Where the Magic Happens

Hello!

We are based in Charlestown (a neighborhood of Boston) in Massachusetts, and all of our letterpress stationery is printed in-house on our Heidelberg printing presses. The sound of the presses chugging away is our daily soundtrack. Even though we print thousands of cards every year, it's still exciting each time a card comes out the of print room complete and ready to package. 

Our flat-printed products are produced by local Massachusetts offset and digital print shops. We visit our printers to check colors and the cards are delivered to us to package right here in our studio. 

Our amazing fulfillment team matches cards with envelopes and slips them into boxes or cello sleeves. They hand roll the gift wrap sheets and pack calendars into cases. Once everything looks pretty, it's ready to ship to you! 

Thank you so much for visiting! Learn more about our team here.
