From We Are Brainstorm’s website: Our print work is inspired by science, nature, and the outdoors. We also tackle geography and food when we feel like it. We prefer craft shows over gallery shows and love the mountains more than the city. We love the role of the poster in society and will forever prefer it as our means of creative communication.
We love Sapling Press.

We love everything about Quilling Card, from the meticulously detailed handmade artwork to the fact that the company is built on the fair work principles.
A little about Quilling Card from their website:
The art of quilling has been around for centuries. Originating in ancient Egypt, quilling has persevered through time, most notably making its mark throughout the eastern world. During the Renaissance, nuns and monks would roll gold-gilded paper to adorn religious objects, mimicking costly gold filigree.
In later years, quilling continued to be practiced throughout Europe as it caught on as a leisurely activity for affluent women.
The name quilling comes from the origin of the art; birds’ feathers, or quills, were used to coil the strips of paper around. Today, quilling is still enjoyed throughout the world as an art form and hobby.
Quilling Card, rooted in Vietnam, has been incredibly fortunate to assemble a team of women who have become passionate about the art of quilling. All of our cards are handcrafted, every card taking one hour to complete.
Each artist is assigned one design for the most efficient workflow, so she can get to know the design and create a consistency in her work and our final product.
In addition to our wonderful team, Quilling Card has also been able to establish a Cottage Industry in Vietnam. Societal aid for those with disabilities is not the same as it is in the US, and often leaves people out of work and help.
We have set up a program where these members of the community can come take our supplies and complete work in their home, on their own time. They are paid per piece finished, and are able to contribute and create beautiful work they otherwise would not have the chance to.
All of our cards begin as a preliminary drawing. From there, the artist decides which shapes will make up and form the final design.
