Make 100 : Mr Cup EPHEMERA TYPE PROJECT / posters & postcards
8 days ago – Mon, Jan 20, 2020 at 11:42:27 AM

I hope you are fine and enjoy 2020 with your calendar. If you did not get it yet, I hope it will arrive soon as everything was sent before Christmas, but there are always mistakes and problems. Please send all requests to Anaïs at mrcupshop@gmail.com if needed.

I just launch a new project for posters and postcards. You can see it here.

Based on my collection of Ephemera, I designing a complete alphabet and number in 36 days to follow the 36 days of type online challenge. I want to bring these to real printed objects: posters and postcards. Each poster will be high quality printed, limited to 100 and numbered.


Thanks for support.

The past weeks have been... epic! Printing took the time it needs for a project like this! I do not share more photos here as I know some of you like to discover it when they have it in hands.

Today, I post the latest packages. I started last week. I need to drove 8 hours to get the calendars from the printer, due to strikes in France! You should have or will receive a message from the delivery service called "Dilivengo", it tracked with your email. If you did not get the message and want to track, you can contact Anaïs on the shop email mrcupshop@gmail.com.

IMPORTANT: the EPHEMERID playing cards are not ready! We have postponed the printing of the tuck cases in January, but I do not want you to wait for the calendar so they will come separately. If you order anything else, other playings cards, artists proof, printing plates, all these are sent. 

If you did not get it in time and want it for Christmas, I propose you to download these pdf to print and present on the big day :

Standard: https://www.dropbox.com/s/073l6r2p7ege20h/2020%20christmas%20standard.pdf?dl=0

So, I am now in my parent's house and everybody is running around me to prepare Christmas dinner! 

Thank you all for the amazing support and for making this project another great success. 


PS: for any request, please email Anaïs at mrcupshop@gmail.com, always easier than comments.

Past weeks have been crazy and it always a pleasure to see the project coming to life! I visit Studio Pression to take photos and also enjoy the printing process. I decided to do some changes to the hot foil/paper combinations but it is for the good of the project! 

Here come some of the photos...

But printing was just the first part after we need to organize all the pages. So I would be able to post the first orders next week. 

BUT, sadly today a big strike has started in France. I hope it won't be as bad as last year "Gilets Jaunes" events, but for now on it is "illimited" which means what it means: no idea when it ends... I will prepare all the packages and ship them when I can.

Thanks for the amazing support.
