and spent the last two hours working on mission statement and company information. i want to be as pulled-together as possible.
petrnotail press: whimsical bookmarks etc. for children and for grown-ups who behave otherwise
on the marks
the paper used in production is 100% recovered having been rescued from trash and recycling bins. each bookmark is unique, one-of-a-kind and handmade in baltimore, marlyand, usa. some find the resultant slight imperfections charming, and we think you should, too.
happy, thrilled, elated to take special orders! just e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and we can set something up. (hint: they make really great inexpensive co-worker gifts during those mandatory gifting holidays…) pricing and turn-around time is quoted on an individual basis per order. oh, also, because we work with found materials, for reordering purposes and custom work we cannot always guarantee we will have your specified colors available, but we do our absolute best to accommodate special requests.
in the spring of 1993, facing some family budget cuts after moving from boston to baltimore, i started making bookmarks to pay my own way to summer camp. i sold them to extended family, friends, neighbors and church goers. soon, customers were requesting personalized bookmarks for themselves or to give to that special bibliophile in their life. well, I had a busy spring and early summer, selling more than enough to pay my way and was even able to give extra money to the camp’s scholarship fund to help some other kids in the same situation. i called the fledgling production chicken man bookmarks, etc. after a character in one of my favorite books. over the years, i’ve worked in conjunction with other local artists and we’ve evolved into petrnotail press with offerings including stationery, wall art, greeting cards and pamphlets but those same funky little bookmarks are still at the core of what we do. happy reading!
