Hi! I'm Carolann
I'm a graphic designer, letterer, side hustler, and the owner here at Pink House Press. I started my journey as a business owner in early 2013 when I built a letterpress machine from scratch, set up an Etsy shop, and sold a print dedicated to my home state of North Carolina. Several years and ditched day jobs later, I've turned Pink House Press into two Etsy shops, a Minted store, a Zazzle store, and now have products sold in major retailers. I love picking up new skills and believe hand lettering is my greatest superpower.
The name "Pink House Press" is dedicated to the house I lived in during college with a group of girls who would become lifelong friends. I was living in the Pink House when I fell in love with graphic design (and my husband) at UNC-Chapel Hill, and I think it holds a special creative "juju" inside. Other creatives rumored to have lived there include Ben Folds during the formation of Ben Folds Five, and (verified true) a resident who was inspired to make a movie based on the house. Whatever rumors may exist, I like to think a special spirit of creativity lingers there that I picked up along the way.
I now work from my home office in Washington, DC where I love to work out on our balcony with my dog, Luna, at my feet.
