The West Village | Greenwich Letterpress
Amy and Beth from Greenwich Letterpress grew up in a family of printers and you can see and feel their passion for paper the minute you step into their absolutely brilliant shop in Greenwich Village. Doug and I had a lot of fun meeting Beth and Amy on Wednesday evening. Doug went mad taking pictures so I have lots to show you. 

Along with their own beautiful letterpressed products Beth and Amy also stock the wares of many indie stationery companies including ours. I love their own line of cards and notcards especially these animal cards. It was really fun to walk around the store and see all the wonderful cards from designers that I have admired daily on the blogs and in magazines. Their store is chock a block full of great stuff and fun ways to display stationery and books and great little gift items. I really admire their generous commitment to produce beautiful stationery themselves and also to support so many other indie lines. This is the kind of store we all dream about finding as we wander around the pretty streets of the village - its a wonderful hidden treasure on Christopher St between Waverly Place and 7th Ave. You must go. You will walk away wanting to have your very own stationery store - I guarantee it!

No stationery store is complete without an army of bobble headed bunnies and German shepherds to take care of things!
Greenwich Letterpress also have a fun blog. You can keep track of what they are up to - new designs in the shop and upcoming events - I've just added it to my blog roll. They also have an Etsy shop - right here.

What great photos Fiona! Makes me feel like I'm right there in the shop. I love their displays - especially the wire card spinners. They have a very vintage feel to them.
