KIKISOSO PROMO VIDEO

We wanted to show a little bit of the letterpress printing process in our studio and had this video put together by Rotterdam video journalist and media producer Tim Slobbe.

We would really appreciate your comments and a share on vimeo or any other social media to get it off to a good start and help spread the word about our studio and what we do. READ MORE

NEW ‘B’ IS FOR BIRTHDAY CARDS

Letterpress_Birthday_Card01

Just off the press on Friday, our new funky hand-drawn Birthday cards are, as always, printed on premium quality cotton paper. We wanted to make this card stand out a little more by pairing it with these lovely grey, tissue lined envelopes.

Remember: if you wish to buy and send any of our cards directly, then just go through the buying process as normal but remember to add your message, name and recipients name and address in the ‘message to seller’ area. On receiving your order we will hand-write and post you card directly. Go to our online shop

 

SORRY CARD FOR HIM OR HER… SOMETIMES SOMEONE HAS TO BE WRONG

letterpress sorry card

Letterpress sorry card with pink and taupe tissue lined envelope option. These lovely apology cards are just off the press at kikisoso creative studio. Printed with a great earthy grey achieved by mixing a dark grey and taupe ink, after printing each card was hand finished using a watercolor wash making every card ‘even more ‘ individual. Gmund 100% cotton stock was used for it’s high quality properties and finish and of course we were looking for a slightly off-white appearance rather than the bright white house paper we usually use. The impression into the soft paper can be seen and felt on the fingertips, the real treat of the letterpress print finish.

LETTERPRESS / HAND-PRINTED CHRISTMAS CARDS

Hand-

we have released the new pictures of our Hand-Printed Christmas Cards , they are hand-fed one by one into our antique Golding printing press. Each color needs to be printed separately, so although the outcome is something special that you can feel on your fingertips making it stand out from digitally printed cards, there is a lot of love that goes into the creation of each card, from the initial idea, sketches, the color mixing, paper preparation, printing, cutting, folding and packing. But, we love it and that is why we are here. We are printing short runs of these cards (300 for each design) so the lucky recipient will be delighted to receive what is essentially, a limited addition piece of art on finest quality paper.

Halloween Cards – Letterpress Halloween Grusskarten

Halloween Cards - Letterpress printed by Kikisoso

Jede Karte ist mit ♡ von Hand auf unserer antiken Buchdruck-Andruckpresse auf umweltfreundlichem hochwertigen 100% Baumwoll Papier gedruckt.

Wir haben eine Katze, die auf einem Besen reitet, ein Kind was sich als Gespenst verkleidet, eine Hexe mit einem überdimensionalem Hexenhut, einpaar dösige Fledermäuse, und natürlich dürfen die baumelnden Spinnen nicht fehlen.

Diese Karten sind jetzt in unserem Shop erhältlich. Für unsere deutschen Kunden haben wir uns etwas Besonderes ausgedacht. Nur diese Woche (letzte Bestellung Sonntag den 27.10.2013 bis 13 Uhr GMT) schreiben wir Euren ganz persönlichen Gruß und verschicken es an die gewünschte Adresse. Dieser Service ist kostenlos 😉

Natürlich könnt ihr jederzeit gerne in unser Kölner Studio kommen, um unsere Karten zu erwerben.
