Handmade Letterpressed Beauties : Brookfield Stationery

26 Jun

This is Art You Can Use. No tucking it away on a high shelf, no agonizing over whether it’s too fine to use:  does Aunt Joyce really deserve the nice stationery? The gorgeous patterns of Brookfield Letterpress Stationery are designed by Elisabeth Hyder, a former kindergarten teacher originally from Switzerland, and their vibrant colors and intriguing design mean this stationery is most definitely meant for Aunt Joyce, birthday parties, thank you notes, happy-to-see-you again notes and everyday invitations.

Elisabeth, who studied crafts as part of her teacher training, has always been an artist. Her husband and frequent collaborator, Darrell Hyder of The Sun Hill Press, has been a letterpress printer for over 40 years, working with both classic hand type and hot metal monotype.  As their four children grew and left home, Elisabeth settled more deeply into her craft and soon their home overflowed with her decorative paste paper and beautiful rubber stamp designs.  Together, she and Darrell have produced stationery, decorative papers, books and ephemera for years. Each year, Elisabeth designs new patterns for note cards as well as the cover designs for Sun Hill miniature books; together she and Darrell do all of the printing and editing of the OrangeArt Miniature Books.

Way back in the early 1990s, their good friends Carol and John, who are fine stationery manufacturers and wholesalers, asked if Darrell could create a letterpress sheet of Elisabeth’s stamps. Not only would they be beautiful papers for their customers, they thought, but they could be converted into a line of stationery for everyone to enjoy. And so it began. An enterprise rooted in friendship and beautiful products for all to enjoy.

Twenty years later their friendship and artistic collaboration continues strong, and we’re pleased to add their lovely work to our own pantheon of letterpress papers. Why do these products make people—including us—smile so much? Elisabeth’s patterns recall favorite fabrics, bookbinders’ tools, Japanese prints and the feel of depth is the result of rich, hand-mixed ink literally sunk into fine paper on heavy letterpresses by Darrell. The stationery products made by OrangeArt are useful as well as beautiful and are made entirely in New England .

Brookfield Stationery’s motto is “Art You Can Use.” Art that brightens every day, accompanies you to dinner parties and PTA functions, and brings some vibrant New England-Swiss beauty into your home.  While we love these for our own any-occasion correspondence, we’ve also found these notecards also make a great small gift perfect for hosts or hostesses, friendly neighbors, and the unexpected gift exchange. Even better, each stationery box has been wrapped with letterpress sheets to be refilled or re-purposed again: no wrapping required.
