ABOUT US

Nourishing Notes is a celebration of food! 

Started in 2007 by Julie Morelli and Andy Schwegler (shortly after they opened their design studio Letterform) Nourishing Notes combines their passions for food, design, illustration, type, and laughter. One joke about a lamb shank quickly turned into the very first greeting card, which led to a crash course in letterpress printing, which led to a full line of stationery, kitchen towels, art prints, and lots more in the years to come. 

Julie heads up the design, writing, printing and baguette baking. Andy takes care of the logistics, editing, joke testing and fresh pasta making.

OUR PROCESS . . . Just like a good pasta dough starts with a few basic ingredients, our creative process starts with some paper, a pencil and a strong cup of coffee.

Our ideas, witty sayings, and illustrations are all dreamt up in our studio, supported by years of food research—eating everything in sight. We put every pun through extensive testing and if it makes it through, on the press it goes!

We like getting our hands dirty whether it be while printing with our press or while making biscuits. Through Nourishing Notes we want folks to get excited about food, to share it with others, and laugh along the way!
