The art of letter writing is alive and well in my world. Pretty printing for mom and baby is a great resource to get you inspired to write again.
A thank you, a birthday wish, a sweet sentiment attains a deeper meaning when one puts pen to paper and crafts a note. I'm always collecting stationery and note cards. So you can imagine how thrilled (and a little jealous) I was when my friend Connie Luca Feiner launched her printing business. Connie called her new project Pretty Printing. Inspired by things that make everyone happy--from boat totes to bows, espadrilles to lollie-pops--Connie is infatuated with summer.
I used Pretty Printing for my baby announcements and have loved watching her business grow. Initially the brand grew out of Connie's frustration with the limited bridal offerings. When babies came along, Connie expanded the business into a full-blown stationery company.
Connie and I worked together at Polo Ralph Lauren. I can vouch for her exquisite taste. Need a few examples? All right, how about her Birthday Collection. If your throwing a bash for your son or daughter you can't miss with this collection. Whether you are playful (cupcakes anyone?)or classic (madras blue for boys)there's invite for you.
I caught up with Connie at her home in Plandome, NY to find out what makes this momtrepreneur tick. Here's what she said:
Where do you get inspiration for new designs?
I am inspired by things that make me (and I think everyone) happy. Summer, the water, hobbies, travel. My children are a tremendous inspiration for the children's invites and stationery. When I first started I had no idea I needed note cards with a pirate hat
or fairy princesses!

As a mom, what is your advice for new parents when it comes to ordering announcements and baby stationery?
Keep it simple but let it reflect your personal style (how sweet is this train announcement!)
What makes a great thank-you note?
Something that speaks volumes about your personality. I change mine every season. Right now I'm using the wellie boot because I find myself wearing them constantly!
What are some of your favorite styles from your collection?
Wow, this is not an easy question, there are sooo many ! I love the wellie tote, it's always a great gift. The monogrammed dress for little girls,the train for little boys. The espadrille makes me smile. Oh, and I can't forget the madras plaid, I am obsessed with it lately!
