Chicago Print Crawl

Chicago Print Crawl

Steel Petal Press is thrilled to be participating in this year’s Chicago Print Crawl organized by Spudnik Press.

Spudnik Press is a community print shop located in West Town Chicago. They offer classes, workshops, private lessons and field trip tours for novices. For more intermediate printers, Spudnik rents studio space, and offers residencies and fellowships. Our very own printing assistant, Dan, recently went through their studio fellowship program.

The print crawl takes place on Saturday May 11th from 11am – 5pm. Steel Petal Press will be hosting an Open House of sorts. The presses will be running all day. Visitors coming into the shop will have a chance to ask questions while Dan prints. While we always have the presses on display at Steel Petal Press, this will be a unique chance to delve in and ask questions as we demo while we work.

Gift Guide For Plant People!

Spring has sprung! The temperature is warming up and the sun is starting to shine more and more. This means we can kick our plant obsession into high gear! We know we aren’t alone in our love for all things leafy and so take a look at some of our top plant picks from our retail shop that make great gifts for any plant people you love dearly! Here’s our Gift Guide For Plant People:

Poppy & Lavender Garden Kits, Modern Sprout ($15) – These garden kits make gardening easy because they include everything you need to grow the flowers right in the container! They are a great way to add a bit of the outdoors to any small indoor space. As an added bonus, Modern Sprout is a local Chicago company (support small, woohoo!)

Self Watering Animal Planters, Noted ($15) – These guys have been a very popular item since they hit our shelves. They come in a variety of plant types and adorable animal shapes sure to bring a smile to anyone! Additionally, they use an enclosed straw or felt “tongue” to water themselves which means they require little to no effort (even better!)

“Plants Get Me” Women’s Ankle Socks, BQ ($10.50) – Who doesn’t love a good sock? No one, that’s who! Plant people included. That’s why our “Plants Get Me” socks make a great gift. They combine the love of plants with a great novelty gift idea!

Assorted Succulent Planters, Natural Life ($15) – Our selection of succulent planters from Natural Life are as cute as they are small. They come with faux plants/dirt inside but can easily be converted for real use. We think they make a great little accent for desks or window sills (and I’m sure plant people would agree!)

Boys With Plants Book, Chronicle/Hachette ($14.95) – If you need a perfect tongue and cheek gift for a plant lover, look no further! This hilarious book contains photographs of attractive men alongside their favorite plants. We’re almost positive there’s no quicker way to a plant person’s heart than this book, haha!

Alas, we have come to the end of Gift Guide For Plant People! Be sure to shop these gift ideas and much more at our retail location! Additionally, you can check out all Steel Petal Press handmade items on our website anytime – day or night!

Christmas gifts are all about buying something your friends, family, and loved ones are sure to enjoy. However, what do you get a person who considers their furry family as important as their human one (which is pretty easy to do, let’s be honest!). Here’s a simple solution: check out our Holiday Gift Guide For Pet People! It’s sure to have the perfect gift for any cat and/or dog (or BOTH) lovers in your life!

Pet Lover Gift Guide

Socks:
Socks make a great gift for anyone but we have some hilarious styles that feature hilarious sentiments for feline or canine fans! Better yet, they come in at only $10.50-$11.50!

Puzzles:
Puzzles make the perfect cold weather activity because you don’t have the leave the comfort of your warm home to do it! However, a puzzle fit for a pet person must include cats or dogs, of course! No worries, we have both! 🙂

Tea Towels:
Tea Towels make can make a fun and funny home decor statement. Steel Petal Press carries a variety of styles from Blue Q with laughable cat and dog quotes. Better yet, they’re only $14!

Cat Mug Garden:
These are new to our brick & mortar location this year but make a great for cat lovers (or plant lovers!) This mug is a small hydroponic garden which can then be used to enjoy a favorite beverage once the plant removed. Plus, look at that cute kitty design…what’s not to like!

Cat/Dog Butt Magnets:
These funny butt magnets, featuring both dog and cat butts, have been a fan favorite every holiday season at our store!

Cards:
Steel Petal Press makes a variety of awesome holiday cards but our “Meowy Catmus“, which comes in singles ($6) or boxed ($16) is the perfect combination of punny and kitty.

We are at the end of the Holiday Gift Guide For Pet People which means you have the difficult task of picking which awesome suggestion you want to buy (sorry, not sorry!) But, on the bright side, you know your favorite pet person is sure to love it no matter what!

Happy shopping!

Holiday Gift Guide For Book Worms!

A good book warms the soul which can be a difficult task to do during the cold temperatures of the holiday season. Steel Petal Press knows how awesome reading is but how difficult it can be to shop for a loved one who is always nose deep in a book! Check out our Holiday Gift Guide For Book Worms for gift ideas that are sure to capture the attention of your favorite reader 🙂

Bookmarks:
We here at Steel Petal Press love reading so much that we created our very own collection of letterpressed bookmarks ($3)! Witty and sassy (like all things SPP), these bookmarks make perfect stocking stuffers for any book fanatic! Some of the top sellers are the “John Waters”, “Awesome People Read”, and our new “Stopping Point” bookmarks!

Magnets:
As you may have seen in our previous gift guides, Steel Petal Press makes some pretty kick ass magnets for some pretty kick ass types of people and book lovers are no different! Our “Awesome People Read” magnet ($6) matches with our top selling bookmark style but also makes a great addition to any gift for someone who just thinks reading is awesome (like us!)

Socks:
The perfect way to read a book is making sure you’re cozy as heck, right? RIGHT. So, picking out a perfect (and hilarious) pair of socks for your favorite bookworm is a great gift idea! Blue Q socks are our personal favorites here at Steel Petal Press and at only $10.50-$11.50 they won’t break the bank! Heck, they even made some specifically for this occasion (“Fuck off, I’m Reading” socks!!)

Mugs & Tea Infusers:
Another perfect pairing for reading books is…tea, of course! We’ve got a large selection of mugs that are sure to get a laugh including a “Book Nerd” mug ($16) which is fitting for any loud and proud book nerd. In addition to that, Steel Petal Press has plenty of hilarious tea infusers from cats, to dogs, to even flamingos and all with a $10-$15 price range. We believe that even the simplest tasks like making tea and reading a book should be fun!

Hopefully our Holiday Gift Guide for Book Worms inspired some gift-giving ideas. Rest assured that with these gifts from Steel Petal Press, your beloved book worm will be filled with holiday joy!
