Pikku

Pikku

Vermont based Pikku (love that name!) offers a little something for every paper lover. They first appeared at the National Stationery Show and are off to a fantastic start, with gorgeous gift wrap, hand screen printed, and letterpress designs.

I love their screen printed birch plywood calendars — so unique, and they can be either refilled for future years or used as art pieces when the calendar is finished. I’m also really digging their graphic gift wrap and the detailed handstitching work on their paper notions. Pikku is a must see for all of you paper cravers!

Pikku wares can be found at a variety of shops throughout the U.S., Canada, and Ireland. A detailed listing can be found on their website

Ilee Papergoods 2008 Letterpress Calendar

Ilee 2008 Letterpress Calendar

More letterpress calendar goodness, this time from Ilee Papergoods. The designer (and paper lover) in me is absolutely drooling over all of the printing techniques used in this calendar — letterpress, silkscreen, foil stamping, handpainted accents, and I love the darker background papers used for October, November, and December. $20.00 each at Ilee Papergoods.

Hmm, am I going to have to start collecting calendars now, too?
