New shop in town....

As most of you know we took part in the amazing Shoestring Collective pop up shop, which closed it's doors two weeks ago. But we are delighted to announce that we will be supplying a new pop up shop currently open in the Kloof Street Lifestyles Centre. It is called PRESENTspace and will be open until February next year. I think it is a great place to do Christmas shopping, as it has long opening hours.  Have a look at their facebook

Another wonderful shop that has just opened, that we are supplying is called SAM (South African Market). It opened it's doors last week and is situated at 107 Bree street, just above La Parada.
They have a whole host of South African designers involved and it's a very cool space.
They have a wide range of our stock, including some of our last 2014 Artist's Almanacs.

Our new Logo

It has been 6 exciting months since Essie Letterpress went on maternity leave, but all good things come to and end.
To mark our return we decided to give ourselves a bit of a spit and polish. So we got hold of Jordan Metclaf, one of South Africa's premier typographers, to spin some of his magic our way.

The results came our clean and crisp with a lovely classical whimsy splashed all over it.

We hope you like it, we sure do.
