LETTERPRESS / HAND-PRINTED CHRISTMAS CARDS

Hand-

we have released the new pictures of our Hand-Printed Christmas Cards , they are hand-fed one by one into our antique Golding printing press. Each color needs to be printed separately, so although the outcome is something special that you can feel on your fingertips making it stand out from digitally printed cards, there is a lot of love that goes into the creation of each card, from the initial idea, sketches, the color mixing, paper preparation, printing, cutting, folding and packing. But, we love it and that is why we are here. We are printing short runs of these cards (300 for each design) so the lucky recipient will be delighted to receive what is essentially, a limited addition piece of art on finest quality paper.
