تفسير information pills serif;”>A couple of weeks ago we welcomed the great and the good into our workshop as part of the annual Cockpit Arts Summer Open studios. We were running demonstrations on our, page lovingly restored, cialis 40mg treadle platen press; showing people the basics of how it works, the principles of letterpress and then letting the brave ones step up to the plate and have a go. We were printing greyboard beer mats with a composed design from our usual collection and we thought it’d be nice to break out the super bright fluorescent orange for the event. Fun and games all round and no lost fingers either! Plus it was a chance to show off our new range of wedding stationery and personalised stationery sets.

There were our new generic Save The Date cards as well which can be used for anything from weddings to birthdays to picnics. Finally there were our two new limited edition prints; If It Is To Be and Even The Smallest Crank. Both were printed on our flatbed proofing press and were composed from our larger woodblock type.

Crafty Fox follow up and some new cards

Crafty Fox, Events & Competitions, London Design Festival, New Products

وسطاء الخيارات الثنائية القانونية generic serif;”>Last Sunday we had a nice afternoon in the arches of Kachette under the trains in Shoreditch taking part in the special edition of Crafty Fox for the London Design Festival. The space was very nice, and comes across far moodier and mysterious in the photos than it was in real life!

مصدر مفيد It was a good day, meeting plenty of LDF wanderers and fellow craftspeople, plus we also launched three new cards on the occasion; to go with the East End setting we have Oi Oi Saveloy

Plus we’ve done two more folding cards in a similar fashion to the Father’s Day card we did a few months back Exclamation & Bang Bang. They are both printed with some of our lovely woodblock and stupendously detailed brass picture blocks, plus they fold out to display on a shelf or mantelpiece. They also come with our new buff envelopes too.

If you missed us at Kachette, we’ll be at the next Crafty Fox gathering at the Bussey Building in Peckham on the 10th of October. 11Am – 5pm, FREE entry. 90 designer/makers taking part plus: live art in the courtyard, poodle parlour workshop by Garudio Studiage and the Lost Lanes, craftivist workshop with Sarah Corbett, Animal Alphabet book signing with Kay from Ketchup on Everything, origami with Katie Guild,  stitched portraits by In-Stitch You (Saturday only) and The Rhythm Parlour pop-up barber (Saturday only). Enjoy tunes from the Crafty Fox DJ’s and a full bar.

New Products and More Workshops

New Products, open studios, Stationery, Workshops

pilule serif;”>Well friends, diagnosis Open Studios has been and gone and we spent a lovely sunny weekend introducing a great number of people to the wonders of letterpress and Cockpit Arts as a whole. For any of you who were there, order you may have seen our new Wall Of Alphabetical Ephemera (its official name), in which we went through our collection of woodblock type and printed up a medley in a range of colours for all to peruse and purchase.

We also took the opportunity to release a number of new designs and products. Firstly there are our Letterpress Coasters; each design was hand-cut as a printing block to prevent damage to our vintage woodblock and lead type, but they were still printed, by hand as well, in our presses. The oil based ink we use as standard is waterproof and we tested an early sample by submerging it in the sink for a couple of days! The wood itself is 3mm plywood in a natural colour.

Next up are three new card designs, perfect for celebrations, congratulations, commiserations or just salutations. Each of the designs was composed with lead type and brass picture blocks from our collection along with some more hand-cut decorative elements for the background.

Sherlock Holmes Exhibition at the Museum of London

Commission Projects, New Products

Now that it has successfully launched, we are pleased to announce that we have been working on a commission with the Museum of London on a range of letterpress products for their shop as part of the new Sherlock Holmes exhibition.

The designs themselves were produced by A Plus B Studio, who did all the identity work for the exhibition as well as the custom typeface, whilst we were brought in to do the actual printing and apply our stationery & product design skills to the range.

Focusing on the writings of Arthur Conan Doyle, the designs were all heavily based on a selection of well known, and slightly less famous, quotes and styled in a way to evoke the bold, headlines of 19th century newspapers and billheads. The colour palette was based on the Booth’s poverty maps, and custom mixed to create a range of muted, Victorian scarlet and orange, mustard yellow, pea green, and cobalt blue.

We were particularly pleased with the blind deboss on the limited edition prints, tucked away in the bottom right corner opposite the edition number.

All the products are available in the Museum of London shop and via their online store, but if you’re in London any time between now and the 12th of April then pop by and check the exhibition out.
