Loren Profit Smith  serving creatives with letterpress print and our own handmade paper from our 7-acre farm where we seek beauty, generosity, gratitude & good food

There's some serious texture (and a little lean) to our studio walls, which are original to the outbuilding we're almost done converting here on the farm. It's been a big project and so much of it is coming together today and tomorrow...we're so excited to show you!

Thank you again to all of you who entered and shared your excitement about our sample packs; it means so much to us!! The randomly selected winner of the giveaway is the lovely @silbiaro! We hope you love it! ❤️
Also, pre-orders for our sample packs will close at midnight central time tonight, so be sure to order if you haven't already! (PayPal $20, $25 for international to loren@farmettepress.com and say pre-order in the notes!) We're so excited for you all to get your sample packs by Aug 18.
Also, it is a bit of a whirlwind around here as we prepare to welcome @emma_natter and @emilieanneszabo and make all sorts of pretty on Friday...keep an eye out for sneak peeks! :)

Paper drying in the country sun ✨ Thank you so much to everyone who has entered our sample pack giveaway and pre-order...we've been overwhelmed by your support and are so grateful!! The giveaway ends at midnight central tonight so make sure to enter before then. And if you or someone you know would like to pre-order a sample pack, we have a few slots left but will be out soon, so it may be best to order now! See my previous post about how to enter and preorder.
Thank you so much again to everyone for your support (and for your patience, we are responding as fast as we can!! :))! Your kindness and excitement are such an encouragement!

G I V E A W A Y | P R E - O R D E R : •Happy Friday and hello to our new friends who are following along, we're so glad you're here! We've received so much good feedback from those of you who have seen the very small batch of sample packs that we've started to send out to some calligrapher friends as we prepare for our September 1 launch! We strive to make these samples thoughtful and beautiful, and they include cards in all 18 of our initial color offerings, with extra pieces of each that you can use for your mood boards, color pairings, and to show to clients. In addition, there are letterpress printed ink samples and example sheets of both our calligraphy weight paper (smoother and lighter), which we will be selling in our online shop, and our letterpress weight (more textured and and deliciously thick for a DEEP impression), which will be available exclusively to our wholesale customers paired with in-house letterpress services.
•So, we've decided to do two things:
1 | G I V E A W A Y : Enter to win your very own sample pack, sent out next week! Tag two friends who you think might like to enter themselves, before midnight CST on Sunday, and we will randomly select a winner to be announced on Tuesday.
2 | P R E - O R D E R : If you would like to pre-order your own sample pack, we will have a limited number available on Aug 18, two weeks before we launch. Because of all of the time and attention that goes into these, they will normally be $30, but if you preorder now, you can reserve one for $20, which would be credited towards your first wholesale order if you choose to collaborate with us on a project. Those who pre-order will also have access to some "soft open" shopping before our official launch date! Please PayPal $20 to loren@farmettepress.com to reserve your sample pack today. Quantities are limited so be sure to order soon! (And yes, we will ship internationally for $5extra!)
{If you pre-order and then win the giveaway, we will refund your purchase and send your samples free of charge!}
•You can sign up for shop updates and more at farmettepress.com, and follow along on Instagram for a new giveaway every Friday leading up to Sept 1. Thank you!!!

I love my new @notperfectlinen apron!

W I N N E R | And the winner of our French blue giveaway is @letterandstone! Congratulations, I'm sure what you make with these is going to be so very beautiful!
There were so many amazing visions for this gorgeous blue that it kind of broke my heart not to see all of them come to life!! I wasn't planning on offering this French blue this season but after hearing all of your ideas, I'm wondering: do you think we should keep it? Comment and let me know your thoughts!
Stay tuned because leading up to our official September 1 launch we're going to be introducing more of our many colors, holding limited quantity flash sales with great values on handmade papers, and having giveaways every Friday! We're so excited to reveal all we've been working hard to create ❤️

I'm so grateful to be the caretaker of one of @slow.season's beautiful paintings. This one is filled with so much emotion, so much conflict and resolution. I love to stare at it.
As I was looking at it today I also realized that some of the blues are almost exactly the same as the French blue from our paper giveaway! Thank you so much to everyone who entered; all of your ideas for what to do with this paper sound so stunning!! I will announce the winner tomorrow. And I'm also wondering if I need to find a way to keep the French blue after all, because there seem to be lots of uses for it :)

G I V E A W A Y | As you may have noticed, I've been having so much fun creating SO MANY colors with botanical dyes as we prepare for the launch of our paper and press shop at the end of next month. I think all of the hues turn out so lovely, but I'm trying to curate our color collections and some colors we've made just haven't quite fit with the others, at least this time around. This blue turned out rich and beautiful, a perfect French blue, but just a little too purple to jive with our others. So, lucky for you, we're going to give away some of the samples we made! Perfect for a styled shoot, there are six 4x9 menus and 12 placecards, and we'll throw in three of your choice soft white, dusty blue or deep blue A7s as well to complete the set. To enter, make sure you're following us, tag two friends who love handmade paper in the comments, and tell me what would be your vision for these lovelies! Open until midnight central time on Sunday, winner will be announced Tuesday! ❤️

I hope that heaven is filled with old stone walls like this, draped with rambling roses.

Choosing between slight color variations which ones to keep and which ones to not has proven quite difficult! 🙈 Which ones are your favorite?

The movement in this dress and the joy on this bride's face are just magical. So grateful to have been able to be a part of this beautiful shoot, now on @bajanwed!

Playing around with some extra-thin, translucent paper-making. What do you think? (Dyer's fingernails courtesy of always forgetting to wear gloves.)
