Stephanie Albares


Handmade quality with a clean mod aesthetic.

Hello! My name is Stephanie Albares and I run Saltbush Avenue. It all began as a blog about stylishly updating my modest home, and then grew into this all-encompassing passion project of creating home decor using beautifully tactile materials.

I work as a graphic designer, and my multi-disciplinary approach to design applies with Saltbush Avenue as well. I make every item myself, in a range of media: felt, paper, fabric, and hand-pulled letterpress prints. Many products make use of vintage materials or vintage methods.

I like fine papers, typography, plainspoken midmod aesthetics, and checking in on my garden with my cat helper. I'm originally from Phoenix, Arizona (with a BFA in printmaking from ASU) and have been living in Tasmania for several years now. I love cacti as much as anybody but Australian plants are something special.

(COMMISSIONS: I'd be happy to work with you on a commissioned letterpress design, or even if you're looking for a designer who is experienced with branding/identity for small businesses. Drop me a line and we can chat.)

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

I'd be delighted to work with you on a custom letterpress commission. Recently I printed the business cards and swing tags for Ivi Made, a luxury Tasmanian maker of minimalist kangaroo-leather accessories.

Gift wrapping and packaging

I like to re-use shipping boxes where I can, or use kraft packaging and recycled boxboard. All prints will be sent in a cello sleeve for protection against the elements, since most of my products have to travel a long way from Australia. If you'd like gift-wrapping for a product, just let me know (I'd be happy to throw that in with your order).

Shipping from Australia

The shipping time from Australia to other parts of the world can vary. 5-10 working days seems to be my experience in shipping items to the US and the UK. If you need a faster delivery option, please get in touch with me.

Wholesale availability

All of my letterpress prints are limited editions, due to the constraints on how many prints one person can create at a time :) So large quantities of wholesale merchandise is a no-go, but I'm happy to supply stock for your small shop or market.
