Motormouthpress, cards that make you hungry

Motormouthpress originated as my press name while earning my MFA in Book Arts/Printmaking at The University of the Arts in Philadelphia. My first love is making books. I enjoy the entire process from making the paper to printing the pages with text and/or imagery to binding the book. I have always wanted to share my good design sensibilities with the others, but books can be expensive to manufacture. So I thought I could translate my designs easily to greeting cards, and poof Motormouthpress was transformed into Motormouthpress, LLC a few years shortly after graduation. Motormouthpress, LLC specializes in food-themed greeting cards and stationery that doubles as mementos.

Do you still have a day job? Yes, I am an Adjunct Graphic Design Professor at the California Art Institute in Sunnyvale, CA.

What’s the best advice you have been given about your business or craft practices? When I started my business, signing the paperwork was easy, but to get it off the ground and make it a realization seemed overwhelming at first. Someone told me that the best way to get started is to do one thing for your business everyday, no matter how small, and eventually it will become a habit, and you will know what you will have to do.

We offer personalized greeting cards through our partner The vibe is slightly different, not everything is food-themed. Some of our designs you can only find on Cardstore, while others are line extensions of some of our most popular designs. We also will be offering an exclusive summer sale on our newly redesigned website, just in time for Maker Faire!
