PRESS RELEASE — PORTLAND, OREGON/July 29, 2022 /(BUSINESS WIRE) — Greeting card publisher and concept shop Paper Epiphanies announced today that it has launched the first-of-its-kind Web3 card collaboration with metaverse favorite Sad Girls Bar. This collection is the first in a permanent initiative for the company in what they are calling — OG Meets Web3™.
“We are beyond excited to reveal our first Web3 crossover collaboration. Web3 is the future of technology and there is no reason physical consumer products cannot grow right along with it,” said Victoria Venturi, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Paper Epiphanies. “Female founded, Sad Girls Bar is the perfect fit as our NFT launch partner. Not only is the art, by artist Glam Beckett, incredible, but the tone of the Sad Girls Bar universe aligns perfectly with Paper Epiphanies’ mission to empower real conversations. ‘Sad Girls’ are both emotional and strong, a dichotomy that truly reflects the power of women.”
The Sad Girls Bar collaboration includes 7 letterpress greeting cards and 2 letterpress art prints all of which were created from NFT art owned by Paper Epiphanies. The collection which began conception in January 2022 was letterpress printed at the Paper Epiphanies’ flagship store in Portland, Oregon, USA on vintage Heidelberg Windmill presses.
“It is wonderful to watch Sad Girls Bar expand into other industries like greeting cards,” said Sad Girls Partnerships Manager Eugene Myalenkov. “Our brand proves to be a powerhouse in both the metaverse and now, the physical universe.”
This OG Meets Web3™ collection is available today at www.paperepiphanies.com. The digital blockchain NFTs will be displayed on screens alongside the letterpress collection at Paper Epiphanies’ flagship store for a truly immersive experience. The collaboration will also be available globally at a variety of brick-and-mortar stores in late Summer 2022.
