Sponsor Spotlight: Est. 1986 (and a Giveaway!)

It's that time again! I would like to introduce you to the lovely Ashley Wong of Est. 1986. I first discovered Ashley's shop via Design Sponge and absolutely fell in love with her work. So, as you can imagine, I was thrilled when Ashley offered to sponsor the blog! She describes her hand-made linoleum block and silkscreen paper goods as 'hand printed sarcasm'. It really doesn't get much better than that.


I’m originally from Minnesota and moved to New York after college as an art director for an ad agency. Designing, building, and tinkering have always been passions of mine – hand printing seemed like a logical and fun move. I am primarily self-taught and self-scarred when it comes to linoleum block and screenprinting.


My small shop began in 2011 with the hopes of not only printing cards and posters that made people smile, but also something they might hang on to. My work is inspired by an appreciation for simplicity, texture and general sarcasm.
