April Month Rewind!

The month of April was busy, busy, busy! We love how fast time flies (it means we are having fun, right?!) Take a peek inside what the Steel Petal Press team has been up to in our April Month Rewind.

Employee Fun Time: Wine Candle Making
Every quarter Steel Petal Press sponsors an Employee Fun Time Event so the team can bond outside of the work environment. The team is really one of the best parts of Steel Petal Press so we always have a great time. We chose to do a Wine Candle Making class which walks us through how to make our own wine bottle candle! We chose everything from the bottle, the color, and the scent to make our very own custom candle!

OOAK Prep – SO MUCH PROCESSING:
In case you weren’t aware, one of the many things that make Steel Petal Press items so special is that they are prepared and packaged all by hand. This is what we can “processing”. It can be an incredibly overwhelming task during busy times like the end of a New Release and/or prepping for a retail market show like One Of A Kind. Well, lucky for us, both of these events happened this past April which made for a huge amount of processing to get done.

Steel Petal Press Handmade Cards
Every single individual card page was folded, enveloped, and sleeved by the Steel Petal Press staff! Be sure to think of that every time you pick up one of our products! 🙂

One Of A Kind (OOAK) April 2019 Show:
We kicked off the first of our two OOAK shows for the year (the second being a holiday one!). These retail market shows are a lot of effort and time which means it’s important for us to constantly evaluate what the cost/benefit is as a small business. This year’s Spring/Summer show was a bit slower than all the previous years so we aren’t sure if we will be returning to this particular one. However, Steel Petal Press does amazing at the holiday OOAK so we will definitely be back for that one! Here’s a few photos from our show in April:

Look at all the pretty Steel Petal Press cards at OOAK!

Steel Petal Press New Release – FINISHED:
We are so happy to report that we finished our New Release!! If you’ve been following us at all in the previous months, it’s been obvious what a huge task this is. With all our new products completed, we were able to make them available at our retail location and soon to be available for wholesale and retail (online) orders!

Mental Health Awareness Month | One

May is Mental Health Awareness Month

I’ve been sitting here at my computer running through my mind all the things I want to say about my personal mental health struggles:
“What is my story?”
“Why is it important?”
“What do I want to say?”  

The truth is, there are so many reasons to share my personal history with mental health. It has been challenging to organize my thoughts.  

For me, it all starts with understanding what I can control and what I cannot.  Mental illness, depression and anxiety runs in my family. It’s a genetic disease that has been passed down, not through actions and habits of my family, but through brain chemistry.  It took me a really long time to understand that feeling depressed and anxious is actually NOT something I can control. I struggled through many years trying to contain my emotions and then beating myself up when I couldn’t, it only made me feel worse. The tricky thing about mental illness (specifically anxiety in my case) is that sometimes an emotional reaction cannot be regulated by reason.  After years and years of ups and downs I met with the right psychiatrist. He helped me understand that some things are beyond my control. I was finally able to let go of trying. Rather than fighting an impossible battle with my brain chemistry, I was able to focus on the things I actually could control, like lifestyle, surroundings, situations and triggers that lead those feelings to surface.

So, What is my story?
It’s over 20 years of struggling with anxiety and resulting depression. Within those 20 years I experienced five episodes that completely debilitated me from functioning in everyday life.  HOWEVER, I want to reiterate, this is *not* a sob story. This is a story of someone who struggled and prevailed, and then fell and got back up again. I write this now from a positive, productive and rational place. In those moments of despair it’s the absolute worst. It feels hopeless and helpless and isolating and completely alone. But it has always gotten better.

So, why share my story? Why now?
I’m finally at a place where I feel like I have a much better understanding of myself and my illness.  With better perspective of my own story, I feel much better sharing what I know. Anyone else who feels similarly, I want you to know that YOU ARE NOT ALONE.

The more we talk about mental health the better we can understand each other, maybe together we can lessen the stigma and shame by sharing our experiences. I hope this blog series can help add to the conversation.

New Release Step 2: Printing Process

Steel Petal Press is back at it again with Step 2 of our New Release journey which we call the “Printing Process”. Now, I’m sure it’s obvious what a majority of this portion consists of (printing, duh!) but this time in our process also involves some steps you might not be aware of! Without further ado here’s a look at our Step 2: the Printing Process.

