studio internship

Thursday, February 6th, 2014

We are currently hiring a studio intern!

Starting immediately I will need someone to come in to the studio 2–3 days a week, for at least 5 hours a day. Hours and time are flexible.

We are looking for a fellow paper lover to help out with packaging and folding inventory, packing and shipping orders, trimming paper and other production work. Inventory and other admin tasks could be involved.

Candidate must be: hard-working, a self-starter, very reliable, clean, meticulous attention to detail, very organized and have the ability to work on repetitive tasks. Bonus point for having a creative background. Letterpress or silkscreen printing experience is not required, but beneficial.

This is a part-time paid position in Chevy Chase, MD (within walking distance from the Bethesda metro). If interested I would be willing to train you on the press. This is a great opportunity for someone willing to work hard and grow with the company.

Please email me with a resume and a short paragraph on why you’d be a great fit for Fancy Seeing You Here to: hi {at} fancyseeingyouhere {dot} com

Look forward to hearing from you!

NSS 2012 booth setup

Friday, May 25th, 2012

I’ve been preparing for the National Stationery Show since last fall and it finally happened earlier this week. All of the hard work and meltdowns were paid off by the most wonderfully awesome week, surrounded by stationery and paper lovers, yes it was heaven. I was lucky enough to share a booth with ten other members of the Ladies of Letterpress community. Having a small section in their booth, in comparison to having an entire booth to myself, made the preparation a lot easier. And when I say easier, I don’t mean easy, you still have to work your freakin butt off. But it was SO worth it; new friends, new shops and great press all of which are priceless. Here are a few shots from the booth setup.

Oh and did you see that some of my cards were featured on Design Sponge? I’m still jumping with joy over that.

And a lovely post from Oh So Beautiful Paper, which features pictures from all the Ladies of Letterpress booths.

Pearl’s first run

Monday, April 16th, 2012

Things have been a bit quiet here on fancy seeing you here lately. The reason for this is prepping for the National Stationery Show which has me in such a tizzy. It seems like everything is coming together nicely though, even if my to do list is endless! This past weekend I printed with my press Pearl for the first time. It took a bit of troubleshooting to figure everything out, but by the end she was printing beautifully. I’m so excited to finally have her up and running. A special thanks goes out to Baltimore Print Studios and John Falstrom for the technical support while I was setting her up.

In case you are attending NSS I’ll be in booth #2274 with the Ladies of Letterpress.

Friday, August 5th, 2011

New items in my shop! I’ve been selling these items at local craft shows but hadn’t had the chance to photograph them for the shop, until now. You’ve seen the Fancy birthday card in one of my previous posts.

scenes from artscape

Monday, July 18th, 2011

A few images from our booth at Artscape this past weekend. It was a very busy, hot and exhausting three days, but well worth it—I loved seeing how people responded to our products. I think our Letterpress booth was a big hit, the combination of all our different design styles and products was unique and we truly had something for everyone.
