2014 print | Urbanic

As many of you already know, we send out a little New Year’s print to friends and colleagues of Urbanic every year. Our goal is to make it more of a little art print than a card so it can become inspiration board worthy. This year we ran into some unfortunate printing problems with card and I almost cancelled the whole project multiple times as it was getting so late in the month. But THEN, I thought about it, and decided it’s *always* fun to get good mail! – and an inspiring little bulletin board print at that! So I swallowed my timeline etiquette pride and sent out these little beauties anyway.  As always, I’ve printed extras for you all if you should want one.  We’re sending them out complimentary (first come first serve) to anyone that writes in.  Just send us a buck for the shipping and we’ll pop one in the mail your way! They’ll be included in all web orders as well. You can snag your print in our pop-up shop here.

I love how they came out this year! We had the talented Sarah from Parrot Design Studio hand letter them for us and she definitely captured the brush strokes I was hoping for perfectly.  BTW – If you’re curious, you can check out our cards from 2013 and 2012 at these links.

Every year we like to send out New Year’s Cards to friends of  the shop. Last year, the cards we sent out for Urbanic were created more as a little art print than just a card, with the idea of having something worthy of a desk or bulletin board.  We did it again this year with a fresh+fun outlook on 2013.  I worked with  Scout’s Honor to create these amazing hand-lettered prints, using white ink on chipboard stock. I love how they came out this year and printed some extras for all of you! We’re sending them out complimentary (first come, first serve) to anyone who writes in. They’ll be included in all web orders or  just send us a buck for the shipping and we’ll pop one in the mail your way.  You can snag your print right here.
