“I’m not slow—I’m deliberate.”

Full-time time employment has kept me out of the workshop quite a bit these last two years. Thankfully, the summer months do give me a few precious days to print, and futz around with my type & cuts.   

I like to think I’m maximizing this time–that I’m printing a bunch of stuff to share and sell. But, that hasn’t happened in a while. Letterpress work was always a hobby for me. It always will be. And, it’s humbling to think that people want to buy my prints, cards, and notebooks.  

With that in mind, I’ve taken my paid BigCartel site offline. That was $120 per year (+ commissions from PayPal and Stripe) that could have bought more paper, new rollers, type, or ink. And, I really don’t feel like going back to Etsy. 

I’m not sure how sales will happen going forward. Instagram posts? PayPal only? MailChimp campaigns? Maybe this site if I tinker with it? 

Trust that I’m working on it. And, I’m cranking some prints!

It’s not really work if you love what you’re doing. 

But, I am working hard at it.

It’s been a while since I’ve had time to print. I’ve missed it. A lot. 

I’ve appreciated all the email inquiries and Instagram DMs asking when items will be restocked. And, I’ve been thinking about ways to accommodate those requests  

To start, I’ve decided to close out my existing online shop. It was too cumbersome to manage, and really didn’t provide much value. Going forward, all items for sale will now be posted here. 

More details coming soon!
