Spring 2016 Paper Collection

Spring 2016 Paper Collection | Sycamore Street Press

Spring is here and so is our new collection! It has a bright, fresh aesthetic — perfect for the warm months ahead. We’ve been working on this collection for months and I’ve been so antsy to show you. Let me know what you think!

For our Rainbow Birthday collection, I had fun breaking out the oil pastels my parents gave me when I was a teenager. (Eons ago, I know.) I wanted to play off of the saturated color and fun texture of the pastels along with a 60s inspired font (instead of my usual hand lettering).

Who doesn’t love getting a thank you card? For our spring launch, I wanted to add more of these long format cards on fresh colored cardstock and stamped with white foil.

I took my favorite photos from our California Cactus printable poster collection, and turned them into greeting cards. I like having “blank” cards like this that can be used for just about any situation.

10 Hip Shops in Minneapolis

Hip Shops in Minneapolis

I grew up in Minnesota and go back home as often as possible! One of the many reasons I love Minnesota is because there’s truly something for everyone…the explorer, the foodie, the artist, the theatre goer, the music lover, and yes, the shoppers, whom this list is for. Next time you’re in Minneapolis…make sure to check out the following shops (right after spending a day on the lake, eating a Jucy Lucy, and checking out the amazing theaters and museums this city also has to offer). – Annie

What We're Loving This Month | Sycamore Street Press

Is it April already? I’m excited for this month — spring is finally here! We’ve got a lot in the works here at Sycamore… We’re hoping to finish up the studio revamp. Kirk and I are heading to Portland, Oregon for a week with NØRR film to do a couple of videos for a client. Then we’ll be launching our SS16 paper collection at the end of the month. Most importantly, our little Lars is turning 3!

Here are some of our favorite links right now…
