About

Letterpress Greetings & Handwritten Happiness

We're husband and wife, Daniel and Allison Nadeau. Our interest in letterpress started with a desire for hands-on interaction and creation. We both had corporate jobs where we sat in front of computers most of the day, and we longed to create something more tactile and physical. After taking a printmaking and letterpress class at a local art studio, we were hooked.

Our process starts with sketches and brainstorming sessions for card designs and themes. From there, we narrow down a direction and refine. Most of our card designs are hand drawn, and then scanned and vectorized to be made into photopolymer plates.

We cut down big stacks of 100% cotton paper on a vintage Chandler & Price Craftsman paper cutter. Ink is mixed by hand to the Pantone guide, and each card we print is handfed, one color at a time, through our 1920s Chandler & Price printing press in our sunny South Carolina studio.

We believe that handwritten communication is one of the most authentic interactions you can share with someone.

Each INK MEETS PAPER™ card supports this belief in the handwritten and the handcrafted. The 100% cotton paper is thick, and the ink is mixed by hand. Each piece is printed one color at a time on an antique printing press.

- STANDARD SHIPPING: We use USPS First Class Mail (which allows us to give you the best shipping rate), and all orders ship from our studio in Charleston, South Carolina. Once your order leaves our studio, delivery typically ranges from 3 to 5 days, although it has been longer in some cases (even up to 2 weeks). Please note: order tracking is not available with First Class Mail.

/ / / International Customers / / /
We ship internationally from our studio in Charleston, South Carolina using USPS First Class Mail International. Every so often a package can get stuck in customs. Please be aware that we can’t be responsible for these delays. It’s nearly impossible to track a package once it leaves our country. If you require tracking for a time-sensitive package, please contact us directly so we can arrange a faster shipping agreement with FedEx or UPS.

You, as the buyer, are responsible for any additional fees that may be charged at customs.
Refunds and Exchanges
As INK MEETS PAPER™ is a small printing studio, we are unable to offer returns on our merchandise. If there was an error on our end (for example, we ship you the wrong item), we will gladly correct the problem at no cost to you; however, we cannot be held responsible for merchandise damaged during shipping.
Additional policies and FAQs
Due to the nature of letterpress printing, variations in impression and color may be noted. This is the part of printing by hand on antique equipment that we love, as it really does ensure you get a one-of-a-kind piece. We do our best to accurately photograph and represent the print you will receive.
