National Taco Day!

Taco Gift Wrap Wrapping Paper

Holy cow do we love tacos at Steel Petal Press!  In celebration of national taco day (Wednesday 10/4 2017) I thought we’d share some of our favorite taco products.

First we have my favorite:  TACO WRAP, designed by Steel Petal Press and printed in Chicago.  Our Taco Wrap is available in our brick and mortar location and also online HERE.   You can use this wrap on taco day or any day of the year.  (At Steel Petal Press really we love tacos all year round)

We also have these great items from independent vendors available at our brick and mortar location in Logan Square.  Below are a few of our favorite Taco gift items around the shop.

Also be sure to stop by our favorite Taco joint directly across the street from Steel Petal Press; Dos Amigos.  We recommend the chorizo, pastor or shrimp taco.  Be sure to grab a margarita while you’re there and some extra green salsa!

Resist! New Protest Cards from Steel Petal Press

Since the Election, the Inauguration, and the Women’s March on Washington we’ve had many requests for cards to use to communicate with our elected officials. We’ve turned your requests into a reality with a special INAUGURATION release of 6 cards we feel address many issues close to our hearts.

What does it mean to be American? The Statue of Liberty – symbol of american open doors. Affordable healthcare. A quote from American civil rights leader and hero, Martin Luther King Jr. The services provided by Planned Parenthood. And the Environment.

You can view the full collection HERE.

These cards are about democracy, freedom of speech and what it means to be American.  I want to focus on what brings us together as Americans and not what divides us.  It is my hope these cards will not only be used to communicate with elected officials but could also be used to start meaningful dialogue with Americans with opposing viewpoints.  What do we have in common?  Not what drives us apart.   I am proud to be American, proud of the Statue of Liberty and what it stands for, and proud of having man like Martin Luther King Jr. as a part of our collective history.
A percentage of the proceeds of all our profits go to giving back to charities we believe in:
NRDC, Chicago Women’s Health Center, ACLU, ADL, Planned Parenthood and more…

I Am American Protest Card

So far, I’ve had a great response from my customer base.  These cards have been resonating with lots of people who feel a little helpless in today’s political climate.
I did get one Trump supporter trolling on my Facebook page who responded “is there a card that says sore loser, liberal snowflake?”  To which I responded these cards are not about being a sore loser, but about freedom of speech and what it means to be American. It turns out he was almost mugged in Chicago for having a trump sticker and was called a Nazi.  Of course being attached sucks, but it was particularly hurtful to him because most of his wife’s family was killed in the holocaust by actual Nazis. And here’s where we found some common ground.  My family is jewish and even though they fled Europe before the holocaust, I found a place of empathy and understanding with him even though I don’t agree with his politics.  And to me, that is one small step forward in the right direction.
