Bonjour! Just popping in with a quick update to the #52HandLettered Project. This weeks’ prompt was “Rainy Day Activities,” and I don’t know about you, but I don’t find myself doing many activities on rainy days at all. Something about the gloominess is very demotivating to me. So here it is, my preferred rainy day […]

Oh August, you hot little son-of-a-gun. I am both excited and sad that you’re here. I’ve always had a fickle relationship with the month, really. I think it started when I was a kid – the back-to-school stuff comes out in full force in August and you’d panic about how little of your precious […]

It’s July! Can you believe it! Summer is officially here and I can gauge that clearly by how many popsicles/beers I currently have at my disposal. In an studio without air conditioning, you just gotta do what you can to survive. I know it’s been crickets around here lately and so I thought I’d jump […]

Mobile photo taking/posting/editing is serious business, and the tools people are using to perfect their photos are also becoming more serious. Back in the old days (like, 2012?) the in-house Instagram editing options would have done the trick. A little vignetting here, a little tilt-shift there, and boom – a perfect Instagram photo was finished. […]
Let’s just pretend that I didn’t completely abandon the entire month of April for the #52HandLettered project. What can I say? Life got busy. Hashtag priorities. Jumping right back in for week 18. The prompt is “a date to remember” and I wasn’t exactly sure what way to take it. But here is what I […]

Instagram is the place where I spend 95% of my social media efforts. For peeps like me where everything is visually oriented, Instagram just makes the most sense. There is a community there (both fans and peers!) that are able to see your brand and aesthetic quickly and easily. So yes, Instagram all the way. […]

Back on board with the #52HandLetteredProject this week! The prompt was “words to motivate” and the first thing I thought of was this old proverb. What’s your favorite motivational quote? Happy Easter, everyone! — Gillian

It’s Saturday so I’m just one day shy of being too late for this week’s #52handlettered project! The prompt for this week was ‘everyday essentials’ and it didn’t take me very long to pick mine. I think I could get along okay on a desert island as long as I have some coffee and mascara […]

How’s this for consistency? Go blog AWOL for 2 entire weeks and then right back at you with two posts. In a row. I know, I know. Contain your excitement! After missing a couple of weeks I’m back with the #52handlettered project. You can check out the deets of this project in last week’s submission, or check […]

A friend of ours was over at our place on the weekend and he happened to be wearing sweater that was pretty close in color to Marsala, the Pantone Color of the Year for 2015. Me, being the weirdo for these sorts of things, decided I should inform him of how on trend he is. […]
Just stopping in to post my crack at Week 2 of the 52 Hand Lettered Project. You can check out the deets of this project in last week’s submission, or check out pen + peplum for more info! This week’s prompt is a summer love list. This week has been particularly cold in NY (it’s […]

Oh, hi 2015. Nice to finally acknowledge that you’re here! What a way to start this year – it’s been nuts around this place! Some exciting stuff (more new products for the shop! some big web design projects that I’m cranking through!) and some not so exciting stuff (jury duty – whomp whomp). I’m still […]

I realize there are only few precious shopping days left before Christmas and I am wayyyyy behind on this 2014 gift guide. And I also realize I’m like the 203428324th blog to put together one of these suckers. So just incase all the other gift guides out there have you still searching for the perfect […]
I feel like right after all the Thanksgiving leftovers are eaten up, Christmas begins in proper form. While this does not mean I haven’t already hopped on the holiday bandwagon, I no longer have to feel shame for being full-on Christmas crazy. I’m coming out of the closet! So with all of my decorations and […]

Hello all! Can you believe it’s December already? I can’t believe how fast this year is coming to a close. 2014 whizzed by in a flash and I’m already scheduling things in my 2015 planner. Eeep! Christmas is gonna be here soon and before I know it we’ll be smack dab in 2015 and I’ll […]

My name is Gillian and I’m a font-a-holic. (Hiiiiiiii Gilliannnnn.) Fonts are really is a weakness of mine. I must must must set myself a monthly font budget (oh god even typing that out makes my problem more real), or else I’d just blow all of my earnings BUYING ALL THE FONTS. So seeing as […]
I can’t believe it’s already Thursday and this is my first post of the week! Time flies, especially this time of year. I’ve been doing a lot of digital work recently, which has been a refreshing change from the print projects I’ve been working on for the last couple of weeks prior. Although it means a […]
Happy Friday! I’m stopping in to share a beautiful bohemian wedding invite set that I recently drooled over stumbled upon while visiting one of my favorite blogs in the universe, Oh So Beautiful Paper. Are you guys obsessed with that blog as much as I am? It’s just filled with beautiful paper and stationery sets […]

Happy Friday! I write to you almost relieved of the nearly 12 000 (!!!) cards I have been ripping through in the last week. Let me tell you, when I envisioned operating a little print shop, I kind of overlooked the tangible nature of print products. I live digitally! Most of my files and projects […]
Happy Friday, guys! I thought I’d stop with with a little update of the latest card set I’ve added to the shop. I’m really excited about these! But first, if you’ll indulge me, a little background to these cards. When I was a kid, I never had any ideas about weddings. While other little girls […]

(*Insert joke about white girls and their fondness for a pumpkin spice latte here*) I will admit it. I have no shame. I am a pumpkin-flavored-anything enthusiast and would happy fulfill any stereotypes you might have about the drink. PSL is not just a thing, a drink. It’s a season. And I, for one, am […]

I am a huge sucker for hand drawn fonts. Truly. The way hand lettering can convey a comfortable, thoughtful message is really unmatched. It’s my go to strategy when I know I want to cultivate a cozy yet elegant design. Enter Briar Rose from OnTheSpotStudio. It’s perfect. The delicate balance between retro elements and modern versatility. […]
One of the best things (or maybe the best thing) about working for yourself is setting your own schedule. It is tremendously liberating having a schedule that I dictate and have complete control over. I just love that moment in the morning – I’m barely just awake, eyes still closed, and I do a quick […]
Count me in as one of the people that agrees that fall is the best season. I think there are a lot of reasons I feel this way. The change in temperature, the introduction of pumpkin into every single food item ever created, adding extra blankets to the bed – it’s all good! And don’t […]

Ah, here it is! Palmer Street Press’ inaugural post. (Are you allowed to use that phrase for things definitely not presidential in nature? Question for the ages.) Let me tell you a bit about why this little blog sprang up and what’s in store. I’m Gillian. (Soft G, like giraffe.) I’m a full-time designer and […]