Before we can begin actually printing, we must order things called “plates” which takes about a week or so to come in. Plates are pieces of plastic which have the images of each specific design we created on it. The design has golden raised edges which is what the machine “presses” into the paper to create the images you see on our final products (hence the term letterpress!). It is also interesting to note that each color in a single design must use its own plate. Therefore, a single design may be comprised of 2 or 3 smaller, individual plates depending on how many colors are used – pretty cool, huh?!

Here’s a photo of a variety of plates we ordered for this current release!
A close up photo of a plate (left) and it’s intended final design (right)!

Now, it’s time to get printing! This is definitely the part of the process people are most curious about here at Steel Petal Press. We are always happy to share details about printing and letterpress but keep in mind, this blog is giving a fairly condensed version of how it works. Printing is a very time consuming process that takes days to weeks depending on the amount that is being printed. For example, this specific New Release has taken about 2-3 weeks to print and that’s with 2 people printing and 1-2 presses being used at different times. Check out some photos and informational captions about the printing process at SPP:

Color is everything.
It’s important to take the time to mix everything appropriately in order
to achieve a correct and consistent match for each color!
This photo is of a chase. It is the part of the machine which holds the plate in place so it’s very important that it’s aligned properly . The correct alignment allows for the design
(on the plate) to be pressed into the paper in the right places.
This is Shayna and she is placing the chase (pictured above) into the press so that
she can begin printing!
The image above shows incomplete cards that are waiting to have a different color used on the remaining plate to finalize the entire design!
While printing, it’s also important to pause to double-check alignments and troubleshoot any issues to ensure the best quality of each and every product!

In the midst of our printing marathon, we are also receiving shipments of our other newly design items that have to be outsourced. While every one of Steel Petal Press products are designed here in our Chicago, IL studio, non-paper items such as mugs, magnets, gift wrap, etc. have to be manufactured elsewhere. However, they are all still produced by companies in the US (pretty cool, huh?!).

We snapped these cute little sneak peek photos as soon as we got the new items in!

Lastly, we have to send out all the new products to a photographer so they can snap the product photos we use on our sales websites and marketing materials. This can take anywhere from 1-2 weeks but it’s a very important step. Additionally, we use the photos to make our wholesale and retail item listings so they can be properly purchased by consumers!

Thanks for staying tuned for Step 2 of our New Release. We are in the home stretch so be sure to check out Step 3 which will be the conclusion of our journey…until the next release, of course!

In the mean time, for more behind the scenes follow us on Instagram:

Chicago Print Crawl

Chicago Print Crawl

Steel Petal Press is thrilled to be participating in this year’s Chicago Print Crawl organized by Spudnik Press.

Spudnik Press is a community print shop located in West Town Chicago. They offer classes, workshops, private lessons and field trip tours for novices. For more intermediate printers, Spudnik rents studio space, and offers residencies and fellowships. Our very own printing assistant, Dan, recently went through their studio fellowship program.

The print crawl takes place on Saturday May 11th from 11am – 5pm. Steel Petal Press will be hosting an Open House of sorts. The presses will be running all day. Visitors coming into the shop will have a chance to ask questions while Dan prints. While we always have the presses on display at Steel Petal Press, this will be a unique chance to delve in and ask questions as we demo while we work.

How Does It Get Made?: The SPP Edition.

How does it get made? Is this a question we ask too much?…or not enough?

When we live in such a consumer-driven culture, it can be easy to forget the journey an item makes before we purchase it. For us here at SPP, it’s more than just making a commodity. It’s about creating high quality, handmade items that connect all of us through fun and meaningful life moments. With that in mind, we want to begin a series of blog posts that detail specific portions of the design process for our upcoming release – from start to finish! However, we thought to give it a bit more context that we should layout a brief overview of the entire process derived from our last release which just happened in January (Spring)!  Without further ado, enjoy How does It Get Made?: The SPP Edition.

