About

We Were All Born Unicorns

In 2013, I started Lucky Horse Press. My background is in graphic design where much time was spent at a computer so I decided to change up the routine and learn a new skill. I took my first letterpress class in the winter of 2010 and realized that I really liked the tactile experience of printmaking not to mention practicing a craft that has bred skilled tradesmen through apprenticeship. The work place was usually corporate and serious and I felt the inability to express honest thoughts so greeting cards became a great creative outlet. After having found a Brooklyn-based letterpress studio near my home at the time, the space became a grounds for creativity, experimentation and to get my hands dirty.

My first Etsy shop items were Mexican sugar skull cards. I liked that a taboo subject such as death can be made beautiful and celebrated because it is very much a part of life. I am motivated by sentiments and memories that are unspoken and that I sometimes have difficulty articulating. I want to create moments (sweet, awkward and funny alike) on social stationery that come to life when someone personalizes them with a note. When I work, I try to instill happiness and optimism in my creations because I really do believe these notions are passed from the sender to the recipient.

The creative process is simple. I start by drawing scenarios that come to mind and when the design is finalized the files are sent to production for the next step. Printmaking is my favorite part as I get to see my creations become real. Whether I am using a Vandercook press at the studio or silk screening in my basement, I try to have a finished product goal set before each print session. Despite being my favorite part printing is also the most unpredictable due to variables of human error and mechanics. However, these factors keep me humble and on my toes as I resolve printing issues while remaining productive at the same time.

In the near future I would like to expand into soft toys and other stationery goods such as notebooks and stickers. Most of all, I look forward to sharing my world with everyone.
