Scenes from around the Studio: May Edition

It’s been a fun and busy month at Steel Petal Press!

For months we’ve been hard at work, designing, creating and printing 40+ new cards, bookmarks, magnets, mugs and gift wrap. Seriously, we start planning our May release in January. First we decide what new products we want to create, and start working on designs.  We go through several iterations of many designs to further refine what we have, how it looks and what it says.  Once all the designs are ready to move forward, we go into production.  Printing and packaging all the cards in house takes several weeks of work, especial with a big release like the one we just completed.  We also do a full catalog redesign, removing items we have discontinued and adding all the new items.  After that we photograph all the cards and get them onto our online shops.  It’s definitely an undertaking and it takes multiple months from start to finish.

I am particularly excited to share our new hand ILLUSTRATED line of cards (pictured below) by owner, Shayna Norwood. We are taking our love of hand drawing back to our roots with this beautiful new line of cards.

Aside from working on the big new release I also traveled to the National Stationery Show again this year as a buyer. I have always loved being at the Stationery Show either as an observer walking, exhibiting or buying. It’s such a lovely community of people.  Paper People are the BEST people.  I know so many people from the years I’ve spent exhibiting, buying and from the Tradeshow Bootcamp community so in some ways it feels a little bit like “coming home.”

I will leave you with this calming photo taken on my flight back to Chicago. After a whirlwind month of May, it’s nice to be home and we have some exciting big things cooking!!

If you’re interested please follow us on instagram for weekly updates about the shop and what we have in store.
