Holiday Season 2014

This year, I did what I usually plan, but fail, to do, which is get ready for the holiday season a full two months in advance.  First, I started working on my new holiday card offerings and then I attempted to take some photos that would do them some justice! 

Happy Holidays from San Francisco
Merry and Bright
I also signed up in advance for a pop up show at Rickshaw Bagworks which is taking place this Saturday, November 15.  They do the pop ups once a month and I figured it's a show that close to the holidays but not so late that people would have already sent out their holiday cards.  I'll be at Rickshaw Bagworks at 904 22nd St San Francisco, CA from 11am-3pm this Saturday, so stop by!

I ordered a free Etsy reader, so that I can accept non cash payments at the show.  It will also come in handy if I run out of any inventory and need to take orders that I can ship to customers once I've finished printing items just for them.  I haven't tried it out yet, but I'm excited!

I've also been working on some pretty gold foil stickers/labels that I'll be showing for the first time at the pop up show.  With my handy Silhouette Cameo, I can cut stickers into any shape I want - such as Christmas trees, gingerbread men, whales, airplanes, clouds.  I'll get photographs of those take slowly thereafter, but gold may be a little challenging to photograph.  This is an example of the ribbon label packaging that I designed, printed and then cut on the Silhouette Cameo for my Love from San Francisco labels.

I love how this geometric pastel triangle pattern pairs so well with this western inspired font.  Also available in more delicate fonts and different messages on our Etsy site.

Sending Love from SF, NYC, LA or San Diego

It started with NYC and then SF because I've had great memories in both places....but then it spread to LA and San Diego where we have family.  These four cities kick off our Sending Love label series.  We'll add more cities later and of course I'm happy to work with you on custom city labels!

Coming Soon - Stickers!

I've been working on a new idea recently.  I have always loved stickers, and my plan was to convert some of my Chunky Pineapple designs to stickers.  They can be used as envelope seals or just for fun anywhere else.  Below is a sneak peek at a couple designs which should be posted in our etsy shop soon. 
Bright and cheerful pineapples (1.5" circles)

Our ever popular rainbow bicycles - available on white or kraft 1.5" circle stickers.  Perfect to go with a rainbow notecard pack!

I've also been playing around with watercolors.  I think this would look lovely spread out over stickers.  No two will be alike!

Stay tuned though, because there will be a lot more coming down the pipeline.  I'm so excited!

Custom Birthday Cards - Batter Bakery

The end of August was super busy as we partnered up with Batter Bakery to print our birthday designs using their logo colors (red, light teal and chocolate brown).  It was super fun and the cards turned out lovely.  These cards are only available at the three Battery Bakery locations here in San Francisco.

As part of their order, we also printed our geometric thank you cards in a new colorway - metallic turquoise with navy text.  When the cards were completed, I really preferred how the turquoise shimmers compared to the gold used for the original gold/navy colorway, so we now only offer this new colorway in our etsy shop
This photo really doesn't do metallic turquoise justice!
