Handzy Shop + Studio is bursting at the seams with the work of so many independent artists, makers and designers!
Each month we feature someone local in our brick + mortar, giving our customers the opportunity to learn a bit more about them and their work and often the chance to meet them in person! For instance, this month we are featuring A.P. Loves Design—Andi is a local Ohioan who has been creating and selling her own line of stationery for two years!
Being a platform for other creatives is a huge part of what keeps us coming to work day after day. We love our local community but we also stock products from independent makers across the globe! The products in our shop are carefully selected and everything we carry inspires and motivates us. The "Stocked Spotlight" is a new thing we're going to be doing on our blog to highlight all of those people that are a bit too far from Covington to be a 'Maker of the Month' but that we are incredibly proud to stock in our shop!
First up is a brand we just started to carry here at Handzy and the truth is we are obsessed! Moglea is an Iowa-based letterpress studio that focuses on the craft of artful stationery and paper goods. Their production process is done by hand and make each piece feel one-of-a-kind. A good amount of the cards and notebooks are actually hand-painted! Moglea was launched in May of 2012 by Chad and Meg Gleason. After they moved to Chad's family farm in Audubon, Iowa, they bought a century-old letterpress and started creating the Moglea line. In the brick + mortar shop we've got a selection of Moglea's hand-painted notebooks, jotters and greeting cards. If you're reading this and you're not local to the greater Cincinnati area we just started to carry a limited selection of our product offering in our online shop!