The “Thinking” Process:
While this isn’t an official title or anything, it’s a great umbrella concept for the creative thoughts process that must happen first. Essentially, we can’t produce new items if we don’t know what ideas we want to create! As I mentioned above, we just did a Spring Release this January but its development began way back in August of last year (2018)! The entire staff joins in on the brainstorming process which means we are constantly jotting down and joking around with ideas. From that pool of ideas, Shayna starts designing rough sketches which can take anywhere from 4-6 weeks.

As the sketching process continues, Shayna will present them to the entire staff during weekly meetings in which positive and negative feedback is given and adjustments are made to create final designs or table  unfinished ideas (possibly for another release).

The “Printing” Process:
Next up, printing! Since we create cards using the letterpress process, we must order the plates which “stamp” (or press) our design onto paper. Therefore, absolutely no printing can occur until we receive them. The plates usually come in 1-2 weeks and then we print all the new card designs for another 2-3 weeks.

However here at SPP, we don’t just design cards! We also design gift items like magnets, mugs, gift bags, and gift wrap which can’t be made using letterpress so we outsource them during this time to other printing services in the US.

The “Marketing to Sales” Process:
This final portion of the journey encompasses all aspects that have to do with marketing and getting our products to sale through either wholesale or retail. When we finish printing, the new samples are shipped out to be photographed which takes about another 1-2 weeks. These photographs are important because they can used for a variety of marketing purposes like Instagram, Facebook, newsletters, etc.

During this time, Shayna will also update our wholesale catalog while our wholesale manager, Rachel, works on updating our various selling websites. Rachel will also work on sending out the new samples to our sales rep groups across the country to ensure they have our entire current line available for accounts. Last on the wholesale front, we will send out catalogs and marketing fliers to all 300+ current retailers to let them know about our new release!

Once all of that is complete, we can begin selling our new items to the public through various retail channels such as our brick and mortar store and our website!

The finish of a release also sets us up to show at wholesale markets like AmericasMart and NYNow because we have new products to debut to current and potential accounts!

Whew – what a process, huh?! While it’s no small feat, it’s a large part of what we are constantly doing here at Steel Petal Press. We look forward to continuing this blog post series in real time alongside our next release. Until then, we hope you enjoyed How Does It Get Made?: The SPP Edition.

Be sure to stop by our brick & mortar store (and shop our Steel Petal Press products online) to browse all of our awesome products AND MORE!

One of A Kind Show Chicago | 2018 Recap

We just finished up our 5th year exhibiting at One of a Kind Show Chicago.  It’s a four day sale located on the 7th floor of the Merchandise Mart in down town Chicago. There’s so many vendors a great handmade items from small nick knacks to beautiful (and pricey) works of art.

I’ve slowed down doing off site shows quite a bit since opening the SPP retail shop.  It’s not easy find staffing for outside events while also making sure the shop fully staffed (especially during the holidays).  But because the One of A Kind Show is in Chicago, it makes it easier to set up and man while still in Chicago.

The booth provided comes with hard walls and lights.  Tuesday and Wednesday before the show vendors bring in displays to showcase their work and make everything look pretty.  This is what our blank booth looked like before we started setting up:

We put up shelves, pegs and other table displays for all our product. Our white shelving is from Ikea, originally purchased for our first One of a Kind Show in 2014, which we have used every year since. We also have a table for boxed sets and home goods. Plus a little table to serve as our mini temporary cash wrap.

I always choose to power through set up on Tuesday so that if there are any last minute items I forgot or changes to the display, I can take care of those on Wednesday before the show opens. It also gives me some extra time to chill (if possible) before the show opens first thing on Thursday morning.  It’s a really long show, with 9-10 hour days for 4 days in a row. Any extra hours to rest are always helpful!

This year’s show was for the most part a success! We set up with enough time and have perfected our display (four years of practice, trial and error definitely help.)

The one major disappointment came on both Thursday and Friday mornings. Thursday morning I came into the show to find our singles and fives plus some rolls of quarters missing from our cash box.  Over $400 worth of change! 🙁

At the end of the first day of set up Tuesday evening I had accidentally left the cash box in sight.  It was at the back of my booth and on my bottom shelf, but still visible to passers by.  I didn’t realize it until I was already home for the night, but figured it would be OK. The Merchandise Mart has security and the seventh floor is closed to the public during when not show hours.  I got back in on Thursday morning I realized all my ones, fives and a few rolls of quarters were missing. It sucked.  I had Shelby to come in early to watch the booth while I ran to the bank to withdraw more change for the show. That night I made sure to take all the bills with me. I hid the cash box under the table and left the rolls of coins.

