Miami has been in dire need of a proper stationery and card shop for years now (sorry, Hallmark), and now every postage-lover's dream has come true. Wynwood Letterpress is set to open inside the recently finished Wynwood Block complex, and March 30th is the lucky date.
Don't expect to find odes to New York or love notes from L.A. Instead, Wynwood Letterpress makes custom Miami stationery, like insanely cute cartoons of the Raleigh Hotel or St. Patty's Day cards that say "Yo, Bro," because how else do natives greet each other here?
Expect to also find goods from Rifle Paper Co., Shinola, and more authentic, artisan-produced brands. Plus, you can work with them to customize any type of paper good, from foil stamping to envelope lining, and calligraphy to custom illustration, whether its for a wedding or you just want to send someone something nice on a Tuesday. Also expect to find do-it-yourself workshops and classes. The first will be a calligraphy class headed by Leila Farah, who's donated her talents to Louis Vuitton previously.
We don't know about you, but we're holding out for our paper invite while they finish building out the store.
