After taking a break for the last couple years I decided it was time to pick up where I left off. Welcome to the Shop at New Leaf Letterpress.
Now I didn't completely shut down over the last two years. I did some smaller projects here and there along with designing and printing wedding invitations for some dear friends who were married last summer, but I wasn't actively promoting the design studio and letterpress printshop or producing new designs.
After working full-time, part-time and running a business for several years I wasn't sure how i wanted to move forward so at the end of 2014 I decided to take a break. There were times over the last couple years where I considered selling the business. However, every time I'd work on a small project I knew I wasn't done with letterpress. There's something special and rewarding about standing in front of the press, hand feeding one sheet of paper at a time and pulling each impression off the press.
A couple months ago I started working on the new online store. I've been busy getting products photographed and added to the shop. I'm continuing to refine the product photography to showcase the papers, design and letterpress impressions on each greeting card, note card and stationery item. I'm working to get more items added to round out the current collections featured in the shop.
Moving forward I'm continuing to refine product listings. I'll be adding information on business cards & stationery, wedding invitations and related letterpress items to the shop soon. I look forward to what the future holds, sharing details on what's happening in the studio, new designs and regular blog posts with you.
Thank you for reading this far. If you have any questions about letterpress printing or suggestions for products you'd like to see in the shop don't hesitate to send me an email at shop [at] newleafletterpress [dot] com.
