Slow Down to a Snail’s Pace
Posted: 08/02/2011 @ 7:43 AM in Great Work,Stationery
Owned and operated by the monks of Saint Meinrad Archabbey and Abbey Press , Snail’s Pace is a different kind of company with a history rooted in monastic tradition, over 140 years of experience in the printing business and a commitment to the natural environment.
Their product line includes greeting cards, wrapping paper, gift bags, journals, and recipe cards that are printed at FSC-certified Abbey Press with soy-based inks. Their cards and gift wrap are 100% post-consumer fiber paper from Mohawk Fine Papers that is made with windpower and made carbon neutral. The artwork pays tribute to the beauty that surrounds us and features a variety of artists including a line of cards based on Alpine flower illustrations found in the Archabbey Library’s Rare Book Room.
The entire collection invites an appreciation of a slower lifestyle built upon moderation, balance and meaningful communication. A personal birthday wish for a friend, a journal filled with one’s private musings, a recipe card in Aunt Grace’s own handwriting—each is a treasured memory. It is the kind of thoughtful interaction that is often lost in today’s digital age but Snail’s Pace helps people find ways to live fully in the present and still embrace the warm traditions of the past.
