We've had a very busy summer full of craft shows, pop-up shops and a lot of running around. It's been exciting, exhausting and edifying! Now that we've made it through, we're really enjoying taking the time to get back into the studio and work on some new projects.
We've just listed some new cards that we launched at the Summer edition of the Eastside Handmade pop-up shop in Highland Park last weekend. We added some new neighborhoods to our sets of City Greetings cards. We now offer Echo Park, Highland Park, Culver City, Santa Monica and Silver Lake as well as Los Angeles. We'll be adding some more neighborhoods and cities soon, so stay tuned!
We've also been busy reprinting our set of Los Angeles Westside postcards that we're nearly out of stock (literally, we had one last set left that we found mixed in with another neighborhood!). We've had a great response from our neighborhood postcards, everyone seems to get a real kick out of sharing hyper-local snapshots of their corner of the world.
It's been fun to revisit some of our older designs while we get to work on our winter holiday collection. The Venice card in particular has been a beast for us to print in the past, so much so that we were actually considering changing the design after our current stock sold out. However, when we got it on the press the other day, by some miracle, it printed like a dream! We aren't questioning what happened, we think it's mostly because we changed inks, but who knows as long as it works!
We've also added some prints to the shop, we're offering three limited editions of 100 signed prints of the Cinerama Dome in Hollywood, the Sun-Lake Drugs building in Silver Lake and the Norm's from Santa Monica that closed recently. We're offering them as framed and unframed prints. Once we've sold out our full run of 100, we'll add a new design.
We're also working on some other projects that aren't quite ready for prime time yet, we're getting really excited and can't wait to tell everyone about it. Fingers crossed we'll be able to tell you soon! We hope you're having a great summer, here in L.A. it's been cooler than last summer, we'll see what the fall brings!
