At INK MEETS PAPER, we like words. Even moreso, we like handwritten words: a note cherished because of the sender’s loopy handwriting, because of the thoughtful sentiment, because someone took the time to address and mail that note. Handwritten communication is one of the most authentic interactions you can share with someone, and we’re passionate about creating products to celebrate and uphold the beauty of the handwritten and the handcrafted.

BACKGROUND + HISTORY

Creatives and makers at heart, we’re Allison and Jamie Nadeau, the wife-and-wife owners of INK MEETS PAPER. We’re passionate about producing thoughtful, deliberate products that help to spread more love in the world.

INK MEETS PAPER initially started in 2006 with custom stationery and invitations for friends and family. Along with a move to Charleston, SC and corporate jobs as an editor and interaction designer, we discovered a love for the craft of letterpress printing in 2008 with a printmaking class at a local art studio. After spending so much time behind the screen, it was refreshing to be so hands-on and involved in the physical process of creating a printed piece. That same year, we purchased a 1,000+ pound Chandler & Price printing press (made in 1923). With quality craftsmanship and attention to detail, the INK MEETS PAPER® greeting card line launched in 2010.

Since then we’ve designed, printed, and shipped hundreds of thousands of cards from our Charleston, SC studio, and we’re constantly humbled that people choose our products to share love.
