Printing with Birdies

The fine folks at Birdies have been keeping the presses humming recently, as they gear up for the Valentine’s Day holiday.  Artist Peregrine Honig has come up with some great designs for the Fahrenheit Valentine Ball, shown in print below, in addition to a limited edition run of letterpress Valentines on sale now at Lindquist Press (2016 Baltimore) and Birdies Panties (116 W 18th St) here in the Crossroads Art District, KCMO.

A short run, but oh so much fun!  The gold shown here is extra thick for a luster my camera can't quite match.  These are to be trimmed out and hung around town, so keep your eyes peeled if you're looking to grab one!

Some updates from around the shop!

The gallery space is looking much better than we saw in the last post, shown here with some photography work from Forester Michael and Erica Peterson. The space changes a bit for every artist, but the addition of track lighting and rails for hanging work has really helped. Look forward to a new season of artists on display starting in March for first Friday.

Much has changed, including this new sample display area.  Included are wedding and business stationery, posters and more.

Much has changed since moving into the new space, and I'll be eager to get those updates online in short order.  In coming weeks, you'll see new projects and events that made 2013 a very exciting year.

New branding work, shown here on press for silkscreen printing.

New Crossroads Location!

Day one.

Shop Detail

The place has certainly come a long way since moving in last month, with much re purposing and cleaning the shop has maintained a certain gritty charm, while becoming much more comfortable and warm.  In the storefront, pots are available for sale from Kate Shroeder, and a re-purposed brick piece from The Jarboe Initiative. These and other art products will be available in the shop, with more features coming soon.
