Design and letterpress cards by us for @habitual_finance 🙏🏻🙏🏼🙏🏽🙏🏾🙏🏿
we@wanted something chunky and friendly so we designed and chose a font based on 1970 poster designs. the printing we did on a double thick fluorescent white so we could hit the logo side deep and get a nice salty finish on the yellow for the other side 🙏🏿🙏🏾🙏🏽🙏🏼🙏🏻
need some design or letterpress work done? we’d be happy to help, just dm or email us in our profile .

i also wrote wrote this blurb before the horrible fire today. like you, i’m heartbroken. as a craftsperson, i’m terribly sad. i’m still holding onto some hope that some bits have been saved from this tragic day. more on this later after we know more, more when i can wrap my head sound it all .

~new print~
🙌
limited edition of 100, “conversations with you” is now available in our shop and online! link in our profile 🍊 🍊🍊
being inspired by works by prolific bay area artist @tomkillion , i just came back from a trip up and down the coast, landing at sea ranch for a time. i did a few sketches there, which this is part of those. the “sea ranch series” will explore a bit of different styles than i normally make, but what will bind them is the ocean and all it’s calmness and brutality 🌊 🐋
using pigments from @caseformaking the ink is rich beyond what you can get out of a can. indigo blues and vagone green melt, the orange pops.
on top of all of this @small.works.sf made a special collaboration frame based on this piece! that’s what shown here. lap jointed barrel cut walnut like only andrew can make. special thanks to @speedball_art for suppling amazing linoleum to carve for the blocks and pigment base for mixing the inks!
🍊🌞🍊
stop by the shop or follow the link in our profile to check it out! .

Damn i’m excited! tomorrow at 10 am we’re releasing a new limited edition print!
🌊 ☀️ i’ve been working on these prints for a while and i finally had the time and the stars are right to drop it. i was really inspired by @tomkillion woodcuts after my pressman william brought in an art book by tom he bought a while ago. working with pigments @caseformaking uses for their watercolors i came up with something like i haven’t seen before
〰️➰➰〰️
on top of all that i was showing @small.works.sf the print in process and andrew was inspired by it he has made an exclusive frame! 🙌🤭
anyway! stay tuned, tomorrow at 10 am! ~

Let’s try this again....
😬
sacramental visions ii (sea ranch series) are now available, link in our profile (now with options to choose either one)
🌾🌼🌾
this diptych is a paired down print of the tranquil but often baroque sea of sea ranch in northern california. i got the idea for this series after a recent trip up there. a lot of walking along the coast in this seemingly barren place struck me. a community based on third bay tradition architecture that, from what i can tell maybe an experiment in building design than community. none the less, i was entranced by the landscape and beauty in which the architecture rested in it
🌾🍃🌿🌾
prints are 6”x10” and are sold as a diptych, edition of 75

Origin story🍊
one reason i started this print shop is that i wanted to help people fulfill their dreams of making a small business, help them grow, and in turn help the community that we live in and grow into a well designed, beautiful community that appreciates hand craft, well made objects.
in this sense, i feel like we’ve accomplished that but we have much more to do...
🤙
here we have a cream foil presses card on deep black paper. designed by @manual.labor for @doublehappiness.space
👉👈
