We absolutely adore when customers let us know how happy they are with our products. That being said, we become giddy with joy when a customer sends us photos of our work in their new environment. Recently, we did a custom 3′ x 4′ poster for a lovely fella’ down in Texas using our city designs for both Houston and Seattle. He was so thrilled with it that he set us a little photo collage of the framed poster in his sleeping quarters along with a nice little note — “Love the print! I took a few pictures of it up. The pics don’t do it justice but feel free to use it! I love my bedroom even more now!”
We love his style and excitement for design. So we say keep ’em coming! We love to see where Le Monkey House items are now residing.
Thanks to our awesome customers and we hope to see more photos.
Let’s get weird! One of the new wedding invitation designs Raygan has been working on is simply adorable and quite distinct. It’s refreshing to see brides think outside the box and experiment with new designs that aren’t the traditionally fancy invitations. Lucy and Will’s wedding invitations are cute, fun, and much more interesting than the average wedding invitation. Their designs feature dog silhouettes, a quirky RSVP, and even give guests the option to request a song to be played at the reception! These invitations will surely bring a smile to every guest who receives them and they are definitely a keeper for memories! I’m sure their wedding will be fun and “weird” just like the invitations! (And by “weird” we mean absolutely entertaining and lively!).
Today we have been working on getting our wholesale packets together! We would love to start reaching out to wholesalers to feature LeMonkey House designs in their boutiques and shops, so we are getting prepared! There is a lot to be added to our website (more than we originally had thought!) and we are making sure everything we (and you) need will be available very soon. Between the research, typing, and technicalities I would say we pretty much have this stuff down and will be ready in no time to continue the advancement of LeMonkey House designs! We are so excited to start news things and we are well on our way with the addition of our large format printer and wholesaler outreach. We would like to thank everyone who already supports LeMonkey House and Chikpea Graphics and we hope you will continue to love our work and support us down the road. This business will continue to grow and I’m sure there will be many more surprises to come. You will not be disappointed!
Great news! This past Saturday morning we sold seven Outer Banks Neighborhoods posters on our Etsy page! Each one was purchased by a different person and we thought it was something special we would share with you! (A copy of the poster is shown below). We are just so happy that people are falling in love with these designs because they really express such creativity and joy in our eyes. Keep ordering your own copies of LeMonkey House posters!
Check out this HUGE print of one of LeMonkey House’s poster designs! There are no other words, but “wow” to describe it. I could barely hold this thing while we were taking pictures of it!
Here are a few pictures of the photos we’ve been printing from our new printer! (We have decided to name him “the beast”)
It has arrived! Our new outrageously large printer is sitting in the Chikpea studio ready to begin printing! The EPSON 9890 is capable of printing large format prints and Chikpea Graphics will now offer these larger sized prints for our customers. Companies who are looking for somewhere to get their photos or other work printed may contact Raygan for pricing. You can also go to the Chikpea Graphics website to get more information on pricing for large format prints. We are so excited to be offering something new and are already playing with the our new toy! (We may or may not have already printed some samples.) Be sure to check out our Facebook page and our website to get all the details on these new features.
The Fab.com feature is over! We want to give a big thank you to Fab.com for featuring Raygan’s beautiful designs on their site and thanks to everyone who went online and checked out or bought Raygan’s designs! Weren’t they awesome?! It has been so fun working to get all these creations ready to be featured and sold online, but it is also a great relief to finally be able to relax a little. And here’s some even better news: thanks to fab.com, we are purchasing a new printer! The printer is an EPSON 9890 and will be perfect for printing larger prints. Now our customers will have the option to purchase their favorite designs in a much larger format!
Yesterday Raygan traveled to Fredericksburg, Virginia to install a giant mural on the wall of a new downtown restaurant. The restaurant is called Vivify Burger & Lounge and is owned by Blake and Aby Bethem, who are also the owners of Bistro Bethem! The mural is a picture of the Bethem’s three children, Finn, Parker Jules, and Jacob who have all been a big help in constructing the new restaurant. Raygan had a great time installing the beautiful picture (even without air conditioning!) and it turned out great! We hope all future customers really appreciate the mix of family and art in this design.
