---- Paper & Printing ----
These cards have the name(s) of your choice printed on 100% cotton, 118 lb (318 gsm), soft white card stock that is made specifically for letterpress. The cards measure about 4.5 x 6.25 inches. They are printed in my home studio with rubber based ink on my antique Chandler and Price letterpress. They are printed in a horizontal (name on the long side) orientation. I can also print in a vertical orientation on request.
---- 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.
---- Packaging ----
The cards and envelopes come in a reusable, cardboard box with a sticker of my logo on it.
---- 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!
These cards are 100% cotton and tree free! They are made using wind and hydro energy. The gray and kraft envelopes are made from 30% post consumer waste, and the white envelopes are 100% cotton. Most of my packaging is either recyclable or recycled. My shipping labels and liners are fully curbside recyclable. In my printing studio, I recycle, compost, and reuse as much as I can. My studio and office are powered by 100% renewable energy.
