Say It with Western Editions Letterpress

Something good from the neighborhood

In the Tanner household, Danny never met a problem (ice cube diets, goldfish bathing) he couldn’t solve.

In the real world, sometimes you’re just in big trouble, mister.

When the right words escape you, whimsical letterpress creations from Western Editions are like paper versions of a laugh track. The brainchild of two friends currently residing in the former Tanner sisters’ hood, the line successfully merges clever captioning with an old-fashioned aesthetic.

Nevada natives Erin Fong and Taylor Reid fell in love with letterpress during college. After various solo efforts and creative stints, the two joined forces to crank out cards and special projects — all crafted using an elusive Vandercook Proofing Press.

Want to tell someone she’s a gem or invite a crush to Makeoutville? You got it, dude. The duo also customizes everything from baby announcements to wedding invitations.

Everywhere you look there’s a card.

Available at Lavish, 508 Hayes Street, between Octavia and Laguna Streets (415-565-0540 or shoplavish.com), $4-$6 for cards; project prices by request. To see styles, go to westerneditions.com.
