Shop Talk – In The Works At 7 Ton Co.

7 Ton Co. : Bojack Coffee Co.

Barry Walton of Bojack Coffee Co., a coffee roaster based in South Carolina, is the best conversationalist (and coffee roaster). We never tire of seeing and talking to him and his crew. When he asked us to design packaging for Bojack, inspired by his grandfather, we jumped at the chance with a modern meets vintage design. The bags were letterpress printed with metallic gold and a matte metallic silver ink. 

7 Ton Co. : Bike Love

Asheville on Bikes hosted their annual Bike Love event last month, and boy was it a blast. Great food, great beer, great music. The design inspiration was Grandma's ski suit. Pictured here are the stickers and posters we designed. The entire package included stickers, spoke cards, posters, membership letters, social media icons, and sponsorship info. 

7 Ton Co. : Blackmor CPA

Blackmor, CPA provides professional accounting services to hospice and home health companies, a job that requires experience, knowledge, and a high level of trust. Our challenge was to create an identity that reflected the gravity of the job at hand, while also being approachable and memorable. In addition to the logo, the new branding was carried into their business cards, stationery, and web icons. Seen here are two sided white on black business cards (left) and letterpress printed stationery (right).

7 Ton Co. : Lake Print

We cannot see our reflection in running water. It is only in still water that we can see.

The mountain lake print is our newest shop edition. These 8"x10" prints are letterpress printed in five runs of greens, blues, and grey an available HERE.

7 Ton Co. : Marketplace Restaurant

Chef William Dissen of The Market Place Restaurant needed some branded stationery, so we set to work designing an A2 card with their logo and vintage radish drawing. Perfect for a quick hello or thank you in the mail. 

7 Ton Co. : Penland Catalog

How great is this cover of Penland School of Crafts Summer catalog?! We love seeing the many faces of past students, all shot by Penland Resident Artist Mercedes Jelinek. It reminds us just how many people Penland impacts. Summer session at Penland School of Crafts begins May 28th. Grab a catalog, or go online to see what's in store.

7 Ton Co. : Around the Shop

The production side of the studio has been busy this season, mixing ink, cranking the press, choosing perfectly matched envelopes. 

7 Ton Co. : Michael England

One of the more unique wedding invitations so far this season has been this two color letterpress printed, scored, and die cut invitation suite designed by Michael England. We printed this two color design on bright cotton paper with contrasting maroon envelopes.

7 Ton Co. : Maslow

You might notice this little cutie around the shop. Maslow became our newest addition (via Jenn and Ritchie) in December!
