This week’s Five for Friday is in honour of the Calgary Stampede which starts today. It’s something everyone should experience at least once. I have nothing but fond, and sometimes hazy memories of years past. I won’t be joining the party this year but it seems cowboys are never far, even in print.
One of my favourite reds, The Show by Three Thieves features labels by Hatch Show Print, one of the oldest letterpress print shops in America. They designed three different labels for the same bottle and not only is it good to drink, it’s good to look at too.
Red Oak Press has a line of cowboy letterpress cards and this one is my favourite:
A couple other letterpress cards…
Letterpress baby card by Sweetbeets
Letterpress birthday card by That Sky Blue
Have a great weekend, yee hah!
