Happy Birthday, Happy Penguin!

Happy Birthday, Happy Penguin!

Today, this dear Penguin of ours turns two. It’s hard to believe that two years have passed since we opened our doors, but here we are. We’re ever so thankful, too.



We’ve grown from a little place that sold a few cards on Etsy to being carried in one of our favorite local stores (Three Sheets, Homewood, AL), our local West Elm, Front & Co. in Vancouver, and just this week, The Paper Project in Australia. We never saw this coming!



So to celebrate, we’re releasing a new card and art print in three colors featuring a quote by the Avett Brothers. Appropriate, don’t you think? Celebrate with us: All orders today get 25% off and a special gift! Use code HAPPYTURNSTWO.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for making these first two years so wonderful for us. We couldn’t do it without your support, and it means the world to us.

Much love,

Ashley and Bryan

Happy Penguin Celebrates One Year!

Happy Penguin Celebrates One Year!



Who would have thought, but time has flown. Today marks our first birthday! We can’t believe where a year has brought us…

…97 Etsy sales
…a visit to the Ladies of Letterpress conference in beautiful Asheville, NC, in August 2012
buying our own press!
…mentions on countless blogs such as Fellow Fellow, The Petit Cadeau, Discover Paper, and Oh So Beautiful Paper, to name a few
…a shout-out on Southern Living magazine’s Facebook page and blog
…which led to printing something for the magazine’s March issue!

And now, we turn one. Any one year old knows that one is a very big year, and Happy is hoping that the same will be true for us. We couldn’t have made it this far without those who have supported us—you! So from the bottoms of our hearts…

birthday3As an added bonus (and because as much as we really want to bake you a cake to celebrate with us, that’s hard to do over the Internet), we’re giving you a little something extra: 25% off! (Use code “HappyTurnsOne” when you check out.) And right in time for some new work (greeting cards! an art print! baby announcements!!) that we’re launching next week! I know, I know, our squeals are kind of annoying. But we’re excited, and we just can’t help ourselves.

Thanks again for making our first year so special!
