Roger from Bleeding Gold Records asked us to a create a poster to celebrate the label and the bands that are currently on the roster. Of course we said yes and the result is a beautiful poster with a fairly literal interpretation of the label name. The poster will be available in the near future alongside a Bleeding Gold Records mix.

Lisa found two retro beer cans from the Baltimore area. She retraced them by hand to stunning results. Do I smell a series? -JM

Presenting our final poster for ALEXROSSI’s Je Te Prends 7″ Single. “Je Te Prends” translates to “I take you,” which is used in many different contexts throughout the song. The artwork was inspired by Lisa’s fond memories of the 1956 fantasy short French film, The Red Balloon.

New Year Card 2012

Posted: January 11th, 2012 | Author: admin | Filed under: 2012 - New Year Card, Final Prints | Tags: , , | 9 Comments »

We are very happy with how our 2012 New Year cards turned out. They have been mailed (mostly) and the response has been really positive. It nicely compliments last year’s universe theme and makes light of the Mayan impending doomsday predictions. Now the challenge is producing something even better next year!

Just printed out Year of the Dragon Posters today! The illustration for the Dragon was the most challenging of the series so far, but Lisa pushed through and the results are wonderful. We also landed on an awesome color scheme that we are really excited about. Pics of the final will be posted soon.

New Year Card 2012 Process

Posted: December 18th, 2011 | Author: admin | Filed under: 2012 - New Year Card, New Year Card | Tags: , , | No Comments »

We just finished printing our New Years cards last weekend and are looking forward to sending them out soon. The process went seemingly smooth until we realized, after making 40 prints of the 1st color, that we hadn’t properly secured our paper holder and therefore we couldn’t get the second color to align consistently and we had to start all over. It was a huge hassle and a good reminder for us to always spend that extra minute to make sure our setup is perfect. Oh well. All is well that ends well.

Here are some sneak peaks of the process. I don’t want to potentially reveal the design before people receive them, so I’m keeping these pics abstract. Keep an eye out for one in your mailbox!
