New Design: Child's Prayer Print

April 14, 2013
We designed this pretty typographic print for our niece's first communion.  It is now available for custom order through our Facebook page and on Etsy.    The prayer is from a collection of children's prayers and would be sweet to commemorate a birth, christening, baptism, communion, or other important milestone.  Details and colour palette are customizable. Our posters/prints use Kodak paper and are printed at a local photo lab (watermark removed, of course).   Digital file is also available...

April 10, 2013
I know it seems we've been missing in action.  Orders have slowed down a little and I've been busy being "Mom."  (It's my favourite job!) 

Chalkboard art is not new... but it seems to be making a resurgence.  I don't think I'll ever be truly talented enough to free hand like the pros, but I decided to open my design software, download some free fonts, and play. I came up with a faux chalkboard poster print design that I just have to share.   



Mother's Day is just around the corner and this Chal...
