England has Smythson. Italy has Rossi. Ferris Wheel Press is set to become Canada’s illustrious purveyor of stationery, fountain pens, inks, and notebooks—so hopes Deborah Lau-Yu, who co-founded the burgeoning Toronto-based company with her partner, Raymond Yu.
Lau-Yu has long had a love for printing and stationery, and her intent with Ferris Wheel Press was to create “a lifestyle brand where the whimsical sights, sounds, and nostalgia of the carnival dances with the rat-tat-tat of a traditional print shop.” Want to thank a friend for sending you a housewarming gift or dog sitting for the weekend? Say it with a handwritten, emoji-less note on card stock or the company’s stationery, composed with Ferris Wheel Press’ Brush fountain pen, which bears this country’s maple leaf on its nib.
