Eggpress stationery

I’m a bit of a card snob ie I’d never buy one from a supermarket, Clinton Cards or Hallmark.

I tend to favour the more individual designs you can find in Paper Tiger or the Red Door Gallery.

If this sounds pretentious then fair enough, but I don’t see the point in giving one unless it’s right for the intended person.

Eggpress stationery has long been a favourite of mine. I love the texture of the paper and the slightly grainy, faded imagery.

Above is a thank you card I bought for a friend.

Lovely Letterpress Work

To say I’m extremely excited about starting my evening class in Printmaking Techniques at Edinburgh College of Art next month is a bit of an understatement. I can’t wait!

I’m not sure whether I’ll get to have a go at letterpressing, but I can only hope as it’s always looks amazing – so simple but classy when done right.

Beast pieces, which is run by Studio On Fire, devotes itself to showcasing some beautiful letterpress work.

My favourite piece is the poster for a gallery show called the Poster Offensive. It’s so intricate and delicate (see above).
