In October, we moved Printerette Press into a new space over the river in Minneapolis. It’s a total dream over here! Big windows, great light, way more space. (Enough space for a new press! More on that soon…)
Recently, my gals at Satori Photography came over to take a few pictures of the new space.
Moose stole the show, as per usual.
There’s a few more pictures, if you’re interested, on our Facebook page.

It’s here again and I’m more excited than ever!. On display on our (new hardwood) walls (thanks Dad!) will be new cards, art prints, wedding suites, note pads, and calendars. Oh yeah!
If you’ll be in New York at the show, please come visit! Booth 2156.
Also, my buddies Andy & Jane of Benchpressed will be debuting their (maybe too) awesome cards, prints, and calendars this year. Wait till you see… you’ll die.
My family is a little different than it was last year and the holidays are going to feel less familiar. I thought it was a good year to start a new tradition and I’m pretty excited about this….
Can’t wait to start baking! I’m not quite sure what I’ll be baking yet but it’ll undoubtedly be a show stopper…
Our new wedding collection that we debuted at the National Stationery Show are almost ready to ship out to the lovely retailers that will be carrying our album. Despite the hustle bustle, I’m already cooking up new invitation suites for an update to our collection later this year.
How’s this for fun!? Neon! I would have liked these for my own wedding three years ago.
Happy summer to you all! It’s a scorcher in Minnesota so far. No complaints here!
We’re home! The National Stationery Show is a wrap and it was quite an experience. It was our second year exhibiting and we arrived feeling like real veterans, with a bit more know-how under our belt. And (lucky me!) as an added confidence bonus, my whole family came along to help build the booth, run errands, fetch coffee, etc! Photo proof I have one of the most supportive families on Earth: here’s Howie and my in-laws slaving over the installation of the walls and shelving while I stand back and twiddle my thumbs.
Martha, my sister, and my dad came a day later (they rode their bikes from Vermont!) and they helped put the finishing touches on the booth. Here’s Marthy stringing the pom poms that my littlest sister, Anna, made. Thanks Anna! They were a hit.
We finished setting up Saturday morning, and spent the rest of the day lurking around the city. We enjoyed a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge, the Brooklyn Flea, a trip to Fishs Eddy, Topshop, and dinner at Burger Joint. (GO to Burger Joint if you haven’t. It’s the tiniest hidden gem in Le Parker Meridien… completely unexpected).
Then Sunday the show began! We debuted lots of new goodies (new cards AND our new wedding collection!), met great buyers from across the globe, and hung out with our lovely neighbors when traffic was slower.
The NSS is truly a blast. I challenge anyone to find a kinder, more supportive, more creative community than the stationery industry. Each year we’ve gone, I’ve left the show floating on air. Despite the late nights and the stress of preparing for the show, I’m already looking forward to next year. Thank you to everyone who made the experience such a positive one. We can’t wait to see you next May!
For those of you that missed the show, you can find our new product in stores around the country and in our shop in the next few weeks.
(All photos were taken on my iPhone, except for the photos of the wedding invitations. They were taken by the lovely Kristen of Paper Crave and appeared on her wonderful coverage of the show).