I arrived Friday morning to find that all my quarters were missing (again!!) .   Obviously someone targeting me the second time. Not only did they take my rolls of quarters, they also took our square reader so I couldn’t take any Credit Card payments for the first two hours of the show.  Luckily, my husband was able to drop off a backup square reader a few hours later.  It was stressful and unfortunate, but eventually resolved.

Aside from those two incidents, the show was really great! It was nice to see some familiar faces and repeat customers throughout the years. It’s always nice to hear laughter and see people connect with the work we make at Steel Petal Press.  In addition, we had our best year in sales.  So despite the thefts, overall I came out feeling really positive about the experience and have already signed up for next year.

Until then Chicago. Happy Holidays!!

September Rewind – Goodbye Summer, Goodbye September

As we say goodbye to summer here in Chicago, it’s also time to say goodbye to September! In a blink of an eye, Fall is upon us and we have continued to be busier than ever here at Steel Petal Press!

Renegade Craft Fair:
Per usual, we set up a booth at one of our favorite local markets called Renegade Craft Fair! This event provides a great opportunity for us to sell direct to new customers and help spread the Steel Petal Press brand.

Renegade Craft Fair 2018

While the weather stayed mostly sunny, it showed us the other reason they call it the “Windy City”… there were extremely strong wind gusts that were blowing things over, UGH!

Also during set up, both Shayna and Matt pulled muscles in their backs (because they’re old obviously!) so Renegade Craft Fair was DEFINITELY a team effort!

But, through the wind and the aches, we had one of our most successful shows since we’ve started doing it so I guess you could say it was worth it 😉

Holiday Hoopla:
While Holidays are busy for everyone personally, it’s also one of the busiest times for our retail and wholesale businesses! That means we have to begin prepping for that way in advanced. Our retail lady, Shelby, has been hard at work intaking orders we placed from other companies and making room for them on our sales floor. We can’t wait for our holiday shoppers to see all the great new gift items we have! Shayna has also been hard at work preparing the store schedule to accommodate the influx of sales, extended store hours, and of course making sure we all have much needed family time 🙂 Lastly, Rachel has already begun shipping out holiday card orders to all of our wholesale accounts as well as prepping our new holiday items to drop for retail customers!

Revolution Brewery’s Oktoberfest:
For those of you who have never been to our retail space, we are located right next to one a very popular local brewery’s restaurant location and each year they throw an Oktoberfest celebration. It’s two days of food, booze, bands, and generates a lot of foot traffic for us because it happens literally in front of the store. Unlike last year, we made sure we were full staffed which helped us all maintain our sanity! While we were not as busy as last year, possibly due to chillier weather, we were still very happy with the turn out and were able to have a successful day in our store!

America’s Mart – ATL:
In other exciting news, we finalized our participation at the America’s Mart tradeshow in January 2019! As you may have seen in a previous blog post, we just recently attended our first tradeshow in almost 3 years and it went so well we wanted to keep the momentum going! This will be the first time EVER that Steel Petal Press will show in Atlanta and we couldn’t be happier as we really been wanting to grow our presence in the southern region and figured this would be a perfect opportunity to do so!

 

Stay tuned to see what we get up too in October 🙂

August Is Done…And Here’s Everything We Did!

It’s hard to believe another month has come and gone, and with hints of cooler weather just on the horizon, it’s time to look back at the things we accomplished in August here at Steel Petal Press…WHICH WAS A LOT!

NYNow 2018 Shenanigans
After months and months of planning, it was finally time to execute Steel Petal Press’s first official tradeshow since 2015! And, we couldn’t be happier to report that it was a complete success (but not with out some stress, too!)

NY Now 2018 Tradeshow

First of all, the pallet arrived at the Javits Center with some minor damage which caused the stools we ordered to get lost in transit – UGH! Luckily, that was an easy fix.

