Original Prints, Greeting Cards, and Handmade Books

Whittier, North Carolina | 970 Sales

Announcement    I'm a printmaker specializing in letterpress prints, greeting cards, handmade books, and other original art for your home or office. Most of my work uses linocuts and woodcuts—a labor-intensive process that begins with drawing a design onto a linoleum or wood block and carving it out with special tools. I pull some test prints by hand or with my small printing press, and carve out any final touches. Then the block is inked up with a hand-brayer and I pull the prints by hand or use my small sign press.

Everything in my shop is handmade, all the time. I use a variety of printmaking and painting techniques, and many of my greeting cards are reproductions of original paintings and prints. I love the feel of ink on paper, and love to create works that have that special hand-crafted touch.

Please inquire about custom orders--I am happy to discuss options to bring your ideas to life! Note: I only ship via USPS unless a customer requests special quotes for shipping through other carriers. I'm happy to arrange that and supply a shipping quote and special invoice if needed, but please inquire before purchasing.

Making small wonders from paper, prints, ceramics, and more

I make linocuts and woodcuts, greeting cards, handmade books, ceramics, paintings, and other home decor. Based in the mountains of North Carolina, I am a book artist and printmaker, a lover of nature and all things hand-crafted.

I first came to printmaking as an illustrator who wanted to make children's books. The magic of storytelling sucked me in, but the artistry of what comes with making objects by hand is what hooked me for the long haul. I love making books from start to finish—from the printing and binding of editioned works to making handmade paper for books, cards, and more.

Most of my books and prints are small editions, generally under 50 copies of each. Prints are hand pulled using a letterpress or an etching press—and sometimes using hand tools. As a writer, I've always been enamored by storytelling, language, and mythology. What I love most about printing is the ability to combine text and image in intriguing ways, and produce multiples of the project. My books use my own text unless they are collaborations with other artists.

Some of my explorations include painting and ceramics. You'll see those items here in small quantities.

I love it when something I've made makes someone else happy. Spreading happiness is fun...so I strive to create things that are unique, yet affordable.

Items in my shop are all handmade, all the time.

To view more of my artist books and editions, visit my website: laurenfaulkenberry.com and follow me on Instagram and Twitter (@Firebrandpress) to see works in progress! If you'd like to commission something special, please get in touch.

Thanks for visiting!

    My work revolves around a love of nature and storytelling. I make prints, paintings, and artist books, and sometimes create ceramic pieces, too. I like to make small pieces that make people smile.
