Paper with a Purpose
In 2023 we are committed to impacting the world beyond our little earring studio. We will be donating a portion of sales every month to Convoy of Hope's Empowering Women initiative.
Welcome to Monday Morning Press… where passion meets alllllll things paper! I’m Natalie Monday, the owner, designer, printer and maker behind MMP. I am a letterpress wedding stationer-turned paper jewelry artist. I design a NEW COLLECTION of paper jewelry each month based on a different color palette/theme. Many of my creations feature handmade papers (not by me), metallics, glitter and artist collab designs. Some even include textures printed on my 115 year old letterpress that I hand-feed and treadle by foot!
Natalie has a degree in Architecture from Virginia Tech and worked in a design firm for 6 years prior to opening MMP. She works out of her home studio in Richmond, Virginia while also balancing the roles of wife to Nick and mother to 3 young girls, Olivia, Charley, and Brooklyn. You will often see them featured on her Instagram!
My paper earrings are made from multiple layers of card stock, chipboard, and paper. Every piece is handmade by me and my wonderful team of 4 amazing women. Each layer of paper is carefully glued, cut, sealed and assembled. The earrings are rigid but perfectly (and extremely) lightweight for any day of the week! They are sealed for water resistance… not for submersion which means you should be ok if you get caught in the rain unexpectedly, but don’t jump into a pool or bath! Trust me…
I currently have over 45 unique earring styles that I have named after my friends, family, and most loyal customers and I’m always adding new ladies to the mix (you could be next!). Be on the lookout for surprise PLAY DAY pop-ups. These are one-of-a-kind pieces that I create when I need a day “off” to just sit down and PLAY, PLAY, PLAY … they often feature mixed papers from past collections and are some my biggest and funkiest designs!
