In conjunction with Pyramid’s 30′s Birthday Open House celebration on April 9, Pyramid Atlantic Art Center will be selling sets of letterpress birthday cards designed and printed by various members of our PA letterpress community. That’s my design above! All proceeds from the sales will go to fund Pyramid’s awesome programs and facilities! You can find pictures and links to some of the other cards here.
I printed some extra and will add those to my shop this weekend!
I participated in the Pyramid Atlantic Letterpress calendar once again this year with other members of the Pyramid Atlantic letterpress community. Each month was designed by a different artist. I chose April because it is my birth month and decided to focus on its birthstone, the diamond. It is a 2 color design using silver and magenta ink. There are still some calendars available for purchase. It’s $25 this year, which is a steal if you ask me! They are working on having it for sale on the Pyramid website but until then Update: Available for order on the website or you can purchase it at ArtSpring 821 Wayne Avenue, Silver Spring MD). All proceeds go to Pyramid Atlantic Art Center.
I’ve been dying to try this technique on a letterpress project and just haven’t gotten around to it. I think that edge painting makes such a dramatic statement. And it’s a great way to add a pop of color.
Ok, for the record, I am hear by saying that my next letterpress project I am trying this.
