We all love giving and receiving a heart felt, handwritten card. There is something old fashioned about it. It is a personal touch to any gift or alone in itself. Some trendy notes recently discovered are from a design studio started in Brooklyn called the Walk Up Press. All Walk Up Press stationery is designed and letterpress printed by hand.
Elizabeth diGiacomantonio and Joseph Traylor started Walk Up Press both being post graduate design students brought together as random roommates in a walk up apartment building in Manhattan's East Village hence the name and inspiration. Now long time friends and Brooklyn residents, they work together to design and produce letterpress stationery that reflects the attitude that they have come to love so much about living and working in New York.
The stationary cards are so simple and just plain cool. There are so many to choose from to say exactly what you are thinking. Just look at the He Said, She Said collection which allows you to fill in the blank personalizing the message for any occasion. "Sending a someone a handwritten note is something that people do less and less nowadays, and because of that, giving someone a card is a really special thing," Elizabeth says. "The problem is, when we wanted to send a card to someone, we always had trouble finding ones we really liked, so we started to design our own, the kind of cards that we would want to buy, and hoped other people would like them too."
Walk Up Press products are available online at www.walkuppress.com, and at retailers throughout the country including New York, Brooklyn, New Jersey, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles and internationally.
