Red, White, and Blue Paper Goods

6.18.2013 Add Your Comment

In honor of the upcoming Independence Day holiday here in the U.S., I thought I’d put together a little collection of red, white, and blue paper goods. This classic color combo works so well on a spectrum of goodies, from the silly (the Arrested Development pencils are cracking me up!) to the sophisticated, and I hope that you’ll find something that catches your eye in this roundup:

Nautical Illustrated Cards | Suzy Ultman + Igloo Letterpress

Ahoy, mateys, and happy Monday to ye! This morning, I’m in a rather seafaring mood because I’m absolutely smitten with these awesome, nautical-themed illustrated cards from Suzy Ultman and Igloo Letterpress. The birthday, love, and thank you cards are so irresistibly fun that I think I’d have a hard time giving them away. You know what this means, right? I’ll just have to buy two of each and keep one!

El Calotipo

I first spotted El Calotipo, a Spanish printing studio and center for book art and design, on Flickr a couple of years back and, ever since, I anticipate seeing their gorgeous paper projects. The printers, artists, and designers working out of the El Calotipo studio create a little bit of everything, from amazing letterpress business cards to packaging and wedding invitations, and I’m always looking forward to seeing what’s new.

Here’s a little peek at some of their recent projects, and be sure to check out the El Calotipo site to see more of the fantastic work coming out of their studio.
