Gift wrapping workshop with May Arts Ribbon – Recap

We recently held a gift wrapping workshop here at our Syracuse print shop in collaboration with our friends at May Arts Ribbon. Each attendee learned how to get the perfect gift wrapping measurements, how to make an invisible seam, and how to put together some really cute gift toppers. In addition the gift toppers, guests were able to dress up their gifts with some festive, holiday-themed May Arts ribbons — we came up with so many fun wrap pairings! Take a peek at the event and some of the final wrapped presents below. You’ll even catch a sneak peek at some of our brand new gift wraps that will soon be available!

2016 Holiday Shop Recap

Last weekend we kicked off the holiday season with a 2-day holiday shopping event complete with crafting and calligraphy workshops at our studio here in Syracuse, New York. In-house designer Jessica Downs (creative lead for our sister company Bella Figura) hand lettered a huge chalkboard sign complete with Bayberry inspired greenery to welcome shoppers to the event.

We had so much fun hosting NYC-based calligrapher Virginia Lucas Hart, who taught an intro to modern calligraphy course on each day of the event. Each guest received a personalized calligraphy starter kit during the course, which included two hours of instruction. We loved seeing how many people were inspired to learn this beautiful art form!

During the event, shoppers stopped in to stock up on holiday cards, gift wrap, gift boxes and more – and many took home limited-edition calendars! The calendars feature Virginia Hart’s hand calligraphy, and pair letterpress printing with digital printing in the loveliest shades of blue. If you missed out on the event but want to snag a calendar, be sure to follow us on Instagram – we’ve got a few left, and we’ll be  hosting a giveaway soon!

Our in-house crafting expert Jennifer DeRoberts taught wreath-making workshops throughout the weekend as well, showing attendees how to craft festive paper wreaths with upcycled, die-cut leaves made from our gift wrap and excess envelope liners from custom orders (we loved seeing foil liners sprinkled in throughout the wreath designs!).

Bayberry Gift Wrap featured in Gifts & Decorative Accessories Magazine

We were excited to spot our double-sided Bayberry gift wrap in the September 2016 issue of Gifts and Decorative Accessories Magazine. The feature was all about gift wrapping, and making the exterior of your gift look just as special as what’s inside. Our double-sided gift wraps make it easy to dress up a gift – use the alternating patterns on a gift with multiple boxes, or use a strip of the opposite side of the wrap like ribbon as a finishing touch. Many thanks to Gifts & Decorative Accessories for including Smock in this feature!

Support The Sweet Praxis with a Smock Gratitude Box!

Our friends at The Sweet Praxis are opening a storefront in downtown Syracuse later this summer, and we couldn’t be more excited to support this local business on their new venture! We teamed up with The Sweet Praxis to offer the Smock Gratitude Box, a new pledge option for their current Kickstarter project. Pledge $75 or more, and you’ll receive a Smock box filled with Smock + Sweet Praxis goodies, including a bag of almond toffee, vanilla marshmallows, brownies, a spiral-bound workbook, and assorted cards in one of our medium keepsake boxes. Visit The Sweet Praxis Kickstarter page to make your pledge by July 14th to receive one of these fun boxes. The best part? The box ships for free, so even if you’re not local you can enjoy all the goods! We did a fun photoshoot in honor of the collaboration and paired up some of our new gold foil stamped birthday cards with cupcakes from The Sweet Praxis for some celebratory inspiration – take a look!

Smock Everyday featured in Woman’s Day, HGTV Magazine + Celebrate

We always love spotting our products on the pages of our favorite magazines! Smock’s been getting some love from HGTV Magazine as well as Woman’s Day and Celebrate. In the April 2016 issue of Woman’s Day, our  medium Chartreuse boxes were featured in an article all about getting your home organized as the perfect vessel for mail (and if company comes before you’re ready, just pop on the lid to hide the mess!).

HGTV Magazine has also featured Smock in some recent issues! They used several of our patterned gift wraps in their December 2015 holiday issue about stylish new color combos (recreate the looks with our Dots, Turk, and Shimmer gift wraps). And the September 2015 issue of HGTV featured our wraps right on the cover! They created easy little makeovers by covering magazine holders and boxes with some of our wrap to create cute new office organization tools (for this story, they used our Indigo and Keiko wraps).
