ABOUT THESE MAKERS:
Allison and Jessica are the babes behind The Social Type. This collection represents them. A + J like to have a good time and they don't take anyone too seriously. They know how to brighten someone's day with the perfect card, a beautifully wrapped gift and a glass of bubbly. The cute team duo love bold color and don't shy away from a flirty detail.
Iron Curtain Press was founded in 2007 in Seattle, Washington by a creative husband and wife team; Rosanna and Joel Kvernmo. In 2012, the Kvernmos packed up shop and moved to Los Angeles. Each and every design is carefully created, printed and packaged in their studio by hand and with love. What started as a love for stationery and design has grown into a full-time letterpress printing house specializing in custom projects and an original collection of cards and gifts.
Bench Pressed is a letterpress & design studio in Minneapolis, Minnesota, owned and operated by husband & wife team, Andrew and Jane Shannon. With a passion for print, an eye for design, and love of all things paper related, they produce their own line of hand-drawn, hand-printed greeting cards.
B&U all started in 2012 with a relationship: a Southern art student and a Northern soldier fell in love along the sandy beaches of Tybee Island and the shady moss-draped oaks of Savannah, Georgia. Meg and Josh have a soft spot for vintage American wit and wisdom and goods that tote a bit of a foodie twist. Everything you’ll find here is steeped in Southern hospitality — from the deepest grooves of our letterpress greeting cards to the very (literal) fiber of our signature tea towels — all proudly American made.
Armed with a Sharpie and a love for printing letterpress, Adam Smith launched Life Is Funny Press in 2009. Each card is printed by hand on an antique letterpress using 100% tree-free paper, paired with a recycled colored envelope, and packaged in a cello sleeve here in lovely Los Angeles. Adam's sense of humor can be seen in boutiques around the country and beyond.
Parrott Design Studio is a boutique letterpress studio in Sebago, Maine established in 2007 by Sarah Parrott. The studio began with the idea of creating hand printed stationery that I could give as gifts to family and friends. Custom design requests started coming in and our first collection was born.
Wild Ink Press is a little letterpress studio in Chico, up in northern California. Owner and designer Rebekah Tennis started Wild Ink Press in 2009, springing out of a desire to create a cherished, finished product. We design and manufacture (made in our space from start to finish): witty and pretty greeting cards, stationery and other paper goods in our downtown shop renovated from an old soda bottling plant. We keep old printing machines and techniques alive, but liven them up with fresh artwork and zingy prose!
