Shinola & Woodchuck journals now available at The Windmill

We are SO excited to be sharing this news:  Shinola and Woodchuck journals are now in stock!

1-instagram-shinola

Shinola is a Detroit-based company with a commitment to beautiful design, quality craftsmanship, and American manufacturing.  They create a variety of American-made products, many of which are made at their factories in Detroit.  We're huge fans of their philosophy and ethics, and we're proud to be introducing Shinola's journals to Boca Raton.  We have both hard linen and soft linen journals in small, medium, and large, all in a variety of colors and interior pages.  They're made using all US-sourced materials from sustainably-managed forests.

Our must-have item from Shinola is The Runwell Planner - a thoughtfully designed weekly planner with a black hard linen cover and a lay-flat binding.

And now for Woodchuck!

3-IMG_5046-edit

Woodchuck is based in Minneapolis, and part of their mission is very similar to Shinola's - to bring jobs back to America, and to bring quality products back to consumers.  What sets their products apart is that they are made with beautiful, sustainably-sourced, FSC-certified real wood.  Each journal is created with wood from a single tree - we have Birch, Cedar, Walnut, Mahogany, and Rosewood (our favorite!), in both classic and pocket sizes.  Each wooden cover is individually selected for unique grain and quality.  The interior pages (which come blank or lined) are 100% recycled.

Woodchuck and Shinola are currently only available in-store, not in our online shop.  Stop in to see them - or give us a call and we're happy to ship them to you!

Wedding Weekend: Charlette & Robert and Tracey & Justin

Happy wedding weekend to Charlette & Robert and Tracey & Justin! We created everything from save the dates to programs and favor tags for Charlette's wedding.  Their wedding stationery suite was totally custom designed by us here at The Windmill, and printed by Page Stationery.  Our favorite piece is their save the date, which includes a timeline of their relationship - we just adore this idea!

Tracey and Justin had a destination wedding in Longboat Key, Florida, so they wanted to incorporate a beachside feel to their invitations while still keeping them very elegant.  They chose gold foil for their invitations and gold letterpress for the rest of the pieces, printed on cotton paper by Haute Papier.  We love how each piece of their invitation suite included a bit of their monogram in some way.

Christina and Nolan had this amazing idea for ceremony programs that fold into paper airplanes, for their adventure-themed wedding.  We designed a compass-based wedding logo for their day-of pieces, along with matching table cards, a photo booth sign, and a seating chart.
