Make it an Endless Summer!

Endless Summer | Mark & Graham

Ahhhh, there are only a few weeks of summertime left, so we are going to relax and take in as much sunshine as we can! At least a few times a week seems fair, don’t you think?! We are going to treat this the waning days of the season as if they’re endless (if only in our dreams!).

The beach has become our second home this season, so it only makes sense we make it just as cozy! A large, monogramed towel that has just as much personality as your favorite top is key to a perfect day at the beach. After a dip in the ocean and laying out, cover up with a breezy tunic! Baseball caps show off your personalized style while providing shade as your page through your favorite Summer novel.

Toast to Type: The Ruby Rouser

This week we are bringing back Toast to Type for a special summertime libatinon! Cassandra LaValle of the blog Coco+Kelley recently mixed up this refreshing and beautiful cocktail and we blushed when we saw she’d accessorized it with our Typographers Cocktail Napkins!!

Based on one of her favorite memories of summer in Washington state – cherries, this cocktail deliciously combines Lillet and gin to create a tart yet sweet treat that we could see ourselves sipping on a particularly warm Summer evening!

Free Font Friday

After enjoying last week’s long holiday weekend, we are graciously welcoming Friday with open arms, aren’t you?! And what better way to kick a much needed weekend with another Free Font: Antrokas!

Antrokas is not like your grandmother’s calligraphy (sorry grandma!). It contains exaggerated round curves and angular direction that mimics a gliding hand lettered style.

It is a flowy, modern font that is great for packaging, display or decorative purposes. For example, we’d gladly use this font in place of handwritten calligraphy for invitations or envelopes. We are keeping this one in our font bank for those special occasions that require a bit of finesse and the delicate touch that (even faux) calligraphy provides!

Design Double Take

macaron typography

It’s no secret we love typography, but did you know our love for macarons are a close second? We couldn’t think of anything better than when the two are (deliciously) combined!

The entertaining wiz Lexy Ward of the blog Proper Pinwheel created these almost-to-pretty-to-eat macarons. Calligraphy + macarons, we LOVE it! After assembling the tasty treats, she added the lettering with an edible marker. Edible markers?! We are going to be on the lookout for these genius kitchen tools!

Edible typography might just be our newest favorite dessert trend.
