I have been looking for a letterpress that was simple and clean for a few months. I wanted something that felt very personal but wouldn’t break the bank. My bestie is a whiz at paper goods. She always seems to have the best, and know the best.  She is responsible for introducing me to the amazing…
custom note pads (below) that I use daily and now buy as gifts for my friends. Right when I asked her who she recommended for letterpress she instantly said Paper Lovely. Once I pulled their site up I was instantly in love. Kim, the founder, is super talented and really understands how to keep it simple but still let your name pop.
Hand written thank you notes are very important to me. Growing up my mother used to make my brother, sister, and I sit at the table and write them to everyone who gifted us something for our birthday or Christmas. I used to want to cry but now I am so grateful she taught me to do this. I can’t wait to send these customized cards out thanking anyone I had the pleasure of working with on M.A.S.

side note- I am in the market for new business cards. Do ya’ll have any recommendations?

    Love your new stationary Mary! I found this great graphic designer a few months ago – you should take a look… he has some really cool business card designs!

    Love your new notes! I am a big believer in the power of snail mail too! I just got new business cards from Moo (online), and used a design created by my site designer. Easy peasy, and the got to my door step quickly!

    I used Millet The Printer in Dallas for my business cards. Tim did a beautiful job, and they weren’t that expensive. Feel free to email me if you want more info!

    My business cards are from Dingbat Press – they’re letterpress and DP even gives you the option of coloring the edges! I always get a lot of compliments. They’re not easily found on their website, but type “calling cards” in the search bar (mine are the minimalist ones.) Good luck!

    I think your letterpress is perfect! As for business cards, I design my own and print on Vista Print. However, I’m a broke twenty something so I don’t think that is incredibly helpful. Share your source once you find it! :)

    Love the simple block letter letterpress on your stationery!

    LOVING that stationary, I need to order some for myself! I just bought some cute temporary notecards, but I would love to create custom cards. Another thing on my “to-do” list. As for business cards, my boyfriend and I do custom business cards – I’m not sure if you remember mine with the little friendship bracelets?
