Two friends, two antique printing presses, a bunch of ink and a whole lot of paper. This simple combination led Mara Murphy and Anna Branning, friends and co-workers for many years, to establish Dutch Door Press, a design & letterpress studio. They set up shop in 2006 in a beautiful Victorian house in San Francisco and named their press after the entryway to their studio—none other than a Dutch Door.

With an affinity for rich color, vintage patterns, natural forms and symmetry, they create unique and boldly colored designs for greeting cards, posters, and invitations. All of their designs are printed by hand on their antique Chandler & Price platen press or an equally lovely Vandercook simple precision 15 proofing press.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Birds and Blooms Pillows - Individual States:

    Ordered three and was so happy with them I ordered one more. Lovely designs, nice size and versatile. Look at colors in the pillow example image instead of the .pdf for more accurate color intensity. I prefer the more subdued colors on the pillows - they can go in any room without clashing.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Birds and Blooms Pillows - Individual States:

      The pillow colors are a little muted compared to the prints shown in the .pdf, so look specifically at the pillow example for color. But I like that the colors are not too bright because the pillows fit in to the decor of any room and don't clash. Good size and amount of stuffing. A little more expensive than some decorator pillows but well worth it - I love that they are made in America and the quality is terrific. Three arrived yesterday and I am ordering another one!

          My mother-in-law loves her city and birds, so this was a no-brainier gift for her. It is a bit pricey, but the size and quality seem worth it. Hope she will like it.

            I ordered the Colorado pillow. My only complaint was that I had to work pretty hard to find a picture of what the Colorado pillow would look like. However, I absolutely love it. Such a fun and subtle way to have a little state pride. It's also really comfortable and the quality is great.

                My parents have lived in CT their entire lives (60 yrs) and will be moving shortly to PA. My mother especially is concerned about the move and leaving her family behind. I got her the pillow for PA, which was absolutely beautiful and well made. I told her to embrace the pillow and embrace her new home. I think the thought behind the gift, and the quality of the pillow made the gift worth it.
