Lasting Impressions

"It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye." - Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

 Sunlit Letterpress has exceeded our expectations with the design and production of our business cards and product tags!

Erin McCall, award winning owner and designer of Sunlit Letterpress, guided us through the whole design and printing process. Erin has been instrumental in manifesting our vision through the collaborative process of designing our logo, tag line and blog among other details. Erin's own process of printing is described on her website, "using vintage printing presses from the late 1800's and early 1900's to craft each piece of stationary by hand".
"A job is what we do for money; work is what we do for love."
Marysarah Quinn

There is so much more to a project than the product that you present in the end...there is a story to this one that isn't entirely ours to tell. Erin fleshes out what this year's challenges are from her perspective on her blog 
Our new business is all the more precious in meaning. We developed this vision in the pursuit of a sustainable lifestyle.  Considering the many loved ones, their needs, as well as our own to be creative. As mothers we have experienced the constant challenges to carve out the shape of our lives pursuits while keeping relationships in balance. 
The deep gratitude we express here is beyond words. The layers of intangible are now a historic part of what you see in these beautiful, tactile examples of the art of weaving life, craftsmanship....
"We are all apprentices in a craft where no one ever becomes a master." Ernest Hemingway
All our best of blessings to Erin and her family.
