Night Owl Paper Goods Summer 2015

The new summer releases from Night Owl Paper Goods are here, and there is much, much paper to crave among the colorful letterpress, wood, and eco-friendly flat printed greetings in the collection. New cards include holiday greetings, which I’m sure I’ll be mentioning more later this year, as well as birthday, thank you, encouragement, and thinking of you cards that feature bold botanicals and Night Owl’s trademark adorable illustrations. I’m also digging the eye-contrast black and white designs in the collection, which look fantastic on both paper and wood.

Below are some of my favorite cards from the summer release, and be sure to head on over to Night Owl Paper Goods to see all of the new paper goodies, including notebooks and calendars!

American Dream by Lindsay Letters

Downloadable Sweet Liberty Print by Lindsay Letters

American Dream by Lindsay Letters is filled with absolutely beautiful hand lettering, and it’s also a wonderful slice of modern day Americana, so it’s the perfect choice for Hand Lettered Love this week, which culminates in the 4th of July, the quintessential American holiday.

The collection includes hand lettered letterpress, foil pressed, downloadable, and canvas art prints that feature lyrics and quotes from patriotic songs and more. And I was immediately drawn in by the palette of rich reds, golds, and blues, which give the collection a wonderful, heirloom feel. These beautiful pieces would make great gifts for collectors of Americana and lovers of all things hand lettered. Head on over to Lindsay Letters to see the full collection.

Pretty cool, right?
