly covered card stock – black, eggplant, burgundy and royal blue. We’ll have silver ink on the Heidelberg Windmill, and gold ink on the Vandercook. That’s two – count them, TWO – presses in action! Notebook covers will be imprinted on demand, then assembled on our vintage binding machine. The finished notebooks measure approx. 3×5 inches, are full of perforated pages, and are so great for notes on the go. Tuck one in your purse, briefcase, or glovebox.A set of 5 notebooks with the same imprint will cost $34 (additional notebooks with the same imprint can be purchased for $6 each) 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.
