Lily Smith-Kirkley isn’t just the brains behind Lilco Letterpress, a new design and print studio in West Dallas. She’s also the brawn, hand-feeding paper through her 700-pound Vandercook SP-15 letterpress machine, sometimes two or three times to achieve a multi-color, multi-dimensional look. But the end results are worth the effort: Smith-Kirkley’s line of cards are charming and unpretentious. (Why say äóìthanksäó or äóìhappy birthdayäó when you could say äóìgraciasäó or äóìyou ain’t no spring chickenäó instead?) If you’re looking for something personalized, she can work with you to design custom stationery, invitations, and the like of any scope or budget. In need of a gift? Smith-Kirkley also produces prints and tea towels with the same aesthetic and sense of humor.
