Vive La Tote
When your personal library is as out of hand as mine, you never seem to have enough bags to lug around your lettering and typography treasures. So, after penciling some custom roundhand for a recent Print for Good poster, I got the idea to have the lettering printed on the side of a handy tote. The fellas at Awesome Dudes Printing in Philly painstakingly plastered my Vive La Plume penmanship in pliable white plastisol ink on black 6 oz. 100% cotton fabric. The 14.5″ W × 15.5″ H carryall is lightweight yet sturdy with 22-inch long straps. Head on over to the T&L Store to grab one of these limited edition hand-printed totes.
