RPS Designer Profile- Ladyfingers Letterpress
We love Ladyfingers Letterpress more than coffee, Ryan Gosling, whiskey sours, cheeseboards, Saturday Night Live sketches featuring Amy Poehler and Tina Fey together, snow and 80's music. If you know us, you understand what a bold statement that is. A unique company like Ladyfingers Letterpress deserves a bold confession of adoration. Their use of neon, humor, nontraditional invitation styles, adorable illustrations and super unique style of hand lettering has us head over heels, and truth be told, there's no looking back.

Nothing they do is run-of-the-mill, so take a closer look at the amazingness that is Ladyfingers Letterpress and prepare to be wowed. Don't say we didn't warn you... How’d you name your brand/company? When we first started dreaming of starting our own business, we wanted to have a printshop and bakery because Morgan loves to bake. We are both ladies so Ladyfingers seemed perfect. What has been your favorite project you’ve worked on? It’s a tie between the holiday card we made for Rock Paper Scissors (the foil stamping! Cheeseland!) and Nole of Oh So Beautiful Paper’s planisphere! We love projects that call for lots of invention and creativity and the clients who appreciate them. If you had to tattoo one word on your body, what word would you choose? Meatball, because it is the name of our beloved cat, in addition to Arley’s signature dish. Arley got both of her tattoos blindfolded. She had no idea what her friend the tattoo artist would create (but neither is a meatball)! What’s your signature cocktail? Coors Light in a Koozie or Maker’s Manhattans. Stripes or polka dots? Stripadots. What song is on repeat on your iTunes right now? Arley loves Bjork. We had a big production party the night before we left for the Martha Stewart Weddings party where we listened to a lot of Katy Perry to keep us pumped up. Robyn. If you had to describe your work/style in three words, what would those words be? Hand-lettered, letterpressed, collaborative. If you could have a weird Freaky Friday experience for a day, which designer would you want to switch bodies with and why? We’re a wife-and-wife team, so sometimes we borrow each others’ clothes. Does that count? What advice would you give to 20 year old you? We tell ourselves all the time to relax and enjoy living in the moment. If we challenged you to a game of rock, paper, scissors, which would you choose? Why? Paper of course! A big thanks to the team at Ladyfingers Letterpress for taking the time to answer our questions! We hope to share a coors light in a coozie or a Maker's Manhattan (or both) with you guys SOON! Friends, swing back by the blog TOMORROW, to check out the amazing holiday card Ladyfingers designed for us! Quick suggestion... don't wear socks. They'll be knocked off!
