We believe helping others is the most important thing we can do. It’s not always possible to have your hands on the ground in places where help is needed, but giving financially can make an impact.
Your purchase of our greeting cards allows us the opportunity to give back. A portion of our proceeds goes towards meeting the needs of refugee families resettling in the United States.
We believe in ethical and sustainable business practices. We recycle our unused papers. Our classic paper stocks are made of pure cotton and linen fibers recovered from the apparel trade and the fine fibers left after ginning cotton seed. They are truly tree-free. The white cotton fibers require fewer chemicals for processing and produce less waste than other raw materials used for papermaking.
Everything we make is handmade from start to finish. The concept, handlettering, design, and printing are all done in our Tennessee studio.
Our products are printed on the (above) Chandler & Price platen press. Each piece of paper is hand fed into the machine and the letterpress relief process creates an impression on the paper. Learn more about the letterpress print process here.
Anna Brown has over 5 years of graphic design, handlettering, and letterpress experience. With a degree in psychology, she has always been interested in the way humans relate and empathize with one another. Over the years, she has cultivated a unique style by combining these talents and passions. Her initial love for the paper industry began with the purchase of a 100 year old, 2000lb. printing press and has grown as it has allowed her the opportunity to create for a living. She lives in Tennessee with her energy enthusiast husband, sweetheart son Theodore, 2 dogs and cat. Anna’s work has been featured in many publications including Martha Stewart Weddings Magazine, Style Me Pretty, Wedding Sparrow, Magnolia Rouge, and Southern Weddings Magazine.
