smock letterpress stationery

By: Laurie Grassi

I just can't get enough of fabulous stationery and love journals, paper and cards to the point of obsession. In particular I love letterpress stationery, which has a 3D effect because the ink is pressed into the paper, and now love Smock stationery, which is based in Syracuse, N.Y. Its designs have a chic retro flair and are fashioned by Amy Graham Stigler, who was an art historian prior to working at Smock; its papers are pure bamboo -- perfect for the letterpress technique, since it's soft and thick, and, from an ecological point of view, it's absolutely appealing because it doesn't need fertilizer or pesticides or as much water as cotton, and it's incredibly fast growing. You can get everything from note cards to invitations in all kinds of lovely ready-made designs. Or looking for something more specialized like wedding invitations? Smock will happily handle that, too. They also do gift wrap, which is printed on 100% post-consumer recycled paper -- sheer bliss!! Have a peek at some of the company's work below, or check out their website here. Fun Canadian connection: Smock owners Debbie Urbanski and Harold Kyle named their son Jasper, after the Canadian national park! Available at: www.smockpaper.com
