"As creative director, my goal is to strike a balance between diversity and cohesion through color, materials and our production process."

Working in the bindery department of print shops in her early days, then being introduced to letterpress at Oregon College of Art & Craft certainly shaped Carly’s artistic view of the world. But not as much as falling in lurve with a bearded man from Bellingham, WA, and becoming a young entrepreneur in a creative and quirky town. Kevin and Carly began collecting and restoring old presses and printing tools, slowly growing their own line of sweet ‘n’ strange paper goods. Collaborating with a small group of hardworking artists has definitely expanded their style—but what sets them apart is their ability to get a balanced, heavy letterpress impression out of their beautiful (and sometimes ornery) old machines.
