We are super excited about our new FROM THE DESK OF... WORKSHOP. Students will have the opportunity to print 150 one-color personal letterpress business cards, 50 folded (A1 size) notecards on Crane Lettra Pearl White 110#C and line 50 envelopes from French Paper; we'll have various colors of envelopes for students to choose from.* Students can pick from three templated design options that we provide or student can produce their own design.  Once you've signed up for the workshop, we will send you an email within 24 hours for you to complete so that we can fill in the relevant personal information to the design that you chose. Please send artwork and forms back immediately, we send off for polymer plates, which you can keep and reuse, and want to make sure that they are delivered to us in time for the workshop. THIS WORKSHOP IS VERY DATE SENSITIVE to make sure that we get your plates in time for the workshop. Please take notes of the dates in the individual workshops.

Students can pick from these design options:

- Option A - Traditional
- Option B - Polka Dots
- Option C - Southwest
- Option D - Design Your Own 
- Option E - Custom Design (additional $125 per hour design fee)

See the examples below. Because of the complexity and time sensitive nature of this workshop, please feel free to email us at or come by to either shops if you have any questions.

Option A. Students will mix their own inks from the color they choose..

Option B. We will be printing on the either the Challenge or the Vandercook...

Option C. Students keep the polymer plate with their design.

Option D. All Artwork MUST be submitted and approved by us by specified date. And MUST be sent in Adobe Illustrator EPS file with vector artwork only and outlined type. There is more information on the workshop page.

A late charge of $50 for expedited shipping for the polymer platewill apply if artwork is submit after the deadline states . We cannot guarantee that we will receive your polymer plate on time if you do not submit your artwork and information prior to the deadline. Because of the materials and preparation required, these workshops are non-refundable and non-transferrable, this also applies in cases where artwork is submitted past the deadline.



Fourth Anniversary Soul Train Party!!!!


To celebrate, we're throwing a huge Soul Train themed party at the Henderson Shop. We're gonna come dressed up, but absolutely no pressure (but, if you need wardrobe inspiration, click here!), just come out, have a drink, and hang with us as we celebrate four years. As usual, we'll have all sorts of yummy food and drinks. Our good friend, DJ Cj DeMarx will be providing the grooves. The three of us feel so amazingly lucky and this is such a happy time for us, we cannot wait to celebrate this milestone together. 

With this in mind and in light of the recent typhoon that hit Tacloban in the Philippines, we will be donating 10% off all our sales that night to the Red Cross Disaster Relief. Also, you can also directly donate to the Red Cross on their fundraising page.
