studio internship

We are currently hiring a studio intern!

Starting immediately I will need someone to come in to the studio 2–3 days a week, for at least 5 hours a day. Hours and time are flexible.

We are looking for a fellow paper lover to help out with packaging and folding inventory, packing and shipping orders, trimming paper and other production work. Inventory and other admin tasks could be involved.

Candidate must be: hard-working, a self-starter, very reliable, clean, meticulous attention to detail, very organized and have the ability to work on repetitive tasks. Bonus point for having a creative background. Letterpress or silkscreen printing experience is not required, but beneficial.

This is a part-time paid position in Chevy Chase, MD (within walking distance from the Bethesda metro). If interested I would be willing to train you on the press. This is a great opportunity for someone willing to work hard and grow with the company.

Please email me with a resume and a short paragraph on why you’d be a great fit for Fancy Seeing You Here to: hi {at} fancyseeingyouhere {dot} com

Look forward to hearing from you!

NSS 2012 booth setup

I’ve been preparing for the National Stationery Show since last fall and it finally happened earlier this week. All of the hard work and meltdowns were paid off by the most wonderfully awesome week, surrounded by stationery and paper lovers, yes it was heaven. I was lucky enough to share a booth with ten other members of the Ladies of Letterpress community. Having a small section in their booth, in comparison to having an entire booth to myself, made the preparation a lot easier. And when I say easier, I don’t mean easy, you still have to work your freakin butt off. But it was SO worth it; new friends, new shops and great press all of which are priceless. Here are a few shots from the booth setup.

Oh and did you see that some of my cards were featured on Design Sponge? I’m still jumping with joy over that.

And a lovely post from Oh So Beautiful Paper, which features pictures from all the Ladies of Letterpress booths.

The Washington Ballet’s Alice (in Wonderland)

Beautifully mysterious imagery for The Washington Ballet by Design Army. Those costumes and the styling are just fantastic.  I’m pretty upset that I missed this ballet.

Pearl’s first run

Things have been a bit quiet here on fancy seeing you here lately. The reason for this is prepping for the National Stationery Show which has me in such a tizzy. It seems like everything is coming together nicely though, even if my to do list is endless! This past weekend I printed with my press Pearl for the first time. It took a bit of troubleshooting to figure everything out, but by the end she was printing beautifully. I’m so excited to finally have her up and running. A special thanks goes out to Baltimore Print Studios and John Falstrom for the technical support while I was setting her up.

In case you are attending NSS I’ll be in booth #2274 with the Ladies of Letterpress.

inspector stamp

I spotted these Inspector Stamps by Mikey Burton on pinterest and think it’s a fresh take on the business card. “With this stamp, you are able to print your condensed snippet of info onto any substrate—a beer mat, someone else’s business card, a napkin, or even someone’s hand. After all, people are more likely to lose a business card in a drunken stupor, but less likely to lose their hand.” How handy is that? Order one for yourself from Cranky Pressman.

fashion friday: gorman

Loving the bright mix matched patterns from Gorman, seems like a great way to transition from winter to spring! via raneytown

Happy weekend everyone! Hope you have some wonderful plans. I’m looking forward to this Sunday for a few reasons. First, I’m playing soccer for the first time in over a year, it’s probably going to be a beautiful disaster but either way I’m pretty stoked. Secondly, it’s Super Bowl Sunday which means awesome commercials and PUPPY BOWL! For the record, the puppies seem to be extra extra adorable this year. As far as super bowl commercials I’ve only seen one so far, The Dog Strikes Back by Volkswagen which is pretty cute, mostly because it involves an adorable dog, (can you see the pattern here?) Needless to say it made me excited for all 2012 Super Bowl ads. Enjoy your weekend!

impossible is…

“Impossible is just a small word that is thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in a world they’ve been given to explore the power they have, to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It is an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It is a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing!”
-  Muhammad Ali

the fox with the golden fur

First of all, I had no idea what to call this post, but its such a lovely package design that I had to post it! I love all of the details in the piece; the paper cutting, the beautiful illustrations, the layering, the simple box design and the ornate page design. Such an imaginative piece! by Ultra Creative via French Paper Sample Room
