Thank you for wanting to learn a little more about us.
We are a Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania based husband and wife team. Jessica (the Bird) is a Pittsburgh native. Karl (the Beard) is originally from the outskirts of Cincinnati, and a bit of a computer nerd. We got married in 2012, in a Southside restaurant called the Library. Its cozy, book-lined walls lent to a wedding invitation suite themed around libraries and books. Thanks to the overwhelming feedback from friends, we started a stationery business together, at first focusing on library-themed wedding paper goods.
In 2013, we launched a line of chemistry-themed geeky greeting cards based on the Periodic Table of the Elements that feature sayings from classy and traditional to sassy and youthful. We have since expanded our academic themes to include BASIC computer programming, binary code, and math equations. Our cards have been featured on several international blogs including Huffington Post and can be found in independent stationery shops across the United States and Canada. Our wedding products have been featured on BuzzFeed, various wedding blogs, and in trade magazines such as Stationery Trends.
Thanks for visiting!
