New! A handmade letterpress from Jenn Graves
It’s time for a holiday treat. We can’t share our T-day leftovers over the internet, but we’re serving up another something special: FREE shipping on all orders in the continental US when you spend $50 or more—through this Monday, 11/28 at 11:59pm PT only! Use code YIPPEE.
Folks who’ve been with us for a while know we rarely ever offer free shipping—we’re a super small team and take extra care packing and shipping every artwork, so the cost of shipping isn’t something we can usually cover. Consider this your once-in-a-blue-moon chance to score the satisfaction of free shipping for all the art in your cart—prints, framed prints, or objects. Just spend $50+ and enter code YIPPEE at checkout.
This is a great opportunity to get that holiday gift list in order. Our order deadlines for guaranteed delivery for some holiday cheer are coming up—11/28 for the first night of Hanukkah and 12/5 for Christmas Eve. Orders placed after that date could still get to you in time (and we have select pieces that’ll ship with speedier service for on-sched arrival), but there won’t be any other opportunity to snag free shipping. Use YIPPEE by midnight PT on Monday, 11/28!
The FINE PRINT (not to be confused with our fine prints)

Greetings, collectors! Today we’ve got an extra special debut Artist-Made edition from LA-based printer and book artist Jenn Graves. Introducing REST., a rich celebration of craft, color, and calm. This limited edition series of original handmade 11”x16” letterpress prints boldly reminds us to REST.—a task that remains elusive for many of us.
REST. is a declarative salute to deceleration. Graves leans into the slow and meditative nature of letterpress as a craft. Using a vintage sans serif wood type designed by Day & Collins in the 1890s, she chose her font with intention to impress strength and simplicity into print. Equally considered, her inks are unique. Each color is hand-mixed and printed in three layers, resulting in distinctly robust tones. Finally, each letterpress print is hand-fed through a 1960s Vandercook Universal press four times to achieve the vividly layered design.
The vibrant, stratified arrangement of letters is intense and contrasting, but blends into a cohesive message inviting us to quiet our chaos, pause, and reflect. It’s bold, loud, and assertive on purpose. It is designed to be listened to, to give us permission to REST.—even just for a moment.
Originally a teacher, Graves spent her early career in public schools and libraries before developing her letterpress printing practice. Her prints and collaborative artist book have been exhibited both nationally and internationally, and she now teaches letterpress, bookbinding, and book structures at Otis College of Art and Design and the International Printing Museum. We’re thrilled to welcome a woman of such phenomenal talent and knowledge into our orbit.
