Post No.784 Our 2013 Prints. Want one?

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.

post No.664 Our 2012 prints. Want one?

For our New Year’s card this year I wanted to send friends of Urbanic a little card that was more of an art print. The vision I had was to send something that was desk or bulletin-board worthy with an optimistic message about 2012. We printed these beauties up in gold foil on thick white paper and I have to say, I’m totally in love with the way they turned out! I actually think they are bringing me more happiness then every recipient combined. Since it’s really hard to keep up with everyone’s changing address these days I printed some extras to hand to regulars at the shop AND I also printed extras for you! If you want one, just leave a comment on this post letting us know and then send your address here.

post No.657 Holiday Giveaway Winners …

I have absolutely adopted some of your holiday traditions and loved reading about ornaments that are special to you.  This year Joshua and I went out and picked two ornaments for our sons that reminded us of them and have started to build them their own collection. It felt so good to write the year 2011 on the bottom of the ornaments knowing that there would be a time in the future that they would cherish these and remember receiving them as little ones.  Thanks to all of you who shared on our Giveaway Post.  The Random number generator has selected the 4 winners…

.

prize No.1 goes to – Jessica Lynn who loves the ornament her grandma made her out of yarn.

prize No.2 goes to – Maple who cherishes her ornament she made out of dough in the 1st grade.

prize No.3 goes to – Sarah who filled a glass ornament with strips of her letterpress wedding invitations.

prize No.4 goes to – Maria Anne whose favorite holiday tradition is a cup of cocoa and a Christmas movie.

post No.583 Wiley Valentine *special offer *

Happy Friday all!  Today I’m posting a special offer for 1 lucky bride from Wiley Valentine.  At the stationery show they debuted a special new collection of some brand new luxe additions that I’m absolutely crazy about! They’re gearing up to letterpress the collection to showcase in their new albums on beautiful heavy stock and thought  … “why not let an Urbanic bride take advantage of this upgrade as a total bonus?!”  That being said, the first bride to order from the new collection will get their whole suite upgraded to letterpress on 2-ply paper.  Meaning, that whatever lucky lady contacts us first will only have to pay for their wedding invitation suite flat printed on standard luxe paper. This is a HUGE savings as I’m sure you can imagine. The completed set will be inserted into all the Wiley Albums making that customized set famous for many years to come.  If you’re interested contact us ASAP for either an appointment at the shop -or- to work out this order via email.  A few of the suites are posted below but you can preview the entire new collection here.
