We couldn’t wait until spring to see you all again, so we’re turning up the heat, opening our doors, and inviting you in for a wintery helping of letterpress goodness.
Friday, December 6th we are once again joining forces with our basement neighbors, Westwerk Design and Hennepin Made to host a basement block party of fabled proportions. Hennepin Made is holding their annual sample sale, Westwerk is partying down with their recently refreshed identity, and, as per tradition, Studio On Fire will be letterpress printing a poster for you to take home (possible holiday re-gift?).
Be sure to come hungry, as Natedogs will still be serving his quality wieners, Dogwood Coffee will be crafting beverages to thaw your Grinch-y heart, and we’ll have several beers on tap. It’s a family friendly-ish event (we’ll have a kids activity) that starts at 5pm and runs until we give up. So grab a coworker, a friend, and/or your mom and come on down.
1621 East Hennepin Avenue, Minneapolis MN 55414
Enter the building on 16th Avenue SE, proceed downstairs.
We put this up as a Facebook event, too, if you’re into that.

With Memorial Day weekend staring us in the face, it only made sense to share this bbq related project. If you live in the Twin Cities you have probably come across the stylish orange Natedog’s food cart, stocked with quality wieners, tasty hand crafted mustards, and manned by the friendly proprietor, Nate Beck. We were lucky to have him at our open house in February and recently letterpress printed the labels for Nate’s honey-spiced mustard, now bottled and available for purchase.
Holmberg Design Co, who we most recently worked with on these Dogwood Coffee labels, is behind the Natedog’s identity and label design. Letterpress printed with two inks on an existing label stock, these were kisscut after printing with a custom made die that mimics the bottle shape.
CBS recently ran a nice feature of on Natedog’s that can be viewed here.
