Project Description

This year our Washington, DC-based design studio wanted to focus on a holiday promotion that came from our personal experience; awkward holiday happy hour conversations. We produced a set of 6 unique, letterpresses, foil-stamped coasters with hand-lettered phrases that give the user some tipsy tips.

Production Lesson(s)

Hand lettering is a labor of love and always takes longer then you think. We also learned a lot about shipping rates this holiday season! ”
