---- Size ----
These cards have the name of your choice printed in either a horizontal or a vertical orientation. The cards measure about 4.5 x 6.25 inches. They are printed in my home studio with rubber based ink on my Chandler and Price letterpress on 100% cotton, white paper.
---- Orientation ----
I can print these cards in either a vertical orientation with your name on the short edge (shown in photo) or a horizontal orientation with your name on the long edge. Please specify which you prefer on the personalization form. If no orientation is specified they will be printing in a vertical orientation.
---- Envelopes ----
Choose from Kraft(shown), Gray, or white envelopes. Please note the Kraft and gray envelopes have a triangle flap and the white envelopes have a square flap. The white envelopes match the letterpress paper in color exactly but are a lighter paper weight.
---- Address Printing ----
I offer the option to letterpress print your address on the envelopes, this is an additional cost, please select the "+ address" option from the "number of cards" drop down menu. The ink color must be the same ink color as you are using for the cards. Keep in mind, taupe ink will not show up on the Kraft envelopes, and gray ink will not show up on gray envelopes.
---- Custom ----
I can also print these on different sizes and with custom ink colors. Please message me with your custom order request for a quote.
---- Packaging ----
Sets of 50 or more cards come in a reusable, kraft, chipboard box with a sticker of my logo on it. Sets of 25 cards come in a corrugated kraft box with my logo stamped on top.
---- Printing process ----
I press each of these cards individually in my home studio on a 100 year old letterpress. I mix the ink by hand from base colors. Letterpress ink is not entirely opaque, and the colors may vary in saturation and tone from what is shown on the proof. Due to the handmade process, each card is unique, but that's what makes handmade beautiful!
--- Sustainability ---
Sustainability is important to me and I've made an effort to reflect that in this product. The paper used for the cards is 100% cotton, made with wind and hydro energy. The part of the cotton plant used to make paper is considered a pre-consumer waste by product of the textile industry that would otherwise be discarded if it weren't made into paper. The envelopes that come with the cards are made from 30% post consumer waste or cotton depending on the color. These cards are shipped in a recyclable box.
