Know God - Part 1 06/05/2016

First Free Rockford shot their new series' promo in our print shop. It gives you a glimpse into the inter-workings of our sweet, old print shop. We count it a privilege to have worked with them. Life is truly more when you know God!

We found inspiration in these old school trays for the Spring Art Scene!!! Old school, literally. 😂 SAVE THE DATE: April 15th & 16th! More details to come!!

02/03/2016

Friends! We have the opportunity to be a stop on the Spring Art Scene again this April. Our heart is not only to be a trade letterpress printer, but to be a local place that fosters creativity. One idea we had was to host hands-on art projects during the Art Scene. There would be age appropriate activities for the whole family. Plus, the Boone County Historical Museum will be hosting local, area artists a block away. So come see art and come make art. Is this something you and your families would be interested in? We would love to hear your thoughts!

For Christmas, my daughter asked for a Mary Poppins doll. She was ecstatic to unwrap this 1960's version Christmas morning. Proof that old things/processes are something rare and truly special. We look forward to serving all of your old world letterpress, foil, and die cutting needs in 2016! Merry New Year!!
