We are a family business that specializes in personalized goods; we believe that a personalized gift will always be remembered and treasured. It's hard to say when it really started because it came about so gradually. Before selling online, my parents sold my products in our brick and mortar shop. It's safe to say, though, that I had an official start when I started selling in my Etsy shop around 2011. From that date, I am committed to offering unique products of the highest quality at a great price.
I'm the son of wonderful parents who have a printing shop dedicated to create wedding stationery. As I grew up surrounded by Chandler and Price letterpress machines, inks, plates, ribbon and paper I wanted to create something, which led me to explore working with wood. My parents encouraged me to establish my own business. They taught me that I should manufacture all my products with the same craftsmanship they put into their stationery; this remains a major inspiration for me. I believe in the art of craftsmanship; each individual product is carefully made by hand. I have chosen to make my products of reclaimed pine wood that is more than 100 years old, and has lived a laborious life as country cottages, barns, mills, or furniture. Every piece of wood is unique and carries a beautifully distressed texture. To accentuate the individuality and character of the wood, I use a deep, sophisticated walnut stain. Even if two products were made from the same pattern and wood, they are all unique!
The boxes and books have developed over the years. My siblings, Irasema and David have joined me in creating many designs. We are now creating boxes, books, guest books and are starting to create leather goods; all of them are made thinking that they should be beautiful and functional with a sense of balance and warmth. Quality, usability and a pleasing appearance are our highest priorities.
