Wordshop Wednesday: Egg Press!

For a blog entitled Words & Eggs, I’m quite astonished that I haven’t yet featured Egg Press on the site. What the heck have I been doing with my time?! Well… better late than never, right? Right.

So, without further ado, allow me to introduce you to the intricate loveliness of… Egg Press!

They even have ridiculous, little baby onesies:

Egg Press also offers a ton of Valentine cards, but I refuse to display them to you right now. I figure I’ll do some sort of Valentine post later on, even though I generally find Valentine’s Day an annoying pseudo-holiday invented by the Whitman’s Sampler and FTD (among others). But feel free to head on over to Egg land and check out their V Day cards, because they’re pretty d@mn awesome (for a lame-o “holiday”).

Happy New Year… blah blah blah

Saturday with Sycamore

Thanks to the Poppy Talk site, I just discovered a ridiculously creative letterpresser by the name of Sycamore Street Press, which you may access HERE. They offer everything from letterpress greeting cards to gift tags to calendars to bookplates — and all with a unique sense of humour. Here are some samples:

Rock, Scissor, Paper (aka, AWESOME)

ROCK, SCISSOR, PAPER is a wonderful website where you can find woodgrain items such as journals, greeting cards, calendars, and gift tags. You can also find non-woodgrain items that are equally as awesome. Want proof? Well then, I will comply.

OWLS MAKE ME HAPPY:

(OK, so it was a little difficult for me to choose between all the ridiculously cute images… I may have gone a bit overboard.)
