Ink Meets Paper Stationery



As a letterpress paper goods company, we’re all about the power of handwritten correspondence and quality printed materials.

– Allison Nadeau, Co-owner/Creative Director


Nothing beats the feeling of receiving a beautiful note in our mailbox, and design and letterpress printer Ink Meets Paper is committed to reproducing that feeling again and again. Co-owner/creative director Allison Nadeau and co. took their recent domain change to as an opportunity to create stationery that reflected their passion.

“We kept our classic color palette of black/white/kraft throughout all of the pieces,” she explains, “and used the ink splatter elements to tie the business cards and stationery pieces together.”

Using a recycled 50 pt. kraft chipboard, the classic black imprint on the business cards is accentuated by beautiful black-edge painting. The clever ink splatter patterns on the back are carried throughout the stationery set, including the envelope liner produced on a Speckletone 70 lb. Text from French Paper Co., and those adorable A2 notecards – Nadeau’s favorite.

“I especially love how these smaller A2 notecards turned out on Neenah’s Crane Lettra 110 lb. stock,” she says. “They’re the perfect size for quick notes. The line at the bottom for the writer’s signature and email address not only makes them versatile for all of our team members, but it also subtly includes our social media handle (@inkmeetspaper) within the website address for another connection point.”

As this simple yet satisfying stationery design proves, it’s not about what happens when ink meets paper, but what you make of that union thereafter.
