About

***3/8/20112 I've had a few people tell me that they would like to see my press in action.. this is a video I did last September to go with a presentation I did. I'm going to try and put together a better one this weekend, but this should give you an idea in the meantime..

The Company: Jane Hancock papers launched late in 2006.  I took several letterpress and screen printing classes after earning my Bachelors degree at the Art Institute of Atlanta and I wanted to be able to put these talents to good use. I've had an obsession with stationery and paper products since I received my first Hello Kitty planner in the 3rd grade, so this was an easy transition. My new collection is whimsical and, as always, is a reflection of my fun, upbeat personality filled with bright colors. Each card is printed one at a time using my 1906 Chandler & Price platen press and my trusty print gocco printer.

The Mission: With the Kickstarter funding I will finally be able to do the full scale launch that I have always dreamed of.

The plan is to add six new critters while keeping the three most popular ones from the 2009 collection. These will be paired along will some really cool new patterns to make them pop. These new designs will be applied to our existing line of products, such as Thank You and Birthday cards as well as Notebooks, Coasters, Bookmarks and Key chains. We will also be adding new items for the home and children that will feature our original designs as well, including Place-mats, Tote Bags, Wall Prints, Hand Towels/Napkins, Pillow cases, Plush Toys, Kids T-shirts, Bibs and Onesies.

Besides the critters, there will be some fun occasion and text-based cards. The full collection will have around 40 different designs.

The Goal: Once the new line is complete, I'll be taking the collection to New York for the National Stationery Show. This will allow me to debut and sell the new line to hundreds of buyers from all over the country during a huge four day trade show.

••With your help we will be able to purchase over: A new motor for the press, 2 dozen letterpress plates, Paper, Envelopes, Screens, Ink, Fabric and miscellaneous supplies as well as pay for our NSS Booth and Set up an eye catching display.

All rewards will be shipped out before anyone is able purchase them, so  you will be the first to own pieces of the new collection. Rewards should be in your hands at least one week before the Christmas holiday. The launch party will happen in March or April of 2013 in , GA. Exclusive invites will be sent to media and supporters, there will be music, mingling and mini bites to enjoy. Attendees will be able to view the entire collection and make purchases during this event. In May we will pack everything up and head to NYC for the 2013 National Stationery Show. This is really when we will see the true pay-off of all our hard work

xoxo - Rajshel Juhan, Designer
