About

WHY | I started designing cards because I had a hard time finding unique designs with poetic text and exceptional compilation. I produce the kind of cards I like to buy! In today’s market, my customers are telling me they want and appreciate Inimitable paper products. The Letterpress medium enables me to really “create” with color, type and depth. A well defined and finished greeting card can actually serve as a gift. Many of my Letterpress cards are suitable for framing. Custom work is always welcomed.

BECAUSE | I am without a doubt a hands-on individual. Every aspect of the designing, writing, styling and printing can be created in my studio the way I visualize the end result to be. No debates, no meetings [ just me vs me HA! ]

LOVE | I love the assemblage of fonts, texture, subtle details and artisan paper In combination with the art of Letterpress printing. A message or motif comes alive on paper when letterpressed. For me this is the ideal way to add depth, personality or brand to a creation.

PURIST | From a purist standpoint, I really aim for the traditional qualities that are Letterpress and combined them with my style preferences for a distinct relief. Working with deckled edge paper it must be hand fed and registered individually one by one. This creates an enduring craftsman look that I find extraordinary and satisfying. Sourcing products locally I am also able to support fellow artisans along the way.

BACKGROUND | My entire career centered within retail buying and marketing. No longer willing to work for a large company, I started Fresh Heifers in 1998 after returning from a sojourn to Italy. The future of Fresh Heifers unfolds everyday and I am always in pure bliss from the adventure of it all!

FRESH HEIFERS | Growing up on a dairy farm in Missouri was my inspiration for branding. A photo taken in our milk barn in 1963 of the perfect jersey cow, the obvious logo. You can leave the farm, but it never really leaves you and I am glad for that.
