A Year-Round Celebration of the LGBTQ+ Community
As a queer-owned company, we recognize the importance of visibility. While the launch of this collection corresponds with the Pride month of June, the cards in this collection are designed as an everyday celebration of the LGBTQ+ community. Visibility is important, and our Pride collection will be available year round… because celebrating community doesn’t end just because the month changes.
We’re a queer, women-owned company on a mission to fill the world with more love. Each card sentiment of this collection is thoughtfully designed to inspire and uplift the recipient, from celebrating a new name and pronouns to recognizing the importance of chosen family.
Handwritten words of love and support matter, and all of our cards are blank inside to allow plenty of room to write about…
COMING OUT | NEW PRONOUNS | PRIDE MONTH | CHOSEN FAMILY | JUST BECAUSE | SELF-ACCEPTANCE | WEDDING CELEBRATIONS | CONNECTEDNESS | IDENTITY | BEING SUPER GAY
This collection has been a long time in the works as we’ve navigated the constraints of letterpress printing (that whole one color at a time thing is tricky!) with the highly identifiable rainbow Pride flag. But we did it!
True to our roots in craft manufacturing, each INK MEETS PAPER® card is designed and letterpress printed (on our antique printing presses) at our studio in sunny South Carolina.
Exclusive to the INK MEETS PAPER® Everyday Pride collection is our signature Pride envelope. With its message of “you make the world more beautiful” combined with the highly recognizable traditional 6-color Pride flag, the envelope is meant to be a declaration of pride throughout the entire mailing process. And whose day wouldn’t be instantly brightened just by seeing that envelope peeking out amidst the bills and junk mail?
Packed in a protective sleeve with a holographic rainbow label, each card in our pride collection is assembled & quality-checked by a team member.
Lots of love goes in and every card we make— what better way to let someone know just how much they mean to you?
Supporting our lgbtq+ community
A portion of our proceeds directly supports LGBTQ+ organizations! We especially love partnering with local non-profits. Organizations we’ve donated and partnered with include We Are Family and the Alliance For Full Acceptance (AFFA). With our move to Greenville, we look forward to connecting with organizations like Pride Link and Upstate Pride.
