It’s nice to meet you!

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.

INK MEETS PAPER Press Room

Print Shop + Production Studio

All of our greeting cards and paper goods are designed, printed on antique printing machines (one color at a time!), assembled by hand, and shipped from our studio in the Park Circle neighborhood of North Charleston. Our oldest printing press is a 10×15 Chandler and Price press from 1896, and the youngest is a 10×15 Heidelberg Windmill press from 1959.

INK MEETS PAPER Flagship Store

Flagship Store

Our flagship retail shop is located in the same building our production studio. Shop the full INK MEETS PAPER®️ greeting card and stationery collection as well as a curated assortment of pens and calligraphy supplies. We also carry a selection of hand-marbled leather journals and accessories by Atlanta-based artisans Glad & Young. More often than not, you’ll see the presses humming behind the glass-walled press room, as we make and assemble all of our products in this very location.

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 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.
