red, WRITE & blue

mac & murphy along with Jess Riley PR and Twin Muses have teamed up with Adopt A US Soldier to honor active US military personnel. Adopt A US Soldier is a volunteer-based organization that connects supportive Americans (that's you!) with deployed soldiers and offers a channel by which to communicate encouragement and express gratitude to the brave men and women serving our country.

here's how it works:

1) stop into mac & murphy (74.5 cannon street) september 3 - september 10 and receive 10% off select letterpress and greeting cards

2) write a letter communicating encouragement, gratitude or try your luck at a witty joke...whatever you think will make a soldier's day

3) take a moment to write your message while in the store (you can sit in our writing garden!) or just drop your card back off at mac & murphy by september 10, and we'll take care of postage/shipping

its that easy.

**all cards will be shipped on September 11, 2009**

please join in this effort to share the love....

mac & murphy NOW OPEN blog posted by Erica Jackson on Sat, Apr 11, 2009 at 11:21 AM



We are thrilled to announce our grand opening at 74.5 Cannon Street in the Upper King Design District neighborhood of Cannonborough/Elliotborough. The mac & murphy retail space built in the 1920’s is believed to originally have been a cobbler’s shop and has been beautifully restored over the years. Gal pals, Liz Macpherson and Ami Murphy renovated the 750-square-foot space to reflect an enchanting, modern day jewelry box. This fresh feel was achieved by contrasting historic elements with vibrant splashes of color and clean lines. From the invitation studio, walk out back through century-old French doors to the terrace garden - a peaceful setting for writing, journaling or addressing a letter which you are welcome to leave in their post box for a real mailman to hand deliver for you. mac &murphy will even provide the stamp!
