L’Atelier Letterpress was born out of the passion of two paper lovers for this incredible printing technique. When they discovered letterpress in 2011, it was almost unknown in France. After acquiring their first Heidelberg press, they went to Australia and the United States for several months to train themselves with masters in this field, then back in France they opened L’Atelier Letterpress. After several years of offering wedding invitations and birth announcements, they decided to put an end to this activity following the lockdown of 2020, and to devote themselves exclusively to the creation of cards and art prints, always with the same attention to detail and quality.
Noteworthy Paper & Press
Noteworthy Paper & Press, a retail shop and stationery and gift brand, located in the beautiful mountain town of Missoula, Montana, was co-founded in 2008 by partners Taylor Valliant and Amy Dolan. Noteworthy has always been more than just a gift shop. To Missoulians and tourists alike, it is well known as a place to be inspired, a place to reflect and even a place to laugh. Listening to our customers giggle over greeting cards or helping another pick out a sympathy card and in turn hearing their sorrows, reminds us that we are all connected by our human joys and griefs.
Keiko Brodeur began making illustrated paper goods under the name Small Adventure in 2009 in order to explore being a self-taught illustrator after having graduated with a graphic design degree and working in a few different fields. She soon fell in love with creating illustrations for greeting cards and other products for her own small business. After several years of printing and shipping all her orders, both retail and wholesale, from home, she finally found a new home for her business in 2015 and moved into a lovely studio space in Los Angeles where all product is packed and shipped with the help of friends Nellie and Sara. Plant-based "plastic" sleeves that are biodegradable and fully compostable are used to package all greeting cards and prints and all packaging materials that arrive to the studio in supply shipments are re-used for outgoing shipments.

Whether you’re a seasoned native, or a curious traveller – take a closer look, and see what you might see.
UWP Luxe is a boutique line of pop-up greeting cards and laser-cut stationery. We believe that paper, the humblest of mediums, holds so much potential. We hope the integrity of our beliefs shines through in all of our products, from elaborately foiled pop-ups to dainty details printed onto envelope flaps. We have been recognized by the Greeting Card Association's Louie Awards with the coveted "Card of the Year" in both 2018 & 2019 and won the 2021 Louie Award for Paper Engineering & Innovation. Our creative team is housed in New Haven, CT inside a charming converted factory building; our loft is nestled amongst tinkerers and thinkers of all sorts. Our corporate headquarters are located in the office of Up With Paper, Mason, OH. We love what we do at UWP Luxe, and we thank you for letting us share our craft with you.
Samantha Hall Designs
I have always been in love with the traditional methods of painting. One of my favourite types of paint to use is watercolours. I love to layer and how delicate my art can be by using this type of medium. Once I have created motifs ready for pattern design, I then scan everything in and use Adobe Photoshop to create my patterns. This is my favourite part of the process as I get to unleash my style. My passions that influence my work include the great outdoors, amazing wildlife we have in the UK and around the world and adventures I have embarked on. I love to do collections based on places I have been to. I have been traveling across Canada, one of my favourite places I have ever been to, which is why you see a lot of Moose and Bears in my work!
