Paper Chase Press, the LA based printing and bookmaking firm that's made amazing stationary, signage and even luggage tags for brands like Kelly Wearstler, Tomboy Style, J Brand, LACMA, MOCA and just about any cool company out there currently, launches the 3rd installment of their collaboration series this week.
Kicking off this series is a collab with decorated design firm, Commune (think DTLA's Ace Hotel), which launches this Thursday October 16th.
Following shortly are projects with Hopewell Workshop (out October 23rd) and Bing Bang jewelry (out October 28th).
The Commune Design collab is a small collection of writing pads based on traditional reporter's notebooks. They're no brainers to stash in basically ever bag you own and a nice departure from tapping out every single thought on a smart phone. The notebooks are approximately 90 pages long, have the word "rad" embossed on the cover and come in an array of attention grabbing colors such as, Orbit Orange, Rocket Red, Terrestrial Teal and Juniper Java.
