February Calendar

So it’s already February, goodness! Here is this months calendar. 3 color letterpress, die-cut and hand assembled. There is a lot going on here, the detail is pretty awesome, if I may say so. The main ornaments used are in the Caravan Family, an amazingly usable collection.

If you don’t know the backstory to our promo calendars they are a piece we send out each and every month to current and prospective clients. If you’r a designer, work for an agency, or have a need for custom printing contact me and I’ll get you on the list. This year has started out with some great jobs which I’ll be posting soon.

As always thanks for checking in,

Here’s a screen print poster job we did recently. These are to post up around town announcing an upcoming art show here in north Jersey. As you can see there are two versions. The large, vibrant, and eye-catching poster, and the smaller more subtle version.

If your in the Bergen County area and would like more details on the event leave a comment and I’ll get back to you.

Thanks for checking in. Hope everyones November is going smooth,

Brian & Cliff Cordes

Working the pre-press department here at Norman’s Printery is only one of my many joys. Over the past 5 or so years I’ve been increasingly engaged in analog photography. Starting with just a simple (but very beautiful) Polaroid Colorpack ii, to shooting a variety of formats, running a B&W darkroom, and studying the best practices for digital output.

Through the years the simple and instant joy of polaroid photography has never left me. These shoots where taken with a Polaroid 600 SE, a great piece of machinery. I used Fujifilm FP-3000B, it’s the old pack style peel apart film. It performs amazing in low light. I’m also a huge fan of the Impossible Project and all the good work they’ve been doing to keep instant photography alive.

I’d thought I’d bring two of my passions together to give you a look into our workspace. If your a photographer as well we’d love to see your work, leave a link in to comments.

Thanks for checking in, hoping your having an amazing and prosperous November.

This one was a first for us. A screen print/letterpress combo. Washington Irving’s horsemen rides through the woods on the screen printed background. Then the type went down in black letterpress. We used French Paper’s Construction Safety Orange 100lb. cover, which is a beautifully rich sheet.

Over the past weeks we’ve seen our calendars showing up around. Thanks to the bloggers who have kindly spolighted some of our work. The Reference Council, Designworklife, Salt + Pepperhola!design, and LukeSF.

As always, thanks for checking in.
