About Us

 

 

 

Kiss and Punch® creates funny and punny letterpress for paper lovers everywhere. We specialize in sweet and spicy sentiments with a punch! Our goal is to spread love through paper, one card at a time.

Founder and designer Julie Stewart is a former corporate counsel at a Fortune 100 corporation. She has a juris doctorate degree from UCLA but learned the craft of letterpress and graphic design at the San Francisco Center for the Book and Otis College of Art and Design, respectively. Personal stationery took on a whole new meaning for Julie when she planned and designed all paper elements of her August 2008 wedding. She has not looked back since, creating greeting cards, prints, business logos, and lovely wedding and baby stationery.
 
Kiss and Punch has been exhibited at the National Stationery Show in New York City, as well as the Las Vegas Market and NY NOW. Their greeting cards have been featured in The Wall Street Journal, Oh So Beautiful Paper, Paper Crave, Mail Models, Brit + Co., Olivebox Card Box, 8balloons.com, glo.com and Design Soak, and other blogs. Kiss and Punch was honored to be a 2015 and 2014 Martha Stewart American Made Finalist for Paper Crafts and curated items from the Kiss and Punch collection are now available on the Martha Stewart American Made Marketplace on Handmade at Amazon.
 
Julie currently lives in West Los Angeles, California with her husband, son and Yorkshire Terrier.
