letterpress stationery, your words

happiness on paper

We’re Bumblebee Press, a letterpress & design studio intent on making it easy for you share your good thoughts.

Farewell stuffy stationery

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.

Your words matter

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. 

Time is precious

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.

Simplify your stationery & make your day delightful

You'll love to share this

If beautiful paper and letterpress make you smile, get ready to get happy.

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. You, too? You’re in the right place.

You'll be happy to know

Our favorite papers are made by 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 source materials from companies that are committed to sustainable practices, and we’re always looking for ways we can reduce our footprint. Making the world better one letter at a time.

letterpress print with the words the true secret of happiness lies in taking an interest in all the details...

We're a little obsessed with making things you'll love

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.

The quality of your paper is much nicer than others. But, most importantly, I love the fact that you are an artist and a small business owner who is incredibly passionate about the art of letterpress, and that passion imbues every piece that you create.

Susan Vann, Thomasville GA

This is the way I always want to buy stationery - made by hand, by a person, not a faceless company.

Margaret Rode, Evergreen CO

Yahoo! The boxes arrived today. I opened mine and the cards are incredibly beautiful. I’ll have a hard time parting with each piece, but know that each will bring joy to the lucky recipient.

Danell D, San Francisco CA
