Tucked-Letterpress By Katie Barr

“I like to be tucked away … it’s probably going to happen when my little ones are tucked in … and a tucked shirt means that you are neat and ready to go. I hope the vibe of Tucked is always like all of those moments … warm and crisp.”Katie Barr

The 4th GULPER of the week goes to Katie Barr, owner of Tucked, who offers the sweetest way to share an announcement. Tucked is truly a heart-warming way to send a beautifully classic hand-pressed letter.

Katie lives in her cozy home in Charlottesville, Virginia and has an unwavering love for her precious babies, and a passion for her recently founded letterpress business. Her classic pieces transform the bland Hallmark messages of  “Greetings” “We are Engaged!” or “We are having a baby!” to something more, something personal,  simple & chic. Katie unveils the true feelings and experience behind the common announcement.

Tucked drives the meaning behind the three C’s, Clean, Classy, and Creative. As spring is upon us and wedding season lingers near, be sure to check out Tucked for announcements that your guests will keep on their fridge all year long. Contact Katie here.

UVA Men’s Basketball Coach, Tony Bennett

“That good old song of Wah-hoo-wah
we’ll sing it o’er and o’er
It cheers our hearts and warms our blood
to hear them shout and roar
We come from old Virginia,
where all is bright and gay
Let’s all join hands and give a yell
for dear old U.Va.

Wah-hoo-wah, wah-hoo-wah! Uni-V, Virginia!
Hoo-rah-ray, hoo-rah-ray, ray, ray—U-Va!”

We couldn’t be more honored to give our second GULPER of the week to the George Clooney of Basketball—Coach Tony Bennett. What an amazing season here in hoo’ville for the UVA Men’s Basketball team. Joe Harris and Akil Mithcell certainly took it to the house against cuse’, all made possible by the encouraging voice of Coach TB.

With season tickets to the games, the gulpers  witnessed TB at his finest, up close & personal. Game after game, the stadium was packed with avid Wahoos  who just couldn’t get enough of this stellar season, made possible by coach TB. Bennett not only enabled individual player stardom, but he created a basketball team that echoed the true meaning of what team-work actually is.

On Monday evening, we attended coaches corner at Wild Wing’s Cafe where TB shared his insight on the past season, and strategies for defeating the winner of the Maryland vs. Florida State game this upcoming Friday. We ripped into some hot-spicy-wings dunked in blue cheese, as we listened to the coach who led our Virginia men’s basketball team to its first outright ACC regular season title since 1981.

Monday evening ended in a slam dunk with TB’s autograph and a GULPER duo picture! Thanks Coach Bennett for the truly amazing season and for being easy on the eyes;) Go Hoos!
