Western Editions for American Made Contest

Comment

Hi friends,

It all started about a year ago with you and your support that made Western Editions what we are today. We have been printing up a storm of custom designs and working with really great small local businesses, as well as sharing our addiction to letterpress through Workshop SF! 

We are now a nominee for Martha Stewart's American Made contest, which is decided by you and you and you and you... We would be oh so grateful if you could visit the page and vote for us. (One person can vote up to 6 times per day! Now is the time to use any and every email address you have ever created!) The contest runs through September 13 so when you're browsing Facebook or reading that NPR article, think of us and head over to...

Thanks so much! 

Erin and Taylor


Update #8

Spring Update!

Comment

We've been busy as bees over here at Western Editions since 2013 rolled in. We almost can't believe it's Spring- though we are stoked that winter is over! We have worked on some awesome projects since things have been underway. Just to name a few; awesome notecards for Aubrey Maxwell, menus on Heath Ceramic tiles for Stag Dinging, press kit packaging for Juice Shop and wedding invitations for some dear friends!

We are also offering about three workshops a month through SF's DIY school, Workshop. Please check their website if you want to sign up and take a class with us!

Pardon the lack of updates to our blog, we have been working on designing and building a new website and are excited to get it up and running. It's apparent we're faster on machines from the 1950s than we are the internet.

When we start teaching a workshop we usually end up telling the story of how Western Editions came to be. Every time we're reminded (again) of how AMAZING our backers from Kickstarter are! Have a project in mind? Are you friends getting married? Need some special labels for that goat's milk yougurt you're producing in small batches? Got a random question about letterpress? Want to take a class? We have your back. We love getting emails from the community and look forward to meeting more of you! You can reach us anytime at westerneditions@gmail.com.

Hope to see you there!
