SMOCKI like the fine folks at Smock, an old school print shop in Syracuse, NY. Smock produces a series of printed products (cards, notebooks, etc,) on their antique letter presses and I love them.

About Smock: “Smock is a print shop based in Syracuse, New York, a post-industrial town whose sprawling warehouses and pretty grit have charmed us silly. Our shop — its 30 antique presses, 50 tons of equipment, and 80 employees — resides west of downtown in the Delavan Center, a rambling building with labyrinthine hallways and wildly crooked floors. This place used to be a factory for John Deere, and before that the Syracuse Chilled Plow Company. Today, the Delavan houses many of the city’s painters, photographers, sculptors, and ceramists. This is our home.”

The talented folks at Smock make fine cards like the You Are My Anchor letterpress and foil card: “sustainably letterpressed and foil stamped on bamboo paper. kraft envelope: 100% post-consumer recycled, FSC certified paper. Made with love in upstate New York.”
