Illustrated Letters by Jared Andrew Schorr

Jared Andrew Schorr Illustrated Alphabet

I’m such a big fan of Jared Andrew Schorr’s papercut work, and these space-themed, illustrated letters that he created for the Illustrated Type show at Gallery Nucleus have absolutely made my day. Not only are they incredible pieces, but they bring together two of my favorite things: paper cutting and typography. Oh, how I love that adorable astronaut … and the pink, teal, navy, and yellow color palette, too!

Spring Patterned Cards from Smile Lifestyle

I first featured Smile Lifestyle’s collection of patterned letterpress cards back in February, and I know that many of us (myself included) got a big kick out of their unique combination of pattern and clever sentiments, so I’m very glad to be able to share that they recently released their new spring collection. The new cards are grouped into three themesIn the Kitchen, Wildlife, and Fresh Market and there are lots of great patterns and smile-inducing sentiments to be found!
