There is something so indescribably awesome about receiving something in the mail. Even if you order it yourself online, and you know its coming! The feeling is still there. Maybe for me it’s because I’m packaging obsessed, so all the little bits, bobs, stickers and handwriting fascinate me? Par example:
I ordered two prints from Karolin Schnoor. A screenprinted poster, and a little screenprinted card. I’m super pleased with the prints, but more than anything, I’m really enjoying the attention to detail, and the effort that has gone into this shipment. Like the awesome handwriting above, and that branding on the postal tube. To this business card that came with the greeting card…
It’s so simple and so inspiring. I’ve been doing research into printing my own set of cards, but the costs have so far been prohibitive. This is printed in one color and loses nothing in terms of impact.
But wait, there’s more! Have a look at this sweet thank-you that was slipped into the poster tube.
I mean, how awesome is that? Details, people, details. But I’m waffling. Let’s move on to the meat of the post – the actual prints. The little greeting card is now happily residing in a simple frame I had lying around.
Hmmm, that’s more like it. That my friends, is pretty much perfect as far as I’m concerned. And the poster, you ask? (Types the author knowing full well no one has indeed asked anything of the sort) Well here it is. That’s as much as I can show you for now. I’m going to leave it to my framers to straighten it out, as it is much too pretty to crease up!
