Making 2011 calendar sets for my Tinted Mint shop. Here's an experiment with a combination of laser cutting and engraving/etching on 0.6mm thick card board.
I find it is best to put together sample artwork that will test different size fonts, line weights, etc. and experiment with laser settings for the material I'll be using. Seeing these results really help in how I should refine artwork for the final run.
Another cool product I found at Renegade SF. These are porcelain jars made by making molds of vintage, glass canning jars, finished with a clear glaze inside. The designs change depending on new finds. I completely drooled over these, wanted a small collection of them. However, I was very good and held back. Claire of heydey design also makes beautiful ceramic jewelry.
Stumbled across the SUPERMODULE booth at Renegade San Francisco over the weekend. Absolutely love the simplicity of the graphics, made modern with beautiful use of color. Plus, I'm a sucker for letterpress. Hope to some day to a class on it. They print on on 100% reclaimed cotton paper and are tree-free which makes their products even more attractive. Hurray for being eco!
