Smudge Ink to host a holiday sale for the Boston Food Bank on November 1

Our friends at Smudge Ink are teaming up with Boston area vendors again this year for another Holiday Sip & Shop event! If you’re in the Boston area, visit Smudge on Thursday, November 1st from 4-8pm in their Charlestown shop for an evening of pre-holiday shopping, sipping and socializing. You’ll get the opportunity to purchase products from some great local companies, and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Greater Boston Food Bank. We donated the photopolymer plates for the letterpress posters used to promote the event, and were so impressed with the final outcome!

A portion of the proceeds from the 2012 Smudge Ink Sip & Shop will be donated to the Boston Food Bank

Check out the photos below from the 2011 Smudge Sip & Shop event and don’t miss out on the fun!

Buy local: Holiday Letterpress Event at Smudge Ink to Benefit Boston Food Bank

We’re excited to share an event that Smudge Ink (one of our long time letterpress friends) is putting on next week. They’re teaming up with local vendors to put on a holiday sale, and will be donating a portion of the proceeds to the Greater Boston Food Bank! The Holiday Sip + Shop event will take place on Thursday, November 3rd (that’s a week from today!) from 4-8pm at their shop in historic Charlestown, Massachusetts. Because we think it’s so cool that Smudge Ink is supporting their local food bank with their event, we donated the plate for their letterpress posters, and we’ve gotta say — they came out pretty awesome, don’t ya think?

If you’re in the Boston area, be sure to stop by! There will be a drawing for a gift basket filled with awesome prizes like a calendar, gift wrap, boxed notes, holiday cards and coasters from Smudge Ink; a 2-box subscription from Boston Organics for home-delivery of organic produce; a soy candle from Crash, plus soap goodies from Stella Marie, a few bottles of craft brews from Pretty Things Beer + Ale , and a special gift from 2-Fresh-Threads!

Smudge will also be giving away a 4-pack of these amazing letterpress coasters to their first 50 customers, so be sure to stop by and support these local businesses!
