A few weeks ago, I had the distinct pleasure of printing beautiful stationery for an East coast photographer. Shannon reached out after seeing my Mr. and Mrs. card at Laurel Grove. She said the cards fit perfectly with her own branding, and after checking out her website, I couldn’t help but agree!
The process was simple: Shannon sent me her logo—a gorgeous hand-lettered, simple design that I knew would create a beautiful impression when printed with letterpress—I sent her a proof, and she said ok! We talked about a few different envelope colors before settling on a light gray, and then I ordered all the supplies! They arrived a few weeks later, I printed with great success and now they’re happily in the hands of the photographer, ready to be sent off to her lucky clients!

This project one of my favorites from last year. Colette Allen
was founded by Meighan Newhouse in 2012 out of a passion for job satisfaction. She believes if you are going to spend the majority of your time working, you should love what you do. Or at least like it a lot.
When she went looking for someone to collaborate with for her business stationery, she found someone who loves what they do—me! She already had a fabulous logo designed by Red Meets Yellow, so we put together a clean and simple design that would show off the impression of letterpress and applied it to two-sided business cards and a flat two-color notecard. Add matching bright green envelopes and voila! Business stationery any entrepreneur would be proud of.
One of the best parts about buying handmade directly from the artist is the ability to collaborate on custom work. Unfortunately, this can be an expensive, overwhelming and relatively slow process, so I’ve been working on ways to make custom letterpress pieces more accessible. The solution? A customizable piece with a finite number of choices for each aspect of the design.
Introducing custom monogram note cards with the following options:
1. Choose your initials (2-4 characters):
2. Choose your design:
3. Choose a color from the palette:
