In 2021, I started tinkering with letterpress and helping friends put beautifully simple stationery in the mail. One year later, the mission for Pretty Peptalks remains the same.
Create beautifully simple stationery perfect for all life’s pep talks.
Thank you for supporting my small business and watching it grow. I started this journey passionate about paper and craving connection. Here we are, 365 days later and I’m filled with gratitude. On our first birthday, I thought it only appropriate to say thank you for setting my dreams in motion.
I also wanted to invite you to take a walk down memory lane with me.
Our first weekend fully engaged in all things letterpress. An idea takes shape. Wheels get set into motion.
With a lot of liquid courage, we hit publish on our website. Pretty Peptalks is born.
We continue our letterpress learning with help from the experts at Swell Press.
One girl. Lots of pre-orders. A lot of letterpress love mailed out and on its way.
Having exhausted our initial capital and stretching the availability of our printing partners, we launch a Kickstarter and watch it skyrocket to success.
Our first platen press, Pearl, comes home to Dallas.
Our first custom stationery order is commissioned and completed.
Pretty Pep Talks: The book is published. You like it. You really, really like it.
We further our letterpress learning with help from the experts at Belle & Union. We host (and survive) our first Gray Friday VIP event, as well as Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales. Our first two custom holiday card orders are commissioned, printed, and shipped.
Pretty Peptalks is 100% female and founder owned. We continue to stay true to our roots and wake up every day striving to make beautiful things for thoughtful people. Thank you for being one of them.
