I do love me some letterpress! Parrott Design Studio is a boutique design and letterpress studio located in Sebago, Maine that offers a charming, hand-drawn collection of greeting cards.
We invite you to explore our collection where the designs are simple and lovely, fun with a touch of whimsy, inspired by vintage ephemera, flora and fauna, and candy-colored hues. The studio is home to two antique Golding Jobber presses from 1898 and 1901. Each piece is hand-fed, one by one, on either press.

Call me old fashioned, but I like having an actual calendar – you know, one made of PAPER – in my life. Hung up in the kitchen or propped on my desk; it’s a sweet, gentle reminder of the passage of time. (As always, click to shop!)
Satsuma Press is a one-person letterpress and design studio located in Corvallis, Oregon, that produces exquisitely delicate, yet modern letterpress products. “I fancy good, simple design that is pleasing to the eye and mind; refreshing color and lush paper; plenty of open space and quiet, graceful beauty.” (As always, click to shop!)
DOZI is a small, San Francisco based design studio run by Wendy Chung. Wendy began her career in engineering, but found herself increasingly fascinated by design, patterns and color. After a few classes and a lot of exploring, she found a love for bringing her patterns to life on stationery and home goods. Wendy strives to keep her designs clean, fresh, and sensible, creating goods thoughtfully and using high-quality, natural materials. I love the clean, simplicity of her prints – livable and modern.

In honor of the the final day of the National Stationery Show in NYC, I thought I’d share one of my all time favorites. Pikku is a brilliant line of charming textiles and stationery products by designer Valerie Ormiston. I adore that in a world of constant change and the urge to reinvent, her wares evolve at a snail’s pace – and stand the test of time. Simple, modern, unpretentious and happy.
