Ladies of Letterpress Conference!! & SALE

We are off to the Ladies of Letterpress Conference this week. (while we're gone check out our etsy shop SALE below) Can't wait, days of hanging out and talking shop with a bunch of ladies (& men). If you're headed that way, be sure to check out the Ladies Room panel and the Portfolio panel on Friday. Lots of tidbits for the lady printer and how portfolios can "expand communities".  And all of it in Asheville. I haven't been to Asheville in almost 15 years, but back then I wanted to pack up and move there. So I am super excited to go back.

Some sneak peeks of my print for the portfolio exchange and of the title page... Be sure to stop by Asheville Bookworks to see all the prints from the portfolio. Some superstars of the letterpress world, Amos Kennedy, Abigail Rorer, Harold Kyle, Baltimore Print Studios, and many more.

So while we're gone, we're offering 15% off in our etsy shop, on all items! Just use the code  ASHEVILLEBOUND . We'll ship once we get back after August 6th. Thanks for stopping by! Hope to see you at the conference!

We've been making lots of popsicles this summer to stay cool. Read my guest post about them at Larks & Japes, a super fun blog with entertaining tips, tidbits, kits & trips, with a hint of nostalgia, always a story.

Happy July!

Though there is a holiday tomorrow, we will be busy in the shop (but I'm hoping to take a little time to bake a blueberry pie...). We have a super large order going out by the end of the week. whew! exciting but busy.

The other day I received an email from one of our customers in Germany with photos. It's so much fun to actually see Blackbird cards in a shop in another country! I wish i could visit. I see things I'd like to buy...... It was great to meet Clemens at the Stationery Show. You can visit the Brevi Manu website here.

Happy 4th of July!
