Inspiration Board : PaperWheel Press

Posted by

A few weeks ago we had a visit from the folks at Twitter. They brought with them some beautiful letterpress cards made by Elizabeth Bailey Weil of PaperWheel Press. Elizabeth works at Twitter and in her spare time runs a letterpress stationery company. In addition to offering custom letterpress design she also has a line of cards, many of which incorporate the high-tech nature of her day job in a clever and playful way. Twitter cofounder Biz Stone informed us that every new employee receives a handwritten note from him on one of Elizabeth's cards. I thought that was pretty great!