Next, we (Shelby and Shayna) spent about 12-15 hours creating the right look and feel for the booth. There was the technical side of things like hanging shelves, assigning SKU stickers to products, and light adjusting. However, there were many creative things to do as well such as assemble a big envelope mural for the back wall and arrange furniture. It was very important to visually represent the Steel Petal Press brand as it is something we work hard to curate and display in every avenue of our business (because we are awesome, duh!) In the end, every bit of effort was worth it because the booth couldn’t have turned out better:
NY Now 2018 SPP Booth

We received so many compliments and strangers that just stopping by to look – it was so flattering!

At the end of of the show, we pulled in roughly 25 orders and built connections with about 40 additional businesses that we hope will order with us in the future. Needless to say – this far surpassed our expectations. Check out this newly updated stockist list to see all the kick ass stores that carry Steel Petal Press!

Shayna was also able to step out of the booth and place orders with other vendors for the Steel Petal Press brick & mortar location! We are as prepared as ever for the upcoming holidays with lots of great new items filling our shelves as well as restocking some old favorites!

The biggest hurdle we faced during the whole NYNow experience was during break down. The Javits Center lost our pallet and couldn’t find it until hours later. Stress and tempers flared but ultimately everything was packed up safely packed and we enjoyed a late flight out the next day (which meant we got to sleep in!)

New York wasn’t just all work! Shelby and Shayna were able to have some fun in their free time during the evenings. Shayna grew up in the DC area therefore her family would often went into the city for trips. She also lived in upstate New York for a brief time working for Women’s Studio Workshop. All-in all, she has a lot of connections in the city still including one of her oldest friends, Jillian, and her brother Jonah, who currently reside there!

To spare you the long, wordy details of all the fun we had…we’ll let these two photos speak for us – enjoy! :

(Left to Right: Shayna, Jillian, Bay (Jillian’s Partner), Shelby)

Cohen Siblings

(Left to Right: Jonah, Shayna – The Cohen siblings!)

Last, but not least, we planned one big night of doing something totally “New York” and decided to see the play adaptation of Mean Girls, especially because Shelby has never been to a play on Broadway! It was a glorious experience filled with awesome dancing, singing, and lots of laughing!

We are beyond pleased with the success Steel Petal Press had at NYNow 2018 and will be going back to exhibit next August! We can’t help but wonder what adventures await us next time 🙂

GO TEAM SPP!
High Five SPP

Helen The Heidelberg
In other exciting news for August, Shayna got a crash course in running our Heidelberg press, Helen!

Shayna’s good friend Kim, who owns Ramona & Ruth, came in from Nebraska for a couple days to share her knowledge and experience of working with a Heidelberg.

We even documented Shayna’s very first print EVER using Helen – look how cute and excited she is!!!!

What makes the Heidelberg such an exciting addition to our family is that it allows for us to print 2 to 3 times as much in an hour than our fully manual Chandler & Price press. However, we are also able to print using both machines at the same time which will prove helpful as our retail and wholesale businesses continue to grow!

Stay tuned for the continuing adventures of Steel Petal Press!
We hope you enjoy them as much as we do 🙂

July Rewind – Where The F*CK Did This Month Go…?!

Hi there!

We can’t believe July has come and gone already…

While this month was much less eventful than the previous (IN ALL THE RIGHT WAYS), we’ve still been busier than ever here at Steel Petal Press. Check out all the shit we’ve done in our July Rewind:

NYNow Preparation
As we’ve mentioned before, Steel Petal Press is making the HUGE commitment of exhibiting at the August ’18 NYNow. So, there’s been HUGE amounts of planning, organizing, and stressing going on around here! With the show beginning in a little over a week, the entire team has been working so hard to get everything ready to go. In fact, check out what our shipping pallet looks like: NYNow Pallet
Although, we think it looks more like some weird alien cocoon…
This is only a small fraction of the work left to do for and at NYNow but we know it’ll be all worth it in the end 🙂

*By the way, if you’re gonna be at NYNow, come visit Shayna and Shelby at the Steel Petal Press Booth (#7675)*

Holiday Hijinx
We know it’s a little odd to be thinking about the Holiday Season when we are still getting 80+ degree days here (atleast in Chicago!)! But, our new Holiday collection will be going live on our retail website August 13th…(that’s only like 5 days away, how exciting!)

