sustainable saturday {smock letterpress}


Smock Paper is a New York based print shop that prints on bamboo paper (the first in the US to do so) using only vegetable based and low VOC inks. The use of bamboo for the paper not only makes them an eco-friendly company but for a beautiful canvas for letterpress. They describe the texture of the paper as luxurious, soft and prettier then the finest cotton papers.

I'm not usually a fan of yellow, but I love the yellow-flower adorned stationary. Though the pink and blue are perfect as well. Oh, I'll admit it...I want it all. I love stationary!

Love them all SO much! I want to get married again and again and again (to the same person of course) just so I can avail myself of all the fabulous gorgeous artistic wedding things out there!

maybe I just need to become a wedding planner...much more economical than having my own wedding every year for the next 75 years!
