Make Your Own V-Day Cards!
For some of us, February 14 means crawling into a hole for the day, burning photos of exes, drinking yourself into a stupor or perhaps even a voodoo doll or two. For the lucky ones, however, Valentines Day means spreading the love, whether it’s shared with a special someone or ten of your favorite pals. If you can manage to tell one person you love them on this day, then I’d consider that a success. Or, if you’re a hoochie like me, you’re probably stressin’ about how to juggle all of your Valentines and what to give each of them without blowing an entire paycheck. This post is for you, playas! Those of you who have extra love to give this year, listen up! We’ve got a frugal and fun way to crank out those V-day gifts and still keep it personal.
The lovely folks over at CommonWealth Press and Sapling Press are hosting LOVE stINKS, a print-your-own party complete with beer, non-alcoholic bevies, snacks and a bumpin’ playlist by DJ Printsburgh to accompany all the action. A $30 ticket includes all of these wonderful amenities and of course, an unlimited supply of cards (or until they run out, you PLAYAS).
You can choose from eight screen print and two letter press stations, each of which will have a different design. Some are romantic, some platonic. You can even combine printing stations and designs to create a one-of-a-kind card. Save those ones for the ambiguous relationships in your life, eh? Print as many cards as you’d like from 6-9PM on Wednesday, February 8th.
CommonWealth Press is located at 1931 E. Carson St in the South Side. Tickets are $30 and space is limited, so go here, buy now, and make the most of your Valentine’s Day.
