Back to School Stationery Special

Macon YorkComment

Summer is a season of abundance and light, gathering and community. As it comes to an end, we have much to be thankful for. Each of our summers surely has been made better by the generosity and thoughtfulness of the wonderful people in our lives. Some examples may include:

  • Neighbors who watered the plants while you were away
  • Friends who hosted fun dinner parties
  • Family members who opened their homes for summer visits
  • Volunteers who helped at Vacation Bible School
  • Camp counselors who made summer camp so enjoyable for the kids
  • Customers who supported your small business
  • Pet and house-sitters who enabled you to travel worry-free

Who are the people in your life who have contributed to your summer joy?

What better way to show our heart-felt appreciation than a hand-written thank you note? While instant digital messages are great for quick communication, nothing beats opening your mailbox and finding a note from a friend in the midst of bills and junk mail. Think of how the last hand-written note you received made you feel. 

Wouldn't you like to give that feeling to those you love?

"There’s nothing more delightful than an unexpected appreciation."

– HELEN ELLIS from the Garden & Gun article, When to Write a Thank-You Note

  • People who are hard-to-shop-for or who "have it all" (the holidays will be here soon!)
  • And of course, your MOTHER (moms love stationery!)

We offer custom stationery year-round, just not at this special price. This price is for the colors and typefaces listed and for a text-project only (no images, borders, etc). Feel free to respond to this email for pricing information for further customization. 

Meet our Summer Intern!

We're so excited to welcome our first summer intern, Leah Craig Fieser! It's been a busy spring at Cotton Blossom Press and we're ready to grow our team. Leah Craig will be helping out with studio organization, marketing projects, letterpress printing, and more. Welcome Leah Craig!

Leah Craig Fieser
I feel in love with paper when I worked at an upscale paper and gifts store in college. I loved working with brides and seeing the smile on their face when the finalized piece came in. I spent many happy hours flipping through the large invitation books! Over the last decade I've worked in the areas of marketing, communications, fundraising, and event planning.  I'm currently the Event Director for an animal rescue organization in Asheville where I live with my husband and two fur babies. I'm thrilled to spend part of my summer working with Macon whose work I have admired for years (we actually met because she was selling her beautiful letterpress pieces at an event I was directing two years ago!). I look forward to learning her art form and helping her business continue to grow. -- Leah Craig
