In Radiolab We Trust


I love Radiolab. I also love gocco. So the new print series benefiting Radiolab, In Radiolab We Trust, is right up my alley. The series, curated by Jez Burrows, includes prints from Always With Honor, Jim Datz, Jessica Hische, Lab Partners, and Richard Perez. Grab your copy from the edition of 100 here.

Owen and I are members of the etsy team Etsy Greetings. It is a pretty active group of greeting card designers. One of the things I like most about selling on etsy is the sense of community and support you feel from other sellers. Etsy teams are a really great way to help build those connections.

mothers_day_2009Etsy Greetings is running a free shipping for Mother’s Day promotion from April 13th – May 5th. We’re offering free secondary shipping (to the US and Canada) on cards from our Cards for Mom section.

Lab Partners!

Without a doubt one of my all-time favorite etsy shops is Lab Partners. Owen and I already have a bunch of their prints, but I am really excited about the one I purchased last night. It is an artist proof of one of the prints from their Hunt & Gather show.

I think they do really great work and love the ways that they use gocco. Plus, Owen and I are both total suckers for a visible halftone.
