Compassion Kit: Cultivating Care
Art & Activity Journal
When we try to understand and ease pain, we set in motion a wave of infinite love and possibility.
This Compassion Kit includes: a 5"x7" letterpress-printed Art, Activity Journal and access to a Digital Guide.
The Art: This month’s art is by Portugal-based artist Ana Seixas. She says, “In moments of uncertainty, doubt, fear or pain, I give myself a hug and I hold myself through that moment.” For Ana, compassion is not about understanding the reason behind the pain, it’s recognising “the feeling or reaction is valid, and love is all it needs.”
Activity Journal: A 5x7" Activity Journal built for on-the-go reflection, will help you understand how Compassion plays a role in your life.
Digital Compassion Guide: In this guide, we explore how Compassion can enhance our relationship with ourselves and others. Learn how to activate self-compassion, develop a “quiet ego,” and practice a loving-kindness meditation to lead a compassion-centered life. Use this guide as a tool to grow your mindfulness practice and create deeper dialogue with your community.
- Shipping & Returns
All domestic orders over $50 ship free and all domestic orders under $50 have the option for $7 flat rate shipping.
For weekday orders placed before 4PM EST we typically pack and ship the same day. But with that said we are small team so we appreciate your patience for the times it takes a few days longer.
Shipping prices for international orders depend on which products you choose and shipping location: this is calculated at checkout.
International orders are subject to delays and import fees through customs and vary by location. These are outside of control and in our experience a bit unpredictable :-/
Goods bought from Holstee are meant to make you smile. If they don't, we haven't done something right!

For us, building a great company means making decisions about design and production that we are proud to share. With this in mind, we take care in every detail — from how we select our production partners, how our products are made, how they are packaged, and finally, how they impact you in your everyday life.
Below is a closer look at some of our products and how we produce them.
The cards are printed with the world's leading playing card producers, the United States Playing Card Company based in Kentucky, USA. They have been perfecting the quality of their cards since they started printing in 1867 and produce some the best quality cards in the world including Bicycle®, "Bee"®, Aviator®, and Hoyle® playing cards.
After reviewing samples from other vendors, we chose USPC for their print quality and their dedication to minimizing the environmental effects of production.
Our playing cards are crafted from sustainably-forested paper, starch-based laminating glue and vegetable-based printing inks. At the end of their long life, the cards are also recyclable.
Greater Good Toolkit
Every part of the The Greater Good Toolkit from the guides, to the box, to the shipping box we send it in are all printed and assembled in the USA. The guides are printed with our friends at PrintWest, a Washington state based printer we have had the pleasure of working with for many years. The box was created with Master Paper Box in Illinois using from approximately 95% recycled material, and the recycled cardboard shipping box was printed with Arizona Corrugated in, well you may have guessed it, Arizona :-)
Cards, Prints & Posters
We produce our prints with EM Letterpress and Aardvark Letterpress, two craft-driven letterpress printers based in North Attleboro, MA and Los Angeles, CA respectively. Both print shops have been huge supporters of Holstee since the beginning and we couldn't be more proud to work with them.
Our designs are printed using low VOC and non-toxic inks on bamboo and cotton papers that are both chlorine and acid-free.
In 2013, we meet the team at Urban Ashes and we were inspired by their work with reclaimed wood, as well as their approach to training and working with formerly incarcerated individuals.
Our frames are handcrafted from reclaimed wood taken from deconstructed homes and buildings in the Detroit Metro Area. The frames themselves are put together in Ann Arbor, MI.
We are proud that through our work with Urban Ashes, we are able to give both the wood of these frames, and the craftsman and women who assemble them, a second chance.
Our self-adhesive Manifesto Decal is produced by Riverworks Printing in Greenland, NH and Landor in the United Kingdom. The decal is printed onto biodegradable PVC-free polyester using eco-solvent, low VOC inks. The unique adhesive we use (designed to be posted and removed up to 100 times!) is phthalate-free and won’t damage your walls.
