Popolo Press!

We had a great drop-in the other day from Kiva Stimac of Popolo Press, here in Montreal. She posted an excellent bit about us on her blog: Popolo Press

Kiva has a beautiful print studio that we love to visit her in, where she makes everything from art and rock posters, screen-printed t-shirts, cards, and other paper goods - much of which we carry in the store. Check out her blog - and come by the shop to see her work in person.

Thanks Kiva!
