Award-winning Ladyfingers Letterpress is an LGBTQ+ owned-and-operated stationery & gift brand based in Colorado Springs founded by wife-and-wife team, Arley-Rose Torsone and Morgan Calderini. We launched our business in 2011 when to our surprise, our work went viral online! We quit our day jobs to open a small studio and we became very busy designing and printing our products by hand on presses that are older than the invention of the Model T Ford. We debuted our line at the National Stationery Show, pulled ourselves up by our bootstraps, and are proud to say that today our line of greeting cards and paper goods can be found in over 800 fine boutiques around the world. In 2016 we opened our flagship store in Colorado Springs where we also host workshops and classes and offer a wide variety of boutique stationery and locally-made, finely curated gifts. From this post we operate our letterpress and design headquarters and customers can see the presses running and witness our products being made. We believe that you don't have to be a large company to make a big impact. We take pride in making things by hand, locally, and sustainably. In recent years, we have used our platform to promote womxn's, LGBTQ+, POC and immigrant rights, using our "power of the press" to produce work that helps to mobilize social movements. We use our privilege as makers and business owners to create products that speak to the people and once in awhile make them laugh with a little dad joke.
