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 three exclusive lines for Brown Ink. We fell head-over-heels for the vintage Lumberjack and Arrow images which Jean owned. When itching for a Canoe Paddle image we turned to graphic designer and friend Heather Musil at Little Bird Design. We added a Valentine's Day collection this past Winter which can be used and enjoyed well after February 14th. We also debuted the beautiful Big Dipper collection in the Summer, with two colors and two sizes.
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.
