Handmade + Homegrown

OUR PROCESS

Hartford Prints!’s designs are always a collaboration over many iced coffees and multiple inspiration boards. We use the humor that our mom gave us and our dadís attention to detail to bring our stationery and designs to life, blending illustration, bold color, and modern graphics. We print everything by hand in our studio on our trusty Vandercook 4T and spend countless hours making buttons, lining envelopes, and telling stories. We love seeing our work in action and hope it inspires people to get a pen, lick a stamp, and know their local mailbox!

OUR STORE

We opened our retail doors on October 11, 2013. Since part of our company’s mission is to be an active community space, we always planned on someday opening a retail location. We just didn’t think it would happen so soon! We were fortunate enough to be the recipients of the iConnect grant from the City of Hartford, which partnered with local landlords to give small arts businesses subsidized rents. Our store is on the cutest street in all of downtown Hartford – Pratt Street. It has large windows, perfect for creating unique displays, and a bright turquoise storefront, which (we hope!) draws people in from the street.

It is the perfect place to grab a cup of coffee and come browse, chat, and shop on your lunch break!
