Inklore is Ink with a Story
Hi there, my name is Sam. I am a block print artist living with my wonderful husband and adorable children in San Jose, California. When I’m not blogging, designing, or printing I enjoy all of the small pleasures of life: warm bread, fresh basil from the garden, a finished project, something pretty for my home, clean sheets, a good hearty laugh, or a cup of tea and good book.
When I started Inklore in 2008 it was with the intention of hand crafting items that add pleasure to everyday living. Whether it is a new cushion for your sofa, a hand printed card for your friend’s birthday, or a modern growth chart to keep track of how fast your children are growing, everything I make at Inklore is meant to help you and those you love savor each and every day.
Inspired by nature and the everyday items we all use, I print my designs on high quality linen and cotton using environmentally sensitive, water-based inks. Everything is washable and color-fast, perfect for simple living.
In 2010, I expanded on my initial ideas with Good Measure, a life-style blog which updates daily with ideas for adding little extras to your everyday life. Good Measure offers ideas for you and your kitchen, garden, home and studio and is meant to inspire you to go beyond the things you have to do, and to really savor each day.
