Amethyst & Gold foil business cards for Parisi Events

Robert Parisi of Parisi Events picked up his business cards less than 15 minutes ago, but we can't wait another second to share them!!  These ultra-thick cards feature gold foil stamping on amethyst paper, duplexed to white 100% cotton paper with amethyst and black letterpress inks - completed with metallic gold edge paint.  Rob chose a unique square shape for his business cards - and these will definitely leave an impression on everyone who receives one.

Shop Small & Shop Local

In the spirit of giving, we ask you all to please consider supporting small businesses when you do your holiday shopping this year.

Every dollar spent at a locally owned, independent business generates 2-3 times more economic activity in our communities than a dollar spent at a national chain.  When you shop small, you pay someone's rent, put gas in their car and encourage their dream.

We feel so very lucky to have such incredible customers all year round, but especially during the holidays. We hope you will continue to shop local and shop small - it truly does make a difference in our local economy and in the lives of countless artisans, designers and community members.

Oh, hi there!  We're Sarah and Shawn Gluchacki, the owners of The Windmill Paper Boutique.  In celebration of Small Business Saturday tomorrow, we thought we'd share a little about ourselves.
Sarah has a BFA in graphic design and painting, and got her start working in a letterpress printing company in Syracuse, New York.  Shawn has a background in math and physics and (shockingly) has basic social skills.  We were our own first clients when we got married in August 2012, and then moved to Boca Raton to open up The Windmill.  We'll travel pretty far for craft beer and great meals, we're serious coffee snobs, and we are known among our friends to send the greatest cards for every occasion (go figure!).  We love paper, invitations, weddings, dogs, and a perfect beach day.

The Windmill featured on Downtown Boca!

We are so honored to be featured on Downtown Boca this week!  Here's a glimpse of the article:

Join the fight against bland, boring paper

windmillpaper-1

Sarah Gluchacki is on a mission: to rid the world of cookie-cutter cards, notebooks and tacky giftwrap. Sound silly? There’s a serious side. At Gluchacki’s new Downtown Boca stationery shop, The Windmill Paper Boutique, she sources products only from small design and print shops and works hard to offer environmentally-friendly staples you wouldn’t normally find in chain card shops.

“I strive to support local vendors with eco-friendly practices,” says Gluchacki, who opened The Windmill after a stint as the lead graphic designer for a wedding invitation company. “I do my best to provide the freshest patterns, hues, and designs available – products that are not only useful, but beautiful as well.”

In her shop, every item is hand-crafted on natural papers made of materials like cotton and bamboo. Gluchacki specializes in custom invitations and stationery, but also carries a full stock of ready-to-buy paper goods like patterned notebooks, customized gift wrap and note cards.

“We’re all about utilizing bold patterns, bright colors, and classy, fun, cheeky designs from famous designers,” Gluchacki says. “These aren’t your typical convenience store cards.”
