We’re at National Stationery Show 2011!

We’re exhibiting with Ladies of Letterpress at the National Stationery Show this year. It’s our first time at the show, and so far has been a terrific experience. The gals from the other 10 small letterpress shops who are in our booth have been wonderful to work with. We never would have made it here without them! Our booths are 2362, 2364, 2366, and 2368. If you’re at the show, come by and see us!

Christmas Cheers!

Looking for beautiful letterpress holiday cards? Come and shop at our Etsy Store! We just uploaded our holiday designs, including our newest holiday card, White Spruce, shown above. White Spruce features a special “rainbow roll” garland. Rainbow roll is a printing technique where half of the press is inked in one color and half in another color. The two colors mix and blend in the middle. Much care must be taken to keep the vibrancy of the colors at either end of the card, for as the press runs, the colors continue to mix. Back to the cards on the Etsy site, there are some great options there for Winter Solstice and Hanukah, as well as Christmas. Please visit us at http://www.etsy.com/shop/PaintedTongueStudios

To view them, the reader must unfold the rays, exploding the broadside. Bettina Pauly will be reading a translation from Abdul Satar, shown in the documentary: A Candle for the Shabandar Cafe, Baghdad, 2007, which corresponds with her broadside – a powerful piece that’s been two years in the making. It features testimony about the bombing in Arabic and English, with a hole carefully burned out of the center, between the two languages. Across the hole, the broadside is stitched back together. Both are very powerful pieces, and are on display at the Zen Center, […]
