Amy and Mary Beth are a pair of accomplished graphic designers who share a love for fine printing and are addicted to everything paper. Each earned their BFA in graphic design, and then independently decided to relocate to the San Francisco Bay Area, Amy from the lone star state of Texas and Mary Beth from New York. Eventually, their paths crossed while working in the same design department at a major corporation. As the years passed in corporate America and their creative genius became trapped, they realized a drastic change was needed, and fast! Each afternoon, over their still favorite cups of earl grey tea, they imagined a better life in design.

As luck would have it, the drastic change came in the form of downsizing, and they were soon free to build their dreams into a reality! With freedom came long drives up to Chandon and impromptu vacations to Mexico. On the plane back from Sayulita, Peculiar Pair Press was born.

As educated graphic designers, we have combined our sensibilities to create a look of our own. Our love of paper and respect for the letterpress process contributes to a final product that we hope stands above the rest. Read less

Amy made our invitations, menus, program jackets, and other stationery items. We did a lot of back-and-forth over the design and she was responsive and accomodating. Her designs were creative and fresh and we were very happy with the end result.

We had an extremely unique wedding situation....technically, it was a quasinuptial celebration! As a result, we wanted to avoid all of the common bridal imagery and usual wedding language. The Peculiar Pair listened very carefully to our interests and concerns, and produced an invitation that reflected our unique situation. They crafted a design that tied into the look of our venue (LA's historic Union Station), and didn't blink when we requested footnotes for our invitation. Highly recommended!

Working with Peculiar Pair Press was truly the highlight of my event. I cannot wait to find another reason to work together again. I am obsessed with the world of invitations and can tell you that throughout my many experiences with designers and stationers, nothing compares to the enchanted world that is Peculiar Pair Press.
