Weekly Wrap Up + New from Satsuma Press

I’m always excited to see what Lynn at Satsuma Press is making. Her sweet and delicate letterpress is an exercise in elegant restraint. I love letterpress best when it’s used sparingly, and her latest designs do just that. Her new 2013 calendar (a seven-color beauty) and card series are dainty and have little foxes, trees and garlands that are perfect for the upcoming holiday season. I wouldn’t mind getting a cute fox card in the mail; it’s a great spin on traditional holiday imagery. You can check out and shop Satsuma’s new designs right here, and you can check them out in person at Makeshift in San Francisco this December! Lynn is teaming up with Teresa from Stone & Honey for a great holiday pop-up shop called Kindred. It’s definitely going to be one to check out.

I’m heading out for the weekend, and I hope you all have a great break! See you back here on Monday. xo, grace

Below is a summary of this week’s highlights:

  1. How beautiful. I love letterpress so much, and how you can feel the actual work on that piece of paper. Lovely items here – especially love those foxes.

  2. Huge fan of Lynn’s work over at the LAB. Your description is so on point!
