Fossa Studio Gift Card Promo

Here is a slick little promo piece I put together for the talented/charismatic Veronica Evans of Fossa Studio Photography. She even sealed the first bundle with a wax stamp.

The gift card is actually two different paper stocks duplexed together with glue, for a very thick and substantial card. All inks were printed with the offset press, with the exception of the black on the front of the gift card ($25), which was done with the letterpress to lend a unique, slightly distressed look to each card.

Enclosure: Classic Linen "Epic Black" 1/0 Silver ink, letterpress score for tri-fold

Card: French Paper "Blu-Raspberry" w/ white offset & black letterpress, duplexed with Classic Crest "Pewter" w/ 2-color white/black offset. Corners rounded.

FRONT: 3-color Letterpress
BACK: 3-color Offset

This piece was done in the Soviet propaganda style, emphasizing the hard work that goes into your coffee beans. The handcrafted look of the letterpress lent itself very well to the message of the piece, and they turned out great.

If you are in Spokane, you can probably find one of these whereever DOMA Coffee is sold; I'd recommend you get one while you can.

Matea Basta Wedding Invitations

The only thing more satisfying than spotting your work out in the wild is being able to participate in its use. I received this little puppy in the mail last week, and damned if they aren't the prettiest things I've put out all year. Killer invitations.

Well, let me just blow the dust off this thing. PHOOOOF

Dreyer Press has moved into the basement of the historic Wetzel Warehouse, in downtown Spokane. The building itself is very cool, and my space is in what used to be a walk-in cooler for cold storage.

After cleaning up the work area and getting it a little more set up, I will post pictures. In the meantime, here are some shots of the building itself.

This is the front of the building.

The back, where I generally enter.

The totally awesome view from the 2nd story balcony. I can watch the trains while I eat lunch (!)

My wheels.
