Between chipboard, plantable seed paper, and rubber paper (made of 100% recycled tires) this invitation is by far the most green invite we've created to date. It was a great challenge to bring all of these materials and textures together, we used hand drawn type and illustrations to tie all of the various pages together. We're currently working on all of the event materials (some of which include) hand painted table cloths on organic cotton, plantable menus, and green screen graphics!

Our first print run on the new press! We printed these materials for a photo shoot for The Lee Brothers and Kiawah's Legends Magazine last week. Turned out great. We were even able to print large solid areas, which is a first for Sideshow Press! Look for the full article next Spring.
After years of hunting for the perfect Vandercook No. 4 Proof press, we finally found one. Last week we rolled her right into our new space...and she is a beauty! It's 1,050 lbs of pure love. We can't wait to start pressin'!

Sewn leather and embossed luggage tags were mailed in a custom wrapped box to guests for our most recent client getting married in Keswick, Virginia. The bride and groom are avid travelers and are hosting a destination wedding - so the luggage tag was a perfect fit.
