As we get ready to head to NYC for the Stationery Show and mark the ONE YEAR since we opened in Ann Arbor--we want to take the next couple days to share our customer's favorite greeting card & stationery lines.
Our New Kids on the Block are SO much better than Joey, John, Danny, Donnie or Jordan, but they have the Right Stuff (insert high hat-- ba dum chaaaaa). Our three newest designers-- Grey Moggie Press, Ink Meets Paper & Parrott Design have us all breathless & in love-- whether it's for the handlettering beauty, hilarious cards or perfectly said postcards-- we're swooning (yah, i said it) over these amazing finds. And, thankfully, our Ann Arbor friends, just can't get enough of 'em!
Meet Ink Meets Paper Press-
These guys had us at their tagline. Text Less. Write More. These newbies, Ink Meets Paper in Charleston, SC believes EVERY CARD HAS A STORY! They say on their website "Handwriting cards to those we love allows us to share our own personal story. (They) create behind-the-scenes video that shows the letterpress printing process of your card." They even have a story code that you can scan or enter to learn the store of each card itself! Oh and wait until you catch a peek at their kraft envelopes. Be. still. our. handwritten note. lovin. hearts.
Now, meet their designs, and prepare to smile--
Meet Grey Moggie Press--
Melanie of Grey Moggie Press, a DC letterpress shop, describes herself as "dc dweller. letterpress instructor. lawyer by training. printer by trade. coffee drinker. cat mom. dog mom. baby mom. foodie wife. type enthusiast." We call her the genius & inspiration behind our #BabyGoosetoRPS campaign of 2013!
