I love the fresh start of a new year! It’s the perfect time to set goals, examine what worked and what didn’t and celebrate achievements.

2016 was a great year for Inclosed! We set goals like nobody’s business and achieved every one of them! To name a few, we created a custom wedding collection, designed an entire wholesale line, revamped our website, and exhibited at our first ever tradeshow, The National Stationery Show.

As we kick off 2017, I want to share one very special accomplishment with you…

A few months ago, I received an email from Sarah Schwartz, editor-in-chief- at Stationery Trends Magazine. She asked me a question I had only heard in my dreams. She wanted to know if she could include Inclosed as one of her Top 10 Designers to watch in 2017!

I can’t even describe to you the joy that I felt. I was speechless. I did my happy dance for a few minutes, and I gratefully accepted her request.

Being a Top 10 Designer has always been a dream for Inclosed. I remember reading the highly coveted “Trends Issue” in years past and imagining what it would feel like to receive the honor of Top 10 Designer.

I also knew it took A LOT of work, sacrifice and endurance to be a contender. So we worked hard, worked late hours and sacrificed family time to achieve our goals. And it definitely paid off.

I cannot accept this honor without thanking my husband and family for their unconditional love, support and help in making this dream of mine come true. I couldn’t have gotten here without them. I’d also like to thank Katie Hunt of Tradeshow Bootcamp for encouraging all of us paper lovers to keep going and to never give up!

So what’s next? Well, the work doesn’t stop here. Oh no. This is only the beginning.

For 2017, we’re working to add new new stationery  products to our wholesale line, create new and fabulous wedding invitations and continue to grow our business and relationships with retailers.

From the bottom of my (very happy) heart, THANK YOU to all of our customers and retailers for making 2016 such a memorable year. You’ve given us the momentum to bring you new and exciting products in 2017 and we can’t wait to see what this year has in store.

 

Cheers to a new year!

Love,

Lesley

There are not enough words to explain my love and obsession with Lovestru.ck Weddings + Events! Candace and Lindsay are changing the conversation about weddings here in the Midwest and transforming them into gorgeous, magazine-ready events. Their work can be seen on popular blogs like Martha Stewart, Grey Likes Weddings, Snippet and Ink, Style Me Pretty, and many more! We’re just so excited to be on this adventure with them as they put Nebraska on the map for high-end, luxury weddings.

Lovestru.ck is a boutique event design and planning company based in Nebraska and available throughout the Midwest. Their goal is to create weddings that speak uniquely to each couple they work with, treating clients to an event with hand-picked details and precise execution that will present an experience couples and their guests will cherish.

Candace started Lovestru.ck with sound organization skills and a keen eye for design. She believes “weddings and social events should express the endearing qualities of the people we are celebrating, so forming relationships with our clients is top priority.” Candace’s attention to detail and imaginative designs offers clients and families the opportunity to enjoy not only the celebration, but the entire planning and design process.

Lovestru.ck weddings are special experiences for their clients, their families, and their guests. It’s an opportunity to make long lasting memories. Two of their favorite comments from past clients include “Our wedding was so US” and “I was able to totally enjoy my day and didn’t stress that everything was taken care of.”

Lovestru.ck is also a sister operation! Candace started the company over five years ago and her sister Lindsay joined on about three years ago. They often hear “how can you work with your sibling” but they love it! They also respect each other’s contribution to Lovestru.ck, Candace with her design skills and Lindsay with logistical magic, and trust in their abilities to get the job done and done well!

We’re continuing our Meet Our Lovely Retailer series with Rock Paper Scissors, a darling paper boutique & design studio located in Franklin, Tennessee which is right outside Nashville. We met Lauren Rauter, owner and total boss lady of Rock Paper Scissors at the National Stationery Show this past Spring and completely fell in love with her paper spirit!

Lauren opened Rock Paper Scissors with the hopes of  bringing big city style to their small southern town of Franklin – a very charming suburb of Nashville. Rock Paper Scissors is the go-to spot for goodies that celebrate everyday life and all special occasions.

Today we’re featuring an amazing event coordinator based in New York City, Florie Huppert of Florie Huppert Design. Not only is Florie extremely talented and creative, but she’s also a working mama and total girl boss! We have lots in common with Florie and we are so thrilled to be part of her design family.

Florie Huppert is a boutique event company that focuses on the complete planning and design of social, corporate, and small non-profit events. Their guiding philosophy is that nothing is impossible! Each client is one-of-a-kind, and that each should be distinctive, beautiful, and fun! Florie believes “each component of your event, from the invitations to the centerpieces and from the party favors to the thank you notes should have your personal touch and complement each other beautifully.” We couldn’t agree more Florie!

 

FlorieHuppert2

 

Florie Huppert Design is so special because everything they do is completely custom for each client and work to make sure that every event is the vision and personality of the client. Their parties and events do not look or feel the same and their style is to make “everything we do special and client focused.”

PostscriptHeader

This week’s Lovely Retailer feature,  we’re bringing it back to Nebraska with Postscript in Ashland, NE which is located about 20 minutes south of Omaha.

Nestled along a brick street in the small town of Ashland, Nebraska, Postscript is a boutique for paper, books, and lettering arts that brings a modern sensibility to antiquated processes. Focusing on high-quality craftsmanship and the handmade, Postscript carries a variety of beautiful objects, from letterpress printed cards, art prints, and decorative papers to calligraphy and bookbinding tools to hand-bound books. Postscript also offers delightfully curated gifts that elevate the beauty of the everyday, such as home office goods, art prints, wallpaper, tea towels, and gorgeously illustrated children’s books. Bespoke handmade books and calligraphic works on paper are available as well, crafted by proprietor Laura Capp.

Postscript3

 

Because instruction in book arts can be difficult to find, Postscript also doubles as a studio space, offering workshops in bookbinding, calligraphy, and related disciplines by highly qualified instructors. With an espresso and tea bar slated to open this year, Postscript will soon offer event space as well, which you can rent for your own workshops or craft sessions.

 

Postscript2

 

Although letterpress printing and calligraphy are making a comeback, and modern stationery is now widely available online and at the occasional brick and mortar shop, owner Laura Capp brings a discerning eye to the shop’s offerings as a trained calligrapher, bookbinder, and printer.

Postscript is so excited to be offering Inclosed Letterpress Co.’s new line of wedding invitations!  The best way to set up an initial consultation is by e-mailing Laura at laura@postscript.press or calling the shop at 402.944.2625.
