Shipwright & Co.
Atop Mt. Veeder in Napa / California / USA
Two old friends, Jenny Kruch and Jessie Alberts, share a love of art, design, coffee, food, and of course, beautiful letterpress printing. They print with low-VOC rubber-based inks, use vegetable oil and other natural products to clean their press, and the cotton used to make their paper is a by-product of the cotton industry and recognized by the EPA as a recovered fiber.
Favorite card ever received: Really any card that is handmade. Whether it's collaged, drawn, or crafted by fellow letterpress printers or artists, we love handcrafted things!
Favorite quote: Jen: "Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you've imagined. As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe get simpler." - Henry David Thoreau
Jessie: "It takes as much energy to wish as it does to plan" - Eleanor Roosevelt
Favorite food & drink: We eat a lot of fruits and vegetables from our gardens and we love to cook with what we've grown... plus a whole lot of butter and cheese. And wine, of course!