Our team worked super hard this year to add some fresh and holiday-themed products like cards (duh!) and gift bags. We are really excited for everyone to see our new items for this upcoming release.
Please consider this sneak peek an early Christmas gift *wink, wink*:

Wholesale – Oh, Wow!
We’ve been incredible busy this past month with wholesale orders, but trust us – we aren’t complaining! We love that so many people share a love of snark and sass as well as an appreciation for handcrafted letterpress stationery. Most notably, we got a BIG ASS order from our wholesale account with Paper Source who ordered JUST under 6,000 units from us…I KNOW, RIGHT?! They’re favorites from us include Awesome Babies, Holy Shit – Engaged, Holy Shit – 29 Again, and Big Gay Wedding. We truly appreciate every wholesale order we receive…it keeps us busy and allows us to share Steel Petal Press worldwide!

We Met Mayor Ted From Queer Eye!

Last, but certainly not least, a special guest unexpectedly came into our store…Mayor Ted from the second season of Queer Eye! We couldn’t have been more excited to meet this kind and humble dude who is working so hard to make political and cultural changes in his hometown of Clarkston, GA! It was such an honor to meet him (and the Fab Five by extension, right?!)

That’s it for us and our July Rewind!
Stay tuned for all the exciting adventures August will bring 🙂

June Rewind – WHAT A MONTH!

It doesn’t seem possible to already be doing a June 2018 recap but here we are…

It’s safe to say that this past month has been one of the most busy/insane/strange/awesome months we’ve had in a long while here at Steel Petal Press. So, buckle up and get ready to take a crazy ride through this June Rewind:

Drunk Driving Disaster
Our month started off with quite a bang…
During an early weekend morning, a drunk driver crossed traffic lanes and ran into a bunch of bike racks which then proceeded to smash through our large front window:
Needless to say, there was glass and merchandise EVERYWHERE.

Steel Petal Press Steel Petal Press But, despite the obvious frustration and stress, no one was hurt AND the thank you to the amazing Steel Petal Press team (plus additional loved ones) who kicked ass during cleanup. A huge shout out to the other businesses in our neighborhood who were beyond generous!

Boarded Up Window = Break In
Unfortunately, we had to remain windowless for close to a month and we were graced with a big slab of plywood (can you sense the sarcasm?). One early morning, we received a call from our security company alerting us that our alarms were going off. Our video surveillance soon uncovered that two suspects had torn down the plywood “window” and spent about 10 minutes browsing through the store before triggering our alarm system and fleeing. Luckily, and also confusingly enough, they only made off with a mug, a couple tea towels, and some wine charms…? It was an interesting shopping list but considering it could have been much worse, we weren’t going to complain one bit!

Letterpress Out Of Lemons
You might be asking how we weren’t totally losing out minds…well, that’s fair. And the answer is that we almost were! Thankfully, we were able to take these series of negative experiences and make a really positive addition to the Steel Petal Press team: Enter our new Heidelberg Press! Steel Petal Press Initially, the Heidelberg was too big to fit through the door but we got creative and decided to bring it in through the window! Now Shayna just has to learn use this thing…

Hi’s And Bye’s To The Team
Steel Petal Press has also made some huge changes to our team this month. For starters, we sadly parted ways with our Studio Manager, Kat who has been with us for 3 years! She was a vital part of our team and we will greatly miss her! Our team also expanded as we said “hello” to our second full-time employee: Rachel!
Steel Petal Press
Since moving from Michigan to Chicago, she has seamlessly fit into our team. Her main roles include a lot of behind-the-scenes work such as managing wholesale accounts and shipping orders. Be sure to stop in and make her feel welcomed to our city 🙂

Lastly, we officially made our retail shop assistant, Glory, a permanent part of Steel Petal Press!
Steel Petal Press
You probably recognize her bright and shining face if you’ve ever dropped by our brick and mortar location! We are really happy to have her be one of the faces of Steel Petal Press.

Whoa, Wholesale Goals
One of our many goals this year was to really focus on building and expanding our wholesale business. We’ve added about 10-15 new stockists in this past month alone (be sure to check out our stockist list here) as well as take on some new sales reps all over the USA! WOOHOO!

Stay tuned for the Holiday 2018 release!
