If you can believe it, it’s that time of year again! It’s time for the 2011 National Stationery Show! Smock will be holding down the fort with inspired new additions to our Everyday and Studio collections and a stunning new letterpress wedding album. We can hardly wait to show it all off! If you’re attending the show, be sure to swing by and see us in booth 2241. See you soon!
In anticipation of all things spring and sunshine, we’re introducing fresh and new letterpress stationery and paper goods! Think bold colors, exciting patterns, pretty stationery, and happy new cards for life’s sweet occasions large and small. Check out new styles of our ever popular gift wrap, vibrant new lettersheet stationery sets, new masculine and sophisticated additions to our Studio line, spring-inspired letterpress cards, and all new offset greeting cards at a new low $3 price!
Creative Director Amy Graham Stigler channeled the loveliest inspiration for the latest collection. Children’s artwork – imperfect but beautiful line drawings and patterns. Repeating organic shapes inspired by nature. Imperfect lettering. Saturated colors. And a bit of silliness. We think it’s just divine.
We’re excited to extend a special offer exclusive to our newsletter and blog readers! Today through Sunday, March 27th, enter the code SPRING2011 at checkout to receive free shipping on all online orders from our Everyday collection! Check out the latest designs and start your spring shopping in style!

This fall Smock, our parent company Boxcar Press and our sister company Bella Figura got a lot larger and took up residence in some sweet new digs. With our expansion (17 letterpresses, 55 employees, 24,000 square feet), we are now one of the largest letterpress shops in the country. For the past few months we have been packing up, building new walls, moving presses, expanding our print shop and moving our operations from one end of an old warehouse in downtown Syracuse, New York to the other. Now we’ve cleaned up our dust and we’re inviting you to come check us out!
Come for shop tours, printing demonstrations, free giveaways, a little holiday shopping featuring our Everyday collection (stocking stuffers! bags! gift boxes! eco gift wrap! gift tags! cards! more!), refreshments, live entertainment and more. Letterpress lovers of all ages are welcome – we’ll have lots of fun activities for kids, too! We look forward to seeing you on Saturday between 10 and 4 – see you soon!

Like so many of you, we were stunned by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf Coast that dominated the news this spring and summer. While the spill has now been contained, the environmental impacts of the spill and the threats associated with offshore drilling persist. Oceana, an inspiring advocacy organization, has taken an active role in the movement against offshore drilling, and we want to help – this Saturday and Sunday (9/18 + 9/19), go to smockpaper.com, purchase any cards, lettersheets, or gift tags from the Isle suite and we’ll donate 100% of the Isle purchase to Oceana. Printed on bamboo paper, our Isle suite is inspired by art nouveau and (an oil free) underwater beauty, and includes our bestselling “thank you very much” whale card.
You can learn more about how to get involved and sign the petition protesting offshore drilling on Oceana’s website. And don’t forget to shop our Isle collection on Saturday and Sunday when we will be donating 100% of sales to help further Oceana’s cause.
