letterpress with purpose
As a printer with a heavy focus in the wedding industry, keeping the big picture in mind has become one of the core values here at lovelybones paperie. My mission is to give purpose to letterpress by being environmentally conscious and giving back to non-profit organizations that are making a difference.
respect ya motha’
lovelybones paperie is proud to be an environmentally-friendly printer! I work my hardest to remain energy-efficient by recycling, keeping the lights on using certified solar panels, and foregoing electric machinery. I hand measure and mix all of my Pantone ink colors and use only hand-powered machinery including a guillotine Chandler & Price paper cutter and a Chandler & Price Platen Press. Additionally, I only stock paper that is 100% cotton and/or FSC certified.
REUSE YOUR SCRAPS
In an effort to reduce my carbon footprint, I will be donating all of my unused paper scraps to Art Form San Diego. Art Form San Diego is a local non-profit organization that utilizes recycled goods to foster creativity, ingenuity and problem solving through art education for local students. To learn more about Art Form San Diego or to make a donation, please visit them on the web.
