Embrace your inner geek with our unique, handcrafted products, ranging from library-themed invitations to geeky greeting cards.

Jessica (the Bird) is a Pittsburgh native. Karl (the Beard) is originally from the outskirts of Cincinnati, and a bit of a computer nerd.

We got married in 2012, in a Southside bar/restaurant called the Library. Its cozy, homey, book-lined walls lent to a wedding invitation suite themed around libraries and books. Thanks to the overwhelming feedback from friends and family, we started selling those designs on Etsy.

In 2013, we launched a line of chemistry-themed geeky greeting cards based on the Periodic Table of the Elements that feature sayings from classy and traditional to sassy and youthful. Our cards can be found in several local shops and various independent stationery shops across the United States.
