Smock – Letterpress Designs on Luxury Bamboo Paper

in Baby Stationery & Birth Announcements

Smock is a new invitation and stationery line designed by Amy Graham Stigler (founder of Snow & Graham), and the first U.S.-based print shop offering printing on luxury bamboo paper.  Bamboo is truly sustainable: it’s the fastest growing plant on the planet and grown without pesticides.  Smock developed its own bamboo paper in partnership with a historic 500-year old European paper mill.

Smock is truly an eco-friendly green business.  They are powered by wind energy, and donate 1% of sales to environmental causes through 1% for the Planet. Their retail packaging is tree-free and petroleum free and certified biodegradable.  Smock employees are also subsidized with 20-week Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) memberships with a local organic farm.

But all that green business aside, Smock makes really beautiful letterpress stationery.
