Paper Raven Co. is an Atlanta-based stationery brand created by Illustrator Erin McManness. Founded in 2015, the hallmarks of the Paper Raven Co. line include heavy doses of florals, a love for hand-lettering, nods to the natural world and sincere messaging. When Erin is not illustrating, she can be found perfecting her cooking skills, hiking with her family in the Georgia wilderness or reading true crime novels.

In 2011, curiosity got the best of Kristen and she purchased a 1925 Chandler + Price Platen Letterpress from Lexington, KY and hauled it all the way back to Mississippi on a tiny trailer with just one other person as her letterpress-moving sidekick.

Not only is Thimblepress a letterpress studio, it is an art studio, sewing studio, design studio, woodworking studio, and basically anything creative that Kristen wants to try her hand at next.
