Funky Studio updates. What have we been doing lately?

It was about time i put together a Funky Studio updates post. Even though i promised myself i’d blog as much as possible this year, we’re quite busy lately. I’m over the top happy to say that our Free Shipping letterpress in February promotion has a lot to do with our busy schedule.

funky studio updatesWe’re currently working on a bunch of different letterpress projects and each one has something special: lovely letterpress wedding invitations with two ink colors, round letterpress business cards, custom designs for some business cards and on top of all these, we’re also making about 1000 different boxes for our packaging shop. All in all, we’re working hard, so we definitely needed a Funky Studio updates post!

Moreover, we’re also preparing for something big: expanding our little studio’s activity again! We first began with our boxes and paper supplies, were thrilled to throw ourselves into the letterpress world and now, finally, the time has come for the ultimate upgrade: hot foil printing! Although we haven’t officially introduced hot foil as part of our services yet, we’ve already had our first project using this kind of printing and we’re ecstatic! We’re also reminded of our letterpress beginnings: just like it happened now, we took on a letterpress project before even opening our website or shop! Well, stay tuned! Hot foil printing will soon be available in our shop, even though, of course, we can already take orders, so please contact us at office@funkyprintstudio.com if you’d be interested!

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

February mood board. Hello, romantic February! Please, be good!

Even though they say this is the month of love, my February mood board doesn’t really reflect that. Actually i don’t really like this month much. I always seem to catch a cold in February and this time is no different.

Well, i may not like the month, but i’m doing my very best to keep active and take on new challenges. There’s also the “Free shipping letterpress” promotion for this month, so i’m making sure the cold weather doesn’t get me down. Although i admit i’d much rather just stay inside, drink hot cocoa with lots of cream and read a bunch of books. That’s definitely my view on February. We can’t always get what we want, right? Therefore, i get on to the second best things: work on both the letterpress shop and the packaging shop, make plans, organize stuff.

I tend to not drink enough water, which is not good, so i got one of those little phone apps to remind me to drink. It may sound stupid, but it does the trick for me. I’ve started a couple of days before and so far so good.

Then, today i’ll start a 30 Days workout challenge. This is actually also a phone app, so i guess i’m finally starting to realize the benefits of phone apps? Anyway, i’ll get back with updates on this one, but i’m pretty confident it will be ok. Or maybe i just got a boost of confidence altogether since i just turned 30? Hmmm…. it might be…

Oh well, my February mood board is kinda like this…

Wednesday Wishes. New Year’s resolutions

It was definitely time to put together a New Year’s resolutions post. I have so many plans for this year, both major and little things as well! Really, there’s a very wide range here: from buying hand sanitizer to getting a house! Now that’s a fair idea of the wide range of goals i was talking about.

wednesdayOh well, let’s see if we can put together a list:

* Turn hobby into actual business. I don’t think this needs further explaining. It’s going to be a dream come true!

* Get a house. Another “dream come true” thing.

* Visit more of Romania. Though it’s going to be difficult because of the other major goals, but hey? Who knows? It might just work out.

* Get an eye surgery. Oh yeah, my sight is pretty bad, but surgery is possible, so i want to give it a try.

* Get braces put on. As it turns out, my eyes aren’t the only bad thing about me. Also, it’s never too late for braces. Basically, if you want something, go for it!

* Create wedding sets designs, have samples made, get them photographed and listed. I have so many ideas, but so little time. Also, it’s quite difficult and expensive too to have letterpress samples made. But it must be done either way.

* I kind of gave up on the number of sales goal because more and more sales are coming directly through mail and i can’t keep up. As for the letterpress shop, actually most of the sales are done through mail. So basically what i’m trying to say here is that i need to organize the sales somehow.

* Get hand sanitizer and thermal water. I so need these!

* Get better at taking photos. I’m so struggling with this! I even considered having a professional take photos for my items, but it’s driving me crazy that i can’t, so i keep trying…

* Get back into sports. Last year i did great at this, so i must pick it up again. Sports combined with a mere 10 minutes round of meditation. I never thought it would do me so much good!

* Read more. There are soooo many books i want to read and my new toy makes it possible for me to have access to all of them. I have a new Kindle and i love it! Currently reading: “The Da Vinci code”.

* Cook more. I think i always write this as part of my goals. The lack of free time is really killing me, but i’m doing my best here.

* Stop taking everything to heart. This has been my problem for as long as i can remember. I let stupid things (and people) get me down. Must stop caring so much.

* Celebrate birthdays. I have a problem remembering birthdays; i would really forget my own if other people didn’t remind me of it.

Weeeell maybe i should stop for now. I think there are a mot more, but there’s always next Wednesday, right? That’s about it with my New Year’s resolutions for this Wednesday.

Until then, take care!!

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