This week is all about celebrations!
Yesterday grafolita® celebrated its first anniversary, today O Editorial - A blog with lots of inspiration from great things made in portugal and abroad - is two years old.
To celebrate this second year O Editorial launched a new website and a collection of special edition products created by portuguese brands. All products are made with traditional production techniques, top quality and care for every detail.
This collection includes a gorgeous combination of a grafolita® Accordion Notebook in a special combination of colors, a bag created by Ideal&Co and a Stool by Boa Safra.
It’s true, one year has passed by since I presented grafolita® for the first time to the world. Well, one year and one month. But this first year has been so intense, so many things started to happen, that I didn’t have time to “celebrate” at the right time.
It has been a hard work year, trying deal with my daily job and grafolita® (evening and weekends and holidays), but an amazing one. It’s unbelievable how things grew. From one notebook I ended this first year with 7 different models. Hurray!
But since I really want to mark this period, and share my happiness with all of you, I decided to give you 20% discount on your orders (no shipping included) from today to October 25th. I Hope you enjoy it!
Just enter the discount code at checkout code: 1YEAR20OFF.
A última compra on-line foi um destes postais criados pela Sabrina do blog Small Caps. O segundo postal tive a sorte de o receber como presente da própria. São os dois lindíssimos!
Para além do design, o que me chamou a atenção, foi a forma como a Sabrina os criou. Cada letra foi construída juntando diferentes ornamentos tipográficos. Devo dizer, uma tarefa nada fácil!

My last letterpress product purchase was one of these two postcards printed by letterpress, from Small Caps created by Sabrina. The second one I happily received as a gift (thank you Sabrina). Both are lovely!
Aside from the design, what caught my attention was the way she did it, creating each letter with different ornamental pieces. A hard work, I must say!
