Happy Fridays: Lovely Letterpress Roundup!

After our popular giveaway last week I thought it might be fun to post some letterpress inspiration on the blog this week! I have compiled some examples of gorgeous letterpressed business cards and calling cards below. Perhaps it may even sway those who have been too timid to give letterpress a try in the past. Everyone needs at least one piece of letterpress in their life…believe me :)

After receiving a BFA in Graphic Design from the University of Georgia, she worked hard to establish a freelance career and officially launched her own company in 2011. Kristen is an award-winning designer, a celebrated creative for Minted.com, and has been working with NAPCP since it's inception in 2009.  She has a passion for fresh and beautiful designs with subtle feminine hints and a dash of whimsy.   Her passion for design is rivaled only by her passion for animals. She has been an avid animal rights supporter for many years and presently works with a local rescue organization fostering and rehabilitating cats. When she is not designing or sketching, you can find her crafting or in the garden!  She is also an entertainment junkie and watches entirely too many movies and television shows.

    The Story: Submitting Your Images for Competition: Tips from Competition Judge Michael Howard
    One of the hardest things you can do as a photographer is to edit your own work. When I say ‘edit’, that means to choose which images are successful and which images need to go away. It’s almost impossible to do this yourself. The reason for this is because we are too close to our […]
