snail mail superstar
I'm Sara, Snail Mail Superstar. I started designing greeting cards in 2009. I bought my first printing press and formally founded Constellation & Co. in 2011. I opened a brick & mortar stationery and gift store in 2014. My little dream has really grown over the years! I've been blessed to be able to hire employees and build my team, expand my little family of printing presses, teach workshops, host events, design window displays and much more. I love every single part of my dream job, but it's gotten a little complicated! Snail Mail Superstar is about celebrating written communication, having fun, and getting back to the reason I started all this:
I LOVE SNAIL MAIL.
Nothing major is changing. We're still doing business as Constellation & Co., still doing all the things you came to know and love about us. But this will be a place to step away from the day to day of running a business, and focus on the inspiring art of correspondence. I've started fresh Snail Mail Superstar Instagram and Twitter accounts for this purpose, and if you've seen my YouTube videos, you have a really good idea of what to expect. If this all sounds good to you, keep on scrolling! Or send me a letter. Did I mention that I love snail mail?
My youtube channel!
In March of 2018 I uploaded my first video to YouTube, and it's been an adventure ever since! I update this page with a recent video often, or you can head straight over to my channel. If you're just diving in, make sure to check out some of my favorites: National Stationery Show, Shopping with friends at Muji, Dancing in my Snail Shoes, and Snail Mail Wood Engraving.
The hurdles to good correspondence
This spring I wrote an article for Pretty By Post called "The Hurdles to Good Correspondence" in which I shared many reasons that people don't take the time to send snail mail, and all my best tips and tricks to make the process easier and more fun! I'd love for you to read it and let me know what you think!
