SB Architects - Custom Timber Presentation Folders and Display Box

Our friends at SB Architects asked us to create something special for them. This custom joinery finished box was created from solid New Guinea rosewood which is designed to hold an ipad, a presentation folder, a phone and VR goggles. We put a stainless steel inlay inside the top of the lid and the front cover of the folder that finished flush leaving it smooth to the touch. The folder is hand bound with leather and contains a leather pocket to insert the booklet inside.

The Jefferson - Custom Sample-Boards Suitcase Style

We have made many finishings display / samples boards here at Potato Press, but this one was designed a little differently. It was created in the style of an easy carry briefcase that our client could easily transport to and from different sites she was traveling between. Created with a custom leather wrapped outer shell with subtle branding on the outside. We hand wove rope for the handles that were fixed into place with custom solid brass fittings cut in house. The case opens up and lays flat on its back to the viewer can browse through the samples. A lot of small elements add up to create one big impact with this one, we hope you like it as much as we enjoyed putting it together!

 

 

Nautique - Custom Solid Timber Awards

A long time client of ours, Nautique came to us for another event they held last year. We created a custom shaped solid hardwood base with laser cut acrylic and solid aluminium elements to keep with their rugged and stylish aesthetic.

Rocky Mountains Percussion Association - Custom Awards

The Rocky Mountain Percussion Association is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit Colorado based youth organization, that was started by a group of percussion instructors, judges and educators who were concerned about the level of percussion training and performance, primarily at the high school level. The RMPA is now one of the nation’s premier percussion organizations of its kind, and asked us to create some awards for their concert open. These laser cut acrylic awards were designed to look as sharp as their recipients!

Hand Bound Portfolio and Case

Here’s a cool custom portfolio created with a feature we haven’t done before; a clear window on top. This allows the viewer to look into the custom leather wrapped cover and look in on the contents inside. It has a stylish black print on matte black acrylic with sleek mechanical spine system. We love this subtle and sophisticated looking folio and hope you do to!

 

Project Spotlight: Bat Mitzvah Collateral

We count ourselves to be pretty lucky here at Potato Press in that we get to work on some pretty cool projects. Recently we were given the opportunity to put together some customised event collateral and a large scale custom invitation for a high profile Bat Mitzvah in New Jersey.

Designed with a classic Western theme in mind, the client requested a rustic wooden feel for the custom invitations in an effort to highlight the rugged, outdoorsy lifestyle. Utilising the unique skills of our in-house design team – namely graphic design  – we went above and beyond in the creation of both the invitations and packaging. Hand finished by our production team, the invitations were packaged and sent off to New Jersey to be hand delivered by a cowboy and cowgirl!

In order to showcase our dedication to originality, we paired different techniques and finishes throughout the delivered product. The main invitation was created using a mix of laser etching, print, layered elements and a custom edge colouring, all accompanied by a printed wooden RSVP and information card wrapped with twine.

In addition to the custom invitations, we also manufactured table numbers, table place cards, menus, serving boards, signing boards for guests as well as a fun logo brand for burning into hamburgers.

If you’ve got a special event or occasion coming up and want to make a last impression, give us a call or drop us an email.
