Rala: Regional and Local Artisans

Introducing another new line of greeting cards, PaperRehab - Stationery For The Soul. Owner Tiffany McGraw is a Detroit based graphic designer/illustrator. She wanted to create a stationery line that reflected the diversity she felt was missing in the greeting card industry and also highlight the need to help remove the stigma surrounding mental health especially among women of color. @PaperRehab is inspired by all the amazing women in our lives. Their message seeks to celebrate, cultivate, restore and heal relationships by promoting a spirit of sisterhood that can be counted on no matter what!

Dang right @kennedyprints! We are bummed that Amos Kennedy had to cancel his First Friday art show in September due to Covid, but we hope to see him in 2021❤️ Today we want to shine a light on his amazing work. Amos creates posters using hand presses with handset metal and wood type, oil-based inks, and eco friendly chipboard. His process often involves overprinting multiple layers of text in vibrant colors of ink. The text is inspired by proverbs, sayings, and quotes. Amos is also currently renovating a building in Detroit, MI to house the PRINTING PLANT, the Printery of the Americas, a 501c3 letterpress educational institution. To learn more about this worthwhile endeavor follow @pile_of_bricks. We love you Amos, thank you for creating such inspiring and beautiful prints for the world🌎
