Well it’s been an incredible journey so far and I’m starting to make headway with my little boutique business at Waihi Beach. I have met many wonderful customers in the last few months – thank you so much for your support and we now have some gorgeous brands in stock. I am in awe of my suppliers with their unbending attention to detail not only in their own branding but also in their customer service and production process. I very proudly stock such names as Kowtow, Arielle Mermin, Just another fisherman, Jas Sparrow, Elk, Nancy Bird, Ricochet, Stand Issue, Seargent Pretty, I love ugly and more… they have all inspired me to create my own beautiful brand which today lead me to the gorgeous printhouse of Magpie Press in Whakatane who are specialist letterpress printers.
Letterpress is a very ‘hands on’, traditional method of printing that is creates an ‘imprint’ in the paperstock giving a gorgeous tactile feel. Thankfully the shipshape logo transfers beautifully in such a method. You can be sure we will have more letterpress items in the near future.
I have always been fascinated by any handcrafted, artisan process particularly with my background in jewellery making.
I hope you get a sense of joy in the images that we took today as we visited Magpie Press and their 1960’s beauty – Hildegarde.
