artist-made stationery, your words
Hi! We're Bumblebee Press, a letterpress and design studio intent on helping you share your good thoughts.
We checked. Nowhere in The Rules does it say that your stationery must be pretentious or boring.
Thank heavens 'cause humdrum's a missed opportunity for the warm fuzzies.
What doesn't matter is if your handwriting's messy or your note's written on a scrap from the recycle bin.
It's your thoughtfulness that makes someone's day. Big time.
Ever labored over finding just the right card for that special someone? One that makes your heart swell to send? And then maybe it didn't get it sent?
That's time taken away from your busy day. And from what you really want to do —to connect.
Tap into your inner Jane Austin with our modern guide for writing a heartfelt thank-you note or jump straight to stationery delivered to your door. You're invited to them both.
Your words, your thoughts, your connection.
Your heartfelt notes are fun to send. And to receive. (We love making them for you, too.)
If beautiful paper and artisanal stationery make you smile, you're in the right place.
We use papers made from 500 year old mills, reclaimed cotton rag, small-batch handmade papers, and papers in all kinds of textures and colors from all over the world. Pair that with letterpress printing on vintage cast iron presses and other time-honored techniques...
—These are things that make our heart leap and that we love sharing with you.
Our favorite papers are from companies that care about impeccable quality and protecting our natural resources.
It makes sense. Creating beauty starts from a reverent awe of this world. And with that, comes a deep responsibility to care for it well.
We buy from suppliers that are committed to sustainable practices and we're always looking for ways we can reduce our own footprint. Because sustainability is beautiful.
We believe our processes (+ how we feel) and the materials we use (sustainably sourced and crazy beautiful papers) make a difference in the quality of the products we create.
There's an energy that can be felt with an intentionally crafted piece.
That's why we fell for old world techniques like letterpress printing and pressed botanicals. These processes are slow and deliberate. But oh so beautiful.
It makes us happy and inspires us to share.
And this, we wish for you.
You deserve it. And yes, busy friend, it's a real thing. Grab our free guide to write the kind of thank you note that will make hearts sing. Starting with yours. No more looking at a blank page. One of the easiest and most effective gratitude practices around.
Plus, you get to share it.
Our welcome email is on it's way to you.
If you don't receive it (check your spam/promotions folders), send us an email at [email protected] and we'll help you out.
We'll email you when doors are open.
