We’ve taken the sometimes sassy and sometimes sweet sentiments of Georgia O’Keeffe and brought them to a line of luxurious letterpress stationery. Working with local company, Penumbra Letterpress, we’ve paired luxe textured paper with beautiful and timeless quotes from O’Keeffe that are as relevant today as they were when she first said them. “We often do things in spite of difficulties” brings comfort to someone going through a challenging time; it’ll light up their day to know that you’re thinking about them.
A small letterpress shop in the mountains of Santa Fe, New Mexico, Penumbra specializes in custom print jobs for and collaborations with artists looking to print their work with letterpress. They run hand-fed, fully-manual presses dating back to the late 1800’s and set lead + wood type and also incorporate contemporary designs through the use of photopolymer plates. Their presses are gorgeous, greasy machines that operate at the speed of the 1800’s—and they like it that way.
