It’s not exactly surprising that Morgan Calderini and Arley-Rose Torsone’s stationery business, Ladyfingers Letterpress, puts out spectacular note cards and custom invitations. After all, what else would happen when graduates from two of the best art schools in the country (Rhode Island School of Design and Parsons the New School for Design) come together?
In addition to creating the concepts for their witty, eye-pleasing, and occasionally over-the-top greetings, the craftsmanship that goes into bringing the Pawtucket, R.I.-based artists’ ideas to life is perhaps even more impressive. Each design is an actual work of art — hand lettered then placed on the press where it is printed on 100 percent, heavy cotton paper made by the renowned Crane & Co.
And while you can purchase beautiful greeting cards for everyday occasions, Lady Finger Letterpress really shines when it comes to their custom work for wedding invitations, when they work closely with couples to create unique designs from scratch and by hand for each event. That’s the kind of attention to detail and customer service that makes them stand apart not only from other stationers, but also so many businesses that focus on instant gratification rather than enduring quality.
