Archived entries for New Work
February is almost here and we’ve been putting the cast iron guillotine paper cutter to work for this month’s S&W product. Here’s a project-in-progress shot.
Perfect for your favorite typophile, our new Love Letters valentine postcard sets are available for purchase in the Felt & Wire Shop. We paired a wood heart with 12 point News Gothic from our type collection to create these candy heart inspired greetings. More images of the project can be seen in the shop.
Here’s the makeready notebook we put together to reward Andrew Shaw for his winning comments on our Feedback Loop Notebook. Yes, that is Balloon Extra Bold wood type in extra orange. The arrow on the cover pointing to the capital A for Andrew was completely serendipitous.
We bound an A2 envelope pocket in just for the fun of it. What’s inside the envelope? Write a winning comment next time and you’ll find out. Or maybe if you ask Andrew very nicely he’ll show you.
We installed David’s show, Hyperbole for Sale, last night at Alchemy Coffee (390 East 1700 South, SLC). It was nice to see the bold colors and type really stand out against the brick walls. See more images of the prints and process on Letterpress Daily. The show will be up for a month, so be sure to stop by and check it out. Prints will also be available for purchase here on Smart & Wiley in the upcoming weeks.
