Farewell Paperie  Letterpress design & smart, snarky paper goods from Seattle, WA 💌☔️🌲🏔🌷 For more follow 👉 @jen_farewellpaperie 👉@lisa_farewellpaperie

Okay, this one stings a little. Coming into the homestretch of our studio closing and things have been too hectic to get emotional, but watching our sturdy printing press Bill leave the building has us verklempt. 😢We built our line and our business on this press, he gave us (and you!) tens of thousands of cards. He’s going to a great new home back in Cali, go figure, and we can’t wait to see what else this cranky old bastard brings to the world. Bye, Bill. We ❤️ you.

Okay, everyone. It’s time for some real talk.
.
After months of legit cryface deliberation, we’ve made the bittersweet decision to discontinue the Farewell Paperie product line.
.
We know, we know. WTF.
.
There are lots of reasons for us to do this, both personally and professionally, and we’ll spare you the snoozy deets. What it comes down to is, change happens. And it can be a good thing. Our business is always changing and so are we. What we need now is different than when we started these shenanigans in our 20s. The thing that hasn’t changed in a decade of doing this is that we’re not afraid of change—in fact, it’s always done us right.
.
So, what now, you ask? Well, we have some answers!
.
•Farewell Paperie will be closing our studio space this summer. Our products will be discounted through the end of May online and through our reps. Our equipment will also be up for grabs to some very lucky letterpress ducks.
.
•Don’t worry, the band’s not breaking up. Through our new project Smart Snark Studios, we’ll be shifting the focus to our licensing & product development projects away from the Farewell Paperie brand. Maybe from our couches. Maybe wearing pants.
.
•The best part about all of this is that our favorite Farewell designs have been picked up by the fresh new line King Friday, the brainchild of products whiz Lisa Krowinski, most known for her hilariously successful line @saplingpress. This summer a bunch of our greatest hits will launch in an expansive assortment of cards and goods under the new King Friday name. We’re stoked to see what Lisa K and her team come up with. It’s going to be uh-mazing.
.
In the meantime, we’ll be following along @kingfridaygoods for peeks as it debuts & you should too.
.
To say that we could have done any of this without the support of our awesome team, buyers, reps, customers, & our families would be just cray. Our cards were designed with every one of you in mind, often verbatim from a funny convo we’ve had. We’ll miss those exchanges dearly. .
But it’s okay! We’re okay! The phrase “Cheers, Bitches” will always be okay! Now, let’s all get working on our best “Farewell, Farewell” jokes while jamming to 90s R&B.

We know what you’re really doing for Valentines Day and we condone it. 🍦🙌❤️😉 .
