*CHRISTMAS DEADLINE* December 3rd is the last day to place an order for delivery by Christmas (shipping within the US). Any orders placed after December 3rd will be shipped in January. We understand that this is an early deadline, but we want to ensure that we're able to keep up with our order volume, and that we allow enough time for seasonal USPS delays. International customers, please note that shipping can take 3-4 weeks. Thanks so much for your understanding and support!

*DISCLAIMER* We can no longer guarantee delivery times due to shipping delays caused by COVID-19. Thanks for continuing to support our shop!

In 2014, I (Natalie) went in search of something unique. I was inspired by all things with a white + gold combination, and I wanted to be able to personalize it. After weeks of research with no luck, I set out to create the product I had in mind. The ring dishes I came up with were entirely unique, and the response was overwhelming.

Gift-giving is a dying art. In a world where automated manufacturing is taking over, finding something unique at an affordable price is nearly impossible. I created The Painted Press to ensure that gifts could still be personal, intentional, and affordable.

Through the years working on this business, we have had many incredible opportunities. From being featured in many major publications, to celebrity events, to every single meaningful conversation with a customer, this business has been the biggest blessing. It has allowed me to work closely with my family, who have all played a major role in keeping the operation going, and it has provided the opportunity to meet and talk to hundreds of people I never would have had the blessing of knowing otherwise.

It is because of all our customers and their support that I have the ability to stay up late painting and call it my job. It is because of you that this dream I didn’t even dare to dream out loud has become my reality. It is because of you that I get to employ college students in need of work. It is because of you that we have food to put on our table each night. And in return, we seek to shop small and support other Etsy shops. So seriously, you make all the difference. Thank you.

Xo,
Nat

What are these made out of? Are they fragile?

I create my dishes out of air dry clay for multiple reasons! We are able to paint watercolor onto them unlike ceramic dishes, giving our shop a very distinct and unique style. I am also able to create them at an affordable price. It is my goal to make gift giving easy, personal and affordable. Because loving your friends and family shouldn't have to break the bank!
LASTLY, they are SO durable! If it falls off the counter, no worries. We actually drop them in front of people at craft shows to showcase durability!
