In Case You Missed Us Last Weekend

Posted on October 30, 2014 by Matthew Swanson

The RiverArts Studio tour is two weekends long, so if you weren’t able to make it to our grand opening, you still have the option of swinging by to say hello during our nearly as grand continuation.

To recap the offerings, our Chestertown stuff will be available for your various stockpiling needs.

I am going to go out on a limb and assume that ours is the only letterpressed likeness of a 7-Eleven on the planet. If I am wrong, I would love to to see the evidence.

You will also have the opportunity to buy a wide variety of colorful (in several ways) greeting cards as well as cards that bear the distinctive mark of Robbi’s various triumphant, depressed, bewildered, and gratified animals.

The “Animals Uncensored” (as we call them) cards also come in boxed sets if you can’t stand the thought of not owning them all.

We will be selling our Baby is Disappointing card set.

And our semi-custom family trees.

The idea is that we add as many bird bodies as you have people in your flock.

We send you the prints and a stamp pad so each member of the family can literally put their mark upon it.

We sell the prints in packs of ten so that various grandparents can have one, too.

You will also be welcome to come upstairs and browse the Idiots and Bobbledy offerings. Though I cannot promise that I will not take sly semi-selfies of you over my shoulder.

Also, there will be Christmas cards, sold blank or with your personalized message inside.

Note that we are seriously considering a “Merrry Fucking Christmas,” card, but no designs have yet been rendered.

And keep in mind that should your life turn up the need for thoughtful, funny, expertly illustrated, and beautifully illustrated letterpress items, we are here for you.

That’s it for now. I’m off to Pennsylvania for the day. But know that we will be standing by the front door waiting on Saturday morning at 10:00am.

So come on down and see us. If letterpress isn’t your think, please note that there will be snacks.
