About ConcertinaPress

Sales 2,404
On Etsy since 2011
Video summary: Here's a little video of me packaging up some lovely customized Cape Cod Save the Dates, a design I created by digitally restoring an antique map when I lived on the Cape from 2003-2013.

What makes Concertina Press special?

Here are a few things that I love:
• The smell of the sea air
• Finding special shells or sea glass to take home and add to my hoard...I mean..."collection"
• Hot sun and cool breeze, with my toes in the sand, and a cold drink in my hand!

What about you? If you love the ocean as much as I do, I hope you'll take a look at my nautical and beach wedding invitations and stationery. My goal is to offer beautifully printed nautical stationery that you won't find ANYWHERE else. Not only that, with over a decade of design experience I can take care of everything for you! Then you can spend time looking forward to the big day, rather than worrying about the tiny details of your stationery.

Don't just take it from me though:

So how did it all start?
....................................

I majored in Studio Art in college, specializing in Graphic Design and the unusual art of bookbinding, and after school I worked in a scientific library where I discovered a treasure trove of gorgeous antique scientific illustrations.

Can you imagine my delight at opening an old journal from 1875 titled "Zoologische Abhandlungen" and seeing these gorgeous old pictures of fish and animals for the first time?

There are so many gorgeous old scientific illustrations collecting dust, I knew I had to figure out some way to bring them back to life!

After working in the library I worked in a gorgeous stationery shop on Cape Cod called "The Paper Tyger", and while I was there I learned all about stationery and invitation design. In the spring of 2011 when that shop sadly closed, I took the leap to start my own line, Concertina Press, combining my love of antique nautical illustrations and stationery. So far it's been wonderful and is absolutely the best job I've ever had!

If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to contact me via etsy or email - Ruth [!at] ConcertinaPress[!dot]com

Creating beautiful stationery is my passion and I'd love to work one-on-one with you to create some spectacular and stress-free invitations!
