A Peek Inside - Our Brainstorming Process!

It is certainly an exciting time for Haute Papier as we gear up for the 2012 National Stationery Show.  We thought we would show you a teeny tiny bit of how our new product R&D process works.  What you see above is a photo of what we call "The Board".  Well, it's actually a few boards, but you get the idea.  Nothing gets ink until it's decided on and not changing unless absolutely necessary.  This, of course, really means that something just doesn't work in the end.  Live and learn, right?!?  And below, "The Wall".  These are the finals and our true inspiration to keep on going until May.  Everything is look awesome and we can't wait to launch!


Real Party: Karen's 35th!

Check out these two color letterpressed birthday party invites we printed for Karen from Soiree San Francisco!  We actually got to meet Karen a couple of weeks ago when she was in town for her "day job" at the CEB.  She visited our warehouse in Rosslyn to meet our presses and design some custom personal stationery - we can't wait to share that too... she's keeping with the fuchsia and adding one of our favorite new elements - gold foil!   We hope you have a wonderful birthday in Tahoe Karen!!
