Seth Ciferri has been making custom tattoo machines since 1994 creating a range of unique liners and shaders. One of his latest is the “Light Roast” liner and in keeping with the roast theme, Seth partnered with fellow Portland business Courier Coffee Roasters to create a special packaging that combines the liner with ½ pound of coffee. Bringing together the two entities was Keegan Wenkman, who created some lovely lettering and illustration compositions for each, and printing those on a kraft paper bag. The result is something we will call Rustic Independent Chic. Or not. Point being, it’s very nice. And, also, very hard as Keegan shares:

It’s terribly hard to print letterpress coffee bags, but possible. I had to build a jig of masking tape to fill the gap in the bag from its side folds in order to get a reasonable print… lots of fun though… its was low run, hand-fed and duo-tone, which made everything better.
