The 6,000 mile Humback southbound migration is underway, and these majestic beauties are passing through the Monterey Bay as you read these words. ⁣ ⁣⁣ Most commonly spotted if you head to the coast today, Gray whales and Humpback 🐋whales. Humpbacks are coined “the acrobat of the sea” for their incredible breaching and are also known for their unique mating songs. ⁣ ⁣⁣ #respectthesea #whalemigration #whale #montereybay #foilpress #humpbackwhales #humpbackwhale

Winter southbound migration is underway, and these majestic beauties are passing through the Monterey Bay as you read these words.⁣ ⁣ Most commonly spotted if you head to the coast today, Gray whales and Humpback 🐋whales. To see the rare sperm whale would be an honor. They swim further out and have a significantly smaller population.⁣ ⁣ #respectthesea #whalemigration #spermwhale #montereybay #foilpress #ebony #colorplanpaper

FOIL⁣ ⁣ Did you know that there is no ink on our posters? ⁣⁣ The process we use to print the posters is called foil press or foil stamping. A thin sheet of foil (think aluminum foil but much thinner) is rolled out in between the paper and the copper plate and then with a mixture of heat and pressure, the foil is pressed into the paper. Many people get that the gold is foil because it’s metalic, but the white of the text and the third background color is also foil. Foil comes in metalic, matte, gloss and pearl finishes in a myriad of colors. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ We love the beauty of the process. All of our prints require three passes, one for each color of foil, the possible combinations of paper and foils is seemingly endless and really inspiring. ⁣⁣ ⁣ For the last six years we have used the same gold foil across all of our posters. This week for the first time ever we are releasing a new gold, check if you can spot it here!⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ #process #foilpress #greatwesternfoil #foil #designprocess #knowyourmaterials #honeyourcraft
