I spent the Labor Day holiday weekend in Boulder, CO where my girlfriend and I hit several of the local hiking trails. Can’t seem to get enough Colorado. What an amazing place.
Sharing some pics from a recent motorbike trip to the Telluride area of Colorado. A mix of Triumph, KTM, BMW and Honda dual-sport bikes carried our group of seven over 2,500 paved miles and then dozens more on dirt, mud and rock-filled mountain trails. Too much fun with a great group of guys. Looking forward to our next adventure.
This Made by Hand poster is the first print in a series of four screen printed posters celebrating hand crafted art and design. Each print in this limited edition of 50 is signed and numbered. You can find specs and purchase one in my shop.
Sharing a few pics from a recent trip to the Seattle. I wasn’t there long but managed to squeeze in some time to visit Olympic National Park. I can’t possibly put into words just how beautiful it is and am determined to go back some day soon to explore more of the area.
Here’s a look at the finished cards. I couldn’t be more pleased! Printed on Lettra 220# double thick cover. The thickness of this super toothy paper makes my heart happy. Truly superb printing by Genghis Kern Letterpress.
I’m having some letterpress business cards printed at Genghis Kern Letterpress & Design in Denver, CO. The pic below shows a blind deboss test print of my monogram. The depth of the deboss in the super thick 220C Lettra is really fantastic. More pics to come.
I'm beyond ecstatic that I’m finally taking an old design vision and turning it into reality. Can’t wait to share, so stay tuned.
