Evolution Press Picnic, August 2011

We here at Evolution Press like to celebrate warm summer days when we can – which isn’t often in Seattle.  Last week, we threw a Company/Client picnic, featuring catering by Skillet Street Food and Parfait Organic Ice Cream.  The weather was amazing, the food was delicious, and it was truly a treat to take some time out to spend with our much-appreciated clients and friends.

We had West Coast Paper, Neenah Paper and Reich Paper representatives join us, with swatch books on hand.

In the shop, we had on display a collection of archival linocut posters from the Annual SVC Steamroller Print Exhibit. The 10th annual Wayzgoose is coming up on SAT. AUGUST 27, 2011
from 1–6 PM at  the School of Visual Concepts, and is not to be missed. Free and open to the public.

Bunny Hang Tags

These adorable paper bunny hang tags came to us via Amy Redmond. They were produced for Kata Golda, an artist who works primarily producing hand sewn felted children’s toys, books, and accessories.  The use of letterpress and 100% cotton paper fit perfectly with Kata’s aesthetic, which features handcrafted detail and craftsmanship.

The bunnies were first letterpress printed on 236# cotton Reich Paper and then die cut into the whimsical bunny shape.  They are two-sided and feature a hole at the top of the bunny ear, which was created with the die cut press pass. This hole will be used to pass ribbon or twine through. This piece went through 3 passes total. Post print production, these bunnies were clothed in felt, and hand sewn with an initial on the front by Kata Golda.
