Type Shy

Hello, I'm Stephanie. My line of nostalgic, keepsake papercut goods, Type Shy, started as a way to share my love of vintage paper & simple, impactful design. In the beginning, I was hand-cutting state silhouettes and glueing them onto hand-sewn journals, a favorite product at the time.

A few years ago, I discovered the world of diecut printers and was immediately drawn to how they allowed me to mix my professional design skills with the tactile process of papercraft. My process is still small-scale, producing items in a way that allows me to keep my hands in the design process and control over the quality of my products. 

My current line is inspired by some of life's best stuff: A sense of wanderlust and belonging, the transportation of a great book, a perfect afternoon spent with the people you love most. 

I use high-quality materials in all of my work, and create keepsakes that are beloved long after they are opened. (In fact, many people tell me they have framed Type Shy cards.) Because many of my items contain vintage paper, they are truly one of-a-kind gifts that will make your loved one feel super special.
