Amelia Street Studio, created and run by the Alberti sisters, makes linocut prints, hand-printed and assembled feminist buttons and cards, handmade fabric tassels with linocut embellishments and other small decorative and holiday items. All designs are original to the studio.
The three sisters run a boutique creative agency that does branding, design and videos for small businesses by day. By night (and weekends), they craft art prints and collectibles with a feminist twist. With a focus primarily on handmade linocut prints, they have expanded to cards, buttons, totes and whatever other fun ideas pop into their heads. Whatever they produce, it’s handmade, a little sassy, a little pun-ny and always well designed.

Eldest sister Katy has worked in advertising and marketing for over a decade as the client liaison, strategist, copywriter and general overseer of things. She is a master at client services. With a Master’s in Psychology, she can basically read your mind.
Middlest sister Jenny has worked as a graphic designer for a decade and was an artist at a young age (her parents’ walls prove it). She has an uncanny ability to turn off-the-wall ideas into reality. She’s a creative whiz in every medium: pencil and paper, mouse and monitor, cutting knife and cardboard. She can pop out designs like a gurgling baby blowing air bubbles. She also generally keeps things looking professional.
Littlest sister Andrea graduated from Art Institute of Pittsburgh in Digital Film and has worked as videographer, editor and animator for 8 years. Her quiet intuition gives her the ability to capture shots you didn’t even know happened. Andrea’s artsy-fartsy perspective and wide-ranging skills allows the studio to produce unconventional, impression-generating videos for their clients. She has a real knack for choosing music that strikes the soul chords.
Over the years, Amelia Street Studio has developed a deep passion for helping ladies-in-biz step up, stand out and kick ass. They are continuing this mission through a documentary film, Head to Head, that is helping women with medically-induced hair loss redefine their identity and find their voice again. You can follow their film on Instagram @headtoheaddoc.
