RED Business Card

file-jan-02-11-43-02-amPrinting the Rogers Eckersley Design (RED) business cards was a really fun and engaging project for us. We did it all, between the layout of handset metal type, die-cutting the paper stock with a custom design, and printing. We printed on these with a Chandler & Price press from 1899!

RED is a graphic design and branding company based out of Atlanta, GA.

Last weekend Flannel Fest returned
to the High Noon Saloon for it’s 2016
shin-dig with a great line up of bands.
For this years poster we used a sweet
variety of wood and metal typefaces and
some freshly cast border pieces courtesy
of Skyline Type Foundry. Five tuscan faces!
Yowza!

Here’s a short video done by Shawn of
Jordan printing the second color…

The Shady Lady

The Shady Lady

3226 Commercial Ave. I purchased
this little blue house on Madison’s east side last
month to tear it down and build a new facility for
Sooper Dooper. We recently purchased 3 new
presses (one digital and two letterpresses) and
are just bursting out of our already cramped
space. This little blue house has some history
as it was the “Shady Lady Bath House” back in
the 1980s! Due to the questionable activity it
was shut down in 1989. The house has been
mostly empty since then and ready to come
down and make way for the Dooper!

The Avett Brothers

The Avett Brothers
Our buddy Victor from Nineteen Thirteen
asked us to do this poster for their gig
with The Avett Brothers and how could we
refuse? Huge fans of The Avett Brothers
over here. Have this giant “A” I found at a
flea market a couple years ago. Glad we finally
had an excuse to use it!

Natty Nation “Divine Spark”

DSC06182 I know, this one is a couple months old.
I’ve been behind on updating the blog, but I’m back
on it! This new release from Natty Nation is
awesome, and so is the packaging. Designed by
Aaron Konkol, this gatefold vinyl jacket and
a 4/4 one pocket wallet really make this one
stand out.
Bonus – Creeper Shawn hiding in the pic :)
