Custom Stationery: Kinfolk Magazine

I think I picked this career at the right time. I am always amazed...excited...stoked when I get new custom orders for personalized stationery. I appreciate so much that people still want to express themselves in writing (on paper!). 

One of my clients, Kinfolk Magazine, embodies this movement back towards more personalized correspondance. Their brand is all about the value of connecting with people. I printed a set of flat notecards and subscription cards for them recently. If you have seen their magazine or visited their website you will get a sense of simplicity and beauty in that simplicity. These cards represent that. 

For this project we used an extra thick bamboo paper. I hadn't used bamboo paper until now, so it was fun to see the differences in printing on it. It is a super meaty paper. It is sturdy and substatial. If you receive a notecard on this paper you will know that whoever sent it to you has an appreciation of the texture and feel of the card. It makes you stop and feel it, and look at it a little closer. 

The printing was straight to the point. No ink on the notecard, and black ink on the subscription card. The paper is a slightly off white color which makes it feel very rich. 

The magazine is a great one to keep on your coffee table. The images are so beautiful you will want to keep flipping back through. A subscription would make the perfect gift!

I really love when they incorporate a quote on their printed pieces. This one reads "It isn't so much on the table that matters, as what's in the chairs." Cheers to that.
