The South Illustrated

We're excited to announce the latest product from Sideshow Press. “The South Illustrated” 2013 calendar was designed exclusively for Garden & Gun. Each calendar page is hand pressed on our pony-sized 1926 letterpress. We illustrated each month with a drawing of a southern staple and paired it with a quote by a southern author. The monthly cards are displayed on a wood veneer mounting plaque with a leather strap for hanging. Each calendar set comes packaged in a burlap bag sewn with a letterpress tag. Needless to say, this was such a fun and rewarding project to have the chance to design something for one of our favorite publications. The calendars, as well as many other bespoke items, are available for purchase through the Garden and Gun Store.

Nautical Baby

We've been excited to share this adorable nautical birth announcement we designed for little Ryder. Ryder's parents came to us with a great idea to use custom made bags out of sail cloth from their families boat. Ryder's initials are embroidered on the bag and a white cloth rope closes the bag. We designed the birth announcement to incorporate their great bag along with a photo and his stats (written in nautical terminology). Congratulations and welcome to the world!
