F As In Frank Paper Goods Co.
I started F As In Frank Paper Goods Co. with my sister and brother-in-law. From 2013 to the beginning of 2019, we printed a range of cotton greeting cards, notebooks, coasters, bar towels and more, all made of eco-friendly and recycled materials and sourced locally. Everything was designed and hand printed in-house on our antique Chandler & Price letterpress machine, or using foil stamp or screen printed techniques. Our designs were inspired by life in the Pacific Northwest with a masculine and minimal aesthetic
All of our packaging and labels were also our own designs, and we used instagram as our main social media outlet to both promote our products and the sources of our inspiration, such as wildlife, scenery, adventuring and experiencing all that life has to offer. Our greeting card styles included a line of hand drawn trees paired with quotes from John Muir’s essays, animal silhouettes, hand lettered sentiments, and more.
