Our 2012 letterpress printed calendar is flying off the shelves this year!  Inspired by a 1960s spirograph set, all images are hand drawn and letterpress printed by hand on Legion bamboo paper.  And this may be the only place you can see images of ALL twelve months!  Enjoy!  You can purchase it from our Etsy shop, if you still haven’t ordered one.  Orders placed before December 16th guaranteed to arrive before the holidays.

NOW ACCEPTING PARTICIPANTS!

In March of this year, Cherokee Street was fortunate enough to host an evening of printmaking madness as part of the international conference, SGC. With thousands of attendees (participants and on-lookers), the street was lit up in celebration of art and community.

Following on the heels of the event that brought international attention to Cherokee Street, galleries & businesses in the district are teaming up to showcase artists working with printed media for the annual Cherokee Print League Holiday Sale: Saturday, December 3rd from 10am-7pm. This indoor print-themed arts & craft sale will take place all along the street, with businesses hosting over 50 artists from all over the St. Louis area (as well as the greater midwest) whose work is print-related (printmaking, letterpress, screen printing, printed fabrics, anything printed goes!)

WE’D LOVE TO HAVE YOU PARTICIPATE!

Last year, many hundreds of people turned up for the event to mosey along the historic shopping district and purchase the printed wares of local artists. As the first street-wide art event following SCG, this year’s show will be bigger than ever! Organized as a sale rather than an art show, the event promises a huge turnout and would be a great way to make some cash before the holiday season. Hosting businesses will be extensively advertising the event, and 100% of participation fees go toward advertising.

All artists will be guaranteed a comfortable, easily accessible location to showcase their artwork. You will be provided with a table in an indoor, heated space, and your name and location will be included on a map of the event that will be available the day of the sale.

Paper Boats!

March 25, 2011

We’re in love with the printed paper boats decorating the window in our St. Louis shop! Printed on the C&P and folded by Amy’s students at Maryville University, these boats were hung just in time for all of our visitors during the Southern Graphics Council International Conference last Friday, March 18th. Cherokee Street was hoppin’ that night with conference-goers and all sorts of other revelers. Thanks for visiting Paper Boat Studios!


We wanted to post a few photos of our booth from St. Louis’ Off-White Indie Wedding Show held at Third Degree Glass Factory on March 20th. The show was a success: our booth looked great and we met lots of other vendors and supporters throughout the day. So fun!
