SNEAK PEEK: Azuline wall art personalized with Houndstooth Platy

Next week, Fortis Design leaves for the National Stationery Show in New York City.

While there, all of Rob’s fabulous, unexpectedly fun products will be displayed including Platypus Designer Duct Tape, Magwear, The Wally Bottle Openers, Cocktail Napkins, Magnetic Dart Games…And – BIG NEWS – he is going to be introducing a brand new line of paper goods called Azuline.

Azuline is a charmingly modern assortment of greeting cards and wall art. A departure from all the letterpress that has flooded the stationery market over the last few years, each design is wonderfully hand painted by LA-based artist Anne Jordan (who also happens to be Rob’s talented little sister) using saturated color in cheerful palettes.

From my viewpoint, it’s very exciting to see Anne’s hard work come to life along with help from Rob and her mom, Louise (who you might recall is also one of the Platypus People…and Anne was the artist who painted all of our cute portraits!). Her artfully stated paper goods are going to stand out in a sea of sameness. I think buyers and editors alike will take notice….

Here’s a sneak peek of one of Azuline’s safari animal wall art, saturated with color + a nice change from most kiddie art out there. You’ll see that I framed it with “Houndstooth” Platypus Designer Duct Tape in an inexpensive clean-lined frame from Joann Fabric.

Here’s how:

  • Cut a strip of tape longer than you need so that you can easily line up Rob’s vertically and horizontally seamless tape.
  • Carefully wrap over the top around the sides (I didn’t worry about covering the entire backside).
  • Overlap the corner and then just slice the overage.

It only takes a few minutes and few bucks to personalize your art (Azuline will be available soon for purchase at…!).

Looks totally custom. Looks expensive.

But not.

Graphic chic, I think!
