card making workshop

We recently collaborated with Discovery World in a card making workshop. Discovery World held the greeting card workshop after hours in their print and publishing lab. And Broadway Paper was there as the official card making experts!

We had lots of fun and made lots of really unique and beautiful cards. From screen printing, to letterpress, to die cutting... we did it all! Discovery World has many more adult art classes including screen printing coming up in July. We had so much fun at Discovery World, we're planning a few more workshops including one dedicated just to letterpress! More information to come!

greenwich letterpress

Greenwich Letterpress is a new company for us that I picked up this year at The National Stationery Show. I am absolutely in love with their products... and so are our custies since their cards are already flying off of the shelves!

Besides producing beautiful products, Greenwich Letterpress strives to be as environmentally friendly as possible. All of their paper is either made from 100% tree free post consumer cotton or 100% recycled, and they use all soy based inks. They have a zero carbon footprint by using 100% wind energy when producing their products. What's more to want with a card company? They're great!

One of my favorite cards of theirs is their Frank Lloyd Wright card. The card says "Thanks for the advice... you're always Frank Lloyd Wright." Wright is a Wisconsin native and there are numerous houses around Milwaukee that were designed by him... so I think this card is perfect for the store!

You can shop our selection of Greenwich Letterpress products right here.
