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!!

Party Party

Party Party in Fairfield, CT is the one stop shop for every event! Mary Thornton has worked hard for seven years in event planning and in the last year opened a store. Her store offers gifts and stationery for everyone's needs. We had to hear more about Mary and Party Party!!! How many years have you been in business? I have had my shop for 1 year, but my event planning business for 7 years.

Do you have a website, if so, what's the address? My website is www.partypartyfairfield.com.

If you were to sell something other than stationery, what would it be? When I am not selling stationery I love to plan parties, of course!

Besides the obvious (stationery), what is your favorite thing to give as a hostess gift? One of my favorite hostess gifts is a box of Haute Papier letterpress coasters (no kidding!) I also love a beautiful bouquet of fresh flowers or linen cocktail napkins.

Here at Haute Papier, we love to eat! When in NYC for the National Stationery Show, where is your favorite place to grab dinner? I am a New Yorker from way back so I have lots of favorites in the Big Apple. Love Balthazar and Union Square Cafe. Santa Fe on the Upper West Side has great Mexican and killer margaritas.

We can't wait to see you in NYC Mary!! Only a few more months until the National Stationery Show!

The HP Fleet GROWS Again!

Gretel is here!  We're excited to announce the arrival of another press to our ever growing fleet here at Haute Papier!  Our new 10x15 (late red ball model) Heidelberg Windmill was delivered and brought right into our production schedule yesterday.  We've been coveting a Windmill for a while now and when the opportunity arose, we knew we had to pounce on it.  We're excited to show you all of the new products we've begun designing just for her as we continue to grow the Haute Papier line.  Welcome aboard Gretel!

Paper Sale!

Post10.4 During our big move, we came across tons of paper used during various projects.  I'm talking really nice paper - couture project worthy!  But since we don't have plans for the paper we figured we would have a little "studio" sale.  (Think yard sale, but we don't have a yard!)  We're selling the paper by the box for only $30 per..  The paper is all different shapes, sizes and colors.  We even have some envelopes to make some DIY stationery.  I know, I know!  At $30 per box, this is a steal of a deal!  In fact, I'm rethinking it right now so hurry before I change my mind!

Union Street Papery

How many years have you been in business?

I just celebrated my 11th anniversary earlier this month! I have been in the industry, however, for almost 25 years!

Do you have a website, if so, what's the address? www.unionstreetpapery.com

If you were to sell something other than stationery, what would it be? Besides the obvious (stationery :)

Probably a blend of vintage modern furnishings with old world antiques and decor details. I love to combine straight lines with organic shapes, colors and patterns! We did this with the design of our Bridal Bungalow, which turned out beautifully!

what is your favorite thing to give as a hostess gift?

I love printing gift enclosures and calling cards for hosts... They are so useful and many people don't think of printing them up for themselves!

When in NYC for the National Stationery Show, where is your favorite place to grab dinner?

I love the vibe of the Meatpacking district... the cobblestone streets, and the variety. Fig and Olive is a frontrunner... also, Colicchio and Sons, which I visited for the first time this past show

Any other tidbits about your store you'd like to share? We've recently moved to a beautiful carriage house behind our old storefront. Now situated on a garden courtyard, we have 2 full levels, one dedicated to bridal invitations and the other is our main store, with everything from greeting cards to giftwrap, personalized stationery, gifts and invitations!
