Guest Blog: Stationery Pixx from Johanna of 12fifteen

Johanna Anderes of 12fifteen is stepping in for me today and sharing a stationer’s stationery pixx!

By guest contributor Johanna Anderes of 12fifteen.

Hello again Indie Fixx readers. It was lots of fun being guest blogger last year and I was very excited when Jen asked me to share some more of my favorite stationery designers with you. Thanks Jen, for inviting me back….for a self declared paper addict this is a real treat!

In need of a fun to the point message? Look no further.


Old Tom Foolery is the brainchild of Joel Gryniewski and Lauren Weinblatt, two ad-industry vets who also happen to be engaged.

Back when Joel was wooing Lauren, he had a tough time finding cards that were: a) funny, b) letterpressed (they’re both suckers for a deep impression), and c) not so dainty as to make her question his masculinity. So they set out to make their own witty letterpress cards that would appeal to both sexes.


Hammocks and High Tea  is inspired by Karen’s South American, tropical upbringing. Not only does Karen Young have her own stationery line, she also creates the most beautiful kitchen towels and other homegoods. Also check out her etsy store for beautiful notepads. So pretty and colorful! (and…Karen is not only talented, but also could not be nicer in person)


Fugu Fugu Press is a Pasadena based husband and wife letterpress shop (etsy shop). Not only do I love their cards (the illustrations are too cute) but their studio is also making me drool. And just as a little side note, did you know that
fugu is the japanese word for blowfish or puffer fish?

About the contributor: Johanna Anderes is inspired by travels, nature and life in general and creates stationery, limited edition prints, coasters and home goods using various printing techniques including letterpress, screenprinting and inkjet. You can visit her 12fifteen shop and her Etsy Shop.

    Those first set of cards are absolutely hysterical! Especially the baby one – definitely for those with a great sense of humor!
