Hello, and welcome to the new Ashley Buzzy Lettering + Press website, complete with a paper shop!
I (Ashley) and we (more people than just me) have worked really hard to create this small but powerful little line of paper goods. I have handled all of the design and concept - and letterpress. Our trusty printers have helped us out with the thermography and foil. My friend and coworker and assistant and helpful boss-lady Laura has come to the studio countless times to co-design some pieces (and offer encouragement). The amazing Haley Sheffield has shot all of the pictures for the shop at my last-minute demand, which has been a game-changer. And my intern/assistant Lauren has been around 2-3 times a week to haul stuff and pick up letterpress plates and do all the things nobody wants to do. I seriously needed every bit of their help or else I would be buried under a sea of folded notecards (and we still kind of are).
As with any endeavor, at a certain point you just have to rip off the bandaid and try. Expect to see changes, improvements and new products OFTEN. Probably lots of changes. I am human and I'm sure I've made typos like a human.
But, I hope you see the heart of this new line: it's paper for everyone. It's paper for someone who doesn't really know how to say what they want to say. For awkward people. People who have gotten nowhere trying to be sweet. People who need a way to just tell it like it is.
And, of course, brides. Brides who are ready for something beautiful and simple. Something mostly custom and gorgeously printed, but for those (like most of us) who have too many emails in their inbox and project deadlines to come chat with me about custom invites for hours and hours. I feel you girl. Come get your stuff and let's get this show on the road.
Thanks for stopping by - there will be more to come!
