About Us

About Us

Shoehorn Press is a design studio based in Orlando, FL.

We are a creative co-op founded on the ideals of creating, collaborating, and promoting products we love and feel passionate about.

Spooky Cat Press, our first venture, is a passion project years in the making. Like many gothic & horror fanatics, we dream of Halloween all year. We want to tastefully integrate all our favorite spooky themes into elevated, usable products with this idea in mind. We're all about creating wearable goth clothing, ghoulish gifts & greeting cards, and other lifestyle products made for horror-loving, low-key goths like ourselves. Our goal with Spooky Cat is to fulfill this niche, creating a shared sensibility for beautifully designed spooky-themed products made for every day, every season, and every occasion.

OUR MISSION

We love paper greetings and gift wrap but we also LOVE OUR PLANET!
We are striving to use and source sustainably whenever possible. As our company grows, so will our options.

  • GREETINGS CARDS - Our cards are printed in studio, on acid free card stock made from 30% Post Consumer Recycled Content.
  • We tried many papers before choosing our linen card stock for the beautiful print quality and commitment to sustainability.
  • ENVELOPES - Our envelopes are made from 100% Recycled Paper
  • CELLOPHANE - The cello bags we are using in most of our packaging are plant-based PLA (polylactic acid) and are certified compostable.

Supporting Local & Domestic Resources + GIVING BACK TO THE COMMUNITY

  • We believe in community. We will strive to partner with local print shops and other domestic resources to produce Spooky Cat goods.
  • 10% of each Spooky Cat T-shirt goes to supporting a local charity. A percentage of our profits will also be donated to a National Cause.
  • We want our brand to reflect our belief in the greater good, in shared creativity, a feeling of belonging, and expressing one's passion.

Reuse / Upcycle / Recycle

We're looking for ways to reuse or give multiple purposes for paper gift wrap and greeting cards. If you have any ideas, please share them!
