Meet the Sponsors: Inkwell Modern Handmade Boutique & Letterpress Studio

April 2, 2014 | Halifax Crafters Society

Continued support from local, community businesses is like a huge, BEAR hug to all who love the creative, craft and design community!  Inkwell Modern Handmade Boutique & Letterpress Studio continues to inspire and encourage the handspun movement of the Halifax Crafters.  We’ve previously profiled Andrea and her shop, however read on to discover what’s new in the Inkwell world.  Take it away, Andrea!

Inkwell Modern Handmade Boutique & Letterpress Studio is once again delighted to be a sponsor of Halifax Crafters Society Spring Market!  We love supporting the local craft community as both a sponsor and customer.

Inkwell is located at 1658 Market Street (between Sackville and Prince street), in downtown Halifax.  We are a purveyor of modern handmade paper goods and other goodies for your home.  We’re pleased to showcase products of an illustrative nature; all handmade with love, by artists from around the corner and across the world.  We take great pride in highlighting local artists in our store.

Inkwell designs and prints an in-house product line called Inkwell Press. A few that we have produced to date, which have been well received, are the Official East Coaster; Salt Water Cure Print; and Rebuild Halifax Print.  We have some new products in development that we are excited about launching later this Spring!  Recently, local photographer Michelle Doucette spent some time at Inkwell while we were printing. Visit her blog to see some great photos of the shop and the letterpress printing process.

This May, Inkwell will celebrate its third anniversary! During the 3 years we’ve been fortunate to collaborate with local and international artists who share our passion for quality modern handmade products. We love sharing our awesome finds with our wonderful customers.

To our fellow makers and supporters of handmade, have a successful Crafters show and inspirational Spring.  See you soon!

Thank you for all you do, Andrea, in supporting the Halifax Crafters and local creative energy.  We couldn’t do it without your help!
