Hey! Did you notice anything new about the Got Craft website? The entire website was refreshed last week and given a new lick of paint! You may recognize some familiar illustrations along the header. The amazing Jeannette from The Beautiful Project took the designs she created for past Got Craft? print material and placed them along the top. Pretty cute, right? Hope you like it as much as we do!

What is letterpress? Letterpress is AWESOME! Jarin and Catherine use grand industrial age equipment, capable of reproducing fine images with a striking impression. The characteristics of letterpress are unmatched in digital printing. It shows depth, plays with light, and has wondrous tactile qualities.
