fresh & pressed

November 28, 2012

Julia Brown Farill is tech savvy, but she is devoted to an old-fashioned printing method.

At Red Bird Ink, Farill produces stationery, art prints, wedding invitations and coasters by hand on printing presses that sit in her print shop in Olde Town Conyers.

Farill started her business in 2004 with one, 100-year-old printing press. Since then, she has bought three more.

For her designs, Farill draws on her art background and a degree in landscape architecture from Virginia Tech. Popular designs include landscapes and plants, such as ferns, ginkgo leaves, birch trees and red berries (below).

Farill also produces coasters in 17 different designs and in eight colors, such as silver gray, coral, blue and several shades of green.

Perfect for a holiday hostess gift, the “Cheers!” coasters are fun, and the cozy-looking knit coasters will warm up a crowd.

But the bold “numbers” coasters (pictured above) have been a year-round hit. With numbers from 0 through 9, the white coasters feature black ink.

The super-thick coasters won’t run if they get wet. Popular for table numbers at weddings, the coasters are $20 for a set of 10.

Other coasters are $10 for a set of four. The newest set of number coasters features double digits (01 to 20). A set of 20 is $40.

Find Farill’s art prints ($20 to $140), clever and sweet cards ($4.50 each), stationery ($18 for six) and coasters at www.redbirdink.com.
