I Kinda Like It Here

After an arduous wait, we can finally write an update to the "Urban Sprawls Under a Cup" post from waaaay back in September. Since then we have gone through many rounds of prototypes to test wood types, line weights and rastering profiles, and have just received the first production pieces for our newest project, "I Kinda Like It Here". Coasters inspired by, and made in, Canada.

Vancouver, Winnipeg, Toronto, and Ottawa

Since the last post we added a coaster for downtown Vancouver to make it a set of four. The coasters are cut out of 3mm birch plywood, maintaining two small connections to the background. When pushed out, these tabs are easily broken in order to free the coasters for use.

We are currently lining up retail outlets, and setting up our online store, so check back for more information in the upcoming week!
