Meet Rust Belt Love

Rust Belt Love is a stationery and gift company that focuses on connecting people with beautiful messages on floral letterpress greeting cards. Owners Alyson and Nick believe that what people need now more than ever is real human connection. After 10 years of designing custom wedding stationery, Rust Belt Love launched their wholesale line of sentimental letterpress stationery for paper lovers who want to send heartfelt messages with a thoughtful, handmade look and feel. Alyson is a classically trained illustrator who does all of the drawing and designing, and Nick does all of the printing, often on their 100-year-old letterpresses. Rust Belt Love was nominated for a 2021 Louie Award in the Rising Start category and will be featuring their full line for the first time in-person at the August NY NOW show.

Everything we create is completely one of a kind because the illustrations are drawn by Alyson’s hand and then pressed one at a time by Nick. Every year, we partner with One Tree Planted to plant a tree for every wedding invitation we create and plan to extend this now to planting a tree for every wholesale order we receive.
