Sneak peak of the store!

Lots of exciting updates today... starting with our brand new business cards!  We love the stunning black letterpress, luxurious double-thick cotton paper - and check out how gorgeous this edge painting looks!  We can't wait to start handing these out! IMG_0842-adj


We also received the hang tags for our packaging from a great Etsy seller.  The 100% recycled PCW paper for the tags was special ordered to go along with our eco-friendly bags and tissue paper.  We hand stamped our logo on 500 of these!


And the best part... we've started putting our products up on the shelves!  Here's a sneak peak!




Our shelving & furniture is done!

26 shelves, 3 tables, 4 bookcases, over 100 concrete anchors, and countless [can we talk about impossible?] Ikea instruction booklets later, we can finally say that our store furniture is completely installed!  We decided on black and white furnishings against the gray walls - our beautiful papers and cards will bring plenty of color.

Now we are ready to bring in our cards, gift wrap, notebooks, coasters, etc. - as well as our custom albums!  Speaking of which, this beautiful events album from Allie Munroe arrived - we cannot wait to share that awesomeness that's inside.  Stay tuned!

Page Stationery is here!

We are SO excited to announce that Page Stationery's custom albums have arrived!  The Windmill will be carrying Page's letterpress wedding, holiday, and baby announcement collections, as well as their amazing flat-printed stationery collection.  Here's just a small selection of this huge collection of designs: page-2 page-5 page-4 page-7

The highlights: classic letterpress wedding designs for the traditional bride, duplexing and pockets (to get a layered effect with your invitations), digital printing (think adding a family photo to your holiday cards), and an astonishingly large selection of patterns for the back of your personal stationery (including a rugged fishing lure pattern - we're looking at you, South Florida fishermen!).

We can't wait to share this amazing collection with you!

We're making progress!

were-getting-there We've installed most of our signs, completed our construction work, and finished painting the walls (despite the five straight days of work, deciding on a color was by far the hardest part!). With a huge thanks to Ikea and their amazing selection, we've started installing shelving!  As you've seen, our custom albums have started arriving, and preprinted cards and other paper items will be coming in shortly as well.



Stay tuned for our grand opening date, as well as specials and events we'll be hosting in honor of the opening.  In the meantime, check our blog often, where we'll be posting our gorgeous new products and offerings as they arrive.  And, as always, keep up with us on Facebook and Twitter for the latest updates.




Haute Papier has arrived at The Windmill!

The construction dust is still settling in our downtown Boca Raton boutique, and we're making progress on installing furniture (hold tight, we'll be sharing some before & after photos soon!).  But we just had to announce the exciting news that our first custom invitation line, Haute Papier, has arrived!

Haute Papier specializes in letterpress and foil stamping (love!), and they also offer machine calligraphy addressing to match your fonts.  With ink options, customization options, embellishment options, and so much more... there's just an endless amount that can be done with these gorgeous designs to make a totally unique creation (and did we mention the envelope liners? You HAVE to see these!).  We can't wait to show it off!



Happy holidays from The Windmill

newsletter-img-FINAL We're hard at work transforming our empty store space into a chic boutique filled with must-have paper items (foil-stamped cards! monogrammed notebooks! neon gift wrap!).  In the new year, we'll be posting about all of our great products as we receive them, as well as updates on our store progress.  Until then, we wish everyone a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year!
