Guillotine is a new line of street wear styles in a collaboration between designers Arrias Dawkins and Sam Smalls, these snapshots are only a peek at what is coming so check back for more great stuff from this collaboration.
The red and black backs you see here are actually suede, laminated onto letterpress printed paper. The printing and edging feature a metallic gold with deep emboss, raising the black paper in the artwork. These are probably my new favorite cards, design from Sam Smalls.
Two color silkscreen tank tops here, with more designs on the way.
This was a real trick taking a five color design and running it in three, a feat that saved the client some dough, I should add. Printed on a heavy weight cotton stock, you’ll notice the impression before the card is in your hands!
This was a process shot to illustrate how the colors were laid over one another, along with the basic layout of the name and contact info. Again, the impression is featured prominently in the raised type in the red layer.
Letterpress printed on a thinner cover stock, the black is printed on white to raise the type and cars above the surface of the paper.
Sadly, my friend’s dad passed away last fall but in producing these letterpress programs for his memorial, we got to capture a part of his story adapting an old photo into a lovely edition of drawings. The illustration work was done here, along with the printing on a soft cotton paper.
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!
Many of you have likely been enjoying Peregrine’s unique designs around town, and here’s your opportunity to give a limited edition letterpress card this valentine’s season. Available now for $10 at Birdies or here at the shop, email LindquistPrints@gmail.com to get yours!
Letterpress and silkscreen printed, these tickets for the Fahrenheit Valentine Ball are on sale now at Birdies on 18th st., hope you can make it as these parties have always been a fun way to celebrate the holiday!
