We couldn’t resist doing another special edition Col-o-ring for the San Francisco Pen Show. This year Bob and I went all out. First, we punned like we did with the Chicag-o-ring. This is the Cal-o-ring! It features a bright orange California orange in the background and Bob hit it out of the park by adding a blind emboss, wood grain texture to the covers to really give this Col-o-ring books, I mean Cal-o-ring books the feeling of vintage fruit crates. The lettering was inspired by vintage travel postcards to continue the feeling of pen show adventures.
Pick-up your Cal-o-ring at the San Francisco Pen Show for $10 starting Friday, August 23 at The Well-Appointed Desk/Skylab Letterpress table or have a friend mule one back for you. These will only be available in San Francisco. Very limited supply available! Get them before they are all sold out.
