Award-winning Ladyfingers Letterpress is an LGBTQ+ owned-and-operated stationery and gift brand based in Colorado Springs, CO founded by wife-and-wife team, Arley-Rose Torsone and Morgan Calderini.
We launched our business in 2011 when our own wedding invitation went viral and we quickly became very busy producing (totally insane!) one-of-a-kind wedding invitations for the most creative and amazing clients. After the weddings were over, we noticed that our clients would come back and ask if we had any letterpress cards to celebrate the holidays, birthdays, etc. As a result, we decided to launch a humble line of greeting cards at the 2013 National Stationery show and to our surprise, the line took off and our products are now sold in over 800 stores around the world.
Period Six Studio is our mother-daughter collaboration, and boy has it been a long time coming! We’ve been a team taking on the world…one car ride at a time, working through our best (and worst) ideas while running errands, supporting each other’s activities and putzing*. We are REALLY great putzers. Now all that doing “nothing” (as Dad and Gramma put it) is being put to good use, for it was in that time that we shared our mutual love of finding cool stuff, interesting people, and observing the world. What we’ve seen is what we hope to share at Period Six.
