about us + contact information
Cherry Laurel Studio is a Southern design and letterpress studio in Decatur, Georgia (just east of Atlanta). Why mention our latitude? Because this place is a part of our heritage, our history and gives us our namesake, our founder's ancestral home (above left) in Laurel, Mississippi. This stately Southern charmer's legacy is at the root of how we approach design, romance message and spin stories. Think hospitality. Think all the details, all taken care of. Think a little southern comfort (the "yes ma’am" kind, and the liqueur) splashed right into the work.
We were founded in 2011 by Elizabeth Kotz, a proud cum laude graduate of NC State University's College of Design, though our journey started many years prior with the purchase of Elizabeth's first press in 2004. We currently run four printing presses; our 10x15 Chandler & Price ("Venus") does most of the heavy lifting.
A few years ago we made a video of the making of one of our cards. We still think it's a pretty neat condensation of the process if you'd like to watch it below.
We’re always doing something around here, and sometimes we like to send out updates about goings-on. Want to hear from us? Sign up for email updates (Spam’s just not our thing, don’t worry), follow us on twitter, drop us an email at inquiry [at] cherrylaurelstudio.com or find us on Facebook. We are proud members of the Ladies of Letterpress, Atlanta Printmakers Studio, and AIGA.
Alternately, we adore good old-fashioned snail mail.
