At Spoon&Sailor, we like to party like it’s 1899. This means that every single item that makes its way out the studio door is 100% handcrafted: all ink colors are custom mixed; each card that you receive is manually cut down to size on a turn of the century guillotine cutter; every one of your printed pieces has been hand-fed into a century old Chandler and Price platen press â€”Â often several times at that.
Elana Joy Wetzner is the captain of Spoon&Sailor. An award winning artist and designer from the great Northeast, Elana has been romantically involved with both words and letters for several decades and has been running the presses in dresses since 2003. True to her scholarly New England roots, she has collected both a BFA from Massachusetts College of Art and Design as well as an MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design (with a Certificate in Collegiate Art instruction from Brown University to boot). In her less inky time, she is a typography, design and photography professor at several local colleges and universities. Her print work has been published and exhibited both nationally and internationally. She rides a red bicycle and would very much like a dog.
