I started Plate + Page to create high quality pieces inspired by what inspires me in the culinary, literary and science worlds.

I'm Lisa, the founder and designer. I've always been involved in design and in the past 6 years or so have really followed my passion in printmaking, particularly screenprinting.
I love being able to combine inspiration from diverse fields with quality materials and interesting, sometimes experimental print processes.
Everything I create is hand produced in my local studio in Chicago using sustainably produced midwest made papers and archival inks.
I hope you enjoy these pieces as much as I have producing and developing them!

Frequently asked questions
Will I have to glue the bookplates in?

Nope! All bookplates are fully archivally adhesive with peel off backings.
The adhesive is strong and permanent however, so I would suggest taking care when positioning and affixing your plates.

What makes your recipe cards and bookplates so different?

Good question! I'm proud to create high quality, mindfully produced and well-designed paper goods that'll be loved for years to come! All pieces are hand screenprinted right here in Chicago on vivid, sustainably produced midwest-made paper stocks in unique designs.

Plate + Page bookplates are unique in that they're both hand printed *and* fully adhesive, which is hard to find when (rare) artisan bookplates require adhesive and many mass produced, printable, or readymade plates don't offer the color, heirloom archival quality and handmade design these offer.

What books are suitable for the bookplates?

Most all books are a great fit for the bookplate stickers! However, I would urge you to exercise caution with or avoid:

•Very fragile or very antique volumes

•Very thin-covered paperbacks (as the plates are on a little heavier stock, it may be a better option to utilize the endpapers for your label)

•Water- or humidity-damaged items (this could compromise the adhesive)

•Experimental books whose pages are non-porous, bumpy, fabric or smooth vinyl, etc. (the adhesive is made for paper surfaces and may not adhere properly or permanently to these)

If you have any other questions or concerns, let me know and I'll be glad to help!
