A few weeks back, we chatted with Bruce Aune from KCRG about our little shop here in Mount Vernon during their week-long “Our Town” feature. We set up a little type and had the press running. Check out the feature below or on KCRG’s website!
One of our personal stationery styles was featured in the Winter 2018 Magnolia Journal magazine! You can find us right on page 24 as a part of their holiday gift guide.
Many asked how we came to be featured. It’s still a bit of a mystery to us here. This style has been a part of our shop for a number of years. In early fall of 2018 we received an order that had a bit of a recognizable name, and it just happened to be shipping to Waco, Texas. We figured maybe it was just a gift and tried not to get too excited. We didn’t know it was going to be published in the Magnolia Journal until another stationer gave us the heads up when the magazine came out. Needless to say, we went out right away to grab a copy!
When we last posted, one of our cards was a finalist at the 2018 National Louie Awards held at the end of May. A few months have passed and we’re proud to announce that we won our category! Our “cat parent” holiday card won the “Christmas/Seasonal Humorous Above $4.00” category. We weren’t able to make it to New York for the awards ceremony, but this piece of hardware showed up at the shop! Glass is very hard to photograph!
Even though it’s July, we’re already starting to print new holiday designs and reprint some of our classics. If you want to get a jump on holiday cards, check out all our designs here.
We’ve been slinging our letterpress cards for going on 6 years now (can you believe it?!?). In those 6 years we’ve made a lot of cards and have sent them all over the world. And now we’ve got one that’s up for a major award. And it’s fitting to use A Christmas Story reference since it’s one of our holiday cards that is a finalist for the Louie Awards!
The Louie Awards are hosted by the Greeting Card Association (yes, that’s a thing) and has been showcasing the best in the stationery industry for nearly 30 years. Our “cat parent” card is one of three finalists for the “Christmas/Seasonal Humorous Above $4.00” category. And it was one of our best selling holiday cards this last year, which proves that cats are definitely better than dogs (I kid, I kid….mostly).
The winners will be announced this May and we’re hoping to make it out to New York for the celebration. And if you want to get a head start on your holiday shopping now, we’ve got the card in our online shop. And for all you dog parent’s out there, don’t worry. We’ve got a dog version too.
Now that December is here, we’ve got some updated holiday hours! From the 11th through the 23rd we’ll be open Mondays and have extended hours Fridays and Saturdays. We hope to see you in the shop!
Welcome to our new website!
We’ve been working under wraps for a few months now and its now time to put our little baby out into the world. Be sure to check out the new shop and our featured weddings. And we’ll be back in this area to share new things in the shop and projects we’re working on. Cheers!
