Christmas in July letterpress promotion – free shipping!

Our Christmas in July letterpress promotion is already available on FPS! We thought a lot about a good promo offer for this Christmas in July and there’s really nothing like a “free shipping” promotion.

Shipping and mainly shipping fees are always a big problem, especially since we mostly sell abroad. We’ve even had times when the shipping fees were higher than our items’ prices! We’re always searching for the best shipping options, but we can only do so much. Well this time around, a whole month of Free Shipping for our Christmas in July letterpress promotion is the absolute best option!

Take this opportunity to stock up on your letterpress business cards and tags, coasters and stationery! If you’re preparing for your wedding, this is the best time to be thinking of your letterpress wedding set (letterpress invitations, envelopes, RSVP cards, menus, accommodation cards etc.) as you won’t have to worry about shipping fees!

As i was saying above, our Christmas in July letterpress promotion is already active, so go ahead and throw us a challenge! We also have a bunch of ink colors to choose from (ranging from deep black, various blue shades, green, red, yellow, magenta, orange, brown, even the metallic copper-gold i was showing you last time), so you can definitely use your imagination with this one!

If you like our Christmas in July letterpress promotion, please share the news and spread the word! Thank you!

The Funky Studio team wishes you, as always, a colorful day!

What has FPS been doing? Custom letterpress business cards, wedding sets, custom designs, new boxes and ranting

FPS has been quite busy, even though lately you can tell people are finally starting their summer holidays. We’ve been working on several custom letterpress business cards, new templates for business cards (which i’m quite anxious to have up in the shop), new templates for save the date cards and also our very first letterpress wedding invitations and reception cards!

We played with ink colors again as we took on a custom letterpress business cards order that had to be printed in navy blue (i must admit, i can’t wait for the client to receive her package as these cards are definitely my favorite project so far! They turned out wonderful! Will have to wait for a confirmation before showing any photos though.). Continuing with ink colors playing, we re-printed our business cards using a sort of metallic copper-gold-brownish ink. Now that’s a color description! But seriously, it’s exactly that! It is a sparkling copper in the sunlight, but it turns brown when inside… The photos can’t really show these subtle changes, but in reality this ink color is quite amazing!

Our first custom wedding stationery set is also something i’m very proud of. I really enjoyed working on the design and we’re actually close to completion. We printed this wedding set in navy blue as well and we also made custom envelopes with blind printing on them. I’m guessing the actual Pantone color for the year is not really Marsala, but Navy Blue…

Our packaging shop will also be updated with new boxes quite soon. We have a bunch of them not listed yet, but alas, my all time nemesis, photography, gets in the way!

The letterpress shop is also in full-mode Christmas in July party! We have a special offer for Christmas in July: free shipping!! I’ll be doing a separate post about this too, but i thought i should mention it here too. So all of you business owners in search for impressive business cards or tags, all of you love-birds searching for beautiful wedding stationery that your guests won’t be able to throw away, all of you people around the world in search of custom letterpress printing, now it’s your chance! We’ll be handling the shipping for you, so there are no boundaries!

I really felt like ranting today, so i’ve done it! It’s also because i should have blogged sooner, but i must admit i’m also thinking of my summer holiday a lot lately…

The Funky Studio team wishes you, as always, a colorful day!

Custom letterpress business cards. General ideas and introduction

Custom letterpress business cards is the very first “serious” subject i chose to blog about as i can also look at it like it’s an introductory post.

Short letterpress introduction

I’ve explained briefly what letterpress is in our FAQ and Terms section, but i’m pretty sure more and more people are already familiar with this process even though it’s so old. The reason for that is the sudden rebirth of letterpress printing appealing to more and more people each day. As terrible of a photographer as i am, you can still clearly see the indentation letterpress printing leaves on the piece of card stock. That is basically what people are looking for as well as good quality, thick card stock.

In this era of technology paper is indeed losing ground, but no matter how advanced technology gets paper will surely always be used. The rebirth of letterpress printing comes as one of the responses to this technology evolution. Nowadays, when exchanging contact information all you need is your mobile phone. We even started sending wedding invitations through emails! RSVPs? Just a text message away… Well letterpress printing came to show that a tangible, physical object will surely leave a lasting impression that will definitely be beneficial on the long term.

In the custom letterpress business cards’ case, you can even see in our photos (if you haven’t already had one) that they are way different than regular, digital printed business cards; they are special, they provide an exquisite visual and tactile experience that will make it difficult for the receiver to throw it away. Having someone write your number in their phone will simply mean adding a new name in a long list that’s already more than half forgotten. Do you want that person to actually consider you for a future business? Do you actually want that person to call you back or send an email? Make that statement directly through your custom letterpress business cards. The receiver will surely have a hard time throwing your custom letterpress business cards away, so having one on his desk every day, being reminded of you every day will surely increase the chances of getting back to you, right?

Welcome to Funky Print Studio!

letterpress cardsHello and welcome to Funky Print Studio! The time has finally come when i, Andreea, your personal customer service provider can wholeheartedly welcome you to our new letterpress shop and website.

It is definitely a turning point for us as we’ve been providing gift boxes and other paper supplies since April 2013 on our Funky Box Studio shop and now, 2 years later, we are extremely excited, happy, thrilled to be expanding into the letterpress printing world. We’ve definitely worked hard to get to this point, but it is such an accomplishment for us that it surely makes it worth it.

So what exactly do you do?, oh yes, i can hear your question there! We at Funky Print Studio offer letterpress printing services materialized in letterpress business cards, letterpress wedding invitations, simple flat cards or folded cards, coasters, tags, stationery etc. Our studio was born after careful consideration, out of love for printing, card stock and paper, colors and art. We had a huge interest in letterpress for a good chunk of time, but only recently decided to open a studio of our own. It is still far from what we have in mind as a final goal, but hey! we do have to begin at some point, right?

We sure hope our services will be put to good use and our letterpress printed items will help in leaving a lasting impression on your guests, your clients, yourself.

The Funky Studio team wishes you, as always, a colorful day!
