stationery to brighten your day!

The Grits stems from my love of letterpress and sending mail. I learned the value of a handwritten note in college when my partner and I began a written correspondence and fell in love. I am infinitely inspired by my Southern roots, my travels, and the outdoors. I hope to inspire others to write to those they love and make enduring connections with people.

All of my cards are printed individually by hand with patience and care on an antique platen press, and every ink is custom mixed by hand. It's my favorite labor of love :)
