Giveaway Goodies: Steel Petal Press Custom Letterpress Job

Custom Letterpress Wedding Invitation Set

If there is one thing I love, it's paper. I don't know why but I am addicted to it. Or buying it anyway. So if you come across a crazy lady pawing at all the paper goodies in a stationery shop, you'll know it's me! I can't help but get all lovey dovey at the sight of good quality stationery. The feel of the paper between my fingers, the bright, beautiful ink colours that turn into magical works of miniature art. 

Together Forever
The other thing I love? Personalized products! And especially personalized stationery! I get goosebumps when I come across the use of personalized stationery in a novel I'm reading and instantly feel jealous. 
No, this is not an April Fool joke. Although it should be. 

Custom hand bound Guest Book or Photo Album

So we have agreed that I am mental about personalized stationery no? Well here is where Steel Petal Press comes in. The lovely lady behind this wonderful shop is none other than Shayna. She sells mostly letterpress cards (well duh, what else have I been talking about?) and pretty journals as well as custom invitations that you can customize to your hearts desire!

Birthday Cocktail

As I said, the lovely Shayna has generously sponsored a $50 gift certificate off any custom letterpress job. The sky is the limit! You could create your very own wedding invitations, birthday cards, season's greetings, you get the picture. Mother's and Father's Day is just around the corner, you may want to get them something special!

Best Mom EVER
