We just got a bundle of new goodies in from Sapling Press and they make for the perfect i love you, just because, you’re my best friend, thank you, you’re a nice mom/dad, we make a good team card.

In celebration of these new beauties, we interviewed Lisa, the mastermind behind these beauties at Sapling Press.

W: if you could letterpress anything what would it be, beside paper? an arm, a tree, a wall?

SP: probably my computer and i’d have it say “walk away from me and go print.”

W: what do you miss most about  the lo-fi days? rotary phones? typewriters? payphone? dropping off your film to walgreens?

SP: 2. boomboxes and the art of making the perfect mix tape

W: who’s your favorite stationery store, nah, we are just kidding you don’t have to answer that one, we already know the answer!

SP: no doubt!

Thanks again to Lisa at Sapling Press for her time in dong this small and sweet interview. Come by the shop to see more of her humorous-too-hot-to-handle notes.

vendor interview: mr. boddington’s studio

Nestled in a small unique cranny of the busy and ever-bustling New York City resides a small print studio known as Mr. Boddington’s studio. There is no real Mr. Boddington’s, only a character whom rather embodies all the characteristics of the individuals in the shop making a full, real portrait. At Wordshop, we have been long in love with the work of this print shop and with the warm welcoming of their new work into the shop we thought it a good time to call up the big sir and ask a few questions.

WS: this mr. boddington, is still a bit of a mystery to us. is he a manhattan resident? upper east side or lower east side?

Mr. Boddington’s Studio (MBS): Mr. Boddington is not a New York resident, actually. He was born in Great Britain and takes no particular place as his permanent residence. He travels the world home-hopping from yachts in the Bay of Bengal, castles in the countryside, treetop huts in the jungle, you name it. He is too attached to adventure to settle into one home. (Although he does visit New York City often where he entertains friends in a beautiful ivy-covered brick brownstone with a private garden terrace in the West Village).

WS: what’s his design sensibility? (translated into greeting cards of course)

MBS: Polished and quirky.

WS: what’s the best part pf the biz? the ascot? the witty profile? the smart papers?

MBS: Maintaining a sense of humor. We do this with Mr. Boddington as our muse and guide and it carries over into both our design and the overall vibe and camaraderie here in the studio.

Thank you so much to Mr. Boddington and his loyal greeting card creators workly humbly and beautifully in New York. Check out their work and blog here and escape into their world of whimsy.
