wholesale catalog winter 2017

Well, hello to our wonderful shops and boutiques! It’s always a bit funny to be talking about the Holidays in blazing hot summer, but in the retail world we know: Quarter 4 is fast upon us! For our 2017 Winter releases, we have added brightly foiled holiday photo cards! Perfect for retail shops (since so many customers have fled the brick and mortar to now ordering online), these are ready to go in packages of 10, with a spot to affix a 4 x 4 inch instagram photo (or trimmed 4 x 6 snap) and write a message on the back. Definitely great for targeting last minute card senders. Our guided taste and travel journals continue to be a big hit, and are perfect for holiday gifting. Also among our new releases: moving notes, meal thank yous and other obscure but awesome cards that are great to fill in occasion gaps in your shop. In addition, due to the wonderful retail market response we’ve received with our Ink Wild Kids coloring cards, we’ve expanded the line with another complete set all about food! Yay!

we’re social like that.

Our catalog cover features our collaborative 2017 Pie Calendar with recipes by Elise Bauer of the famous blog Simply Recipes! Featuring 12 seasonal pie recipes (and one amazing crust!), the calendar is gouache painted, hand-illustrated, and then offset and letterpress printed, sure to be a smash hit in the 2017 calendar market. This year, we are so proud to release matching cotton pie recipe tea towels! And: Yum.

183 East Sixth Street, Chico, California 95928 | 530-592-3697 |

our story Wild Ink Press is a little letterpress studio in Chico, up in northern California. We design and manufacture (made in our space from start to finish): witty and pretty greeting cards, stationery and other paper goods in our downtown shop renovated from an old soda bottling plant. We keep old printing machines and techniques alive, but liven them up with fresh artwork and zingy prose! Our paper goods are eco-produced from recycled stock and also 100% made in the USA (by us) for you. When not designing and printing greeting cards, owners Rebekah and Matt Tennis can be found wrangling their three young boys, running a tractor on the family rice farm, or attempting to travel the world. The company has grown and expanded over the years, and we now are a staff of six and have a retail and printing space in downtown Chico where we still do just what we started at the beginning: design cards, print them on old presses, one ink at a time, and package them with care for you to give and receive.

we’re social like that.
