I thought I'd take the opportunity to introduce myself/ourselves!
Hi, I'm Emma. l've been running my letterpress stationery brand, Hunter Paper Co. for the last 5 + years. In that time I've taken the brand to trade shows in London and New York which has really inspired the Hunt & Gather journey.
Firstly, it's allowed Hunter Paper Co products to be stocked in some of the most beautiful stationery & gift shops in the UK & beyond-shops I absolutely love and just wish existed here!
Secondly, I've exhibited alongside some really unique and interesting design-led brands, and this got me & my husband Ross thinking. Ross comes with me to most of the trade Shows I do, and any down time we get at the shows we usually spend talking about the interesting brands we've seen. This quickly evolved into what we'd stock in a 'dream shop' and before we knew it we were planning on making that a reality, and now here we are! Its been so fun to work on bringing this project to life and as we work towards opening a physical shop.
I can't wait to bring my 2 work worlds together! I'd love a space that encompasses both a beautiful design-led shop, and also a working letterpress studio for Hunter Paper Co. where we can run workshops on letterpress and also invite our wedding stationery couples in to pick colours & really be a part of the design & print process!
