Welcome to The FREE Letterpress Bookmark Project!
(The FREE Letterpress Bookmark Project ended on December 31, 2012, however our new FREE Letterpress Postcard Project began on January 1, 2013 and runs through June 30, 2013. Watch this blog for details.)
To celebrate good old fashioned books printed on paper, to support literacy, to bring awareness letterpress printing, to re-purpose scraps of art paper and to provide you, our esteemed readers with a little gift from Peach Farm Studio, we are creating a variety of special edition of hand-typeset, letterpress printed bookmarks and we are giving them away — FREE!
Here’s why we are doing this:
We have a soft spot in our hearts for good old fashioned books — the kind printed on paper. (Nothing against electronic versions of books and all the associated gadgetry — so, no hard feelings, okay? – but they just aren’t as cozy as curling up with a book, a blanket, maybe a cat or dog and flipping pages literally, not virtually.) Nostalgia? Perhaps. Either way, in addition to books printed on paper, we love bookstores and love the feeling of sitting in a library or bookstore, especially the ones that have a little sitting area and the smell of coffee wafting throughout the building from a coffee bar or from a cafe next door. And of course we love letterpress – it’s what we do.
Here’s how you can get ten (10) special edition, hand set, letterpress printed bookmarks from Peach Farm Studio:
- Post a comment on this blog, on any of our posts between now and
March 31, 2012DECEMBER 31, 2012 AND in your comment be sure to list the title and author of your top three favorite [printed on paper] books.
- ALSO send a letter-sized, self-addressed, stamped envelope to: Peach Farm Studio, c/o ZenGei Works, P.O. Box 3665, Santa Rosa, CA 95402, U.S.A.
That’s it! After we receive your letter-sized, self-addressed, stamped envelope in the mail we will put 10 of the special edition bookmarks in the envelope and mail them back to you. (The 10 bookmarks weigh about as much as a standard letter, so standard letter postage is sufficient.) It is that simple! (We promise we won’t share or use your address for anything else, except perhaps to send you am occasional hand-typeset, letterpress “Happy Holiday” or some such card from Peach Farm Studio.)
- This offer is only good through
March 31, 2012DECEMBER 31, 2012. Self-addressed, stamped envelopes we receive on or after April 1, 2012January 1, 2013 will be returned empty. Sorry about that, but we will be moving onto another fun project at that time.
- One envelope per name or address only, please.
- The design, colors, fonts, paper, images, text and inks used to make the bookmarks may vary from bookmark-to-bookmark due to the nature of this project, however we can assure you that all of the bookmarks will be hand typeset and letterpress printed by Peach Farm Studio. We hope you will enjoy what we come up with. Sorry, no returns or exchanges.
- Allow up to 4 weeks for delivery. (We’ll be printing as fast as we can, but knowing we have the extra time if we need it will help.)
- Feel free to tell your friends about this offer. The more, the merrier!
- We will post this offer several times on this blog, our Facebook, Twitter and Tumbler pages, in order to tell as many people possible about this offer, so thanks for bearing with us if you see the post more than once.
- If you have any questions, please ask us.
Long live books printed on paper and letterpress printing!
