Our Story

Shorthand Press creates tools for productivity and creativity – notebooks and office supplies that strike a balance between being functional and aesthetically pleasing. Our products are designed with a high attention to detail – they are meant to be USED for ideas, brainstorms, sketches, lists and fun.

Greeting cards are also our passion and what jumpstarted our line in 2010. We love coming up with sweet and funny sentiments for all the occasions life throws your way. 

Rosanna and Ariel design, test, prototype and illustrate all the products in our line. Molly is our wholesale coordinator making sure all orders ship smoothly and efficiently and that stores are stocked with what they need. Our team of letterpress printers, notebook makers and card folders work in our shop creating products every day to meet our high production standards.

Founded by Rosanna and Joel Kvernmo in 2008, the print shop formerly known as Iron Curtain Press has grown from the humble beginnings of their backyard shed into a fully fledged print house and store; we couldn’t be more proud of what we do.
