The intrepid Ms. Lia Lafreniere took these behind-the-scenes snaps of our studio a while back, and we thought we'd share them! Our space is an old button factory in downtown San Francisco - it's got a real club-house-y kind of feel...
Here's what you see when you come up the stairs to our offices...
We have flea market finds all over the place - including this be-bowed quail!
Downstairs is our press room and packaging area, where we do all our letterpress printing and ship out greeting card orders.
Aaron and James, two of our letterpress pressmen, getting ready to work on their vintage Heidelbergs...
The amazing and dexterous Francois helps finish orders that need ribbons, envelope liners, etc. He made that amazing paper dress on the mannequin upstairs!
Our packaging area, piled high with boxes and envelopes!
Back upstairs, we have some vintage shelves where we display our cards...right now that area is full of boxes of supplies for our new crafting book we're working on!
Our design department, led by Eunice our Creative Director, and whipped into shape on a daily basis by Shauna, designer and taskmaster extraordinaire!
Some of our invitations - getting ready to be checked, assembled and shipped to happy brides!
We welcome visitors, so if you're in the Bay Area, come on over! We're open 9 - 6, Monday - Friday and while we have a retail-ish area, it's best to make an appointment to look at invitations or chat with our staff. We're a small, super-friendly shop, and love it when people stop by!
