When did you decide you wanted to open your own company?

It was sort of by accident. I started letterpress printing as a hobby when I needed a creative outlet during law school. When my daughter was born a few years later, I quit my 9-5:00 job to be at home with her. I slowly got back into letterpress printing, teaching at a local art center on the weekends and printing in the evenings after my daughter was asleep. Then, I started selling my cards at Eastern Market on the weekends. From there I started selling my greeting cards to shops all over the country and exhibited at our first trade show. In recent months, we have started taking on more custom work. We also want to branch out into other promotional materials. For example, one of our clients has recently asked us if we would be interested in designing and printing a brochure. This is definitely something we will be considering in the future.

How did you come up with the name of your business?

We want people to be excited about paper, about writing letters instead of emails, about sending physical and not electronic invitations. I love the idea of sitting down at my desk on a rainy afternoon with my favorite pen, a cup of tea, and my grey cat. That would be a perfect afternoon and we want everyone to feel that way about writing letters and sending mail.

What is your favorite part about what you do?

I love printing something new for the first time. It is the biggest rush to see a product come to life after dreaming it, designing it, and then making it.

FAQs

– What are my transport/parking options getting to the event? The closest metro is the U Street station (green line). Parking can be tough in that area, especially because they’ve changed some of the streets to 24-hour residential parking only (mostly north of U Street), so we’d recommend trying to park south of U Street and avoiding 14th Street.

– What can/can’t I bring to the event? Yourself! Business cards, if you’d like to do some networking.

***THIS IS NOT AN EXPO! There will be NO BOOTHS or space to set up products***

– Is my registration/ticket transferrable? You may not transfer your ticket without the permission of District Bliss. Additionally, tickets are not transferrable between vendor categories.

Please be sure to RSVP in the correct category. We strive to be fair to all vendors. Thanks!
