the bespoke illustrators project + online sale + giveaway!




It is with such great excitement today that we announce the launch of our Bespoke Letterpress Illustrators Project!

Back in May this year, we decided that we wanted to use our letterpress studio to be able to create more then just invitations & stationery. We wanted to be able to use our resources as a launch pad to help young designers & illustrators. To be able to have to their work crafted on a vintage letterpress is usually a dream way beyond reach for most young designers.

So we opened the table for illustrators across the world to submit their work - The only rules were they must be emerging illustrators and they must produce a three colour illustration.

This was a chance for young illustrators to get their first big break, to be commissioned and to share their love of letterpress. And my oh my, we were overwhelmed by hundreds of entries!

Our little project turned into the most amazing and exciting project we have tackled to date. We are so excited by our illustrators enthusiasm, and we are tickled pink to be able to promote them and do our little bit to help their careers.

10800 foot treadled impressions, 1800 sheets of cotton paper and 30 new ink colours later we are finally able to launch our 10 new prints. Each print is a limited edition run of 150 prints and are available in our shop for $65.00 each.

And to celebrate, we have two lots of exciting news to share. The first is that between now and the 16th of October, enter the code SALE in our online store and you will receive 10% off our entire range of letterpress goodies.

And finally - the news you have waited for... The giveaway of all giveaways!! We have one amazing prize to giveaway - The entire collection of our Bespoke Illustrators Project is up for grabs. That's 10 prints valued at $650 worth of letterpress loveliness for one lucky winner!

To enter the draw, all we ask is that you view the range via or website or shop and that you comment on this blog post and let us know which one you like the best. Over the next 10 days we will also be featuring one illustrator per day here on our blog where you can find out more about the illustrator and see their print in more detail.

Each comment to this blog post will receive one entry. If you tweet about this post we will give you an extra entry, and if you blog about our new project & giveaway we will give you a whopping 5 entries. Please do just let us know in your comment if you have twittered and/or blogged. Entries close on Midnight the 15th of October, with the winner announced on the 16th of October.

Oh sweet friends, we hope you will love our new project as much as we do!

  2. What lovely gorgeous illustrations.
    My fave is also the "Geraldine & Walter In Love"

    ReplyDelete
  3. WOW!!! When you said "giveaway of giveaways" you really meant it! My fave? I'm really digging “Honey In Sunshine” by Nancy Mungcal.

    “Christophers Ears” by Chelsey Freyta is just about as sweet as it gets, too!

    ReplyDelete
  4. Oooh great way to start a Monday!!! "Her Love's a Pony" is so cute I can't resist!

    ReplyDelete
  5. Honey in Sunshine is even more amazing in real life. I managed to get one when Bespoke made it to Sydney for Young Blood, and it never fails to get a response from visitors.

    I think I'm going to have to make more room on the wall (and find some more frames), Kirstal Melsons work is looking very tempting.

    Congrats to the team on the great new range, definitely deserving of a link in my next update :)

  6. These are gorgeous! My favourite is Jo Barsley's "Yes I Dream of Butterflies" - I've posted a picture of it and written about the collection and giveaway on my blog too!

  25. Oh wow, wonderful! My favourite is probably the vintage chairs (particularly the yellow version), but Honey in Sunshine is a close second, and honestly I think they're all charming.

  32. This is an absolutely fantastic prize! The main print that literally took my breath away was 'Her Love's A Pony' by Kristal Melson. It is so adorable and heart warming, it takes you back to a place within your youth where dreams and reality were blurred and any fantasy you conjured could come true. It's about believing and loving. I really think it's precious. :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. I think They website is better. It's very good for viewing, It's clear. IF only the picture can be more bigger.
    If I get to chose, I would like to have
    A MOTLEY BREW or
    GERALDINE & WALTER IN LOVE or
    THE SMELL OF THE SEA.
    Well, it's very hard to chose though.I'love them all.
    I'll blog about this but my blog is still very new, anyway..I'll do my best to scream out to the world.
    Thanks !

    ReplyDelete

  50. I am so in love with this project - I truly love all of them. If I had to pick just one favorite, Her Love's a Pony would have to be it. It's so whimsical and I just adore unicorns.

  115. I'm sure I'm not the only bird-lover out there (I go nuts over anything with a bird design, it's ridiculously on trend but I just love them!) and my easy favourite is "GERALDINE & WALTER IN LOVE". As one half of two newlyweds, this illustration would be a wonderful addition to our home and I'd love to give it to my husband as a 'paper' anniversary present!

    Thanks for this post, I'm so inspired by all the talent out there...

  175. My 4 year old daughter Frida has discovered the joy of ponies in the last 12 months and we are shortly moving to a farm so my children can live with their horses and for us to uncoil the complexity of urban living. So 'Her love's a pony' is certainly our favourite! What a beautiful collection of delicately executed, ethereal prints you have assembled - congratulations! They perfectly reflect where my mind is at!

    ReplyDelete

  192. They are all beautiful and full of wonderment!! It is so hard and almost cruel to choose one to be my favourite, but if I had to go through such a torturous task, I'd say "Alliance". The girl looks exactly like my little sister and when I first saw it, my heart nearly stopped!!

    ReplyDelete
  193. I am looking forward to these feature illustrators series. Very inspiring!

    ReplyDelete
  197. there is no way in the world i could choose between these gorgeous pieces - not only are they each so unique, elegant, and beautiful, but they look so amazing together.
    this would be an incredible prize to win, especially for me at the moment - my beloved teacup collection fell from my wall and smashed earlier this year, and there is a sad gap where it used to be. i'd love to fill it with art as lovely as this!

    ReplyDelete
  198. A tricky choice but my favourite is 'a motley brew' as I'm British and love all things tea-related. What a fantastic project, makes me want to seek out more.
