Light Blue

A couple weeks ago all I wanted to do was print in this fabulous robin’s egg blue. Dandelions! Damask! Frames! Ornaments! (Yup, holiday greetings are on their way…) They all looked amazing in this color. This weekend, I finished them up (many got a pop of red!) and folded and packaged the one color designs while the rest dry. Enjoy!

Oh, and 622press goods made it into a bunch of treasuries today, so thanks to Barbara, Daphne, Emily and Lynsey.

New Year, New Collection

At long last, I’m happy to show you what I’ve been totally absorbed with the last couple of weeks: my first stationery collection of 2009! Below are just a few of the new designs (check out my etsy shop for the rest — and everything is available in any color!) and the press release I sent out with it.



Hot on the tails of its popular holiday line, 622 press has just released its first stationery collection of 2009. Showcasing the signature luxury for which 622 press is known, the collection includes influences from contemporary designer fashion, 17th- century culture and modern home décor, reflected in metallic inks, rich plum damask and feather motifs.

Madison, Wisconsin-based graphic designer Kristin Joiner successfully created and executed her first piece on her antique 1882 Pearl Old Style letterpress in June of 2008 and has been printing and artfully experimenting ever since. Each of the five new core designs is manifested in a variety of colorways and arrangements, and all offer the elegant handcrafted style of a small boutique press.

Hailed as “distinctive and unique . . . they are not merely paper, but also a piece of art for the mantle,” by Megan Larson of the Isthmus Daily Page, 622 press goods make the perfect addition to one’s inventory, whether for penning a personal note or for making a statement on an otherwise blasé wall.

622 press utilizes only the finest materials including hand-mixed oil-based inks, 100% recycled cotton letterpress paper and other quality art papers and creates every piece using earth-friendly processes.
