---- Paper & Printing ----
These cards have the name of your choice printed on 100% cotton, 118 lb (318 gsm), soft white card stock that is made specifically for letterpress. These flat 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 in either blue or pink ink. They are printed in a horizontal (name on the long side) orientation. I can also print in a vertical orientation on request. They come with white, cotton envelopes.
---- 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.
---- Custom ----
I can also print these on different sizes, with different fonts, and with custom ink colors. Please message me with your custom order request for a quote.
---- 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 from fibers reclaimed from the garment industry and produced using wind and hydro energy. The gray and kraft envelopes are made from 30% post consumer waste, and the white envelopes are 100% cotton. All of my packaging is either recyclable, compostable, recycled, or otherwise eco-friendly. 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. Additionally, for each order, we plant one tree through our partner, One Tree Planted!
