I’m a typography nut and a letterpress nut, so I was overcome with excitement when I saw these teal Type Collage letterpress coasters from Green Chair Press. I love the bold touches of color amongst the teal typography and think that these coasters would be the center of attention at any drinks-included gathering. Well, they would be if I were one of your guests. Plus, the ink is waterproof, so no worries about running. $12.00 for a set of 5.

I hereby declare today to be Lovely Yellow Letterpress Day! These beauties are from the wonderful Pressure Letterpress. I really dig the floral motif and, if your mom likes floral patterns, she may dig receiving this set of letterpress cards as a Mother’s Day gift. Hint, hint.

These 100% linen checkbook covers by Lotta Jansdotter are stylin’. So soft, so pretty, such an improvement over the vinyl / plastic / pleather-y checkbook covers with the solar calculators that stopped working a decade ago … but I wouldn’t know anything about those. No, not a thing. $18 each at Peek Keep.
Actually, when I saw these check book covers, I realized that it would be completely awesome if designers like Lotta Jansdotter, Jonathan Adler, Tord Boontje, and many of the fantastic stationery designers and illustrators working today would create series of customizeable checks. I’d love to have those types of choices when I’m picking out new checks!
