It is always so interesting to learn about local businesses, and so we were intrigued to hear about Smudge Ink, a stationery and letterpress studio in Charlestown. Founded by two college friends in 2002, Kate Saliba and Deb Bastien, the brand now makes custom wedding invitations, personal announcements, and corporate stationery. They also sell greeting cards, notebooks, calendars and more in local shops and on their website. How cute is this whale stationery?
The evening of November 5, the Smudge Ink team is hosting a Holiday Sip + Shop event at their offices. You can join them for food, drinks, live bluegrass music, and a demonstration of the press! Lots of interesting companies are joining in, including Elizabeth Benotti Ceramics, Salt Cellar Shop, Wild Folk Studio, and more! Part of the evening’s proceeds will be donated to the Boys and Girls Club of Charlestown. See all the information below – sounds like a fun way to meet some local makers and get some lucky friends checked off the holiday shopping list!
