Our founder Nancy is a designer at heart.  She's also a geek when it comes to material and process.  Thus, we are adventurous explorers of process, always seeking new ways to push boundaries.  Isn't discovery grand?  Here's a glance at our processes:

  • Designing:  This one is most important.  We pour a ton of time and thought into our work.  We design and refine each product.  We carefully determine our supply chain and production process.  Our efforts translate into added value for you.  Ultimately, our design philosophy leads to surprise and delight ;)
  • Laser Cutting:  We are obsessed with this process.  It allows us to emphasize material, highlighting its natural beauty.  We utilize state-of-the-art technology that enables us to offer laser-cut products at attainable price points.  This is one testament to our rigorous design process.
  • Hot-foil Stamping:  The most curious metallics on the planet help us create inviting contrast.  "Stamped" with heat, foil adopts the paper's toothy texture.  There's nothing like the tactile differences between brilliant foils and matte papers.  For us, this effect is irresistible.
  • Embossing:  Because we are so taken with fine colored papers, embossing is a natural attraction.  It honors the naked material.  This process applies heat and pressure to make a deep impression on the paper's surface.  We love using just paper, heat and pressure...no ink required.
  • Digital Printing:  Most people view digital printing as ordinary, conventional, economical.  But the digital world is expanding...one might argue it is surpassing its predecessor, offset printing.  We work with true craftsmen, forging new paths with digital technology.  Amazing how many nuances exist within the realm of digital.  “The devil is in the details” definitely rings true here.
  • Hand Assembly:  Familiar with that children's book The Day the Crayons Quit?  Well, if I were a hand in this age of automation, I would quit too.  Some things are better left to the human hand.  Proudly, we hand-assemble because it reaps countless rewards.  We'd like to keep it that way.
