• Welcome New Stockist: Albertine Press

    We are excited to introduce a new purveyor of our groovy things, Albertine Press in the town of Cambridge, Massachusetts. This brick and mortar shop in Inman Square is a place we would certainly love to shop, the space has a warm honey colored hardwood floor, the merchandise is beautifully organized and free of clutter, and clean lines are created by white square shelving. We love the sky blue metal pendant lamps that hang down the center of the shop. The selection is well curated and it is clear that the owner and team is enamored with paper.

    Albertine Press - Letterpress and Stationery Shop in Cambridge, MA

    This boutique was not only born out of a love for paper - it was started from a passion for letterpress printing as well, a passion that we also share. Albertine Press also letterpress prints a line of greeting cards, in-house.  Shelley, the owner, expanded a bit more on the history of her business:

    "From classic and elegant to witty and irreverent - Albertine Press is a letterpress print and design studio and paper boutique run by Shelley Barandes, a sometime-architect who just loved paper more. What began as a custom design and print shop has grown to include a full collection of greeting cards, note sets, coasters, and journals available at stationery stores and gift boutiques across the country. We also continue to work closely with individuals on custom wedding invitations and more. After twelve years, Albertine Press moved into a brick and mortar storefront where we get to share our love of cards, prints, desk accessories, and curiosities for the paper obsessed. When not designing wedding invitations or peddling artisanal wares, the studio hosts a variety of workshops and events (calligraphy nights, bookbinding, paper crafting) to encourage our community to be creative, share space, and start some great conversations."
    When asked about their favorite Page Stationery product, the team replied with a tie between two products:
    "We had a tie for favorite product between the Merci Beaucoup Chicken card and the Night/Sword art print (from LOVE HER WILD - An Atticus Collection). We love how adorable the chicken is with the coordinating envelope liner. The art print has such a great message and we loved adding it to our feminist section (where it sold out immediately!)"
    Merci Beacoup Chicken Card
    To Shelley and the Albertine Press team - we extend a warm welcome to you as a fellow letterpress-loving partner. Thank you for joining us.
