FareWell Paperie: AWESOMESAUCE!

I recently had the fortune of visiting The FareWell Paperie studio. Seattle Bloggers Unite (a local blogger group I'm a new member of) had a meetup there. Before this trip, I didn't know much about letterpress, but I might be a little obsessed now!
 
 
 
This is a wall of love! These are (most likely) just some of the wedding invitations FareWell Paperie has done over the years. By the way, they started back in 2009 and at one point, Lisa and Jen (creative minds behind FP) had a long-distance business relationship. I'm glad they stuck it out and moved here to Seattle!
 
 
 
 
 
 
If stationery heaven is a place, this could be it. Envelopes of all different colors, at an arms reach.
 
 
FareWell Paperie even makes wrapping paper! "Sorry it's not cash." Isn't that what some of us think when we get a gift?! This can be found in their Etsy shop. #sorrynotsorry
 
 
 
Our letterpress plates were waiting for us!
 
 
Jen from FP showing us how to work "Bill" (their 1905 Chandler & Price machine). Each of us not only got to design cute notecards, we got to use this machine ourselves! It was a little weird at first, but like many things, once you get the hang of it, it's easy-peasy. ;)
 
 
 
 And this is how my notecards turned out! Good mantra, don't you think?
 
 
 
These are the goodies I got to leave with after my notecards were done. Thanks goes out to: The Container Store, The Ravenna Girls, TuttaLou Press, Chronicle Books, Sasquatch Books, Tattly, JetPens.com, and Cameos & Crowns. Also, thank you to DRY Soda for the mocktails and the can I took to-go (not pictured because I shared with my boyfriend)!
 
 
I had to include this card in my post because I love it so much. It's perfect! It can be found here!
 

And this one we can all relate to. This birthday card can be found here!

Thank you FareWell Paperie and Lyndsey from Seattle Bloggers Unite!

  5. I love cute stationary! I have to avoid it in the store because I hardly ever use it, so it's not worth having tons of it.
