Look at this! Paper Boat Studios

Paper Boat Studios is a collaboration between friends with a love of letterpress. They have studios in St Louis and Seattle and produce paper based delights such as books, calendars and games. I received their Chevron Coasters as a gift and they have been on my desk, fulfilling the role of executive toy.

Every now and then I take them out and just admire them.

No way is my spilling glass of g+t going on these pretties. I’m not sure if my photo can capture the tactile quality, which makes them perfect for taking out of their box and feeling. Their website has a list of stockists in the US.
