When our store opened in the Fall of 2013, Brown Ink Paper Goods noticed a lack in men's stationery, both for formal greetings as well as the simple "Cheers Mate" kind of correspondence. Hence, we looked to our favorite letterpress typeset designer and printer, Jean Glenn at Pomegranate Press, to create an exclusive line for Brown Ink. By using vintage printing blocks, our line includes 22 different letterpress styles for both men and women, with more debuting later this Spring.
In keeping with our love of the original printing style, we believe in staying true to the origins of letterpress by typesetting vintage print blocks. Pomegranate Press uses the finest paper and ink colors while printing by hand on a Chandler and Price Platen Press purchased in 2002. Jean recently opened up her own shop on Etsy for custom stationery needs.
