Chalk Mural at Handsome Biscuit

If you’re local to Norfolk, then you’ve probably made the pilgrimage to Handsome Biscuit to enjoy their delicious sweet potato biscuits piled high with southern goodness. For those who don’t know, they call adding an egg to your biscuit, “adding some sunshine.” Thus, “We got your sunshine, even on a rainy day.” They are a […]

La Luna Screen Print

I’ve been obsessed with the moon lately. For some reason I’ve taken notice of it more this year. I even took the evening to watch the blue moon rise last Friday. So I feel like this was the perfect time to release our newest print, La Luna! I had been wanting to do this print […]

New Business Cards

Next time you see us in person, be sure to grab one of our new business cards. I was definitely ambitious with the two color design/screen print on both sides but they turned out pretty rad. Even the imperfections add character to each card. I’m trying to get better about documenting my process, so there […]

Revamped Maple & Belmont Website

It’s been a while since our last post because for most of June I was eyeball deep in code to redesign our website. “What?!

We’re gearing back up to teach more hand-lettering workshops this year. The next one is just a couple weeks away on May 31st at Kitsch. It’s a morning workshop, so we thought it might be a good idea to provide doughnuts and coffee to get the day started right. Also, I kind of have a […]

The focus will be on drop caps but our tips will be applicable to anything you design. If you’re in […]

The Holidays

I know it’s been a while since our last post but I wanted to give everyone a heads up about the new holiday items we have available and the upcoming shows and markets that we’re apart of. This year we revamped the holiday cards and gift tags. For the cards, we came up with two […]

Featured in the Summer issue of Distinction Magazine!

Near the beginning of this year, we received an email from Gabriella Souza, a writer at Distinction Magazine, asking us if we would be interested in doing an interview. I literally had to read the email 10 times before the awesomeness could fully sink in. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Distinction, it […]
